Possible Broodmare...

Hey guys. I know of an 8 yr old Dutch mare that is having some problems with her hind end. She was pushed a little too hard we think and has a slight bone spur that might be able to be rehabbed or some other injury that mimics a bone spur. She's fine for light riding and is pasture sound but gets a little unsound behind if she's pushed but this is recent, the owners just don't want to lay her up and rehab her themselves or do a lot to find out what's wrong. I'm considering taking her on to see if I can get her sound and/or use her as a broodmare. Wanted to get your opinions on her as a broodmare if she isn't able to be rehabbed and put back into training. Pick her apart please and unfortunately I don't yet have any of her pedigree info but I will post it when/if I get it. Just wanted to see what other people had to say about her pictures. Thanks!

She has well rounded croup and good tail set. It's hard to tell from the picture if what I assume to be muscle is fat or not. But say if it's muscle she's got nice this gaskins, nice short cannon bones, beautiful shoulder slope, Her back looks a little long but maybe that's just the breed. She's real pretty.

I don't think it is fair to her to have to carry a foal then care for it with her injuries. Then again, you know the extent of them better than I do.

I mean she's gorgeous though! :)

ETA: As for confo, I noticed she looks over the knee in addition to what the above poster said.
