Any opinions on this mare? Arabian...

Do you guys think she's too old to get back into barrels? I have such a soft spot for Arabians and I don't want that getting in my way lol. What do you guys think?

And yes, the caps makes my head hurt -.-

No reason she's too old. I know a lot of older barrel horses. I have a huge soft spot for arabians too, especially arabians that barrel race.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I'm a bit worried that she looks a bit high strung, could just be maybe feeding time or something! I would text them for a video, but it's 2 am lol

High strung is't a bad thing so long as she can be brought under control. I'd go try her out, ask to try her out on the pattern a little, and see how she feels to you. And go a little earlier than the scheduled time so they can't work her and hose her off and then resaddle to show you. :)

I want to do everything from catching her, to putting her up. Of course, I want to see the owner ride first. But I'll be bringing my barrel racing instructor along too and hopefully they have an arena and she can run her on it as I'm a beginner at barrels :) I love her looks.. Tomorrow I think I'll text for videos. I have another option I'm looking at who is closer, bit we will have to really work on his price.

Can you see any glaring faults or anything? She's about 4 hours north of me.

Nothing that I can really tell from the pictures. She looks like a nice little horse to me, would love to see a video and maybe some conformation photos too.
