Registered and branded Weser-Ems at the Yancey Farms GOV inspection in July. Victor will mature as a large pony (curently 13.3+ hh). He was 13.1 in October of 2010, and we've had several pony breeders tell us that they estimate height at maturity by adding one hand to their height in the fall of their yearling year, so we therefore expect him to mature around 14.1 hh. We have left him a stallion through this point, as his wonderful temperament doesn't require gelding and we feel that he is nice enough to be a potential stallion prospect.
