Well, if it doesn't matter, just close your eyes and pick one.

Or just pick the cheapest and pray for the best, it all comes out the same in the end.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

So I had some extra time and went through your picks, this is my 2 cents...
1sr the ad is gone
2nd Arab over priced for flipping
3rd palomino, although a pretty colour which helps resale, she hasn't had anything done with her and is too much money so you won't make much back
4th over priced for flipping
5th to young, and not registered so hard to resell
6th nice mare well bred, good age, but too much money for a resell horse.
7th probably the best bet, but doesn't say if he is registered, and says he's 13.5??

I have flipped a few horses in the past couple years and to make any money on them you need to be able to get something decent for under $1000,
That's my opinion take it or leave it

Well then pick up some low-sellers at an auction sale. People ask for more than the horse is worth on the internet. At lease toy can pick something up for cheap (or what its worth) at an auction.

Your best bet in my opinion would be to go to auctions or even shelters. Many great horses end up in these places! If you live in Alberta(I think that's what you said?) I know their are a lot of auctions around their. Why not get a good prospect, train it, make some money on it, and even possibly save it from a kill buyer? Just my opinion! I would love to have the capabilities to buy all those slaughter bound horses and flip them to resell! I see a lot of great horses with a lot of potential go for cheap through auctions. Just no one has the time to bring out their potential!

I screen buyers so they don't end up in a home that's a flip, so maybe going to an auction instead of privately would be a better bet.
