Check her teeth. Does she have six teeth top and bottom? If she does she is around a year. If she has 4 top and bottom she is 6-9 months. She is pretty I love mustangs I used to have one he was the most hard working horse I ever owned.

Thanks! I will check her teeth again tonight to see. I've looked at her teeth and thought how small they were but didn't think to count them....

I saw 6 on the top but don't know about the bottom, she really wanted to go outside and DH was not being very helpful. We're still working on ground manners and standing still:)

ok. She stands 12.2 right now, does that seem short for a yearling?

No problem there is a way of measuring their leg to tell how tall a horse should get but I forget how at the moment.

It's a string test. We did it on her and it measured 15 inches but not sure how accurate it is. You measure from the coronet to the middle of knee on the foreleg. We measured our 12 yr old mare to 14 inches and she is 14.1 hh. Only time will tell:)
