    More Prospects...

    I still have my heart set on Zeus but my mother wants me to keep my eyes open for other horses in my area. I'm sure you understand, just in case it doesn't work out. (I want it to work out so badly though!)

    Anyway. No conformation pictures from this first horse but you can get a good idea of his movement. Let me know what you guys think.

    None really compare to Zeus but ack, I can't only have my heart set on him just in case.

    I actually really like the draft mare...incredibly flashy :) Zeus is definitely my favourite of them all, and then the painted mare...and then the bay gelding. I don't like that thoroughbred at all though. He looks a little bum-high, and has that you neck. You should go try the draft girl!

    The bay gelding seems to be a very lazy horse; he seems to always be falling on the forehand when being ridden. However he is a very nice built horse. He looks huge! ;)
    The paint looks very nice, a thick sort of dressage mount and looks like she has some scope over the jumping.
    As for the thoroughbred ; his neck is way out of proportion in his body. It seems to be too long or something. :)
    Anyway Out of those three horses I would choose the paint (as much as I dislike paints ;) lol)

    Hope That Helps!

    I like the second one, althoug her neck is a bit thick and maybe a bit short? What discipline are you interested in?

    I like the draft cross the best of of those ones too. I'd be looking to start jumping again and really want to take dressage lessons.

    Thanks you guys.
    :]

    I would say not to buy the third horse, because their neck looks out of proportion, like someone else already said, and he seems like he might be a bit downhill. I, like everyone else, would say that I like the draftx the best :)

    On the first one, being sold for back board just wondering if there is a lameness issue, they say she needs to take it down a notch. Nice horse but you could be inheriting a problem. I like the second one best, doesn't say how high the horse has been jumped, quite the looker. The last one seems the most experienced but def a few confirmation issues, but if it can do the job you are looking for does it really matter a lot? But by and far Zeus blows them all away.
