Opportunity to Purchase Need A vote

I've been looking at many prospects to show. I was looking at this pretty girl. I'm sort of stuck. Need a vote. Should I look at her more or keep looking?

She's cute. Not gonna lie... but those pasterns are scarey, and the left front looks swollen.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

Pretty girl, until you look at her pasterns.... I'm no expert, but they look swollen and they are extremely upright. I'm not even sure what to call this confo flaw, but I would absolutely not purchase her. To be honest, her legs scare me too. I would love for someone who knows what they are talking about to give their opinion, I've never seen this before. Maybe Elana??

Looks like there's a lump on her belly in the first few photos. I don't really like her IMO I'd pass

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

The hernia, lumps on her left leg, swollen front left pastern, post-leggedness, and splay-footedness in the front say "no."

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

i would say no, sorry there are just too many flaws in her legs that are a little scary. what's going on with the back right leg in some pictures??

If you aren't scared, you aren't running fast enough!

Agree-she is cute, until you look at her legs. Left front ankle does look swollen, and in the last 2 pics there is a large lump on her right rear.....unfortunately, horses aren't much good without 4 good legs, no matter how cute they are.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I saw the same with the rear leg in the last two pictures and in the others you can't see her back legs well like those pictures

Agree with everyone else.....4 bad wheels on this one. The bump on the back leg concerns me. She's really straight from the gaskin and through the hock.
