All I can say is he's adorable. I mean, they could make a stuffed animal based 100% on him, he is that cute.

Sorry, I have nothing helpful to tell you, LOL.

WOW, what a cute horse and his sire and dam...simply stunning! As for his height, I'm not sure. I've heard tell that the dam gives the foal their height, but maybe that's just an old wive's tale.

I know people on here are experienced doing a "string test". Me, not so much. But hopefully somebody can chime in...

I'm a big Gypsy fan and am looking to getting some in the future for trail/guest horse. He seems like an absolute treasure and is cute as a button. What are your future plans with him?

I enjoyed your pictures a lot!

My best guess - he will grow 1.5 inches based on the old horsemanís guide of: a yearling will grow three more inches, a two year old two more inches and a three year old one more inch. 😀

Whatever his height, heís going to be a smart looking fella.

Hi he's adorable..I have a 7 yr old gypsy cob called Bobby x
Can't say for definite how tall he will be but if his sire is 14hh then i wouldn't think he will get bigger than that lol.
Here's my Bobby.. I measured him a few days ago he is 14.3-15hh.
Sorry for the sideways picture I think its because I sent it from my iPhone lol.

My bet is he will likely be between 13.2-14hh if that's his parent's size. Not that it's a given - Noddy, the biggest horse in the world came out of standard sized parents!
