Which WP prospect?

I have a few pictures and descriptions of several yearlings I would like to train for WP. Based on their conformation, which do you think would be best suited for WP and which has the typical 'show' look. ( I have shown WP a lot before but don't know much about looking for prospects!) I realize that it is difficult to judge how a young horse will turn out. I owuld be planning on showing in APHA and possibly AQUA ( with some of the double registered ones) and using the yearling asa 4H project. Also please judge which looks like it has the conformation required for naturally slow gaits and low headset. These are the only pictures I could find. Thanks for the help! Please list horses in order of suitability. Thanks so much guys!!

I like number 5

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

The Alotta Charisma is a hunter bred horse, but the Charisma's have excellent temperaments and trainability (I have one!) But they may not be your best WP choice, but a great all-around horse you could point in any direction. I would need better photos of this one to decide. (the one provided you can't tell anything)

The rest are okay. You would want to consider an APHA/AQHA horse because they are significantly more marketable and worth more. Especially if it is an RR APHA. I would be partial to the second colt. His bloodlines go to Impulsions and Invester which are very good pleasure lines, even if they are a bit back there.

In my personal opinions, Zippo bred horses are hit or miss on their personalities. The majority of Zippo horses I know can be very sketchy.

I'm guessing you are looking exclusively at Reisinger babies?

I would pick the Lotza Good Looks one. Charisma x Sonny lines are great all-around horses with great personalities. Then I would choose the In the Fast Lane. IMHO has the best marketability and great lines. Good luck!

This is where Baby Huey came from, he's out of Flirtin With A Win, Handeland Pleasure Horses were who I bought him from. He's double registered.

I like all of them, and imagine you will do well with any of them but the last one, and 1, 6 and 7 are all eye catchers.

Scroll down to Wins First Edition and you will see "Baby Huey". http://www.webwranglerdesign.com/Han...salehorses.php

They are in IA too, not far from other barn.

Horses make me a better person.

Well, heck, I think I'd have to take them all cause I'd never be able to decide. #5's markings really catches my eye, just because they're so unusual, but I don't like his muscling as well as some of the others. Overall I think I like #7 the best because she has that old time bulldog look to her and looks like she'd be a good using horse. That's my personal preference though and not the look I see in WP horses these days.

I like #3. Probably because I like the look or Thoroughbreds or racing lines (not saying that is his breeding.. just his look).

Of course, I might see him in person and not like. Or I might not like this horse as an adult. But.. right now I like that one a lot. Seems put together.
