She looks so good!!! Out of curiosity, how tall is she when you stand next to her? I feel like Vee is such a midget compared to Sky & the other babies! Lol

Well Vee is a couple months younger than Sky and some of the other babies on here! So keep that in mind.. I felt the same way about Sky (and still do from time to time). But the other filly she's with is a yearling and a HUGE warmblood and Sky is only 8.5 months so have to keep reminding myself that of course she won't be as big as Duet (the other filly). Although recently I think she's starting to catch up to Duet because she doesn't look AS tiny next to her. When I'm just looking at her by herself she still looks small to me but I think that is more due to the fact that she is sorta scrawny and lanky. Which she's been like since she was born. Definitely not one of those "beefy" foals haha that would be the TB side of her! I haven't measured her in awhile so don't know exactly how tall she is.. but her butt is at my chest, and her withers a little below. Here's a pic to show how tall she is compared to me. It's from a few weeks ago but should give you an idea. I'm 5' 4"

Wow she looks bigger standing next to you than in her other pictures! I'm 5' 6" and Vee's back comes up to the bottom of my ribcage, so I guess not too far off for her age. Her butt is so high right now lol. Sky definitely has some legs, holy cow! She looks great. And she has an awesome shoulder...she is going to grow into all that lankiness and be a nice looking girl

Sky is going through another butt high phase as well.. just when she was starting to level out, her butt shoots up again I was there today grooming her and working with her a little so actually got to measure her! She's 12.3 (very close to be 13 hands) at the withers and 13.2 at her bum. So yeah she's definitely butt high again! And she was super for when I worked with her. Walked out very politely, introduced her to the grooming stall and then brought her into the indoor to walk around a little. And this was with her being away from Duet which I wasn't sure how would go because they are inseparable, which is why I'm trying to work with her away from Duet a little more. Duet was outside in the paddock attached to their stall when I snuck Sky out and about 1/2 way through working with her Duet finally realized she had vanished and then started screaming for Sky. Then we had some naughty moments! But she settled and then we were able to work through it luckily! I was like really Sky you were totally fine until Duet started whinnying to you.. silly horses

She looks so thrilled haha
Omg...I died laughing at the last picture...she's like "Really Mom?"

I'm so glad you measured her...I'll have to measure Vee tonight (because I'm a freak like that ) Everyone keeps telling me how small she is (including my vet) but I'm sending a constant flow of growing vibes to her daily lol. I know she's going to be small anyways, but at least if I know she's somewhat close to the others her age it makes me feel better. Of course, I choose to compare my midget Arab (who will probably only see 14 hands) to Miss Sky the TB who will probably reach at least 15.2!

Hahah yeah she was not too pleased with me! Was probably thinking "first you took me away from my buddy now your making stand and pose for pictures, ugh!" Let me know what Vee measures if you do end up doing that tonight! I'm curious now. How tall are her sire and dam? I have no idea how talk Sky is going to end up being. Her dam is probably 15.1 at most and her sire is a 16.3 LEGGY tb so guessing she'll be somewhere in between the two. As long as she ends up being taller than her momma I'll be happy!

Haha! I'll let you know what she measures out to be...her sire and dam are not very big...daddy is only like 14.2-14.3 and Mum is like 14.1 But some of the best endurance horses are the small ones so I have no doubt that she will do just fine...plus I can already tell she's going to be a tank! I may just have to lay off the little debbie snack cakes
