I don't know much about breeding, but I'm trying to learn... I was wondering, is there any way to determine about how big a foal will be before breeding two horses? I'd love to breed Roxy at some point (PLEASE, do NOT start bashing. This is a hypothetical question. If I choose to breed her, it will not be for several years and I'd, obviously, be far more educated etc.) and I found an adorable pony stud. Roxy is about 15h, he's 12. Would it be safe to say you're pretty much guarenteed a pony from the mix? It would make sense, but you never know with horses
So anyway, is there any "general rule" or something that you can use to determine about how big a baby could be? I just figure what the average of the parents' heights are should be reasonably close?
