Is this pony lame?

I don't know, I thought she seemed like a good laid back pony and then I went to this video which was linked on the ad. I'm no expert, but this pony looks like she's having some issues?

I'd love to be proved wrong, so I can go look at her.

Yes she is lame, rear left. I only watched the first 40 secs of the vid, but she is quite lame on that leg.

That's what I thought. Thanks!

I wonder if it's her stifle and can be fixed? She is fairly cheap and broke to pull, which is what I was looking for. I kind of feel bad for the girl =/ She seems kind of overweight too... maybe founder?

Yes I think it could be her stifle, but I don't know enough about founder to pass an opinion as I have never experienced it.

It's her stifle or her rear end in general, what does your farrier/vet say?

I too also thought it could be a stifle issue rather than just general lameness from say a knock in the field are a kick from another horse.

I tend to agree with stifle issues but I could see the same jerky movement in both hinds, though the left is worse, I would question if she has stringhalt.

Yes, she's lame, maybe in more than one leg. I think right front is the worst, though left front doesn't look so great either. The backs appear to be compensating somehow too.
I'd like to see her being turned to the right & trotted both ways.
She seems sweet but you may want to save yourself some heartache.
