Horseshoe Pond question

One of my wife's cousins is looking at a property for sale on Horseshoe Pond (it connects to the Deer River Flow) and asked me what I know about the summer water condition or recreation quality of the pond. I couldn't say; have never paddled it. Yet I know it is a small and shallow pond, and is probably "nutrient rich" due to septic leakage. I suspect it must get fairly clogged with milfoil in July and August. Does anyone here know?

Thanks.

I've paddled Deer River Flow and it does get thick with vegetation but there is always a channel open. I have driven by Horseshoe in the summer and I remember it being open somewhat but there were plenty of lily pads. It is still a nice area and the pike fishing is pretty good.
