Horse height

I know you can not give me a accurate what she will be just looking for your best guess. Her mama was 14.3 almost 15 hands (daddy is not known as momma was prego at the auction house with no information)

She is 14 hands now and is 19 months (will be 20 months the end of this month)

She apears pure walker but daddy might have been a arabian but she is gaited.

So whats your guess? Is she going to be child sized forever. She is 14 hands but not very long at all (she wears a size 62-64 blanket)

Sorry for so many questions but this is my first baby I am raising, I always got them when they were done growing or pretty much done growing.

Since she's coming up on 2, she still has many years to finish growing. I'm sure she'll get past 14 hands easily, though I am not experienced enough to tell you a guesstimate of her final height, but perhaps she'll reach 15hands.

Have you done the string test?

All horses are slightly different :) Some might grow a lot around age 5, some may be done by 5.. some may grow fast at 3. But definitely not done growing up at nearly 2.

At 2 years of age she will still have some height to go typically unless you have overloaded her on feed for fast early growth. On average I've found the horses I have had sorta level out around 3-4 years of age on height. Only the draft cross really grew more in height after that.

As for length in the body - that will come. Your horse will lengthen out as well as fill out until at least 5, if not later.
