Hi mine was 15.3 / 16hh as a yearling and now as a 2yr old hes 17.2hh and still growing. Hes expected to mature at 18-19hh. I think nearer the 19hh if he continues to grow at a similar rate. The people at the yard are amased at how big hes grown in such a short space of time

My William is 11 months and two weeks old exactly now.
He's was 16,2 already when we measured him about 2 weeks ago. I guess he's gonna be a big lad if he continues.

i just told richard u were wanting him to go up. i think he will he goes to corney fell and those areas.
Is henry by oxton loose valley? (bob) and which mare was he out of? my filly was very difficult to trim today rearing up bolting off the works! we had to twitch her in the end and she stood lovely after that. its the 1st time shes had her feet done with me, ive had her since march so i didnt know what to expect but it still surprised me because shes generally easy going.
what other horses do u have?

Hi guys, I've been asking every one recently and no body' seems to be able to help, my Stanley is 3Yrs old and is standing 17/17.1h and I would like to know how big he might get? His sire was 18.3 and his dam was 18.1so I'm hoping 18 at least 😖 I'm worried he's small for a shire 😅 Thanks 😊[/img]
