Smile Critique Possible Mule Purchase

Good afternoon!

I am looking at buying this 4 year old Molly Mule.

I know that these are not conformation shots, but what do you think of her?

I'd buy her too, but that's just because I love mules!

I think she's very nice looking. A lot of mules end up with cinder block heads and backs as straight as straight gets, but she actually has a fairly decent top line from the looks of it. Should help you fit her for a saddle. Her shoulder is straight as is typical of mules, so she may be a bit short gaited, but really there isn't too much not to like about her. Buy her saddle if you buy her, if at all possible. That will save you some pain when it comes to fitting her for one.

I also like her a lot. She does seem to have an over-developed lower neck, so I wonder if she might tend to star gaze under saddle.

I don't know much about western riding and saddle fitting, but is that saddle placed a bit too far forward?

Have you any pics of her moving? Have you ridden her? I rode a Molly years ago and she was THE best ride.
