Which One Would You Pick?

I've been considering buying one of my coach's fillies. But I dont know which one I would be better off getting..
This is Firefly, shes QH/arab. Shes about 2 1/2 mnths old in these first 2 pics

(and yes, she is standing on a hill)


And this is Sienna, shes 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. ;)

Ride more, worry less.

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

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