Which One Would You Pick?

I've been considering buying one of my coach's fillies. But I don't know which one I would be better off getting..
This is Firefly, she's QH/arab. She's about 2 1/2 mnths old in these first 2 pics

(and yes, she is standing on a hill)

And this is Sienna, she's a CSH, also about 2 months old in these pics (I really need new ones!)

Sienna already looks much more balanced to me. I can't justify trying to critique her legs the way she's standing, but her topline is smooth and her neck is better, as is her dam's, though a little thick. What would you do with her?

I like 2nd one more. Both are cute, but head/neck of the 2nd one are more elegant in my opinion. I like more her build too.

I like the 2nd one more as well; she just looks better to me with her build & all. ;)

I'm not sure what a CSH is but, I like Sienna better. She is built more uphill, longer neck, and a more lively/kind eye. You can definitely see the QH in the other horse (not that I don't like QH, I LOVE them) but she has more of a sad eye, built downhill and her neck seems too short for her body. What do you plan on doing with the foal? Show or pleasure/trail ride? If you are planing on showing, I would pick #2 she would have more class in the show ring...if a trail horse, and you don't mind about conformation, I would pick #1 because she looks like she will be more laid backed. They both look sweet, good luck

Thanks guys, that's actually not her dam behind her, that is another mare that was out with them
This is her dam http://i26.piczo.com/view/a/1/s/5/h/...79_67565_2.jpg

I would be doing dressage and jumpers.

I just have to see if I can come up with a plan that works for the 2 of us... lol. I'll keep everyone posted.

In the more resent photos, I like sieanna better for dressage/jumpers

I actually liked Firefly. Do you have any pictures of her?

I would go with Firefly. She seems sturdier to me, and I like her neck better.
