Donkey Spots?
I know horses can have bend or spots and other things like that, but I'm wondering what you would call something like that on a donkey. Here's a pic...note the two chestnut spots on him. IMAGE(http://i427.photobucket.com/albums/pp352/HorsesRAwesum/KCJ/Donkey.jpg) Thanks!

That is interesting, is he

That is interesting, is he actually a donkey or a mule? He looks like a mule to me, so whatever the color, it could of come from his horse parent.

donkey?

I agree with rodeoratdogs, this fella looks more mulish to me...although spotted donkeys do exist (see the gallery), they usually have more color than this guy.

Gosh I'm not sure what they are, I'm surprised somebody else hasn't made a comment yet on him.

Sorry I am slow, I only view

Sorry I am slow, I only view the forums when I'm at the college really... but anyway... Most likely this mule (no doubt this is a mule) is a donkey spotted on a bay base probably, the random spots are just from pattern skewing, since sometimes mules end up completely white with pink skin from donkey spotting. BendOr would probably be much darker on a mule, but remember all patterns skew on mules.
