Its odd that you have about the exact same situation as I have with our little filly right now. She was severely stunted as well and although she's only 14 months old, she's about the same height as your girl, and the same color with a big star as well o.o she was very, very hairy too. I think it might have something to do with being malnourished. We clipped our filly because she was matted with feces from laying down (she is very, very ill at the moment and fighting for her life, unable to stand on her own unfortunately) I've been told though, that with proper nutrition that she should still grow quite a bit, even if she doesnt grow as tall as she would have normally. Our filly was supposed to be big as well, with 15.2 and 16.2hh parents. I don't expect her to be over 14 hands though.
1.5 lbs of rice bran sounds like a lot for a baby. Our full sized TBs only get 1-1.5 and they're 1,000-1,200 lbs. If you're going to give her that much, I'd ask your vet and increase it slowly. What kind of Omlene are you feeding?
