I would need conformation pictures to really give you my thoughts.
She's a nice enough looking mare..looks a bit calf-kneed and her back is too long for my taste- but her conformation is better than that of a lot of minis that I've seen.
But Bridgertrot has a very good point. You shouldn't breed a horse just because it is 'pretty' or 'good natured.' because personality and looks aren't always carried through. IMO you would be better off buying a foal that is already on the ground, by a well known stallion and mare with showing in their backround- preferably double registered, and starting it. Even if you had to travel to another state, or have it shipped to you- you'd still be better off because you'd already know what the foal looked like, it'd be a guarentee, and you wouldn't have to pay for prenatal care. There are some very nice miniature foals in the $750-$1,000 range already. No need for more.
I'm not going to advise you against breeding her until I've seen confo shots, but remember that it's always a risk. My miniature mare almost died in delivering her foal this year, and the foal was stillborn. Its a lot of risk to take with a very iffy outcome.
