Looking for Barrel Prospect

I am looking for a barrel horse prospect and I found 2 fillies that I like close to me. Just wondering what everyoneís opinion is of them and what you think of the price.

The first is a 2010 Bay Filly out of MRH Fancy Money and BB Dash of Sweetness. Here is the Sireís bloodlines and website info which has a video of him in action.
http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/mrh+fancy+moneyhttp://www.bridgemanhorses.com/red-dun-stallion-services.htm This is the Damís bloodlines. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/bb+dash+of+sweetness They want $1,200 for her.

The second is a 2010 Red Dun Filly also out of MRH Fancy Money but the dam is Starborne Six. Here is her bloodlines. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/starborne+six They want $1,800 for this filly.

The first picture is of the 2010 Bay filly, the second is of the 2010 Red Dun filly, and the third is of the Red Dunís dam.

Just wondering if you think either of these girls would make a good barrel horse, which one you like better, and what you would pay for them. If you donít like either of them maybe you would know of a different place I could find good horses. I do want a 2010 baby and these are the nicest ones I could find within my price range. As you have probably figured out I am from Manitoba. I donít really want to get a horse from the states as they will cost more and shipping will cost a lot too. I want something with decent bloodlines and not just something that someone says will be good.

Thanks.

I don't really know, so that is why I am not voting. But they are both very cute! And either of them would become good barrel racers with training.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Need better pictures. Can't tell from that angle. Also the dam looks but high but you really can't tell from those pictures.

Trouble rides a fast horse.....(Shrug)..... I ride a faster one.

The dam is just on uneven ground. You can see her rear feet are further up the hill behind her. Neither are good confo shots.

Breeding wise, I would go with the dun. She's got proven horse after proven horse.

The bay has a weaker dam side. I feel like the dams side of the pedigree is just as important as the sire, if not more. BUT again, that's just breeding wise. They are difficult pictures to get an idea of their build.

I didn't even look at the ped. Just the pictures. But to me it really doesn't matter. Only if you are going to try to go pro do you really need to look at the ped.

I feel like in young horses, all you have to go off of is their pedigree. They're going to change so much between now and 2 years from now that it's difficult to get a full understanding of their confo. (unless of course there is a severe fault)

Obviously the sire is a proven barrel horse. It comes down to the foal's lineage. How is the father built? How is the mother built? Do they compliment eachother?
Did the dam have a record? If not, did the dam's sire/dam have a record?

If the horse was a 2 year old-4 year old, I wouldnt be AS strict about pedigree...just because at that age you can really get to know a horse's abilities, conformation, and work ethic. As a yearling... they're just cute little fuzzy lawn ornaments. lol

Thanks for the reply!! You explained it perfectly.

Here are some pictures of the 2 girls this winter. The one of the red dun isn't the best angle but it was all she had.

They are both pretty young so you can't really tell who would be better. I say go for the better ped.
