which mare would you pick & why?

If you had to pick one of the following two mares, not knowing anything other than what you see here, which one would you pick and why?

The two mares in question are the palomino pinto and the large brown. I look forward to everyone's thoughts!

(i will attempt to get more pictures of the brown mare later this afternoon; I know there are more pictures of the pinto here than the brown unfortunately)

I probably wouldn't pick one without having the opportunity to see better pictures or knowing more about them.

But I shall play along anyway! I would pick the brown mare because in the last picture, she appears taller.

I will play too! I everything about the paint tells me oh I love the look of her but I was concerned with height, so that would be an issue for me.

Concerned with height as in... ? Is she pony sized or horse sized? Assume she is 15hh.

Well...for me, I wouldn't look at anything other than 16hh or up. I'm 6' with super long legs so she'd have to be really stout for me to feel comfortable. And not knowing the height from the picture...well...that was my pick. :)

Very tough choice choosing sporadically, as I see both relaxed, no pinned ears, etc. So, I would say the brown for height and the pinto for color - sorry! Not much help there haha :)

I'd be hard pressed not to take the pinto home!! Wow, she is gorgeous! I just like tall horses.......... mine is 16.3+ so that would be a bit of a factor but I really am thinking the pinto.

ADD: I just noticed your in NV. Are you saying this horse maybe could come to live in Oregon??? HUM??? LOL!

Pally mare, simply because her confo looks better. The brown one is definitely cowhocked and there is something funky about her front right leg. I'm also not a fan of her face.
The pally has overall decent conformation. Shoulder angle is a bit steep, but her back is a nice length, her hindquarters (though lacking in muscle) are pretty and her legs look not too bad. She also appears to have nice big feet for her size and her foals looks good as well. I also love her color and markings!
