Looking to buy a weanling! Please critique possible buys!

I am looking for a weanling with good bloodlines to show halter with. I'm not the best at conformation, so any opinions would be great! =]

Based on pedigree, Ima Cool Rookie and Lilly have the best halter breeding (or at least they have halter names that I recognize lol). But based on looks I think I like the 2009 APHA Chestnut SPB Filly. On color definantly the grulla colt, I really like him, lots of foundtaion. But I don't know about halter hmmmm. Well that's my opinions lol. Out of the two halter bred ones I like lilly the best... I think lol.

I don't know much about conformation or halter but I like Lilly best :)
Then I think I'd pick Jackie O after her.
Hope I helped a little.. lol

Ima Cool Rookie seems a tad ill-proportioned to me.
Lilly has nice, straight legs, and a great pedigree.
Jackie O has nice legs, well proportioned.
Count The Loot has nice legs, but has a pencil neck, which I personally dislike.
AMD Steel James is flashy, and looks like he has a great build for gaming, unfortunately the pictures they have of him make it hard to know what his leg conformation is like..
All in all, Lilly seems like the betst choice out of them for halter conformation wise, but AMD Steel James will catch the judges attention, and in a crowded class with 15 other horses that can be a really good thing. It also depends on whether you would show them halter and sell, or keep the horse afterwards.

Shame you are across the country - I have my 7 month old IF AQHA weanling up for sale.
He is by "The Two Timing Kid" out of a granddaughter of both "Zippo Pat Bars" (top) AND "Blondies Dude" (bottom).

I am asking $6000 OBO for him.
His breeding fee was $1000.



I have a thread going on him in breeding if anyone would like to help name him

Of the ones you listed, I like the grulla the best.

I liked Junes Shinin Sundown and Grulla the most... I guess I'm weird.... Lol!

I like the last three babies with attached links (not the very last one, but the filly, the grullo and the painted filly)

I like this rounds on me, but I would still like to see more pictures of him. He is tall, handsome, gots some chorme, a decent pedigree, I think he would make an excellent horse.
