Weanling or Yearling

I had posted this yearling before, I got some more pics of him. Keep in mind he is pasture kept, not being fed grain.

Also saw this girl though from the same farm, a weanling.

He/she would be used as a trail horse.

The yearling looks like he needs to be wormed OR he is getting poor quality feed and is filling up on it but not getting much out of it. Looks a pretty nice yearling otherwise from what can be seen.

The weanling looks good now.. but I can't guess to how this horse will look as an adult. A little back at the knee here.

Thanks elana. The palomino is just on pasture so I am sure would fill out with some grain added. I really like the roans color but shes so young. I do like her dam a lot.

I like the roan a lot more. iI don't like much about the palomino. Steep shoulder, long bac, under-muscled for his age. I don't even this his face is pretty.

The roan is overall a better prospect at this point in time.

iI had the resources though, I'd take both to get them out of their situation. Package deal.

I see nothing about either of them that would prevent them from being a very nice trail horse. Just based from the pictures, I like the hind end on the filly a lot more, but the colt is going through a serious case of the fuglies right now and the fact that he's thin doesn't help.

I think I'd go see both of them and look them over closely. See if one or the other had a temperament that I liked more and see if one of them had a wonky conformation thing that doesn't show up in the pictures.

The filly is not even two months old. These were the previous photos of the palomino.

I like the palomino. He's gawky and awkward right now but yes cute. I second the package deal. :)

It's true the palomino is in rough baby shape, but I like him far better than the second one you posted about. I do like the shoulder on the weanling better, tho the palomino's shoulder looks fine as it is, especially if trails is what you have in mind. He is well balanced and I can see him looking quite nice once he fills in. The filly is more compact, but thats the only good thing about her. She looks like she is build downhill, has no neck at all and tho more muscular, it won't help her any if she isn't balanced with poor conformation. I would for sure be looking at the palomino.
