sorry but not sure what you are worried about. Were his parents really tall? Hes probably not done growing either way but your post leaves a lot of questions.

Try this method to give you the height your horse may mature to be: Determine Horse Mature Height

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

At 2 years old, he still has 3 years left to grow. How tall were you expecting him to get?

Did you actually see the sire and dam? Are you certain they actually are the parents of your colt? If so, then it might give you an idea of his possible adult height. But only a 'possible' idea.

At 2 years old and according to his breed, he might have growth spurts for several years yet.
