How big will my filly be???
 
I have a 4 day old Percheron cross filly. We measured her at 10.2 hands and approximately 115 pounds the morning after she was born. I've searched for Percheron growth charts with no luck. I'm curious about what size she might mature at. If anyone can point me in the right direction, offer any advice or just share their knowledge, I'd be more than grateful.

my crosses were 14 h at 6-8 months , 15 h at 1 yr. stayed the same size for a yr or so, and by age 6 were 16 + hands. they grow tall, then they get wide, then get taller, then get wider. and yet wider..

Not sure how tall my guy was when he was born (he looks tall in his foal pics, though), but he was 15hh as a 2yo and is now about 16.2hh as a 4yo. His sire was 15.1hh (APHA stallion Little Bit of Black) and his dam was about 17hh (Percheron mare).

I usually just upload my pics to Photobucket, then copy and paste the image ([IMG]) code into the body of the post (I'm on an iPhone, too).
