Too many Arabians! Which do you prefer?

I'm looking for an endurance prospect and after starting my search a few have popped up and I'm stuck! They all have qualities I quite like.

#1). Strait Russian bred 3 yr old gelding. Nefison X Rare Sensaytion. Not broke, I would have to travel to the next province to see him.

#2). TW Abititbi, 7 year old broke gelding. Bred by Touchwood Arabians- specialize mostly in working cow horses and reining. I have not yet seen him. I don't have dam and sire names but should be similar lines to the below horse.

#3). Another Touchwood Horse. 4 year old mare, TW Marshal X Davids Gee Golly. Has had 6 weeks under saddle. I've ridden her and she's lovely but toed out in the back and she's dainty.

If you're looking for an endurance prospect, I would have to go with the first guy. Russian Arabians tend to be larger with great bodies (larger heart girth) with super good bone and fence and don't break down very easy. Is he by Belerian Arabians?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE TW Marshall and have toyed around with the idea of buying him with his owner, just so far the cards haven't lined up. Not too familiar with that filly's dam but I'm guessing she looks more like her then him.
Really crappy picture of the second gelding, but the first thing that stands out is his long back. Hard to say, though, if it's the horse or the photo.
Too bad you don't want to wait two years, I have two super good endurance prospects on the ground, but are just weaners. lol

These two girls are both Russian (Their grandsire Nariadni is sired by an Aswan daughter with the Amurath lines - very similar to that girst guy) and as you can see, they aren't horses that will break down when pushed.

Two other bloodlines to consider are both Polish and CMK. CMK horses tend to be built much like these ones and have done extremely well in endurance these last few years.

Lol, no sorry, that didn't come out right. I meant like age, what are you doing with her, that kinda thing. I love bays, especially with chrome

Oh! LOL
I was gonna say she was being a tard and wouldn't stand still properly. :lol:

She is one of my show mares - she's finished and competed in both Western Pleasure and Reining, with a little bit of halter as a youngster. Planning on getting her chunky butt back in the show ring this spring and then breed her for her first foal (she's a 1997 model).
Right now she's been my main riding horse while I get back into condition after breaking my femur/hip so she's got a big responsibility even not showing. :-)

She is gorgeous!
