Thoroughbred Filly Critique -Potential Purchase

I am going to look at a 2 year old TB filly tomorrow. I would like some opinions on her structure. They don't have any current photos, but I will take some tomorrow and update this thread. She is out of a million winning stud. You can see pictures of the Stud and Mare also.

These are foal pics and one cruddy yearling shot. I will take some myself tomorrow.

They only want $200 and to check up on her periodically. Its a great deal for me since I am looking for a clean horse to do hunt seat with and maybe even jumping later on.

She looks great. The only thing I can see is long pasterns, but she may grow into those. A bit concerned about that low price.....Let us know how she is!

I think they are reputable people. They have horses in our schooling program at Middle Tennessee State University and they are very nice. She is ready to start training, so she is not even green, but that is fine with me! Horses are going very cheap around here, but I agree that $200 is a great deal if she is healthy, sound, and sane.

CHECK OUT HEALTH! It is a great deal, but really really make sure to get a vet anyway. I just got a bad deal out of quite a reputable trainer so really be careful and where the price is low enough, get a vet check and her history!
Hope that helps!

And, make sure that even as a yearling and young horse that she is not flighty because naturally, they can be come even more energetic as the approach 3 and 4.

Hopefully her front legs straightened out. They are way under herself or over at the knee??? They actually looked somewhat deformed. Not sure if that is the term. I am guessing that is why the bargain price. If she is really young in the photo like a day or so then they could have straightened out. If she were a few months old I would be concerned

Did they give you any recent pictures? IMO it's pretty rude of her to have put dated photos up.

I noticed her front legs were a bit wonky looking :S

I drove down today to see her in person. He says she will even out as she matures and that she is going through a wonky phase. I think she would look a lot better without the pot belly. She is very sweet temperament wise.

And I might add that her legs look HUGE and her joints look HUGE. I wonder how much more she has to grow?

Here are the pics I snapped today.

She's cute. In that last pic her hind end looks pretty weak, but she's still growing.

Her pasterns do look pretty long
Personally I wouldn't buy her but that's just me.
I don't mean that in a rude way.
