I'm going to have to go with Chocolua, as they are emphasizing his get instead of just him. I'm not digging Sophistication Only.

I don't know much about western horses, but I like Iron Age. He looks more Hunter type then the others. The Only Escape as well.

I wish I could could put the only escape's head on iron ages body.
I'm definitely between those two as of right now though.
I really really like chocolua, however I plan on having another foal breed in 6 years to zips chocolate chip himself... that is if all goes well. Lol
