Possible Buy

So I'm kinda looking for a baby...

I found this one, very cute, but the first picture of her concerns me...I can't figure out if she looks funky because she's at a funky position and angle, or if she really IS funky.

What do you guys think? I emailed in hopes of getting confo shots.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I would pass. Proper conformation pics aren't provided of the sire or the dam, and the granddam has a saddle on, which makes it impossible to see her back. Her breeding is pretty nice, so it might be worth looking at some proper pictures before you decide to move on.

I think she looks funky and over priced

Definitely over priced. Her legs looks fairly straight, but she already has a very sharp slope to her croup instead of nice, rounded hindquarters and you can't tell much more. Seems to me these people are selling bloodlines alone, and there's no telling without the actual pedigree of the filly to view, exactly how far back these famous names in her line are.
