    And a few weeks ago before weaning fun began. Grey mare is her dam.

    I assume her show name is Bodacious Booty?

    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.

    Thank you. I'm really pleased with her and excited. She's my personal prospect, plan at this point is reined cowhorse. I kind of wish she wasn't going to be grey because her cute markings are going to blend in one day.

    Lol Face, waiting for papers now or it could have been. My grandpa tried to name one Whatabutt once when I was little and the AQHA rejected it. Waiting on papers to come back but if I get my first pick that wasn't used she will be "Docs Badger of Honor" Doc is my grandpa's old son of Poco Dell (filly's grandsire) that has been gone for quite some time and Lacey is Peppy San Badger bred.

    The little chunk is a whopping 12.3. She's 5 1/2 months old. She has been building that butt by spending her time in the pasture doing this...since very early on, she's 2 weeks old in these pics.

    This is going to be my daughter's English horse. He is a HOO (Hot Ones Only) yearling.

    Some babies that are about the size of mine!

    How big do you think that the leopard colt and the bay filly (8 months) will be?
        11-17-2012, 01:18 AM
    My colt is 12hh at 6 month's. Dams 15.2. Sire is 15.3. I think he's stunted because they weaned him as a 2 month old..and his mom was sick. Either way I love him. Oh, his cannon bone measures 15.5 inches so according to that method he should mature at 15.2/3. Ground to elbow doubled is 15.1 and a half. If he matures at 14.2 I still wouldn't care. He's my baby.
