    Still looking at the shires

    Thank you for all the advice so far !
    I am still looking at the shires and thinking about the options.
    I took my mother and my girlfriend with me to look at the horses today.
    My mother has some experience with horses. We looked at the pair of twins.
    Year old green broke Black and white.
    They look good and healthy and have great personality.
    Im trying not to decide by color. Physically I can't see anything wrong.
    However... the smaller of the two horses has a strange bony bump on his back right around where his hips are. Its not major but both my girlfriend and myself noticed it. I was wondering what this could be ? Im wondering if perhaps the horse is just skinny for his age.
    My girlfriend says he has a bony butt.
    The other of the two brothers is the dominant horse but they both get along well.
    They are selling for 1500. My mother figures I should buy both horses because she doesnt want to see the twins separated. I like the idea but that means training two green shires as my first horse. I feel I can do it... but im still considering the options.
    I will bring a vet in to have a look before I make any choices.

    I have pictures ill try and get them loaded later today.

    Thanks again !
