I like Connor, he has a nice slope to his butt. Although, I think most of the horses on the website are bred mainly to be performance horses.

Kale looks quite big in the hindquarters and kinda awkward. I like conner and don't see many flaws. But one thing is his legs look wrong. His hooves are also too small. Dwen is pretty but personally I like Diana. Diana is petite and pretty.
For gelding, if you aren't planning on breeding just get gelding over with. Your horse will be more calm when gelded in his halter career. Some stallions will gladly stand next to horses of all gender but some stallions just have a fit. It will make it easier for both of you but if you plan on breeding of course you won't ;) LOL. Also, if your buying a halter horse just to do halter with I would look into breeding. Most people breed their halter horses not just compete :P

Actually no, I know many Halter Horses who aren't bred.

I personally like Kale's proportions the best, followed by Gwen.

I love Connor's personality description the best, but conformationally I don't like his butt/hip slope as well. And perhaps the biggest thing is he is very upright in the front pasterns. I know halter horses kind of go for that "look" but I worry about soundness issues with pasterns that are that straight. Kale's are a tad straight too, but I think overall he has the best proportions.

Gwen has the best pastern slope, but I don't think she's as proportioned as Kale. She might be the best "using" horse of the bunch though as I like pasterns that slope a little bit.

But hey, I'm not a halter judge, so what do I know! Also, I am guessing they will change a bit as they grow.

I personally like kale the best, Someone on here said he looks awkward, but he is going to be or should develop into a bigger horse than the others. He looks nice.

Gwen is gorgeos imo, something about her just draws the eye.

I agree with BreCrew, spellcheck is your friend.... and not even bothering to check over your spelling when trying to sell something, I don't care what it is, is just lazy.

I have to agree with NRHAreiner on this one...none of those colts appear to have 'top halter' potential. Would be perfect for lower level showing I suppose...guess it just depends where you want to go
