Prince is just coming up 3 months old.

Dad is smaller than mum....

So where's he hidden the grow bag!

Nope... can't work out where this height has come from.....

Mum is 33.5", dad is 33".. both have miniature breeding all under 34" for a good 3 generation or more back...

Prince is currently stood at 29" tall! Taller than my yearling!

Very pretty little guy!
I have one of those big boys too! Both Spots parents were around 33", and he was right around 33" -34" when he came to me at 5 months old. The last time I measured him, which was probably a couple months ago, he stood 38 1/4" at 2 years old!
I love that he grew though, I'm very happy with his height!

I am glad to see this posting as well. I have a filly that is just over 3 months old and she is 33" -- dam is 36" and sire is 30" so I expected she would mature a tall B based on dam's side but she has really shot up there... I am hoping she will slow down so that she doesnt go over

He is a big boy! Don't the mares look awkward trying to comfortable to feed. Not to mention the foals who almost have to get down on their knees to reach the milk bar!

My Willow is the same. Born at around the 20 inch mark and has not stopped growing. Her mother was 34 inches, her Dad was 31 inches.

Willow at 11 months old would already be around 33 inches.

I don't understand where her height came from either. Must be a throw back to generations past.

I really don't mind what size package she comes in.

I know how all of you feel! I needed a stallion that would add some leg, so searched long and hard for just the right boy. I LOVE this guy, but I will be on pins and needles until he tops out. At 4 months, he measures 29 1/2". Hope he squeeks in at 34" at maturity.
