Really hard to say. In my opinion, based on typical breeding, I'd say no. However, you said the stud sires big foals, bigger then himself, so it's a possibility.
My 14hh Arab produced a 14.3hh purebred Arab. Never seen the sire, but as a purebred, I doubt he was taller then 15hh (knowing the bloodlines around here). The same mare was bred back to a 17hh Hanoverian, hoping for size. Her filly topped out at 15hh! Very disappointing!
Those smaller mares have a bad habit of sucking the size right out of foals, regardless of the size of the stud. However, I have a Paint filly standing at 14.2hh as a 2 year old, her dam was only 14hh but her sire was 16hh. I'm hoping for a minimum of 15hh.
It's really a toss in the dark, I doubt she'll ever go over 16hh, but should mature out close to that if she's this young still.
And absolutely BREATHTAKING animal BTW.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
