My 2 cents' says the bay's movement is much better. I saw very short stride in the grey and although they talk about him "learning to move out," it looks more conformational to me. He LOOKS like he'd move good - I agree he's super cute - but when I watch him move, his movement just doesn't match up with his looks. I think work will improve him, but not to the degree it will the bay. The bay looks stiff in his canter, but his trot shows a lovely length of stride at times. You get the feel - no, evidence, even at this stage - of what he CAN do. My money's on the bay
haha I didn't even watch the damn videos... i think I better go do that...lol... and I don't know why I think a bow is less "scary" than osselets... I just do... Had many ex racers with bow's and NEVER one single problem.. however... I have not ever had one with osselets... so I guess that's why... lol
i'd personally keep looking (although this rescue what have you does an amazing job with turnout of their horses! wow) but if i had to pick one i'd go with the grey.
the stiff back and hitchy stifles of the other are two things that make me nervous
Please keep in mind that New Vocations does not allow you to test ride the horse. We went to look at several, were only able to watch them lunge, and went home with a horse that was "calm, well tempered, trainable mare with great ground manners". We brought her back 2 weeks later...
