    I couldn't get the video to play smoothly for me (it was more like a set of still photos run together), but I still like the paint more. She's got her faults and, like Drafty said, she may have a bouncy trot due to her being upright through the shoulder and croup, but I don't see any reason why she wouldn't make a decent prospect.

    What's much more important than any minor conformational faults is her mind and temperament.

    In the video, the paint is quite adorable... :) Flagging her tail and trouncing around like that... I wonder if her trot under saddle (and with more muscling, training, control) would be so bouncy. My arab does that bouncy little flagged trot in the round pen when he's in a mood/forgetting that he is gelded, when under saddle he is quite comfortable. I don't know much about movement, though.

    This is an excellent point. You can't really get a true sense of a horse's gait when they've got their head and tail in the air and are prancing around all full of vinegar. Lots of things about a horse can change between moving at liberty and moving under saddle. I started a filly several years ago that would always have her head up like a giraffe whenever she was loose, but under saddle, from the start, she had a nice, level headset.

    The bay looks pretty good, but her front legs are pretty sloped backwards.
