Taller?

Oh my gosh. I want to know if you guys think he has grown taller.

January;


July;


He's gotten plump since we first got him. He was so skinny. I want to know if you think he is taller. I think he is, but I want to know what y'all think. He is 3 years old, 4 at the end of this month.

It's impossible to tell whether a horse has grown taller just from pictures unless there is the same person or tree or fence beside them in both pictures...at the exact same angle and in the exact same place.

Though the second picture isn't such great quality, it does appear that he's put some weight on. That can make a horse appear to be taller when you handle them. I went through that last fall with my 4 year old. I went out in the pasture and just knew that he'd grown another 2-3 inches. I brought him in to the barn and put a stick to him. He hadn't gotten any taller, but he had really bulked up and gotten much bigger in every other way.

Yearling
Without something to measure against that is the same in both photos you can't tell. Relation of the horse to what you are measuring against has to be the same as well. I really don't see much difference except some weight.
