What do you think of these two?

Dreaming and drooling a little here. I would like to get a nice, solid, QH gelding for showing and the like (obviously these are stud colts, they would be snipped before setting foot around here!). I'm going to sell Red once he's finished a little more nicely, Deevs and Loki are staying of course. Maybe I'll end up with one....who knows

Fonder of Party at Cinco than I am of Topaz Ray. I think Cinco has a much nicer head. Topaz obviously has a more mature body. Hard to pick a favorite.

Half sister to Cinco, didn't she mature beautifully?

Nooooo No mares for me. I did the mare thing....Loki thought he was a stud and there was nothing but calling. Every time you took her out, he'd be pining at the gate like a lovesick puppy.

She IS nice, I just like my boys.

Topaz I think has a really nice, good looking build. But I think Cinco will mature out very nicely, just a little later. Plus that dainty little head...!

Wait! I'll fix it....

They both look like they are coming along nicely and have kind faces. I would take a really good look at their pedigrees and parents before making a final decision so you can get a better comfo idea from their lines. As far as my pick I like Topaz, but I am a sucker for solid bays. They are both very handsome and kind looking though.

Your horse is an extension of you.

Cinco is a lot more inbred (but I will NOT be breeding-any stud will be gelded). But overall, I both of their lines.
They don't have that hyper-bred QH look but MOSTLY (not every horse is perfect!) they have nice hips and shoulder, broad foreheads with big liquid eyes. Nice neck-to-chest tie ins. Clean legs. Horses you look at and think 'That's an intelligent animal'.

Good, trustworthy horses that just go out and preform well.
Some Halter horses I've seen just don't look trustworthy (some completely unridable due to conformation) and some Preformance horses just look like their about to go all bug eyed and spazz.

They do look like they have small feet, though. I'd have to see them in real life, as it's difficult to tell.

I also really like that the colts are actually worked some, and not just "you buyer, you deal with it. Pfffft."

Wait! I'll fix it....

Small feet isnt always a bad thing. They allow for better balance on terrains and a lot of QH don't need shoes either!

Of the 3 I really like the mare the best.. but since she is out I like Cinco better. Something about Topaz's neck bugs me. It almost looks like its a ewe neck?

I have never heard of small feet allowing for better balance. I would think the opposite actually.
