OK I adopted Hunter in July 09. He was almost 2 years old and wasn't being fed properly for his age. He was very ribby and had no muscles. I don't know much about his first 18 months as he was originally purchased at an auction. I do know from last Dec until July he was in a paddock with a bunch of other horses and had to fight for his food. He has gained weight and grown since I got him. He has also been gelded and had hernia surgery so has been through a lot in the last 6 months.
He was at his first day at the trainers yesterday and we sticked him at 13.1.
We know he is a qh/cross but not sure with what. Was told pintaloosa, we think maybe arab or welsh mountain pony. Anyways, we did the string test and also measured from middle of the knee to the coronet and he came out at 14.3. Is it possible for him to grow that much. My trainer thinks so but I am not sure. Just interested in some other opinions.
