Which mare do you like best?
 
I'm thinking about going to view these mares, I have a definite preference for one of them, but based purely on pics which do you prefer.

What do you see, what do you like, don't like, and which do you like best?

Theyre both camped under- and stand under on the forend.

i like the first mares build a little better- shes got a leaner body looks like longer legs too. The second horses neck ties in way too low and is more round- kinda looks slab sided.

I like the body of the first one better, but I like the front legs on the second a whole lot better. Those super short cannons and low set knees should make for some very flowy and flat pleasure movement.

It's always so hard for me to judge a pinto just from pictures because their markings can play such big tricks on your eyes LOL.

BUT, if the second was trimmed down to where she wasn't quite so fat, I think I'd like her more because she just seems to have more substance than the first...though she is a little more upright in her shoulder.

Both have nice short backs though.

I find paints so hard to critique, my eye keeps being drawn to the pattern rather than the actual build.

There is something funky looking about the withers/shoulder in the last pic

i like the look of the first mare better than the second..i cant place my finger on it exactly..but something just seems off about the second one...

Second one hands down. She'll look lovely once she's in shape. The first one has scary-looking pasterns and angles on the lower leg. Look at the fronts in that first pic! Eek... I hope that's an illusion.

I say the first one. I prefer the way her wither runs long into her back, and I cannot see her eyes, but her expression makes me smile. Gem may toe out a bit in front, but her feet look a bit long, too. I prefer her longer pasterns.

It will be interesting to see them in person for sure, you can tell a whole lot from pics, but as we know those 2 pics can make a good horse look poor, or a poorer horse look good.

Of the two, just from those pics I like the first one best, but I freely admit that I am biased to some extent because I like her color better:oops: However, the second one being stockier may be a better fit, but she is obviously overweight in that pic, so that will be interesting to see. The pasterns are scary in the first pic, better in the second, but definitely and area for a closer look.

Oh and I found the sire

And the dam

dam is buck kneed and has a very steep shoulder- dont take offense but i do not like her at all.

i like the sire better hes stocky and shorter looking but has a short neck- it is proportionate to his body (ties in nicely) like his head shape and his color- got a nice hip too.

No offence taken at a genuine opinion genuinely shared, and the mare wouldn't be in a brood mare band of mine. I do like the stud though.
