Honestly I don't see money winning halter or WP horse in either of theses prospects. The two disciplines require entirely different builds and style, but these foals are rather generic in build. The colt is very straight and will likely be a rough ride. If you just want a horse for a fun companion go for it, but if you want to show I would look for something bred for that discipline.

Personally not a fan of the colt.... is a yearling but they have no up to date pics,those would give you much better idea of how he is maturing from the chubby foal pics. Incidently the colts sire is now a gelding....
The colts father isn't a gelding.. He`s a big black tobiano stud who's breeding again this year.

For ranch work, I'd go with the filly. I like her shoulder and rump a lot, overall as a working horse she's just built better for it and I like her bloodlines pretty well. The colt is flashy, but he is just not built as well for ranch work. Just my two cents.

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

Thank you all! I'm not too set on either of them, I'm going to do more searching, I may look in the Ontario Areas, because New Brunswick doesn't have much to look at.

The filly is tied in at the knee and is starting to show a sickle hock. The paint is a little better. No idea how the baody and the rest will come.. at this age the only thing you can judge really are the legs.

"Tops may come but bottoms never" means the legs are all that you have and that is what you will have. The rest will change. A lot. I do not like the filly's blood lines. That Dandy Seeker line.. uh uh. Osteochondrosis/epiphysitis issues.... through that sire.
