Critique Potential Horse

Ok, this stud happens to have a few yearlings and 2yo's within my price range. However, I am still wondering why horses that are registered, and look OK (I'm not an expert) are so cheap?
Ok, well can you please take a look at...
--Tuthaside China Doll
My personal opinion on her is that she is just too stocky for my liking, and I wanna show my horse in Western Pleasure and Halter and I don't think she's a good looker for that.
--Tuthaside Under The Radar
I like him. He is my personal favourite so far. His face is so perfect and his marking is a perfect shape. He seems nice and tall, got good legs on him. My only concern is do you think he would make a good Western/Hunter Under Saddle/Pony Club horse?
--Tuthaside He's an Illusion
He's seems kinda timid in the pictures, a shy kinda boy. Also, in his foal page, his hindquarters look kinda higher than his withers. IDK, might just be the camera angle or my crazy opinion.
--Tuthaside Stealth Bomber
From that one photo, (& his foal photos on the foal page), he looks OK. Doesn't really have any sparkle to him.
--Tuthaside Richochet
I guess he looks alright. Cause he's a 2yo, he'd start training to be broken in right away. BUT the only problem with the 2yo's is that I really wanted a yearling to take in lungeline and led trail. Also is it just me or does he look a little bony?
--Tuthaside Crash N Burn
He's pretty. I guess he has a little bit of potential for the show-ring in my area.

Ok well congrats if you read all of that.. I really would appreciate any opinions. They can be harsh, nice whatever as long as its honest. If you need to see more pictures of them, just click on the 2008 or 2007 foal pages.
Please take into consideration, these horses will be used in
-Western Pleasure
-Trail classes
-Hunter Under Saddle
-Pony Club

Thank you so much.

I have nooooo experience in choosing yearlings/2yos, so my opinion really doesnt say anything, but I think He's an Illusion is just adorable :) I love his face.. it just looks so much sweeter than the others I know thats not saying much, just my un educated 2 bobs worth! haha

Under The Radar seems to be my favourite. He has an amazing face. He's An Illusion; I don't know. He looks outta place in the photos. Like the shy horse, that the other colts didn't like.
That page has more photos of them.

Well I have 2 more horses to add to the potential list.
1st one is Minty.
--4yo mare.
--White Overo Paint
--Does Western Pleasure
--Western Riding
--Hunter in Hand
--Hunter under Saddle
The other horse is a 22yo buckskin gelding.
--Does Western Pleasure
--Western Riding
--Trail comps
--Hunter in Hand
--Hunter under Saddle
--Pony club
--And is fine around cattle and working them.
He is a really calm gentle boy, but is he too old? I know the lady who owns him takes excellent care of him, and he seems to be in good condition. However, I'm gonna get my instructor to inspect him and try him out.
I'll take some pictures of them next time I'm at the stables.
Opinions guys?
