I don't like first 3, I think the last mare is gorgeous, but am not a confo expert. The first 3 just look strange to me

Have them geld him before you take him....even if you pay for it.

He is a nice yearling.

I like the appy best. Legs on several of the paints look very fine boned with long pasterns (especially the first one!). Can't tell a lot from #3 photos about conformation.

I have to say, I am no expert, but the first colt looks like he has very long pasterns. I'd rather not judge the bay tobiano filly by those pictures, so I can't really pick between her and the appy filly... Like I said, I'm no expert, but I THINK I would go with the appy, although I'm interested in hearing more on a comparison by someone who works with reiners.

Pass on the first right away. He's extremely sickle-hocked in every photo. Has a very upright shoudler and his neck is set high.

I love the markings on the 2nd but he has faults as well. Steep shoulder, very posty front legs and I cannot say much about his backs.

No decent confo pics of the filly but she is certainly a flashy one. Appears to have a good shoulder and I like her front legs. Hard to tell, but judging from the first and last photos, she looks a tiny bit sickle-hocked but not too terrible.

The last one is my favorite, before the filly. He's long in the back and has a sharp slope to his croup, but apart from that a rather nice-looking horse. Good shoulder & neck set, nice legs and a good, deep girth. Pretty head as well.

The last one of the "palomino" doesn't really look like a pally to me. I'm no genetics expert, but judging by all the pink around her eyes and muzzle, she may be some sort of champagne...
As for confo, she's got a nice shoulder, front legs look like they would be ok and she should have a nice short back when she's done growing.
Sharp slope to her croup but again, her hindquarters give the impression of being big and chunky when she's developed ;)
Back legs could be a tad straighter and look slightly cow-hocked.

I like the 'palomino' that you posted best of all. I also agree that she appears to be a champagne rather than a palomino.
