She is halter trained, picks up all for feet, I can tie her anywhere, she has just started lunging and I have just got her over her fear of plastic!!
It sounds like you really care for her :) That makes me happy, I love seeing youngsters really prosper by having someone that understands them, and enjoys just letting them be young for a little bit!
Be careful lunging too much, that is hard on their young joints. Keep it to a minimal, if you want to exercise her, then desensitizing training is great!! Set up little obstacle courses that you can walk her through, this is a great window to start introducing all those "scary" things she will need to be used too in life.
And again don't worry, I can almost guarantee she will hit at LEAST 14 hands by the time she's done growing (as others have said, around the age 5.).
