It would help if you got some shots straight on of her forelegs, and then got shots from behind with his tail out of the way so his hocks can clearly be seen. In both side views she looks a little "camped under" and slightly backward kneed. This can cause problems with balance. Perhaps a little sickle hocked in the back, which can also be a balance issue. A bit straight shouldered with a straight pastern, which will shorten stride. If you are planning on using it for a performance horse it could be predisposed for early lameness, for a pleasure horse it's no problem.

This is what I see from these photos, however....they are not the greatest photos for judging conformation on so I can be really off. She looks very sweet natured, has a beautiful eye and I love the color of her coat.

You didn't say what your plans for the appy were, but if you are looking for a family horse to just have fun and putz around on, nothing to strenuous then I think you may have found a good horse for that so long as she has the sweetest of dispositions and you make sure to take care of her feet and legs.

She is a total doll :) The 13 year old girl who is pictured there (my sister) rode her today bareback with just a halter and lead and she was a perfect sweetheart :)
