All look like nice horses potential, presuming they are sound.

The second broodmare has a fairly significant limp when she's walking (will be sedated tomorrow to take a good look at it. She won't co-operate with us), but the rest appear to be sound so far. Ofcourse, I've only seen any of them at a walk and trot, so I can't be certain.

I have to say, I really like the colt. Unfortunately I doubt the BO would agree to take him on since, it would be years before we could use him, and what with Sour, Noah, and Clyd- I just can't commit completely to another animal. He's quite eye-catching though, I have to say. Beautiful movement, a keen eye, and loads of personality. I sure hope we can find him a good home.

Yes, the filly is just darling. I really hope that she'll allow us to befriend her soon, as well as her mother.

So now we need names. Anyone have suggestions? I kind of like the idea of 'Spiffin' for the colt, but I'm open to ideas!

I wish I were in the market for a horse. I love that first mare. Huge feet, curious personality, pretty girl. It's really sad to see TBs in that condition. Hopefully all of their lives will improve from here.

MyBoyPuck- she's definitely not your average TB! I'm really leaning towards picking her, but it's really just going to depend on how forgiving of a rider she is (vital for a lesson/local show horse, ofcourse) and how spooky she is.

I believe we're going to give each of them a month here, then re-evaluate them by tacking the two OTTBs up (given that they're still sound and in good health) and working with them for a few weeks. Broodmares will be evaluated as well. We don't really know if they've ever been saddled at all, much less raced. I'm fairly sure that the second broodmare raced at some point though.

Clementine- haha, if only I could get thme up there to you- you'd have two new horses!

SorrelHorse- thanks so much for the ideas! Jethro is super cute. Might just have to mention that one to the BO ;) I like Seneca, Dee, and Holiday too.
