I really don't like nubmer ones neck/shoulder connection or really anything about it. Steep croup. Two is downhill. I'm not a fan of number ones back pasterns or any of number twos. Number one is camped under on all in front and back it seems which is very odd.

Both have nice legs though.

All and all, two is better IMO.

hmm...this is weird.
B/c the two competed against each other last year in mullet hall open class.

Horse #1 placed 1st out of 7
And horse #2 placed 6th.

maybe it was the judge?

well it depends on how each moves. Judged don't usually look at conformation unless it's a halter class. Maybe #1 moved nicer than #2

well yes, #1 moves much better, I would know because I own him.

#2 is owned by my best friend.

We have shown together many times, both in halter and showmanship. But my horse always comes out on top.


But anyway...who has the better looks?
I wanna know b/c we have this little "beauty contest:" type thing at my barn and we want a basic out look on who would win if it came down to them two LOL. Childish...i know.
