Option #2 has a nice shoulder. Not a fan of the long pasterns that appear to be upright.

KY? No, it's in Iowa.

I would avoid those pasterns on #2...they are almost vertical!

Not liking number 2, posty back legs and upright pasterns, I'd pass

In all honesty, I liked the first one better. I won't say to completely discount the parents appearance, but it is possible (albeit uncommon) for less than great parents to throw a good looking and capable foal.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Okay Option 3!

I'm on a horse search at this point but everything is 5+ hours away and I simply can't afford the gas to check every one out so I'm letting you guys help me go through some of these :)

A little in a different direction at this point...

2 year old purebred Arabian filly, chestnut with chrome! Registered with AHA, Preacher Man on top, Padron on bottom, pedigree can be seen at Moufadallah Arabian.
Some groundwork: leads, ties, lounges, had saddle on a few times, stood good for the farrier. Very very smart but typical arab attitude. Will make a superb show horse!!











My first thoughts:
She's level which is awesome. A 2 year old so I could do more groundwork this summer and start her next spring. I *love* arabs but just haven't found anything worthwhile in my price range. My only dislikes is she seems awfully thick for a filly? Maybe some muscle will tone her up a bit, remove some "baby fat", and give her a bit more feminine look?

I like her but I'm partial because I love arabs next to quarter horses imo they are the best they are such loyal and eager to please horses and darn right smart too.

I"m with you. I grew up on saddlebreds, arabs, and NSH's... can't beat the "flair" and personality. They're just fun ALL THE TIME! And they're so eye catching in the showring vs the low headed wp/hunters.
