Question Under at the knees?

I was wondering if you guys think that this mare is under at the knees or not. I'm thinking about buying her but I've heard that being under at the knees, or calf kneed, is somthing that you want to avoid. Sometimes she looks to me like she is under at the knees and sometimes I'm wondering how I got that idea.

Do you mean back at the knee? This mare looks like she is in addition to some really bad farrier work.

Sorry but those are REALLY unflattering pictures. You should ask for some real conformation pics. Back at the knee would be the least of my worries from those pics at least. What are you looking to do with her? She does look back, but again the pics are awful.

If you're gonna sell your horse you should at least brush it and take flattering pics imo. I have a negative opinion of the seller just from that.
