    My order of preference, assuming #2 has clean legs under the boots, is: #2, #4/5 (same horse?), #1, #3. If you decide on #3, I'd definitely X-Ray his ankles. #1 looks to have a pretty good sized...

    Thanks BFNE, it totally sucks, though I must say she was very accident prone. I hope for your sake that is not a hereditary trait! She was very refined but had a lot of presence and charisma that...

    I had a mare by Stormello - she was an incredible mover and jumper - definitely an UL prospect, though she was a sensitive, forward ride. She was super brave with great instincts over fences....
