    I agree, judging by the way he is standing and the way his eyes are, he looks like he's thinking about doing something...

    What a blanket statement to make. And an incorrect one at that. You cannot pigeon hole a breed. It's the individual horse - not the breed as a whole. I have a 24 year old QH gelding that you cannot tire. He just simply has the personality and drive to GO. I had an Arab cross that was a sweet heart. She would go WHEN I asked.

    I also dislike those of statements that indicated a five year old horse cannot be a good horse due to it's age. ANY horse can blow up. Age, experience and breed doesn't matter.

    OP - it's your decision. You need to feel you can like and trust the horse.

    I'd have the second one... I think he's beautiful :) My horse has evil eyes but he's lovely so that's silly thing to say. I don't believe in eyes on a horse.
    Also, the 2nd photo of him is a weird angle which is why he looks weird :)

    Well, at least you'd know his intentions!

    My gray Arab gelding has such a sweet expression pretty much all the time, but he'll bite you if you let your attention wander. He'll bite you, not me. He knows better with me.

    Either way- get a vet check.

    I don't think the first horse looks underweight at alll

    I like him much better then the second horse as well... although I agree at 5 he is still a baby
