I kinda like Mare A because I love Palomino's and there's a chance the foal could be a Palomino, where as with B, it's Pretty much a guaranteed Sorrel...
Thats when you have to take into consideration would you rather have a sorrel foal with good conformation, or a colored foal with poor conformation... I don't necessarily like Mare A's confo that is why I picked mare B. I mean you have to take into consideration that these are brood mares so they may look a little rough sometimes lol. I would rethink your options if your really serious about this. Take your time and look through all your options thoroughly... when its all said and done conformation should be your first priority, because you are making a 30+ year commitment! Maybe start by narrowing it down to like 8 mares and go from there. If you put a little more time into researching each one individually you may find things that didnt stand out to you before! Ps. If it makes you feel any better about the color thing a Palomino is just a sorrel with a creme gene so you would only have a 50% chance of getting color anyway.
