TB Mare- Possible purchase

I am so disappointed. The chestnut NSH gelding I was looking to get did not work out Sometimes owners ruin things for their own horse. I don't want to talk slander, but basically the owner ruined it for me

I've been horse shopping non stop since. I'm on the rebound I guess! UGH!

Anyway, here is a mare that I like. Eventing prospect.
She would be a bit of a project, as she hasn't been ridden much, but at least she is started. She is 8.

"Gem is a 16hand mare. Well built and a very nice mover. Very easy keeper for a TB. Approved for breeding with Oldenburg NA. Foaled a lovely Oldenburg colt this year and was a great first time mother. I am selling her as a broodmare due to time constraints. I do not have the time to put her under saddle this spring. She has dressage basics but has not been ridden consistantly since before she foaled. Would be a lovely hunter/dressage mount. Very sweet/mannered from the ground-a pleasure to work with. Price negotiable. Pic/video available" They're asking $1,000 OBO

Also, can someone please give me the lowdown on the Oldenburg thing? I don't know much about all that inspection stuff :p What does it even mean?

Looks like she has decent movement; Baby is too cute!!

So, yay or nay?
Thanks :)

Her front legs look a bit light in bone, but she is pretty. She is a bit over condidtioned in these photos, but is very pretty. Her knees are a bit high for my tastes and when you look at her HOPEFULLY she will be barefoot and you can see how much foot she has and how thin her hoof walls are. Some Thoroughbreds that are as fine as this one can have VERY thin hoof walls and be prone to shoeing issues, keeping shoes on and stone bruises. The adage "no foot, No Horse" applies always. Other than that she is very nicely put together and I can see why she would be bred to a warm blood.

Oldeneburg means she was inspected by a Breed Inspector and considered good enough for breeding to produce Oldenburg Sport Horses. Foals from her would be inspected (sort of like a show) and judged and if rated "premium" branded with the Oldenburg symbol and entered in the registry. I bred my Thoroughbred years ago to a Hannoverian and she produced a foal that was given the premium rating and branded Oldenburg.

Wow. She is just lovely... very feminine looking and pretty. The one thing that I notice about her is how kind her eye is... she looks curious and ready, but at the same time... like she'll take good care of her rider. I like that in a horse.

Yes. The owner said she is probably one of the only TBs that could afford to lose some lbs. Lol but I'm sure with some excersize I can whip her into shape :)

ETA: I decided to set up a time to see her :) So hopefully monday, or perhaps the following weekend!

This mare is OTT, and baby is by Manhattan (Avalon Equine)

I could not get enough straight movement in the video to make a good evaluation and none of the photos are good for critiqueing.
In the video her hind leg (right , I think) moved kind of odd, the white one. Her canter was kind of a pronk and I wasen't sure if I saw something funky about it. Don't you hate it when people are vague like that? I am sorry I could't be more specific. If there was a better video with some good trots it would be better to see if there really is anything there or not.
