Critique this Haflinger Mare?

From these pictures, can anyone give me their thoughts? My first thought is that her legs seem kind've short. After that, other than her being kinda fat looking, well, I haven't a clue. LOL

She looks like a typical drafty Haflinger to me, very chubby and cute. Though her fronts look like they need some work, could be the pic though...

She looks overweight (then again - so are my haflingers right now) and cute. Other than that - its really hard to tell anything else from these pictures since they are not good conformation shots.

Yeah, I know. I just wanted more of a general first impression since I know nothing about them. A lady near me wants me to buy her

She looks to be older style. Now that I took a closer look at the pics - I would be worried about those fronts being foundered.

Hmmm, I know they look a bit odd to me, but that's as far as my knowledge goes. Maybe that's what it is, then. I know one can't tell much from these pics, but I'm glad I can post them here and get your comments. It gives me a head's up, on a potential issue.

Guess what?? You were both totally on the mark! I found out she did founder last spring. You guys are awsome!

Well at least you know now. A previously foundered horse can be sound if well managed. However, it worries me that they let her get overweight with a history of founder. She would be one that would have to have her diet watched carefully to prevent it from happening again.
