QH Mare to look at

I am going to look at a few horses in the morning. This is the only pic I have of this 13 yr old QH mare, 16hh. Anything stand out? I hope to take and post better pics of what I see tomorrow if I have further interest in them.

Take a stick with you or a tape measure and a level and be sure she is REALLY 16hh. She may be a bit camped under behind and a bit straight thru the hocks.. but she has a nice look about her. She looks really FAT so be aware of the issues that can cause. Look hard and long at her feet.

If you buy her have her tested for Cushings and/or insuline resistance etc. She has a crest on her neck so she may (and that is MAY) have a metabolid disorder.

Thanks for the tips. I am taking a horse experienced friend along and she is all about checking their feet (she has personal experience with problems in that area!). The owner mentioned he has the farrier coming out in the morning to trim her, so we'll see?? Not sure if he is doing it for my benefit, or if it was just coincidentally scheduled. I definitely won't get anything without a vet check.
After reading a lot of the posts here, I am aware of the dishonesty that seems to be unfortunately too common with horse sellers.

I also see what looks like crookedness in her right front leg, below the knee.

When we saw this horse, she did not look like the picture. Very skinny, looked bony in the hind end, could feel her ribs. With some other concerns, I don't think I will take a further look at this one.
