So about a year ago I got a "TB" 21/2 year old mare. I love her, but She is pretty small... about 15.0 in the shoulders, and 15.2 in the hind end. I know she still has a bit to grow (hope so) but the owner before me said she was bred to race... she is so small I have a feeling she isnt full TB... like has some sort of pony breed in her maybe? They said she is regesterd but thru the last 4 owners they werent able to get ahold of the papers.. all I know is the 8 months beofre I baught her she was ina stall with no turnout, and before that she was on pasture since she was weaned off her mother. I am courius to see what you all think of her breed. Hope some of these pictures help. Thanks

Just because she's small doesn't mean she isn't a full TB. I have a TB mare that is JUST at 15hh. She is purebred because I have her papers and her jockey card, although she never raced. Looks like a TB to me.

She looks full TB to me. I've met many 15h TBs too.

Yep full tb, my old tb mare was JUST 15hh. She was registered with papers, had racing records and I even saw her race once.
You can get some really small tb's, I've seen them at 14.2hh before. To me she definately looks like a full tb.

Also don't forget that many horses can and do grow up until age 7. 15 hands isn't a bad size for a 2 year old, to be honest.

My mare Demi is very small (15hh on a tall day) and is 100% TB. If you want a size comparison, you can see pics in my virtual barn under "Nancy Drew"

I think she's full TB.
