MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE HEIGHT OF YOUR MINI! THERE ARE MANY BREEDERS/SELLERS THAT TELL YOU YOUR HORSE WILL NOT GROW ANYMORE OR THAT IT WILL ONLY BE THIS SIZE WHEN IN FACT IT WILL GROW TALLER! ALWAYS GET CURRENT PICS OF THE HORSE PLUS A PICTURE OF THE MINI NEXT TO A MINI MEASUREING STICK OR YARD STICK TO PROVE HEIGHT! MINIS GROW TO 3 YEARS OF AGE REGARDLESS IF THE TAIL TOUCHES THE GROUND OR NOT. A 25" MINI OR 26" MINI IS NOT GOING TO STAY THAT SMALL IF IT IS ONLY A YEAR OLD IT WILL GROW SEVERAL MORE INCHES.
Make sure to check the height of your mini!! I get emails almost daily from mini owners who want to know what their miniature horse is going to mature to. If you own a young miniature or are looking at a young prospect to purchase. This height chart is a must have!
You can also google for Miniature Horse Height Chart to find similar charts! In the picture attached to this ad is a Height Chart that will help you in determining the height at maturity of your current or future prospect! For Instance as the chart displays a 25" yearling will mature to 28". It will not grow only 1 inch more. It is a known FACT that miniatures grow until 3 years of age and grow SEVERAL inches - at least 2-3 inches from whatever their TRUE yearling height is.
We have been breeding, training and showing miniatures for over two decades and find this chart very helpful and VERY accurate. There are many other well respected world champion producers and breeders that also use this height chart as a guide and like us have found it to be very accurate in determining height estimates for young miniature horses.
So make sure to get a current height on the mini and then cross check any young miniature horse you are purchasing with this chart so you have a true idea of what the mini will mature too!
