    Yea so he' just over 7 months. Im not concerned in the slightest. He' going to mature shy of 15 hands, and he is a slightly later baby than I wanted. The vets aren' concerned either.

    I appreciate the concern but this is what all true cutting/reining babies look like at this point

    Actually, I'm used to stock babies. Mostly Appaloosa.

    I still think at almost 8 months he is behind growth wise. Probably due to his illness. And possibly because he was weaned too early.

    He is in fact, a late baby.
    For a horse who is going to mature around 14.2-.3 , he is not behind. You can't really use these pictures to determine growth from a few months ago to now, but I will grab some confo pictures this weekend.
    Like I said, I appreciate the concern, but in working with some of the top vets in Colorado, and they said his illness is not going to affect his growth at all

    Reining/Cow horses tend to smaller height wise than a typical stock horse. Most western all around/WP based stock show horses tend to be more like 15.2 to 16. My reiner was 14.3. And Trouble's sire is also 14.3. Don't know about his dam.

    It' been awhile since I've updated, and trouble is in a funky growth phase, but here are a few pictures!
    Please ignore his feet. My farrier had to reschedule to tomorrow :(

    He is wonderful to work with; incredibly smart, soft, sensitive, and he's a bit lazy. He puts in the minimum effort to get the job done, but he can go all day! (Not that we work on things all day, there' really only so much ground work you can do)

    I think he's going to keep a bit leaner of a head, which I love !!
