    Who should I buy?

    Well I'm looking for a horse, again. My mare, Paris, can no longer take me to the higher level jumping classes and now I'm looking for a horse. :) I'm looking for a horse that has loads of potential but hasn't done much. I want him/her taller than 15.3, older than 4 and younger than 10.

    Here are a few horses I'm interested in... Tell me what you think! :)

    Things I like -

    An amazing personality!
    Fun ride!
    Wins everything!
    And I've fallen in love with him... He is an amazing horse!

    Things I don't like -

    He roars and has had strangles.

    Horse 1 - "Baby"

    He is cute, but I really odn't like the fact that they're jumping him so high at such a young age - could lead to problems down the road. I would seriously give him a pass.

    Horse 2 - "Cat"

    I like him, and 10 is not old at all. He's mature and can handle tougher training.

    Horse 3 - "Dancer"
    They sure didn't put much effort into that picture did they? Honestly, if you're selling a horse for that much money, there should be a decent picture. The mare "might be" pregnant? The mare owner should get an u/s done to determine that.
    I would want to see better pictures, you can't tell anything from this one.

    Horse 4 - "Clover"

    Although not a great picture, I really like her... a lot. She needs some weight. The only thing about her is her height - it's not very marketable.
