Shire pictures

These are the horses im talking about.
The one with the solid white on the face is the one with the bony butt and likely the one I will buy.
The one with the black dot in the white on the face is the older male.
Both are around a year old.
I know the pictures arent the best but are there any thoughts on these horses you can see from the pictures ?
They look fit too me but im definitely no expert.

You can't just buy one. Those are the rules.

At this age, most drafts look like yaks so it's tough to figure out how they will mature out. Better body shots would help so you could evaluate the parts. Is a bony butt a body butt or a weak hip?

It doesnt look like a weak hip to me... it doesnt look bad either... if anything it kind of looks like his hips are a bit tall... but its soooo slight I saw it once and didnt notice it this time but my girlfriend noticed it this time.
