Those that have yearlings?

Can you please tell me how tall your yearling is?
My guy turned one on June 26 and he's only 13.1 right now. The vet and farrier think he's going to be a big boy but I just don't see it.
Feel free to post pics!

My filly turned 1 on May 2, I'd guess that she's 14.3 or 15hh... I haven't measured her since she was about 10 months old. Her dam is 15.2hh & her sire is 17hh, I'm hoping she hits 16.2hh+.

Here's a picture of her next to my 15.2hh QH-

She's an Oldenburg out of a TB, by the way. I'm 5'9" and her hip bone is at my shoulder...

^^ loooove your horses ;)

I work with 8 yearlings and have one of my own. They range in size from 13hh - 14.3hh. Guess it depends on many variables as to how tall they will be as yearlings

It totally depends on the breed or type of horse too.

We have reined cowhorses. All of ours are generally 13 or 14hh as yearlings. However, my friend has Oldenburgs and her yearsling are fifteen to sixteen hands already. Scary differance o.o

My yearlings were tiny when I got them. Lack of nutrition and proper care. QH was 13'1, Paint 13'2 (on the best, I think even shorter). Now at 6 years old QH is 14'3, Paint 15'2.

This is my filly yearling. She is booming. She is surpassing my arab mare who is 14hh. I think she is going to be big. I will try and get better pics. This was their first day out in the new pasture. I honestly can't wait to see how big she's going to be. He mom is 15hh and dad is 15hh +.

Gotta say after looking at the first pic, that's a terrible pic of the filly. She looks like a fat pig. Well she is but not that bad. I will get better pics soon. Sorry. I will measure her today too. Isnt it fun to see them grow?

Koda (Appaloosa) turned 1 in June and he measured 13.3 about a month ago.
