The chestnut does not have good confo, but I watched a video of him and he moved very well.

#1 would have been my first choice. Second choice would be a tie between the 2nd and last horses. It would have depended on their personalities almost as much as their conformation

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

Doesn't matter how well he moved...those legs couldn't stand up to much before breaking down completely. His legs are scary, to be honest.

The first horse was so sweet, I never met the 2nd, 3rd, or 5th, the 4th was okay, pretty spirited.

Yes, I do have to agree with that.

His feet and legs are bad. He looks weak over his loin area. His neck looks a bit thin.

He's tied in behind the knee, which means the strength of his flexor tendons is greatly diminished and making him prone to tendon injuries. He's also cut out under the hock, which will make him more prone to arthritis and hock injury later on. I just don't like his whole hind end, in general. He looks like he has a fairly flat hip, which would make it hard for him to engage his hind end. He's very straight through the stifle and appears cat-hammed, which results in insufficient power.
