Critique Paint mare?

This is a potential buy, and I'm just after some general ideas about her? :)
She is 8, 15hh and in paddock condition - just being brought back into work.
She is the one with the tiny star in the photos with the other horse

The photos are not of a type that allows good judgement of her conformation , but as for my first impression; Cute! I like her. She looks to have a nice back and good legs and overall nice balance. Definintely worth looking into.

Im going to see her towards the end of the month, so will try to get good conformation shots of her then...These are just the photos the owner sent me
The only thing i noticed is her stance...her front legs seem to be really underneath her. I don't know how to explain it..Not sure if its a problem or not though haha

Ya I noticed the front leg thing as well, my mare looked the same way in the pics that I got sent to me when I was looking into her. Turns out all she needed was a proper trim.
I agree the pics aren't great for a confo critique, but from what I can see has decent bone nice hip and overall a good looking horse. If I were in your shoes I'd go and take a look at her!

She looks nice :) Of course I am very particular to paints LOL, she look nice and stout, neck seems to tie in well, but would like to see better side picture, pretty head. Cannon bones look short and decent wither, back looks nice and short.. I like her :) Would like to see her move..

All I can tell from these pics is, cute! and she seems to have a nice level topline. The standing underneath herself thing, isn't that big a deal. I have a horse who does that everytime I try to get a good confo pic, he stops with his front legs under himself and then moves as soon as I give up and take the pic. GRRRRRR! See what she does in person, it'll be more 'honest' than just a quick snapshot.
