Possible buy choices?

I am looking at possibly getting one of these horses and would like opinions.

Nice little Bay Overo. Will be a good size for sale in Polk, Wisconsin :: HorseClicks

I would be doing team penning/sorting most likely in the future

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

I like the first one.

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.

I like the 2nd and the 4th one

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

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.
