Did his head really grow that much in just 4 months!!
I got a halter for my boy back in July when I bought him. At the time it fit good, with some slack left in it. Now though, its on the last holes and is too tight. Could his head really have grown that much in just four months? When will it stop growing?
He must be going through a growth spurt or something, cause his breast plate doesn't fit him any more either.
He just turned three in July and is a standardbred. He's 15.2 right now, will he get much taller?
His halter now is a full sized horse one. What size should I get him?

Yes, he can get bigger (although probably not much). One of my mares kept growing till 5 yo.

Haha that's why I say you should always buy used tack till they stop growing :P that or swap it down with people who have younger horses that can fit into it.

But he could get bigger, which is why it's good to have a few extra sets on hand when working with a growing horse.
