I prefer the Hanoverian mare quite a bit over the two Baroque mares, who are both heavier through the forehand with necks that have poor muscling (bottom muscle stronger than top).
The palomino (or is she going gray?) appears fairly straight on both ends (shoulder and hind leg). I do like her bone and she has a nice short back. Steep croup. Appears from muscle development that she likes to be heavy on the forehand.
The 4 year old mare has a bit of a ewe neck, which also appears short in proportion to her body. Her pasterns also look a bit on the longer and weaker side. Would like to see quite a bit more substance to her bone, as once she finishes filling out she will likely be quite a substantial horse and those legs are quite light. To me she looks much younger than four in this photo (more like a two year old).
