I honestly like the bay better. She seems to have a shorter back, which I like. But like the other posters have said, they're both pretty young. Bloodlines don't really matter to me but her bloodlines seemed pretty good. Her granddam's side might not be the best but her grandsire's was pretty loaded, in my opinion.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

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.
That's my same thoughts.

If I had to pick, I'd go for the red dun.

I would have to go with the dun too..I do like my horses to have nice bloodlines though so it puts the dun ahead of the bay..

I like the dun, I like her bloodlines more. And she's built pretty good too. Honestly their both bred very well, and have good builds for a yearling. Either of those mares will have a pedigree to brag about, so I vote go see them, watch them move / run around look to see which one uses its hind end, is more athletic naturally. Also judge their persoanlitys, which one is more willing, more interested in you. And being rowdy doesn't always equal bad either. Just see which one you click with..... opinion of bloodlines are biased too lol

I actually went and ended up getting the red dun's full sister who is 2 this year. I realized I would rather have a 2 year old at this point then a yearling which I would have to wait that much longer to train. I am really really enjoying working with the 2 yr old as she is very willing to learn. She came with only know how to follow you around and it has been fun teaching her how to lead properly as well as other things.

Well thats good! Any pics?
What do you plan on doing with her? Just barrels?

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