To be honest..judge them the same as you would a paint. They have the different types just like QHs without the white.
Look at them the same as you would any horse, actually. Hooves, any health issue type things, vices, groundwork, PPE, personality, etc.

Not true.....maybe if they were halter bred, ect. We have always owned, bred, raised Performance (Barrels,roping, ect) QHs and their feet follow their build. If you have a horse bred with big build and small feet that is what your going to get. If you have breeding that is bigger horses with bigger feet that is what your going to get.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I have a quarter horse and she is seriously my best friend. I love quarter horses so much! They are very versatile. You can do English and Western. They're strong, they are brave, really great all-around horses.

I was actually doing dressage with mine earlier this year. I'm still a beginning dressage rider, but my mare is out of work right now.

I think when looking at them, like said above, just check for all things you would on any other horse! QH is large breed, there can be many different variations of them, but I've owned and worked with many and they are a wonderful breed to work with. Very intelligent, and versatille (sp?) horses. They can do anything you ask of them. I have reiner and cattle horse, and at the age of 26 I trained him to jump and he loves it. We competed a few years in it as well. They're awesome horses!

Yes, this is very true.

I love Quarters (as you can see by my username) They're all I've ever owned and most are good 'all-arounders.'

I love QH and they are the only type of horse I will buy, but I barrel race and they are just perfect for arena events. All my horses are QH or QH mix except one and She is a registered TWH but she is gaited and I don't exactly love gaited horses.

Not to be rude, but before you bought the other two horses you should have fixed up the one you had.
