Talking New kid on the block!

Hey all, I figure I should introduce myself and my two colts.
I'm just getting back into the swing of things with horses/training and the ranch life. I was raised around horses and did some training before I was really old enough lol. But life led me astray for some time.
Now, here I am!
Basically all the knowledge I have is of the old cowboy ways, I guess you could say. So I'm interested in learning more of modern western riding and training.
I've recently bought myself two un-started yearling colts, both QH, one regiestered.
The grade one is my boy, Alo. I'm sure he'll end up gray as can be like his daddy.
The registered colt, who hasn't yet received a name, will be trained and used on the farm untill I feel he is safe for a new home. I'm curious to as to what you all think of his color..??
Also, please give me your opinions on them, honestly. As far as conformation and whatnot, I don't have the keenest eye! lol

Welcome to the forum!! Handsome boys you have there. No name looks like he's going gray for sure.

Being horseless is the pits!!

It's not possible to really give a conformation critique from those photos. I can see that both of them have lovely heads and the lighter gray has a nice neck and shoulder. They look offhand like very nice, practical qh types. the kind that get the job done.
