I know she is stretched forward so it's not ideal..

The owner said when she bought her she was told the sure and dams names but she didn't recognize them and wasn't too concerned with registering her.

She's definitely worth a look. What are they asking for her?

I don't see a post leg at all...she's got a nice angle to her hock. I don't see anything in that 3rd pic either...other than the camera caught that leg in motion. I don't see a clubfoot either (as Saddlebag mentioned). This mare very well could be close to 16hh, as she has some length to her cannons. I LOVE the deep heartgirth and the upsweep of her underline. She looks very Appendix-ish and I see her more as a hunt seat type.

Not tracking under is not a big deal to me, because that is a body use/training issue and the rider in this pic is not doing ANYTHING but just sitting there.

I like this mare....

I'm really looking forward to going to see her tomorrow I've been on the hunt for the right horse for me for awhile here's hoping this is a match.
They are asking 3000 she has been ridden English and western..I do plan on seeing how she does with jumping eventually.
Thanks for all if the comments!

As far as any possibility of something going on with her leg..if I go and see her tomorrow and she seems to be a good horse for me I will have a vet check done when I go down the next time..so I would assume they would catch that then.

I honestly see nothing at all "going on" in her right front in any of the photos, so I must respectfully disagree with existentialpony.

A pre-purchase exam is a great option, and I'm glad you're going to have that done before you buy! :) So many people don't bother, and then they end up with all sorts of issues from a problem that no one knew was there! Vet checks for the win! Woo...!

Let us know how it goes! :) I feel excited for you! :3 She's a really cute mare!

I love you, Mudpie!

A great friend of mine and my very first riding coach vet checked every horse she ever bought except one and she turned out to be half blind..so I always remember that..worth the price of the vet check.
Corporal and mudpie like this.

Today is Saturday so I hope when you get back from seeing her (if you aren't too exhausted from a seven HOUR ROUND TRIP DRIVE..HAHA!) that you will soon post the "findings"..if you can tell from all of my "likes" on everyone's comments, I, too, think she is absolutely lovely.

I really hope you find good things on the visit....also glad you're getting a PPE! As someone looking for my very first horse over the next year, I think I'd be so scared to buy without one, since even an exam isn't 100%. The idea of buying essentially "blind" is far too much responsibility for a first time horse owner (speaking regarding myself); not to mention that insuring for illness/injury would be a must in my type A, anxious mind! :0)
