11 month old QH filly

hi I am not sure this post goes here but I was not sure where else to put it. Ok I have an 11 month old QH horse filly, her dam is a 15.2hh QH mare and her sire a 15.1-15.2hh QH, she is about 13.3hh now, I was just wondering if she is average size and how big she should mature to.
Thanks

I'm really not good at heights, but my guess would be she will be around 15 hands. Could you please post some pictures (I love looking at pictures!)?

Aww! Super cute! I'd say 15.1 - 15.2

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

She's cute . It is most common that a foal with grow to around the same height as it's parents, but there are also times when the foal is basically a height 'crop out' and is either really short or really tall compared to it's parents. You can estimate their mature height by doing a string test. There are 2 methods, both of which can be seen here. There is some debate to the accuracy of this test but my Grand-pa swore by it his entire life.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

haha ya I tried the \one where you measure fron her corronet band to her knee earlier today and it says like 16hh, haha not sure if that's right, her dam was bred extremly young though so I supose it may have stunted her growth a bit.

LOL! I love that you point out it is winter, just in case someone misses all the snow

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

She is so cute

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

I have a 3 year old Qh mare who is just 14.1hands and both her parents are 15.1, I have been told that she still could grow some more because of her breeding some two eyed jack QH don't fully mature tell they are 4 or 5 years old. Goodluck she is a cutey.
