Help! How do you pick and choose?
You really do need to start your own thread for your post - it will keep things tidy and focused for you and the OP (Original Poster) of this thread as you are each seeking your own information and input. All you need to do is click the "New Thread" button you will see at the top/left of the screen when you are viewing a particular forum - so, choose the forum where your particular topic best fits (ie "horse talk"), click "New Thread" and it will bring up a window similar to the window you just used to post in this thread, but you will be starting your own separate thread.

Well I found two I really, really like. Go figure their the drivin to Hollywood twins I used to take care of two years ago and are only 45mins away. 2500 each which is a ways over my budget and a little to quick as well. Guess I will keep an eye on them.

Depends. If you are talking those lines with in 2 generations with proven sire and dam? NO you will not find one at least not with out a lot of looking. If you are looking for those lines just on the horses papers and the sire and/or dam are not proven you probable could find one.

Aks yourself what level do you wish to take this prospect too? If you are talking local stuff not breed or affilate type things then that would be a bit esier to find. If you are looking for a prospect that can be competitive at the breed level or affiliate level again probably not.

The line sound nice. Being twins I would have the checked quite well by a good vet to make sure there are no problems with them. If all is good and they have good conformation the price sounds good depending on how close up those lines are.

The smaller one is a little to small, she's estimated to be 14hh. If I were to buy one I would buy the older one.
