Hey there, Coda is lovely. Her front legs are nice and straight, a rear on shot would give us a look at her hocks. However judging by the way she moves in the vid she certainly shows no sign of being cow hocked and moves like her hind legs are straight. She has a nice girth, just the right depth for her size and her shoulders slope nicely.
Looking at her topline she may be a little short in the neck and back. This is not a bad thing and means that she may just be a little choppy and rockinghorse-ish in her gaits. This is just a personal opinion and other people may disagree. Looking at that though makes me want to say that when you do start riding her do make sure that you keep your hands nice and low. In my own personal experience a horse with a short neck tend to want to keep their nose in the air rather than head down, flexed at the poll.
All of this is only my opinion feel free to take with a grain of salt. I think she is wonderful.
