Question Just a curiosity on potential height.

My friend's mare just had a colt, biggest little guy I have ever seen out of a QH mare.
Mare is 15.1
Sire is 15 even
Colt just turned a month old and is already 11 hands. He's a monster for his age. He's almost 20 inches across at the chest and 44 inches at the withers.

Can anyone give me a guesstimate on how big this boy will end up being?
I told Shannon I would ask :)

Thanks

I'm not sure on the specifics (do need to look it up soon though) or the correct age to do it but they do have a "string test" they will give you a pretty **** close estimate of the height a foal will grow to be.


Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!
