The first horse is a bay. The 5th horse is the one I'm talking about. The really BRIGHT chestnut. "Sketch"

I suppose I'll let it slide...

I'll take the One Stripe horse. I like the dainty quality and the naturally lower headset.

I'm happy you've found a horse. But I have to ask...I noticed you live in Hazel? I go to MSU and I can NEVER find horses like this. What site do you use/what state do you search?!

Well, these weren't really too close to around here. I bought my horse in Murfreesboro; one was in Clarksville, another in Ohio, Memphis, middle Illinois...I used a lot of different sites but I liked Equine.com and Dream Horse the best. I was really looking for one within about 200 miles, but sometimes I would have to search farther to find something! Ace I never actually found on a website, but by word of mouth from another girl who I talked to about a horse who knew the people who had Ace. But it was very hard to find good horses; of the hundreds I found only a couple were close enough to go look at.

#2 and #6 would have been my picks. Both are really well balanced and have the nicest hind/front ends.
#4 is lovely but holy smokes look at those hind legs!
#5 are comes in fourth, he's pretty long and thin and missing some bone.
#1 is probably better lookin than that shot, he looks like he's standing on a slope and I can't judge him from that shot.
#3 comes in last, he's kind of a mess.

Fun!

Edit, took a closer look at the chestnut and thought different.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

lol the first horse is a Bay, its called a Wild bay which restricts the black even further down the leg. i REALLY like the first bay the best. and then the 2nd. the last horse isnt all the bad in my opinion either.

Unfortunately, One Stripe's hind legs are so incredibly posty that s/he'd have a hard time in just about any discipline. That horse will be more prone to bog and bone spavin. Also, it will have a difficult time using its lower back, thereby reducing the power and swing of the leg. This is another one of those conformational faults that leads the horse to breaking down much more easily than a horse with more correct conformation.
