I like first babies' legs better than second... especially the front legs.

I like the first foal, I agree with alexischristina. :)

Thanks for your opinions... The first one is the one I am buying. I liked his dam a lot more than his half-siblings as well, which was my first attraction to him. But I just wanted to make sure what I am seeing is fairly sensible.

Anything glaringly awful stand out about him? I know its suuuper hard to tell anything at all for sure.

I also like first one better, I like his legs and shoulder, and his back looks a little bit shorter. Make sure you update us with pics, I love to watch the babies grow!

I like the second... not sure why. The other foal has very straight legs and camps himself out which may just be a foal thing but the other looks more solid.

But again I don't really know what I'm looking at. I'm new at this whole confo thing.

With just the pictures provided, I couldn't venture a guess because you don't have a clear, even view of the whole foal in any of them.

Only thing I really noticed is that it appears both of them have umbilical hernias that may or may not need surgery to fix.
Kayty and GotaDunQH like this.

It's where there is an opening (it can vary in size) in the lining of the membrane that keeps their intestines all contained. It's not an uncommon thing and some foals do grow out of them with no human involvement at all. My youngest colt, Taz, had one that I had surgically corrected when I had him gelded. It's not a big deal at all, but something to consider that you may have to fix at a later point.

You see the little things that look like bulges just in front of their sheath? That's the hernia.

Here is a more severe one, just to show you where to look.
