arabians

I have an arabian gelding who will be 2 october but i'm worried about his height he is only 13.3 right now does anyone know to what age arabians grow to. This is my first young arab got him when he was 10 months and he has grown alot since then but it seems like he just stopped growing this summer.My arab mare is 14.2 and I am very happy with that height and thought that was what he would be.his motheer was about 14.2 and father about 15h
Anybody with opions on this please!!

She may grow more.
Arabians aren't a very large breed, they only get to about 14/15 hands.

Padron was amazing. And I think he was stunning to look at.



But anyways - Your horse may grow more. Like PoptartShop said, they're not usually a big breed. Our half Arab is only about 14.2.

The world is best viewed through the ears of a horse.

Arabs are notoriously late bloomers. My "old man" (now age 20) did not reach his full height of 15 hands until he was five. I got him at 2 and he was probably only 14 or 14.1 tops. Give him good feed, free choice hay, and lots of love and he will grow up just fine!

PS - it's a shame they did not register him, Padron and Bask bloodlines are very desirable. My gelding is double Bask. If you can find out the sire and dam you might be able to register him still, it is costly but AHA sometimes runs "specials" to get more people to register their older horses.
