What do you think of these two Appy Sport horse fillies?

Would love to hear some opinions, but I know none of these pictures are ideal to critique, sorry... Perhaps just a few opinions on what your general feelings about them from these pictures.

I really liked this filly since I saw her as a weanling, and she's coming on two years old now, and on the market. She's AppaloosaxHanoverian.

Perhaps her hind legs are a bit posty? There is something I don't like about them.

And this one is a year younger... but I may like her even better methinks.
Also AppxHanoverian. She's supposed to mature TALL!

What do you think?

I think of the two the younger is the nicer. Lovely shoulder, lovely hind, nicely balanced. Baby considered, she should grow out of the few faults I can see. I like her A LOT.

The older, you're right there is something about that hind end that I just don't like. Such a shame because otherwise she seems like a really lovely horse.

Are these two full siblings? They look very similar. The younger is, like I said, a lot nicer, but they do look a lot alike.

As I understand it, they have the same Hanoverian sire, but out of different Appaloosa mares.

This is probably my ultimate favourite colour though... classic bay with just a little bit of the appaloosa flair... I'm in love. Ha!

I thought they would be related.

And yes, me too! I dream of a bay or black Hano cross with a lovely subtle blanket. And no varnish or skin mottling. I like spots. Orr, splash or frame overo would be nice too... lol even though I know frame is a bad thing. But I don't want loud. If I got splash, I'd want a bald face, stockings and a belly splash at most.

The hind end of the older one is quite straight ...not a lot of hock angle.

As a sporthorse, I prefer the first filly. From what I can see of the second one's dam, she is not the type of Appy I would normally recommend as a cross with a Hanoverian for a sporthorse, and the filly displays the same slow twitch fiber muscle composition as the dam, so I would expect her to be more endurance oriented. You never know, though...

The older one at top of page has weak, very upright stifles so I would definately say the younger filly. I think she also has a somewhat upright shoulder, large head and a somewhat shallow looking mouth although it is hard to be sure when looking at a picture. She does have a lovely coat and a pencil thin neck.
I also think the mottled skin around the eyes and nose create and illusion that make both seem small and beadie in some pics but that is just my opinion and has nothing to do with confo :)
