I like the body of the first one better, but I like the front legs on the second a whole lot better. Those super short cannons and low set knees should make for some very flowy and flat pleasure movement.
It's always so hard for me to judge a pinto just from pictures because their markings can play such big tricks on your eyes LOL.
BUT, if the second was trimmed down to where she wasn't quite so fat, I think I'd like her more because she just seems to have more substance than the first...though she is a little more upright in her shoulder.
Second one hands down. She'll look lovely once she's in shape. The first one has scary-looking pasterns and angles on the lower leg. Look at the fronts in that first pic! Eek... I hope that's an illusion.
I say the first one. I prefer the way her wither runs long into her back, and I cannot see her eyes, but her expression makes me smile. Gem may toe out a bit in front, but her feet look a bit long, too. I prefer her longer pasterns.
It will be interesting to see them in person for sure, you can tell a whole lot from pics, but as we know those 2 pics can make a good horse look poor, or a poorer horse look good.
Of the two, just from those pics I like the first one best, but I freely admit that I am biased to some extent because I like her color better However, the second one being stockier may be a better fit, but she is obviously overweight in that pic, so that will be interesting to see. The pasterns are scary in the first pic, better in the second, but definitely and area for a closer look.
