I have a question about growth/growing rates in Minis. Do minis stop growing at 3 years old or do they continue to grow until 5 years? Im curious because Sarah is butthigh by about 2 inches. She's 32 inches in the front and 34 inches at the butt. She's 3 years old. Her breeding is good. She has alot of foundation stock and quite a few nice horses in her background. She's heavily Del Terras bred on her mothers side. So I don't think it's bad breeding.. but is her being butt high a conformational fault? Or does she still have more growing to do? I heard that they can grow up until five years old. Her front legs are shorter then her back ones.. :P
Here's her pedigree.
