Thanks everyone for the feedback on these mares.
After looking at them more closely (additional photos and info from sellers), I am finding that there are really none that stand out to me that I MUST HAVE. There are a couple that I find really nice, but then they have the blue eyes with pink around, which I just cannot get past, or they have not been tested hypp, or they turn out to be much shorter than advertised.
I am going to keep my eyes open, but I think I will save for another year, so that I have more $$ to invest. Maybe there will be more really nice prospects in the next up price bracket. I have to remember that this mare will be bought with intentions of competing and breeding - I really want to find the right horse, and I am not seeing her yet!
Thanks for helping me out with this guys, and I hope you will be willing to do so again in another year. :) Though I am postponing the mare shopping, this has helped me to figure out how to look more critically and really know what I want from our future mare. :)
