"Will trade for donkey"
"November special price"

They need this horse gone, why if they want a donkey - huge red flag to me.

Confirmation matters even if you are not showing as as badly conformed horses sometimes cannot be ridden. Imagine you look like the hunch back of notre dame could you piggy back anyone?

Some of these ads are beyond bizarre..

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

I agree with everyone else....out of the horses you listed, I like the appy the best. Se has a nice expression and a prettier head than most appys I've seen. She is decently proportionate and has nice clean looking legs, although se might be a little post legged. That could just be the pictures though. There is something about the way that her neck ties in that I really don't like.
It sounds to me, though, that she might suit you well for what you want to do.

I know that you said this is your first horse and you are very excited, but I REALLY want to caution you against getting emotional about the purchase of a horse. It is very easy to just want to take home the first horse you go and see because "OMG my own pony!!!", but 99 times out of 100 the first horse you see is not the one for you. I know it is hard to say no, but if there is even one thing about the horse that you don't like or that you find yourself wanting to change, then please keep looking. In the grand scheme of things, an extra month or so of horse shopping isn't the end of the world. Do you maybe have a good trainer who you could take with you when you go to visit these ponies? Having a good professional opinion is really a valuable thing. The last place you want to end up is with a horse that is too much work for you...because it would be a huge drag if one year from now you realize that you have sunken tons of time and money into a horse that you can't do anything with.
I'm sorry to be lecture-y, but your first horse should be lots of fun and not a lot of work! Enjoy horse shopping and please let us all know what you pick!
