Critique Dutch Warmblood confimation

Could I get a confirmation on this 16.1 Dutch warmblood mare. We're thinking of purchasing her, so just want to get an idea of what you all think. These are not my photos, so this is all I have on her stance.

Shes nice and short coupled! Bet she jumps lol
Lovely markings!! She just looks a little out of work to me...unshod or in need of trimming, and needing a little more topline but over all a nice little horse!

Conformation wise, nothing screams DON'T BUY ME - she just seems out of shape, lacking muscle tone overall. I'm a stock breed person, so her hip looks a bit lacking to me / steep in angle, but again, that could just be a muscling thing. Good luck getting her! Love the markings!

Shes very nice! I love her build... and I think she will look way better with more muscle on her too!! :)

Wow, she looks nice! I agree, she looks like a jumper!

The only think I can see that I don't like is her very short hip. I would like to see a longer hip from point to point. She needs work, muscling, and hoof trimming. I like her neck a lot, and her color is beautiful!

If it was me, I would buy her. :) Good luck!

Do you by any chance know her pedigree? A certain stallion is popping to mind, so I'm curious to see if I'm right haha.
Wow, she looks a lot like my friend's mare... I betcha they are half-sisters by the same stallion.
What are you looking to do with her? That would help us pick her apart better.
She has very long toes and an under-run heel, which seems to make her pasterns seem long. I bet if you got her feet under control and re-shaped, that would be a non-issue. One thing that really stands out to me (and this can be typical of some WBs) is a fairly straight hock. Now, speaking from experience (my friend's mare is built a lot like this mare) that doesn't seem to affect my friend's mare. She has a bit of a small "engine" (rear end) compared to her shoulder. Short, athletic back, and a well-placed wither.
Wow, I cannot get over how much this mare reminds me of my friend's horse...

Thanks all for your great comments. We did notice the long hooves. Seller said they were due for a trim. My daughter noticed the straight hocks. She is a bit out of shape as the girl who used to ride her had an accident and they are having difficulty getting her enough excercise - that will change. Her sire is Popeye K.

Forgot to mention. Using her for equitation and hunter, probably no more than 3'.

Definitely needs her feet done, haha! She's cute, and I don't see anything that would stop her from being successful at the 3' level, although her hind-end angles are a little funky. This could partly be because her long hooves have her standing on her toes a bit, so with a good trim they'll probably change. Right now she's a big camped out behind and very straight throughout her hind end - there's not a lot of angle in the hock.
I love her neck - with some good work, her hind end will muscle up and I think she'll have a fantastic topline. She looks slightly long in the pastern, but not horrendously so. Love her blaze. Just make sure to get a good vetting so you know there aren't any soundness issues; other than that, I think she's a nice looking horse!

Thank's were having her vetted with xrays, so we should get a good idea of her condition.

The only thing that really stands out to me is her straight hocks.
