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.

Where do you measure too? The bottom of the belly or the top of back?

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.
