I don't know if it's so much that her legs are short, as her back is long. But regardless, she well be prone to early sway-back because of her weak loins. Her neck is attached low on her sholders and she is every-so-slightly sickle hocked with short, upright pasturns and a short croup.
Personally, I wouldn't breed her. May I ask why you want to breed her in the first place?
She's a cute mare, that's for sure - and she'll probably make a great trail mount, with trail horses I'd pick one with a great head (smarts) that can over look some small conformational "no-no's". I know first hand - I have a trail gelding who is very similar to your mare; long back, prone to weakness, and some small leg conformational defects. But, he's very smart and does his job extremely well, so he's my baby - as I'm sure she will be to you. :)
