15 hands at 14 months???
I've about given up hope of having a small enough horse to comfortably ride LOL. Oh, well, he's still my sweetie :D

Rafe: 14 month old BelgianxQH now standing at 15 hands, hips are 15.2 :shock:

Yep, that's a full horse sized halter

I was really worried he would toe out badly on the front but he has straightened up as he grew. Still does a bit but nothing compared to when he was a baby.

Anyway, that's my sad story about my poor monsterous baby :lol::lol:.

How sweet!! Such a cutie :]. What are you planning on using him for?

annaleah 09-23-2010 08:41 PM

oh my goodness!! Thats a monster of a horse!! My limit is 15h! but then again I am a shorty, so I must draw the line somewhere! Wonder how tall he will end up being!

smrobs 09-23-2010 08:43 PM

I am planning on him being my next ranch horse but if he gets too tall to load in the trailer with a saddle on, I may have to adjust my plans LOL.

I string tested him a few months ago and it said he should mature to 17 flat. I guess we'll see how accurate that is :D.

Holy crap! That's tall! If he doesn't work out just bring him on over to Georgia :wink: LOL

wow! What a big guy! I love the tall ones! =D

My friend had a horse that at 2 and half was 17 hands. He was a percheron cross. Its so hard to think of horses like that as just babies when they're that large! haha!

HAHA... You should talk with Indy... Finn is 15.3 at 17 months I believe. He and Fiona both string tested around 19 hands from what I recall!

God he is one hunk of a horse! Watching him grow is pretty fascinating. Makes me want my own baby.

Aww..Rafe!! *heart* I just love him. I can't believe how big he is for being so young. He looks almost adult size! He lost his baby looks so quickly!!!

My BIL's TB filly that was born on our place is about 4 ish months old and I'm guessing she's a good 13 hands already. I'm planning on taking out the tape and measure her tomorrow. She's huge compared to my QH weanlings.
