My filly was just about that height when I got her and she was 11 months :) I was bowled over that she is at the 15hh mark now just before turning 3 and she string tested @ 15.1.

We can just never really know with these babies can we? I love that stallion choice as well. Such a pretty boy.

My madam was 13.2 at the croup at 11 months so I live in hope yet! I'll be all good as long as she's taller than 14 hands, assuming she matures to be a solid girl. I'd just love her to be big enough that I can breed her to Cougar. I know larger size differences can and do happen but not for her first and only, breeding a maiden is risky enough without adding a much larger stallion to the mix. I only want one foal from her, though I know my mum wouldn't complain if I put her to a taller Welsh cob so I guess that's always an option... or if I bred her to an Arab to get a registerable half-Arabian and sold it as a show prospect? But it'll only happen if she matures quality enough, I'm incredibly picky with stallions and the mare puts as much in genetically so there's really no point in breeding a mare that I don't love everything about.

Yes I absolutely adore NP Cougar, he's jumping bred both sides of his pedigree and what I've seen of his progeny I have liked. If any foal I bred inherited even half his talent I'd be delighted I'm telling you now!
