Exclamation Im kind of worried..

?I have a filly that is going to be a year old next month and I don't think that she is getting any bigger.. I mean she still in really small.... can she be small because maybe of her mothers past? Her mom was being starved to death the whole pregnant time before we rescued her.. but both of her parents are tall horses.. her mom was at least 16 hands and her dad we arent sure but they didnt have any small horses that they rescued.. I will try to get some pictures off the internet of what a 1 year old horse should look like and what she does look like for comparison tonight. And tomorrow I will try to get some pictures of her actually.

The first one is from the internet ... so is the second one.. this is a normal sized yearling I think.. and the second one I swear she is no bigger then the baby.. normal yyes or no? By the way she is over 11 months old..

The malnutrition definitely would have stunted her growth. As for the pictures, are you she is the height of that foal in relation to her mother? If so, she's not too stunted seeing as her mother is 16 hhs. What breed is she? She may just be a late bloomer because of the poor nutrition during pregnancy. Pictures of her would definitely help.

Looks like a normal yearling to me.
I'll find a photo of my now rising 2 year old as an almost yearling for you. He is a registered hanoverian, and had a brilliant start to life as well as his dam. He was bred at a professional and very well reknowned stud, all mares are in stunning condition.

At about 11 months


At around 9 months

hmm I could be over exagerating but I think she is smaller then the 9 month old photo.. she is paint QH cross almost positive because mom was buckskin.. and she turned out painted.. so pinto for the most part..

Bare in mind her breeding plays a part - it's pretty likely that a warmblood is going to be bigger at that age than a smaller bred QH x ;)

It is possible but if the foal has had adequate care less so.
We have 2 WBs by ambassador out of different dams. E was 3 when we gOt him starving.

M was 3 months. E is now 15h and 8yo M is 17.1 at 5 I know for a fact M dam is on the smaller side just over 15.

I wouldn't worry at all! Horses grow at all different rates, and actually, being on the smaller side at this age can be an advantage, bigger breeds and horses that grow/mature fast are at a bigger risk of joint injury or things like OCD in the hocks.

My QH was kind of a peanut at a year old, but he ended up right about where he should be (mom was 14.2, dad was 15.1, he is about 14.3 so perfectly between them).

Here is him at 1 year and 1 month old


This is him at 1 year 3 months, you can see he is a bit butt high, they tend to grow in their butt, then their hind ends catch up, kind of like that over and over again


And him at 1 year, 11 months old, if you can imagine him under the fluff, he tends to turn into a wooly mamouth in the winter if he isn't heavily blanketed


Hope that helps! Sorry to have no comparisons with mom, after he was weaned she moved to Texas :)
