    So what's wrong with the mare? She is just as nice as the gray conformation wise, if not better suited. I think she has better overall balance and proportion.

    I would start with her and see how she progresses, sinking my 600+ into regular lessons and training.

    I agree with Cutax.

    The bay looks to be better put together IMO. Enjoy the bay. Get some good lessons. Pass on the grey.

    THANKS! Wow... this is great.. I think I was VERY swayed by the whole 'gray' thing.

    I have been working w/Ama and she is very smart and easy to train.
    I am going to keep working w/ her and not sink $600 . You are right I can use that $ to take lessons!!!

    I think I am in the winter 'funk' and thought a 'new' horse would be 'fun'.. ugh...

    It's not a great pic. The comments are great. But at 600, this mare is practically given away. She looks plenty good for a 600 dollars horse in my opinion... if she is that correct, she wouldn't be this price, would she. I've seen sale horses with way worse conformation asking for much more. Having said that, it depends ALL on your goals.

    OMG, I used to do this. I now have a barn full of horses. BEWARE! BEWARE!!!!!!

    PS: deals are seldom deals as they take time, money, effort. Take more lesson on your lovely bay.

    PPS: greys show all the dirt and seem to love sleeping in poo. Just a thought.

    You need to get photos of her standing on a level surface and side on in order to get a decent conformation critique.
