I believe that she IS slightly over at the knee. I didnt see the first set of pics, just these and looked at them before I read what you had typed. My first thought was that she's slightly over at the knee.

That said, that doesnt mean she is going to be a horrible horse. We have a 17yo h/j at the barn who had a successful career in children's hunters and children's jumpers, and is over at the knee (not horribly, but its there).

All depends what you want to do with her. you wont be able to do conformation stuff, but if that doesnt matter, then.......

No I have not bought her as the lady is not returning my emails after I told her that I thought that she was over at the knee. I have another horse comming here today in about a half hour. She is a rescue case. 5 yr old 15.1 registered thoroughbred... ill send pictures after she gets here. She has rain rot so she wont be beautiful but she needs help

Well, I don't mean to sound like a grumpy old cow, but I wouldn't buy her now because of this.
A good, reptuable breeder should be able to admit their horses faults while also their excellent traits.
I've got one mare that's over the knee as well (she's only a year, so I'm hoping she'll grow out of it some) but if she doesn't, oh well! She's never going anywhere, and I love her to peices.
However, if I were to sell her I'd say "Yeah, she's over at the knee. But she's sound, lovable, and can still make a great trail or pleasure horse."
I wouldn't ignore the potential buyer because he 'insulted' my horse.

While I love the horse world, some of the dealing, sniveling, b*tchy people I could definately do without.

Best of luck with your new rescue! :)
