At what ages do you find your minis to go through "butt high" stages while they are growing? Or is it different for each horse...or does it "typically" happen around 3 mos or 6 mos etc? Thanks!

My mare looked butt high for a year. From about 6 months to about 18 months. She looked a little knock kneed too but grew out of both. She's quite the pretty girl these days.

When would you wonder if it is growth or bad conformation. Both parents are nice and level, filly has looked very butt high since 3 mos, is currently 6 mos and still very butt high...

All 3 of my younger girls were butt high from about 8 months old until about 18 months or so.

It's different stages. If you notice them butt high, they are getting ready or are in the process of growing.
