Potential Buy Critique Wanted

So a friend of a friend has this little mare for sale and I inquired about her at the beginning of winter but financial stuff got in the way. And now that I have the money again I really want to buy her. I know the pictures aren't the best but they're the best she had of her.

In the pic with the saddle. Why does she have the chain over her nose? She looks calm, but is hard enough to handle they have to use a chain?

Because she doesn't like holding the chain part so she just hooks it over the nose, I do the same thing when I use a stud chain because one time my finger got pinched. But yeah the mare is really quiet.

that mare doesn't even look like she needs the chain in the first place ..

on another note, yes I do think she'd make a cute english pony. I'd love to see under saddle pictures, she's quite adorable! what's her height?

She sure darkens up in color from season to season doesn't she? And poor appy's and their terrible tails and manes...lol

She is a cutie though.

Her hind legs look a little posty to me. Very straight through the hock. In some of the pics her shoulder angle looks great...in others, it looks pretty upright. I'm not sure why, but her pasterns, especially her rears, look long and spindly to me, but it's only in the one pic where she's actually standing mostly square (that third pic).

Overall, she's cute and looks to be very sensible. She could use to lose a few pounds, but once she's in shape, I bet she'll be quite a looker.

A note on stud chains: If you horse doesn't need it, don't use it. Take it off completely. Stud chains can be VERY harsh. If she were to stop on her lead with the stud chain on like that, she could do some serious damage. I've only known one horse who actually NEEDED a stud chain and he's an arab gelding that came from a show barn and is a bit insane.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
