    Idk, the first isn't trained yet and the second is in foal. You could always get the first and if you didn't like her trade for the second....just a random sidenote there... Honestly I'd keep looking and maybe look for a finished horse at the same price.

    I don't want an exactly finished horse, I want to be able to say I put some effort in owning this horse. I would buy a horse that isn't trained but I wouldn't have enough time to completely break it.

    Yeah, I know exactly how you feel!! I'm kinda in the same spot, but I don't have as much money to spend though. Hope you find what you want!

    I'm kind of leaning towards Un Shackled because he's cheaper, and I don't know why but I really like him, and I for some reason feel he has potential.

    Harlee. I don't like #1 or #2. I like the invest bloodlines too. But considering the rest of their bloodlines and how "green" they are they are asking wayy too much. I like #3 the very best. He reminds me of Roman, he has Zippo Pine Bar in him, which I tend to fancy. He is cheaper, and has pretty confirmation. Roman is built more like a western horse, look how well we do in English. If you got #3 ground polls ground polls ground polls. If he dosen't /look/ like an English horse make him move like one. Its what I did with Roman. I just don't like the looks of #1 or #2, nor the price. I can't see videos, so I can't tell you my opinion on how it moves.

    I like number three but if you look at the pic they have a chain on him. It makes me think the horse might be rather difficult if they put a chain on him, you know?

    Not neccessarily. A Chain is just the classic way to lead a horse in Western Showmanship, seeing that the horse also has a show halter on, this makes sense.

    I honestly don't like numbers one or two. They are both too awkwardly built for my like. To me, a western pleasure horse should look more like the third one. Once you pile all of the heavy looking western tack and a rider on to a leaner built animal the horse all but dissapears.

    I like 3. He's a lot of horse for not a whole lot of money. It also is nice to see Zippo Pine Bar on his pedigree. He looks like he'd be a great horse. Would he be able to be registered as a pinto too because of that white spot on him?

    Nor do I care even remotely about a chain, I use chains on my horse and he's an angel, I've become accustomed to doing it. I would use a chain on any horse. I basically refuse to use regular lead ropes other than to tie with and that's it.
