I'm shocked that so many people like that chestnut. Yuck. He's put together very funky and is small. I hate his hindquarter and his hocks are pretty **** straight. His knees and front legs are a mess.
I love the bay gelding. He's very well put together, has a fantastic shoulder, nice short athletic back, fantastic engine in the back. He has a bit lighter bone through his legs, and I would definitely look at getting x-rays of everything with such a cheap price tag. At 10 he's getting up there in age, so what has he done?
The mare is nice, BUT I think the photographer did a fantastic job there. I doubt she would be as eye-catching in winter woollies with no baby oil or SLR lens on her. She's very thick and unrefined, and is quite long through the body. I don't like her neck at all. You cannot see her pasterns in the photo, either. She could be a tad over at the knee. If want up to date photos of her.
My choice would be the bay gelding, hands down. Bay mare next and skip the red gelding altogether. And I'm a sucker for a nice chestnut.
