Who would you have chosen?

Was just thinking today, over the horses that I was offered when searcing earlier this year, before I got Shea, and was curious as to what you guys thought of them, and whether you would have gotten one of them rather than Shea. Feel free to say what you think, I love my boy and am very happy with him, I'm just curious as to other opinions.
Here's some info on them.

Jack is a top schoolmaster, you wont find better. 14.2hh. Palamino Stock Horse Gelding. Done everything imaginable in a safe, steady manner. He is 19 years young and is healthy and sound, a really solid built horse.Cometing at Pony Club for over 10 years now and excelling to Jumping. Jack is easy to do everything with and is a true no fuss mount for a beginner child rider. Jack would be most suitable for a beginner wanting to start out in jumping as he has a careful, un-rushed jump and also a safe nature making him an ideal Pony Club mont ashe has been here with us.Jack has done Cattle mustering, swimming, Jumping, Pony Club Been shown, gymkhanas and exensivley trail ridden. He is a highly sought after horse, we put anyone on him, he will take care of them all the same. Jack is awaiting a loving juniour to love and spoil him as he is being wasted here due to his owners HSC commitments.
$2, 500.

We also have a Pure Arab Gelding called A.J. he is fleabitten grey and has done extensive trail riding, 10+ years of Pony Club and lessons. Lovely on trail rides, goes through water and is a really level headed Gelding, a credit to his breed. Been shows lightly int he past and would be a great asset to a junior rider or adult coming back into riding.
Beautiful type, really quiet and nice looking Gelding. 17 years young and 14.3hh. riden by capable teen and novice riders. A.J's sale is due to his rider outgrowing him. Extremly sad sale, has been with the same owners for 6 years. VIDEO AVAILABLE OF AJ! ON YOUTUBE UPON REQUEST!
$1, 200 neg

I have a standardbred gelding 14.3 hh and 7 yrs old who is really quiet and can be ridden alone or in company. walk, trot and canter is good. He is a good horse to do anything with. Asking $1000.

I am Keira. A 15.3hh, 12 year old Thoroughbred. I am an ex-racer because I was too slow. I come with my papers if sold over $650. My sire is THAMEEN(USA) and my dam is TYPICAL SUE(AUS). I have been a mummy once to a colt named "The Riddler". I am currently for sale as I am a little too forward moving and spirited for my beginner rider. I am quiet when in regular work, but am currently a bit full of myself due to being out fo work for the last few months. I am good to worm,float,farrier etc and have exceptional ground manners. I do have one bad habit and that is I can be a bit funny about my ears being touched when I'm not relaxed or I don't know you.. Another down fall I have is that I can't jump. I had a bad experience at pony club a few years ago that caused a problem. Maybe with a kind, gentle and experienced home I might learn to jump.
I need an experienced rider to bring me back into work and for me to stop being wasted in my paddock. I am currently in rugged, fat paddock condition.
My owner is asking for offers $500 and over. I am worth more than this but a good home is more important to my owner.

Shea: I don't have the original email, but he was advertised as 6yo, 15.2hh tb. very quiet. $1000

I would have chosen the SB or Shea, probably.

Shea is the last tb
He's a bit on the skinny side atm, but we're working on that and he's improving.
Keira was my 2nd choice after Shea, but sounded like she might have been a bit too much for me, and I really liked the sb, but i fell in love with Shea when I saw him.

I would have probably picked the grey pony that has done everything. Old enough that you wouldn't have to worry about anything and just have fun. I find it fishy that they are selling because the kid is outgrowing the horse when in the photo it's far from the case, not to mention if it's an old picture that is posted, the I would also be concerned as to why a new pic isn't up.

That, the 3rd last horse from the bottom was cute as well. Didn't look like a tb tho.
