Something looks very off about her front legs.

I think it's just the way she is standing..... She does look a little upright.

Is this the one you think looks like my mare? I think she does, only a little more solid. She is cute, my mare is super lazy too. We are working on that!

what exactly do you mean by lazy? Is she bored or lazy?

I think she looks solid. Nothing wrong with her front feet, from what I can see. Her back is long, so hard to tuck under with sliding stops. take is easy on her. Three is not fully physically grown. Joints are still maturing. She may not have the personality for gaming . May be a darn nice trail horse, no?
