I don't know what you're planning on doing...but I like Jimmy the best. He looks like the best little all-arounder. The second one looks like he's holding himself weird like he has pain somewhere. That last one has a bizarre hind end. And the shire is kind of the odd man out compared to the others you've chosen to look at.

I like Jimmy as well.

I really like Sampson a lot. My second favorite is Jimmy.

Sampson is just beautiful. I would completely overlook Doc, he stands way under himself all around so that makes me wonder about his soundness. Everything about him is short; short back, short neck, short legs, short croup, etc. And at 13.2hh, he nearly qualifies as being a pony. Lots of people like short horses but I prefer something over 15hh. Gunner has a very long croup and a wierd tail set and if he has been trained on barrels, I would not trust him to be calm. Calm barrel horses do happen but are few and far between. Plus, those scars on his nose from a tiedown really don't do much for his appearance or what I imagine his personality is. I agree with the previous 2 posters, my favorite is still Jimmy with Sampson taking a close second. The only problem with him is that you would have to get all new tack that would fit him, where what you have already would likely fit a QH.

Agreed, like SAmson and Jimmy, not Gunnar and Doc

I really like Jimmy! Sampson is great too but I just can't afford him and the seller can't lower the price much at all. so Jimmy it is then! He was my first choice anyways. :)

Go for jimmy, that is a nice looking gelding. Nice conformation, looks kind, and a nice color to boot.

smrobs 04-09-2009 10:43 PM

Of course, all this depends on whether you and Jimmy get along or not. ;p I am hoping for the best and want pix if you bring him home. I would go ahead and try the other two since you are going to be there anyway. You know the old saying, "If you look with your heart instead of your eyes, you are likely to overlook the obvious flaws".

Nicely said!^^

I am hoping for the best. And whatever happens, happens for a reason. Wish me luck!
