Well he's certainly got nice coloring. Pretty short backed and over at the knee but he looks solid. No face pics??

If he's going to be used for trick riding, one of the most important things for us to see is how he moves. Can you get a video of him trotting/cantering on the lunge?

I agree with equiniphile in that you should be sure of their movement also temperment is a big thing, id imagine with what you want him for. I like the look of the bay better & with more muscle he will be really nice, though definitely not as flashy as the Appy ;)

From the pictures you've provided, I like the bay better.

I like the APPY better. The bay has a lot of bone, but he looks heavy and ponderous. IF you are not heavy and don't need a big horse to carry you, then I prefer the Appy. He is a tiny bit camped under in the rear but that is not a bad thing for doing tight work with a lot of spinning , stops, turns etc. His back is short for an appy. he just looks agile and quick, while the bay looks heavy and sturdy.

The appy almost looks to have a bit of a wormy belly, though ofcourse he may just be un-fit. I personally perfer the bay, but then the photos are better.
