eeesh, I wouldn't look twice and that second one. The only thing going for her is her coloring...

I'm in agreement with everyone else, I'd pick the roan over the pinto. I don't know about your area but around here you can pick up nice registered yearlings for 500 bucks or less so I think they're both over priced.

Thanks everyone for the help!!! I really appreciate it!!
I just don't really know what to look for when it comes to different horses and the body bulit. Yeah the bad thing that stinks around here in Wisconsin is that horses are really not that cheap and usually here it was you get what you pay for. :( Bummer I know

the roan for sure, the sire is a Driftwood horse, Sheri Cervi's barrell horses are driftwood horses -- he was a great roping and barrel horse and sire of them as well

Yep, the roan. The filly might make a decent riding horse and she's that "so ugly you can't help but love her" kind of way (I have one or two of those types myself LOL).

However, her upright shoulder would greatly limit her reach with her front end, which will cost her speed. AND, her croup is really steep and short, which will limit her ability to really get under herself and use her hind end, limiting her power. Without speed and without power, you haven't got a barrel horse. Not only that, but her legs are weak; very light in bone, long cannons, pretty badly tied in, and wonky looking hocks.

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:
