Today I measured Caldelero`s height. He is 105cm ( 10.33 hh) high in his shoulder. I read somewhere that foals at birth are 60% of their adult size, I did some calculations and well... 10.33hh is 60% of 17.22 hh
He must be born into some grandgrandgrandparent - Smaile is about 16.24hh and Chevers was 15.94hh when he was 3years old.
That is not a bad thing though - Smaile`s and Chever`s paring had only one problem - small size. And look what I got - big, beautiful boy.
Also my vet said that he has some very fine legs for this age and he does look very correct. :) Now I just cannot decide about breeding Smaile this year. I somehow got a perfect horse for my needs - he`s got everything I wanted from a horse. Guess I will wait this year and, if I`ll want to, I can always breed Smaile next year. :)
