Yet another Adult Height question....

Ok, so I know there are a zillion threads on this, and I've read most of them....

Kiera is *almost* 11 months old (all we know is that she was born in may, no birth date), and she is half quarter horse, half Percheron. I'm fairly sure her dam was 14.3, though I can't remember if her sire was 17 or 18 hands.

Kiera is now 13.3 hands in front, and about 14.1 hands in the rear at ~ 11 months. I did the measurement of the cannon bone awhile back and it gave me an adult height of 15 hands....but I read now that with a short cannon bone...or with drafts....that measurement can be off.

2) Is her height now about average to her age?
3) What kind of adult height would you guys guestimate, given her breeding and her current height?

I'm past wondering if she will be able to carry me, she's built like a fricken tank, even now. I'll update pix after we brush out more of her shed and get her to stand straight.
