the more I look at the both of them the more I like the brown mare as well. She's actually one year older than the pinto mare but I don't think that makes a huge difference - they are QUITE young, 2 and 3 years old.

I still like the brown mare more, but that does give some insight why the pali looks so dinky. With her only being 2, having just been captured, and already having a foal at her size, her size has likely been stunted a bit and she would likely grow quite a bit both in height and all around size before she was through.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The brown, because the browns/reds/bays/whatever don't get adopted as much as the funner, louder colors do.....
Just sayin:P

sadly yes because you get a bunch of adopters who don't know much about horses and want "the pretty one". Oye... frustrating.

Ah. Those ages make sense... I take back what I said earlier about them not being the best candidates. If that brown is only 3, I think she's going to be a lovely horse...
May I ask why you're asking about these two?

I live down the road from the BLM facility here and I pass by every day. For some reason these two "called" to me, so to speak. The more time that passes the more I think and like the brown mare.

As far as what I would do with her - anything and everything I guess. I ride trails and dressage on my other horses and grew up riding the jumpers. I'm looking into doing some LD rides so any of those things, should she show an aptitude, would be fine and dandy with me. :)
