How tall are your weanlings?

Just out of curiousity, I wanted to compare my colt's size to other weanlings here. How tall are your babies currently (and at what age)? How tall were the parents? What breed?
I had expected Joe to be about the size of his parents 14.3, but now I'm thinking he might be a bit taller. Last time I checked he was 11-11.1 hands at the withers and probably 11.3-12 hands at his rump. He is 4 1/2 months and his knee/hock height is about level with my 15 hand mare.

The high point right where the neck starts to connect to the back. The hump. I love that you just made me laugh! Not laughing at you! If you want to know body parts of a horse, google it. It will help. Hope ur not mad at me for laughing.
