These are not the greatest pictures and I couldnt really see the dams body but her head and neck looked good to me and I loved the sire, though again it was hard to see his body. But besides her parents, I think the filly looks nice, with good conformation. If I were you, I'd defiantly buy.

Horses may be cookies to the soul - but ponies are Ben & Jerry! ;)

Cant tell anything about the dam because the pics are no good, but she is quite wide in her front end. Pretty girl though
As for the sire, he's a handsome fella. Dont see any really bad faults...back might be a tad long and a little butt high but it's hard to tell with the pictures.

There is a red flag there you might want to check out. They just bought the dam in 2008 and she is for sale already. As a former breeder, I can tell you breeders are very reluctant to part with good broodmares. They evidently aren't happy with her production for one reason or another. Everything might be OK, but if it were me, to be on the safe side, I would check out her production just to make sure there is not some transparent issue she is passing on...
