Okay well awhile ago when I was looking at horses I posted a wanted ad on craigslist. Last week I got an email and the people had 3 horses they were selling because there children were out of the house and don't need them I guess. One of the horses who really stuck out at me was a 16 year old paint mare named Lady. He said she responds to both english and western riding. He was asking $950 for her but he said price definitely isnt the issue, he just wants to find her a good home as well as his other horses. Ok so here are the only pictures I have so far. If you can't critique her don't, I just want to know how she looks to you guys. I emailed the guy for more pictures as well.

ETA- I forgot to ad that she is beginner safe as well.

In the first pic she looks a bit underweight (thin neck and thin after her hips) and lacks muscle. Looks to have a kind eye, though. I'd be interested to see what her left front leg actually looks like - it looks crooked in the picture.

Her front leg does look a bit off. And yeah she needs some weight as well :)

Anyone else?

Looks like she's very toed in, but that could be just a pic and mud. She looks nice though. Can you ask them for better shots?

Yeah I emailed them for other pics as well. I think there only an hour from me.

As said before, she needs muscles in her neck, but that can easily change by working her in frame and all.
Besides her neck, she looks to be pretty decent.
It does look like she toes in, her pasturns seem fairly straight to me, though with better pictures, it could all change.

16 is a great age too. She still has plenty years left, though she shouldn't go throw any problems that a younger horse might.

If you like her, I would go over and check her out in person and ride her if you feel comfortable :)

Aw she does have a really kind eye I agree with appylover about the straight pasterns, but I'm not sure if its just the picture. I say go take a look at her in person. Only problem with going to see her though... you may fall in love and want want want!
