Sampson is just beautiful. I would completely overlook Doc, he stands way under himself all around so that makes me wonder about his soundness. Everything about him is short; short back, short neck, short legs, short croup, etc. And at 13.2hh, he nearly qualifies as being a pony. Lots of people like short horses but I prefer something over 15hh. Gunner has a very long croup and a wierd tail set and if he has been trained on barrels, I would not trust him to be calm. Calm barrel horses do happen but are few and far between. Plus, those scars on his nose from a tiedown really don't do much for his appearance or what I imagine his personality is. I agree with the previous 2 posters, my favorite is still Jimmy with Sampson taking a close second. The only problem with him is that you would have to get all new tack that would fit him, where what you have already would likely fit a QH.
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/
