    *Please note, I'm by no means a conformation expert. Elana's going to come up and prove me wrong on everything, just you wait. :P

    1 is not proportionate at all. Ewe-necked and a small head. Not a looker and has a HUGE barrel. IMO, really heavy on front. She looks pieced together from different horses.
    2 is the best one, Impo. She's proportional, well-muscled, beautiful head. However, she might be a tiny bit sickle hocked? Tiny bit downhill, also.
    3 is alright. Downhill, under-muscled neck, and there's something about her front legs I do not like.
    4 is a close second. Teeny bit downhill, she's got under-muscled hindquarters compared to number 1. Thin neck, small head.

    All horses are beautiful, but some are more beautiful than others.

    The first & last one would probably be my pics. Don't like others,mostly eliminated by their legs mind you alot of Judges seem to ignore that part of the halter horse.....

    For all the lovely turn out, I would not buy any of them. :(

    Buckskin is sickle hocked, tied at the knee, light boned and tiny feet with upright pasterns.

    Overo is straight thru the hocks and alarmingly so, upright pasterns, long back and steep croup.

    Chestnut roan is straight pasterns behind and alarmingly so, small round hocks, light boned, downhill build and back at the knee (almost looks like the horse is sore in front.. navicular?).

    Bay is tied at the knee, terrible small feet, light bone below the hock into the rear pastern, flat chested and a very weak jaw and muzzle.

    My oh my.. if this is what the halter Quarterhorse has come to (tho these do not have that diaper butt thing going on well, the bucksin has it some) it is a sad day indeed.

    See now, I told you guys so! I do agree, Elana. All of these halter horses are pretty bad, they wouldn't even place here.

    I love the second one.. and last one.

    I think the paint looks the best.

    Halter QH's worry me... I have to say that #2 looks best to me, looks slightly less pumpkin-supported-by-toothpicks.

    I do not like how none of them have proper hind pasterns...There are breeders out there who care to notice and breed horses fully proper.

    All of them are disgusting to me. Not one of them is a horse id like to have. Ever. Poor, poor, poor animals.
