    Foal
    Smile Predicting Size

    Hi All.

    I've not been on this site in ages, but have always enjoyed the feedback from other memebers.
    New question, and its just for curiosity here..

    I have a really lovely colt that my mare had in may 2012, she is 14.2 arab x tb and after going to a fair few stallion yards we went for a 16.1 dwb x tb in the hope of a 15h-ish final horse size for the foal.

    Now I know that there are always exceptsions and many generations from way back can come to the fore.. but just for fun and curiosity really..has anyone out there got a full up size from the above sized parents?

    He is 8months old and about 13h at present and my dream come true and I often visulise him all grown up and wonder what size he will stop at, not that it matters to me tho.

    Curious...anyone have any ??

    I would have to guess at 15.2 for the final height but that's just a guess.
    My farrier has a 3 yr old purebred Arabian colt who is currently 16.2 hands high, a full hand taller than his sire and nearly 2 hands taller than the dam :O

    Unfortunately there is no way to predict completely a horse's final height. Your best bet would be to use the string test.
