Exclamation How big will my colt get????

I just bought a chincoteague pony colt at the wild pony auction this year. He is out of the biggest mare on the Island and a tall stallion. His full brother is 14hh at one year. He is 12hh now at 5 months. How tall will he get? How can I help him reach his full potential? Any advice would be appreciated!!

If I remember correctly if you Measure mid knee to where the hairline ends before the hoof should give you a rough estimate. Say it's 14 inches then he should be around 14 hands.
