Horse I'm adopting, what do yea think?

This is Strawberry. She is 4 almost 5. I am adopting her from a horse rescue. Her first owners were careless leaving dangerous machinery in the pasture where she hurt her chest almost a 180 but the vet did an amazing job as its fully healed and you can't see the scar. She is about 15.1 hands Green broke and wonderful!!! From what I checked out has nice legs and feet but would like another opinion. Thank you! :) She isnt at the rescue in these pics because she was adopted out to someone that couldn't pay the board anymore so I visited that stables to see her. So sorry for all the poops lol

Nice compact little thing. There actually isn't one thing I don't like about her. Overall, she's very nice! I certainly would take her home! She'll be gorgeous once she sheds out in the spring. You MUST post pictures!

Claport Exactly what I was going to say, "nice compact horse".
I think she is nice and you both are lucky to have eachother.

A fairly nice horse I would say.
Good shoulder on her
Neck set is not bad either
Back is a decent length
Front legs look good, although to me, her cannons appears slightly too long
Not a bad pastern angle
Steep slope to the croup but otherwise with some muscling her hindquarters will be nice
Back legs, to me, look a tad sickle-hocked, but not to any severe degree so no worries there.
Again, overall a very solidly built horse. Congrats!
