It helps to know what you want it for. But just looking at them, I'd say my favorite is the last one and I really don't like number two.

Second to last one.

I am looking for a dressage hunter jumper eventing and crosscountry prospect if not already trained in some of them. Ihave a friends Tb and my mom is thinking about buying her but I want to look around first
I will try to get a pic of my friends TB and get it on here as soon as possible.

The first mare is in foal.. So, if you don't want a foal, I wouldn't get her.. especailly if you haven't had one before.
The second one looks very underweight to me... well, not nessecarily pony but just too thin.. he also has a bit of a swayback..
The third mare looks kind of ribby, but it's a bad pic so I can't see. Are TBs uaully built like this? (I'm not very familiar with them.. Our barn has only ever had two and one was only there for a month) She definitely looks under-muscled, too.. :\ Also, you've said you were using them for jumpers, eventing, XC.. it says she's a dressage horse, better on flat, so.. :\
I like the last one as you can continue to train her into whatever you like..

The third one gives most info and a video. I don't buy the reason why they are selling her. She is too small? Also even with lots of training $3,000 is too much. However she is cute and probably worth a look but I wouldn't pay more than maybe $1200. Without more info and videos I would say call owners, talk to them and when possible go look first hand.

Also a known horse may be better than a gamble on one you don't know.

I suspect there is more going on with the one that has the video than they are saying.
