So I'm not the only one obsessing over height thought we could compare by listing foal age/height dam/sire breed/height and the wanted/predicted height
Please play along :)
Mabel 7 months 13.1hh withers (13.3 bum) out of a 15.2 CB cob type to a 16hh TB Ganton beltaine
Marmalade 10 months 13.2 withers (14hh bum) out of a 16.2 TB to 14.2 WB Aimbry Chester
Hoping for at least 15hh be really pleased for 16hh

Please play along :)

My Filly is 22 months by young 14.2hh 'running free colt' on the new forest out of a 12.2 NF. She is 12.2, ish at the mo - not stood on a hard surface and slightly bum high too. (will do correct measure in due course) Hoping she will get to 13.2. Got her in sept 2010 at 6 months and only 10.2!!

Florence is 9 months and is 13.3hh at the moment, with her bum higher

I am hoping she will stop at 15.2, as her mum is 15.2hh and dad 14.2hh (but with horse size grandsires) Everyone, but me, is assuming she will be 16.1hh ish. I put them right, obviously, and say NO!, she will make 15.2hh and no more ;)

I'll play :)

Blitz 8 month old cheval de Mérens 145 cm at the front and 150 cm at the back - ish

Mum: Salsa - Mérens (148cm)
Dad: Roka - Mérens (163cm)

Blitz was predicted at 155-157cm, but if it is +2 hands at yearling, then he'll end up bigger than dad (and I'll need a ladder to get on!)

Wolf's dam is 14.2, sire is 15 hands. He's 14.2 at rising 3, so hopefully still on track for 14.3-15hands which will be perfect for me.

Felix's parents are 15.1ish, and full bro is 15.2. However he's growing like a weed and his legs are long than bro's. He's 14.3 at rising 2, and still looks really immature. Heck knows how tall he'll end up being.

Ooo I like this game :D

Biscuit is 12 months old, last measured a few weeks ago and was 14.1hh at withers and 14.2/14.3hh bum high. Dam 15.2 ISH and sire TB, I think is 16hh. Was told he is expected to make 15.2hh maybe 16hh. But I have asked him nicely to stop at 15.2 :D:p but I really doubt he will .. so if anyone needs a few spare inches, come get them! haha ;)

I'm obsessed on height and comparing so happy to see this thread (not often on here!)..... I lost my mare and therefore orphaned filly foal at only 2months old so quite concious she might have taken a hit in terms of growth but comparing against all of these she seems in the normal range!

at 8mo - 13.2hh withers + 13.3hh at bum

Mare was 15.3hh + Sire was 16.3hh. Hoping for 16.1hh. She measures 16hh on the string test down the cannon bone.

I'll offer two of my youngsters as examples. Both are reg Oldenburgs and are at opposite extremes compared to the rest of my youngsters.

9 month old filly. Measured at 14.3hh this morning. Very even growth; slightly more uphill than downhill.
Dam; 16.1hh
Sire; 17hh
Filly expected to make 17.1hh

7 month old colt. Measured at 13hh this morning. Even growth.
Dam; 15hh
Sire; 17hh
Colt expected to make 15.1hh
