Thanks for all of your input; I'll be sure to let you know! Now I have to sell two miniatures.

I would pass on the first two on 'personality' issues right away. Both of those horses looked irritated and almost resentful of their job. Neither are particularly nice movers either.

Second and third horses, I would pass on those too. Neither are really stand outs to me. The first horse has an awkward lope/canter and the second...well...if I had to choose one out of those four, it would be her. She looks the softest to me.

All four of those still need quite a bit of training.

Out of the picture ads you listed, I really do like the Zippo mare the best. Shown by a youth, has a very versatile look. I would love to see videos of her.

Thanks, Cori. I'm waiting for a response from the Zippo mare's owner, but found another possible buy in the meantime!

First one here: Moore's Horse Company - 2 & 3 Year Olds
Feel free to look at any of these guys, also: http://www.mooreshorsecompany.com/aged_horses


ETA: Zippo mare has been sold!

What exactly are you looking for? It's kind of hard to tell because some of the horses have a lot more training than others and some have a lot better breeding and some are a lot more money. What are the most important things you are looking for? Movement, personality, breeding, experience?

Honestly, I'm not totally sure. Movement is great, personality is great, breeding is good to an extent, and experience in the show ring is not a necessity. What I'm looking for basically is a WP-trained horse who could use a touch-up and a continued training schedule to show at county and state fair, and possibly do more.

I like Zippo J Raft too.. from the photo. The photographer is standing at or behind the horse's hip and that ALWAYS makes the horse look better in the picture.

Would LOVE to see more of this horse.

I also like Tuf to Top but I am a sucker for Medicine hats with a bloody shield. However, she seems well trained. May paddle or wing in front at the trot.

I like the bay roan the best. His headset is WAY too low and that should be able to be fixed. From a quick look, he has a good balanced jog (not that high stepping walk that is supposed to be a jog that the big bay was doing) and a pretty good lope. He looks like he would move into a more 'english' frame if pushed.

Some good options in there.

I'd also like to see video of the zippo gelding.

I also like Bet I'm Good, I think he'd look much better in the video if his rider quit picking at him and pitched him away and let him work.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
