Critique this 4 year old OTTB?

These are some pics of her before she went to the place I am getting her from.

And here are some pictures of her after the person got her. This is her current condition. Please critique her as best as you can.

Good solid shoulder on her
Plenty of depth through the chest
Neck is set high and is long
Over at the knee
Back is borderline long as well
Bum high, which is odd for a TB since they are usually built more uphill
I like her hindquarters, though they could use just a bit more muscle to match her front end
Posty in the back legs

So would she be okay with jumping? Also, what does posty in back legs mean?

Posty means that there isn't enough angle to her legs :) they're very straight.

A bit posty through the hocks and she tends to stand camped under. She is a bit down hill and she appears pigeon beasted. Her hind hocks are large, roomy and well placed (low).

Her front legs are light and her point of shoulder is set a bit low. If you jump this horse she probably will make a 2' or 2'6" horse and I would put some sort of support on her front legs (professional choice boots or something that supports her fetlock joint and tendons).

See how it goes. She may jump OK.. flat and with knees adequately high to make an equitation horse. Or she may surprise you.... and be scopier than her conformation says she will be. That sometimes happens.

Yes that is her name. I am interested in possibly trading my quarter horse for her.
