2 year olds – yes definately possible, 3+ – yes, no questions asked unless other issues. I’d put a pramox down her neck, followed by a 5 day wormer if that makes no difference.

Absolutely against it. Horses aren’t done growing until they are 5, sometimes 6. People that breed 3 year olds are completely irresponsible.

Can a 12h old Arabian horse grow taller?

It is sad when someone emails us about a 12H, two or three year old Arabian horse they have bought that have been told their horse should mature several hands taller by the seller. Yes, miracles do happen; but probably not as often as many people would like. It is true, that most horses exhibit a growth spurt when they go to a training barn.

How tall is a 6 month old foal when gelded?

whereas if your foal is 12.3H or 51inches at 6 months, than 51/.86 =59 inches (14.3H) or 51/.83= 61 inches( 15.1H). Gelding can affect the final height of the mature size, by adding several inches. We have seen several cases of foals that were gelded young in life that although they grew slowly, they continued to grow past 5 years of age.

Where are the withers on an Arabian horse?

Some horse’s withers actually are half way up the horse’s neck as in some Saddlebreds and new Egyptian Arabian horses. Physical mass gives the illusion of more height than a very light weight, ultra refined horse.
