? regarding growth plate stopped growing

Looking at horse that growth plate stopped growing at age 2. In L front leg and she states has a slight bow in leg. Wanting to get family horse that will be used in 4-H. Should I be concerned about leg issues, ex. With gaming? Do they need special farrier services or shoes?

This is a case where you definitely need to have a pre-purchase exam done on the horse. Your vet should assess the leg with a good lameness exam, look at the old medical records/talk to the previous vet about the history behind the leg problem, discuss what you want to do with the horse with you and probably take some x-rays of the leg. That's the only way you will have a good idea of what this horse will and won't be capable of.
