Everything you described just puts up red flags all over the place. I'd have a PPE done and have the vet verify her rough age just to see. This horse sounds like it needs a lot of work, time and money. There are much better horses out there, check, check and check some more. You might look into your local rescues as well. Shoes, not to mention "special" shoes cost a lot and take attention.
