What do you want to do with the horse? Are you working with a trainer? What is your experience level? Do you want a project horse or something that is 'made'. You sort of have all types here, so it is not quite clear.

Personally, looking at the horses conformation wise, the grey 'Thunder' seems to have the nicest build. And also, the first horse, i don't know if it's just me, but he seems to look a little stiff and short strided in the hind end

I'm looking for a horse I could -potentially- do low-level eventing with, but that is not a major need for me. I am just looking for a solid horse to play with, maybe go to some "fun" shows and trail ride with.

I'm not sure yet whether I want a project or "made" horse. The guy I'm currently leasing (who I'm trying to buy) is a project, and I've had a lot of fun with him. I have a trainer and the ability/experience to work with a "problem child", so to speak. But at the same time I'm interested in having something "made" that I can just improve with.

I don't think that was a very straight answer, but oh well. By the way, the ones I'm most interested in are the Appy, gray, and the 10 year old WB . . . Leaning highly on the WB.

I like the Warmblood gelding too. He's my top pick. I like the price for him. I personally dont care for the young OTTB. I like the bigness of the 8 yr old TB but Im into stocky looking horses. But the Warmblood gelding is my fav. Good luck in your search!!

My top pick is the last horse.. the TB Mare. How old is she? After that the App is a made horse.. she IS 16 so has probably a limited future.. but she is very scopey over fences and looks to have heart. The last would be the warmblood. Too little training for 10 years old IMO.
