    Paint gelding, weird angle on the picture and I would like to see him without a saddle from the side, back, etc. Description sounds nice. The buckskin, I would also like to see better pictures of him from different angles.

    They look OK, though a few more photos would be better. But Iíd still go with the mare. Her confirmation??, I canít think of any real complaints, maybe a little light in the bone???, but itís hard to tell from a photo; and if the seller is telling the truth and she hasnít been ridden much, with good work and appropriate nutrition she should muscle up nicely. Personally I donít think thereís any need to go pulling out a measuring tape and go measuring her pasterns and a protractor for her feet; since is only costing you a few hundred after all, not tens of thousands. But she has something the other two donít, a womb, that makes her more valuable to me. When she is past riding, find a good stud to put her to and you wonít need to buy another horse, just go foal for foal with the studís owner.

    The geldings,neither have decent pictures to judge conformation,but from the 2 in pics prefer the look of the buckskin. From descriptions,not that those are much better sounds like the Paint horse has had more riding. Best thing if they aren't too far is to go see them,or at least find more about their training better pictures.

    Thanks everyone. I do want to check out the horses, but I'm discussing with my family whether it'd be better to buy, lease, or lease to own right now. So we'll see what happens! I may continue to post other ads or show you other horses and get your opinions, if that's alright? ;)

    I know from experience, that if you are looking at horse ads be prepared to buy NOW! I mean it's just torturing yourself by looking, seeing them sold, and you have to start looking all over again... Pick a price range, and if you see a horse that interests you, pick up the phone right away and talk to the seller then go look...

    Horse shopping is so fun!

    Horse shopping is fun, but can be frustrating!! >:/ Especially when you've run out of ads to look at because your price range is pretty low.
    However, I think my family and I have decided on leasing another horse first. I'm going to be seeing a horse tomorrow that I might possibly lease, and I have a really good feeling about this. I will probably make another thread introducing the horse, etc. because I'm really excited!
