Our yearling colt, Peppin in a TB. His dam is 16hh and his sire is 16.1hh. He is already 15.3hh at the butt and just barely a year old O_o he was string tested to be about 16.2hh as an adult.
His little half sister though, isn't so lucky. She had a very rough go at it and even though she's 9 1/2 months old, she honestly looks like a 2-3 month old is build and height :/ she isn't ours anymore as we were only fostering her, but she is actually believed to be a dwarf. Her dam was 15.3hh and her sire was the same as Peppin's, 16.1hh. At 8 months old though, when she left us, she was only 10.3hh. She also has severe sickle hocks and likely will never be ridable. Poor little gal.
ETA- this may have something to do that she was orphaned very early on. We aren't quite sure.
