I was looking at a growth chart this weekend that said warmbloods and drafts have usually only about 60-74% of their growth done by the time they are 2 months old.

He is roughly 13.2 hands now, which using the low side of that figure puts him at 18 hh at full grown. I dont think he'll be anywhere near 18 hands but I do think he might top his parents at 16.3-17 hh.

My farrier was out Fridayand she hasn't seen him in 8 week, and said that if she didn't know his breed or parents she would have sworn he was a yearling QH.

**** yo.

What a lovely looking boy, is he part draught? He's certainly got a large 'noggin' on him!!
As for growth rates - also bare in mind that they all grow at different rates. If I used that formula for my hano youngster, he would be set to finish at 17.2hh, which as a maiden by out of a 16.1hh TB mare and a 16.3hh hano sire that tends to throw fairly small to smaller mares, is just not going to happen ;)

Handsome boy! Love the markings on his face. Please keep us updated on his growth.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

He is half Irish draught (Sire: Snowford O'Donnell RID) and half Swedish Warmblood (Traditional/Heavier European style, my mare Julep)

I know he's not going to be 18 hh :) but yes he's going to still be big!
