    Question Need Help Choosing

    I have been looking at 2 different fillies and can't choose between them. Which one is the better choice? I would only be using on trails and local fairs whenever she is old enough. Here are the pics...

    I like the first one more but the pictures of the second aren't that good for looking at conformation.

    Based on the pictures, I would probably choose the red roan. Of course, I do not know their temperaments, pedigree (which doesn't really matter if you're riding trails) and its a bit difficult to judge their confirmation from these photos.

    The bay filly looks a little downhill with a straighter shoulder, perhaps a slightly roached back, but this could be the angle that the picture was taken at (and she's grazing). Her hind pasterns look a little weak in the first picture of her, but again, this could be the angle.

    I like the roan filly's head, but her throatlatch could be a bit cleaner. I like the angle she has to her pasterns and hooves. And her insane cuteness is an added bonus

    The second one looks to be a few months older, but it's hard to tell if she'd be any better. Something about the second just seems to be a bit off to me. I really like the roan, but I'm no real judge of horseflesh. Look what I have!

    Judging by the pictures, I would go with the roan :) x
