Smile Two year old and her mom

Hey guys! My local animal shelter picked up these guys along with two others and I went to see them the other day. I REALLY like them. They are both mares, mother daughter, and the black one looks to me to be about two but I'm not sure, I couldn't get a look at her teeth or anything. I am trying to convince my dad to adopt them, the mare for my sisters and the filly for me, but I wanna know what yall think. I always like to get second opinions :). They are both pretty short, the mare around 15hh (not sure if that is really considered small but it is compared to my 17.1hh tb :P ) and the filly smaller than that but obviously not full grown yet. I am 5'7" and 120, am I too big? I would start her-I have never personally done it but have experience and knowledgeable horse people to help. I'm thinking wait until the beginning of next year to start the filly and if the mare hasn't been broke yet, then start her this fall. So what do yall think, good prospects? Does the mare look kind? She looks like a red dun to me, what about yall? She was really sweet and gentle when I saw her. What about the filly, any thoughts on age, confo, breed? Sorry this is so long, thanks to those who can help!

In my neck of the woods, that's not short. That's a pretty average sized horse. I'm 5'6" 200 lbs and consider a 15 hand, well built horse a good size for me. Heck, my Mustang doesn't even make 15 hands (but he's built like a tank). I think you will look great on them size-wise.

It's hard to evaluate anything based on those pictures other than that they look pretty, health and at a good weight.

Cant say anything about the mare from that photo other than she just looks like a chestnut with a moderately flaxen mane... Pretty head, though.
The filly looks ok. Again, not the best photo. More pictures would be better to really determine conformation.

My arab/appy is 15hh but I guess they just seem short compared to my gelding :P Do you think I will weigh too much to start her under saddle? Since she will grow I think I will be fine when she is an adult but I wasn't sure about now I figure she will be atleast 2.5 then assuming she is 2 now. I will check out her teeth if my dad says yes. I just don't want to hurt her back The other mare that they got was super thin but she is nursing, these guys seemed pretty good weight.

Her mane confuses me is is so many colors lol! Sorry about the pictures, they are the only ones they had on the website and I didn't take my camera when I went to see them :/
