Please Critique this possible buy.

This is a mare I'm thinking of buying.... She is almost 4, and is APHA/AQHA. Bloodlines are for barrels. Mostly tho, I'm just getting her to break her in, and see what she's like, see where she would do well.

Sorry, I know these aren't the best critique pictures, and I didn't know how to flip them. Just do your best! =)
Let me know the good, the great, the bad and the ugly! =)

Very hard to judge a lot of things from those photos. Her hind pasterns seem a bit dropped. I do like her very low placed hocks and knees. Might be a little over at the knee which is not really an issue.

Cannot really tell if she has a good shoulder or is downhill. She looks like she stands over a lot of ground (but I could be wrong because there is no side shot). Long and short legged won't help a gaming horse.

Need better photos.
