I quite like the colt. He is lovely, beautiful neck set, nice movement, strong drive from behind and lovely hock action. He seems the dual-purpose type, could turn himself to dressage or jumping or do both. [edit; upon further reading he has both dressage AND jumping breeding which I really do like in a jumping horse as it can improve the trot and canter to have that dressage blood - and a good trot and canter is an important asset in a higher-level jumping horse; conversely jump is more inheritable than movement, and there are dressage folks who like some jumping breeding in their dressage horses because it adds more drive and power in the canter]
The filly OTOH has a slightly better shoulder, but doesn't look as good behind. Her hind pasterns scare me [way too upright] as do her very straight hocks.
Of the two, IMO the colt is better.
