When do they stop growing???

At what age do QHs usually stop growing height wise? And what about TBs?

My APHA has alot of foundation QH blood and the the famous racehorses TB blood so just wondering at what age you think she will finish growing height wise? Also at what age do you think she will finish filling out? Her sire is 16.1 and her dam is 15.1 she is just over 15.0 now at 4 yrs. What do you think? Thanks!

I know Fresians keep growing until the age of 8 and warmbloods until 7 so just wondering about QH/TBs thanks! Out of curiosity which breeds grow the fastest? Is it ponies or drafts or arabs? I thought one of those stopped growing at about 3? Is that right?

Don't know about TB's but QH's grow height-wise for about 5-7 years and width-wise for about 10 years....
