When do horses heads stop growing?

When I bought Flash last year, he fit into a regular sized halter (he was 3 at the time). Within a few months, he outgrew that one and I bought him a warmblood sized one. Now the warmblood size is almost too small as well. It only has two holes left on the nose and head. His head just keeps getting bigger and bigger!
When do they usually stop growing? If he keeps this up, he'll be in a draft sized halter soon.
I know standardbreds have large heads, but this is getting silly.

Horses don't stop growing until about 6 to 7 years of age and the skull and teeth are some of the last things to finish fusing.
