CecilliaB, I never even thought about asking about his sire or siblings growth rate, but I'm emailing the stallions owner now, so I'll be sure to ask her and let you know. I do know that his sire was 15.3hh and his dam was 15.1hh.

As for everyone else, thanks for the critique and the compliments on Finn. I'm somewhat small statured, so if all he grows to is 14.2hh, I'm happy, I would just prefer if he grew to 15hh.

dirtroadangel, we actually did try the string test, and it didn't look very good haha. I'm hoping that it's just wrong because he was too old to try that test on :P

NdAppy No, not riding, I've just sat on him a few times. But yes, same one!

Grace, beauty, spirit, fire
Feeling the wind beneath his feet is what I live for.
Knowing he is of the wind, gives us freedom.

Would not be surprised if he makes 14.2...even might squeeze up into 15hh later on just not really sure he will be much over that. I think he will look like a tank though :)

Piaffe I bought him at two months old, and I just visited him and trained him at his birth home until four months when he was weaned :) I would have liked to have waited longer, but I moved, and he came with me. Trailered amazing, no problems at all :)
