Horse confo. critiques

Could you critique these horses? They were possible buys and I was just wondering which one of these would have been the best conformation wise. Which is the best? Worst? Also critique my horse at the end. Thanks!

The first and second one are the best, IMO. I prefer the second one to the first one, however.

I can go into detail, if you'd like, but honestly, the ones other than the first two aren't even worth look at, IMHO.

As far as worst confo, it's a tie between the fourth and fifth ones.

I like the 2nd one best. His back might be a tad bit long but I'd really like to see better pictures of him. I can't even distinguish the front legs because of the lighting/his color.

I wouldn't give a 2nd look at the chestnut. His conformation is just...bad.

I'm going to guess your looking for an english prospect?

I was looking, I now have a horse, he's the last picture. These were prospects a few months ago, and I was just wondering which of them would have been the best.

Which chestnut? The first one? Why do you say his confo is bad? I'm curious because it seems like you're seeing something I'm not.

My opinions...
Amano is very nicely built, uphill, balanced, good muscle
Jackie is also very nicely built, best confo. Of them all, lean yet muscular
Maiden Dresser is okay, kinda thin
One Stripe is okay too, a little thin/lanky, looks more like a TB
Sketch doesn't look that great, bad feet/pastern angles, weak
Ace is pretty good, nicely muscled, could be a little thicker behind, good legs, pretty balanced

I'm on the fence whether that's a bay or a chestnut, to be honest. Most bays I've seen have had much more black than that on their legs. He almost looks like he could be a dun (which is possible, since he's an appendix).

If LaPorte is talking about that bright chestnut toward the bottom, yes, I agree. Run the other way from that one!
