The second one is cuter than ****! The first one just looks...IDK, kind of listless. It's probably just me but the second one looks much happier.

Good choice. The older horse is a bit conformationally challenged. The little colt is much more promising, and is certainly far better bred...

Unless one is looking for a ranch horse, my preference is for the first because of his neck. I think his confo would make him a good all around horse whether it's english or western or both.

No opinions on the second foal.. too young to say what he will look like. if the leopard app behind him is his Mom, she is butt high and he probably will be as well when he is mature.

The first horse is butt high as well. Look at the parents and see if they are butt high as adults. If not, he MAY level out. His back is a bit long and he has a weakish coupling. Other than that he looks good. Good bone.

The second one is young but bone structure is bone structure. I see a nicely put together foal but I am no expert in anything other than what I like.

I like his shoulder angle, the way his neck ties in (though it looks high in one pic and nice in another - and I like his butt ;o).. He doesn't look butt high in the side view (though most foals do have a butt high stage) I can't tell if his dam is butt high for sure due to the uneven ground she is standing on (and these pics are far from ideal for conformational critiques) however she does look slightly sickle hocked. In one pic he looks slightly over at the knee but not in the other pics. In either case it is only slight and likely will correct within a very short time of growing. I don't see anything major at all that would be a deal breaker for me at least. I think he has a nice head too and the color is a bonus.

I like the first colt too but he isn't as flashy and I'd like to see better pictures of his neck. It is possible the second colt will roan too. Time will tell.

I still think you made a good choice
