This work aims to evaluate the relationships between body measurements of foals from birth to twelve months of age and mature animals of the Mangalarga Marchador breed. The body weight, height, length, width, girth of the horses were determined. Corporal Index (CI), Meloscopic Index (MI), Dactilo-thoracic Index (DTI) and Weight in Cannon Index (WCI) were used to evaluate the relationships between measures.
