At what age do a horse's feet quit maturing?
My question of the day. If you have a young horse, at what age do their feet quit growing size-wise? Or I guess I should say, at what age are they the largest/widest they are likely to get?
For instance, my 22 month old has what I would consider to be small feet for his size. Will they continue to get larger or at about 2 years of age, is what you see what you get?
I'm kind of stumped as to why he would have small feet as his mom (Fox Trotter) has good sized feet and so did his sire (QH). What do you guys think? Right now he is about 15.1, 1100 lbs and his feet are 5 inches wide. I'm not sure what that is in horseshoe size but I am guessing my youngster has size "0" feet. Will he be stuck with that size?
