Hoof Questions For Weanling

I have went to look at a weanling a few times that I am interested in purchasing very soon. She is very friendly and willing with good confirmation and what im looking for. She looked okay the first few times I went to see her. However the last time (about a week ago) her back feet had gotten extremely long. Now this filly has not had much work, she can halter and they have started teaching her to lead. I had practiced picking up her feet when I visited her and she was very willing and picked all 4 up but of course could not hold it for too long.
My question is, if they have gotten to long and it may take another week or two before my farrier comes out after I purchase her, would there be any real damage to her growing legs and body? I would say her back hoofs are about 1.5in longer than it should be. Should I be worried about damage or her growth or is this normal?
