Talking Need input on Breyer of my horse

Ok Horse People, I want to make a Breyer to look like Harley. I have selected a few of them and would like to get some input on which one captures his likeness the most. I will be doing the color myself so ignore the colors. Just looking for something that looks a lot like him conformation wise and which one looks like him the most in the face. Thanks! Below are some of the models I had in mind plus some of him blended with the models

I'd say "Stud Spider" is the closest...

I was thinking Stud Spider or Zippo Pine Bar

I think the Roxy one looks the most like him. Such a cool idea. Be sure to post a picture of the finished product :)

I say Roxy or Zippo Pine Bar.

Strapless isn't a bad option, but that's a typical English type mold, and the mane is short. Even the unbraided version just seems a little too feminine for your Harley.
Keep in mind Roxy is also a mare, so some ... uh ... anatomical corrections may need to be made. Most customizers can do that for you though. What breed is Harley? I was assuming Quarter Horse when I read this, and ZPB and Roxy seem to portray that breed well.
This is coming from someone who showed models, so I'm a little picky :p

Unsure about his breed. He was tagged to go to a Mexico slaughterhouse as a yearling. Im guessing either QH, Solid App, or Solid Paint
