Study of average performances in a population have a huge importance because, regarding a population, the average of phenotypic value is equal with average of genotypic value. So, the studies of the average value of characters offer us an idea about the population genetic level. The biological material is represented by 93 Hucul horse from Prislop bloodline divided in 3 stallion families analyzed at 18, 30 and 42 months old, owned by Lucina Hucul stood farm. The average performances for cannon bone perimeter were 17.25 cm at 18 months, 18 cm at 30 months old and 18.57 cm at 42 months old. We can observe a good growth rate from one age to another and significant differences between sexes. The average performances of the character are between characteristic limits of the breed.
