Quarter horse yearlings, opinion

What do you all think of one of these quarter horse yearlings for a project "horse"?

Which one do you think might resell the best?

Layer

We've (Mom & I) been musing on one of these yearlings for a project horse (think in terms of 4 h project, although I would be doing this for the experience...And am NOT in 4 h). One I could buy,train, sell again...

Although I may not buy one of these particular yearlings I want your opinion on how you like the stallions that they breed to, and the foals in general that they "produce"...

I personally like them, but what do I know?

Mostly what I want to know is, whether or not I get one, how well do you like them..

I just quickly browsed through, but I'd jump at this little girl:

She looks conformationally correct, and she's cute to boot.

That's actually the one I favored!
I'm not sure what will happen... The idea is still pending...And it may "pend" on for a while...

But it doesn't hurt to look right? And buying one of these would be better then going through the hassle of breeding a horse and waiting for the foal to hopefully end up correct!

I also think this one is too cute!https://plus.google.com/photos/10706...433?banner=pwa

Thanks for your opinion! I thought she looked nice too! Maybe that's why she's listed for 500 instead of 300...hmm

What do you think of their stallions?

They have some nice names in there. Lots of Poco, Lena, and Bar horses which means lots of cowy and lots of running lines....

The Peppy san Fawn filly was also the only one that caught my eye. Pedigree wise any notables are a ways back in pedigree,as noted with all of those foals that I checked pedigrees
