Prince is a rather big lad... and up until now we've been saying we'd geld him and sell him.. although he was going to make under 34" i would retain him and see how he progressed.. but seeing as how he is 28" tall at 4 weeks... thought he'd easily make 38"... until someone mentioned it on my picture post that he could still be miniature size and to measure his cannon bones.

now... never done this before so hoping i've measured the right part as well! lol

Measured from just below knee to just above fetlock..

Back legs measure 13cm and front legs measure 10cm..

How would i work out what height he'd make?
