Club footed?

So I was admiring the newest addition on the CANTER website (and thinking about e-mailing them about her for more details) when I noticed that her feet looked slightly off.

I'm just wondering if my eyes are playing tricks on me or if her feet actually look kind of off. All of her conformation shots were done in that footing so that's the best picture I could find showing her feet.

They do look pretty off to me too. I'd be wary, it may just be the footing but they seem small and clubbed.

That's what I was thinking, although I don't think she'd be in my budget anyways since it says she's been in training with a professional eventer for a bit now. I've found another mare though who is only $500 who appears to be nicely built (and doesn't have club feet) but I'm waiting for more pictures and possibly a video.

Ask for confirmation shots on the cement. On the sand is questionable. The RF pastern looks full and the hoof doesn't seem to follow the same angle with the pastern. Yes, cameras do distort things. Best to tell the seller to get the horse out of the sand.

Front right and hind left look off to me.
