    She's a bit ewe necked...but most OTTB's are it seems and that's fixed with proper riding anf felxing and suppling and such.

    She has my vote because she has the most preferable confo to me. Nice back and shoulder with a good hip...balanced and not too short backed without looking to long either...but that's just the way she looks to me...someone else might think otherwise.
    I do like her a lot. She's only 3 and right off the track so she has time to mature and once I start working with her I'm sure she'll improve (based on where her neck ties in).

    Those were my 2 favorites intially as well. They're all my "favorites" but those two are the ones I keep going back to look at over and over again!! Haha. I am in LOVE with tall red horses. :) Thanks!

    I am going to see First and Gold this week - I just got off the phone with the people. Inki Blandford is there as well, but she said F&G is "beefier" which I think is what I want. So excited!

    These two are my favorites as well. The others seem a tad light-boned for what you want. Good luck with your trip out to see him!

    All of them look decent. I like the first horse and last horse.. the last one is definitely a mover!

    The only one I would say no to right off the bat is the third one, Three Way Act. He is cute but he has long, upright pasterns. He would be prone to ankle injuries.

    You can refer to this wiki I found.. Equine conformation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'm just going to throw this out there... that if they have a lipchain on Three Way Act, just for standing that might mean he has a hot personality... so, just be aware of that... they usually only put lip chains on when theyre butt heads for hot walking kinda weird they have one on for just standing...

    Grooms and Thoroughbred owners often use a chain on all of their horses as a precaution. With so many horses in one breeding farm, it's hard to keep tabs on which horses need a chain, which are pushy without one, etc.

    Weird, I worked with thoroughbreds all the time on a thoroughbred farm and at the track for about 5 years... the only time we ever used a lip chain was if they were a known butthead... other whys it was just a nose chain. To each their own I suppose.
