Critique this horse (QH mare)

I'm currently looking to buy a horse and this one caught my eye. I am not sure what breed the horse really is.. I'm told she's a QH but not registered so can't be sure. Anyway I have 2 pictures but they aren't the best .. do her legs look odd to you? Or maybe it's just the angle/leg position..

no. her legs do not look odd to me. mind you, this is only two photos, and not good ones for confo crit, at that.

I like her. She's not perfect, but there's a lot to like about her. she has good bone, decent hocks , if a bit straight, typically short and upright pasterns for a QH, seems to have good size feet. her back is slightly long and might have a mild hunters bump, though it could be an illusion from the photo. The canons seem nice and short, big shoulder and long neck that with proper riding will really look nice. I do not see any glaring faults.

I will try to get a better picture on Friday when I see her, not sure why but her hind legs looked a little funny to me in these pictures, but yeah they aren't the best for confo crit. Thanks for pointing out the hunters bump, I will have to check that out :)

In the first picture she does look like she's sickle hocked but it could be how she stands too.
