The second horse has the better conformation and will be easier to keep sound as far as shoeing or trimming is concerned. The paint is definetly cow hocked and the front legs turn out. but i do like the pastern lenght better on the paint. If the paint was a couple hundred pounds heavier it would look like a total different horse as far as the top line. but it won't his legs any. Thats what i see in the pictures.
