Measuring Miniatures -
Estimating adult size when mature

  • Measure from the middle of the front knee to the coronet band (top) of the hoof. Multiply times 4 and add 1". Best done after 3 months of age.
  • Birth height plus 10 - 12". Example: 20" at birth, plus 10" = 30" (or plus 12" = 32").
  • Back leg, top of hock to ground x 2 + 2". Example: 16" x 2 = 32" + 2" = 34"
