Have a question about Spirit. He is currently standing 14.1 hands at withers...And 14.3 at his butt. A friend of mine said she doesn't think he will get much taller and that there is no way he will reach 15h... and will be too short for me. He is qh/paint but grade and no known sire/dam history so can't use them for a height guesstimate. This past winter up until when I measured him in mid March or so he was standing at a steady 13.3h. When i measured again end of May...he was at 14.1. So a solid 2" in about a 2 month period. He is still very much a baby at one month shy of being 2 years old. To ride him comfortably (for me) he would need to reach 14.3 minimum but I was "hoping" for 15.1-2 originally. I just personally don't like riding anything under 14.3...I am a taller rider lol so that is my reasoning. 14.3 has always been my absolute minimum requirement when horse shopping. 14.2 and it's a nope lol. I know it's only one inch but it's my preference...gotta draw the line somewhere lol. So...opinions? At least 14.3 right? Any chance of my desired 15+ though? I personally think he's going to turn out just fine. He's only just coming on two so has plenty more time to grow a bit. She however believes that their height at 2 is pretty permanent. At this point just his withers leveling out with his butt would put him right at my minimum height wants lol.
