Like everyone else, I believe he will grow. Especially because of the malnutrition, he may be stunted a bit but should grow more. He could grow until he's 5 or 6. Heck, my TB cross mare grew until she was 7!

My mare was 5 when I got her 6 months ago and hadn't had proper nutrition and hadn't been worked. Textbooks say she'd stop growing by then, but once I started her on a proper diet and training schedule she grew from 15 to 15.3. She grew like a see saw, her rump was so high it was very discernable.

Wow thanks you guys. I have always been hopeful but I guess I just needed some backup. I have been researching this and a lot of people say they are almost their full height by now. But I know he will grow :0) I won't give up on my lil man

Aw how adorable he looks much better. I think he will still grow. Nice horse!

Wow, his coloring is absolutely gorgeous. I love those darker palominos. It woudn't suprise me at all if he gets to 14.3. He is still pretty much a baby and has several more years of growing to do. My bay mustang shot up another 2 inches in height (from 14 to 14.2) after I started riding him the fall of his 5 year old year. Just keep him on good balanced feed and give him time to reach his potential.

Yah! An update! He's absolutely GORGEOUS! He really does look like he has the same size/stature as my Lillie. Have you tried the measuring method (measuring from the middle of the knee to the coronet band)? They say one inch = 1 hand in height. I'd love to know what his measures. I'll throw a recent picture of Lillie on here for you to compare. She's 21 months.

Ps. I just think he and Lillie are going to be late bloomers when it comes to height.

Thanks you guys you should see him in the summer, can't wait to take picts then. He is a gorgeous golden color.

He has grown and still is so thanks for the votes of confidence.
