Don't see any reason to breed a subpar animal just because her owner wants a 'peace' of her.
An even more compelling reason not to breed her, besides her less than perfect conformation, is that we shouldn't be breeding rescue horses. I certainly hope whatever rescue gave her the animal made sure they have an ironclad, no-breeding contract.
Nothing about that mare screams quality to me. She's probably a very nice horse who makes her owner happy, but that's no reason to breed her.
Only horses of superb conformation and quality traits /should/ be bred. Doesn't always happen as you see but that's the way it should be. Why pass on undesirable traits? If you want a piece of the horse, take a length of tail or mane and have it made into a bracelet or something.
