    Think he will be taller?

    I was trying to get an idea of how tall my colt might mature. I think he will be taller than both his parents, what do you think?
    His dam was a coming 4 year old and about 14.2 or 14.3. Her grandsire on her dams side was 15.2. Her sire was 15 hands.
    Joe's sire was about 14.3 hands, his sire was 15.2.

    When I measured Joe about 2 weeks ago, he was 11.1 at the withers and 11.3 at the rump. His front has probably caught up at least an inch since. His knee and hock height are currently at the same height as my 15 hand mare.

    Nice colt. Nice butt! How old is he? He looks to be around 7-8mnths? He looks leggy.

    Try measuring from the knee to the coronet band. If it's 15 inches, then it means he should mature around the 15 hand mark. If it's 14 1/2 inches than it means he should mature at that 14.2 mark.

    Oops, an age would have been helpful! He is 5 months, 1 week in those pics.

    I will try measuring his leg, do I meaure from the center of his knee? Or the bottom?
