If that's momma behind her then it's technically a hinny.

Male donkey x female horse = mule
Male horse x female donkey = hinny

that's exactly what was stumping me. Would I call her just 'dun' or is she actually not dun but bay- with the donkey genes giving her all of the primitive markings? I'm hoping to show her if I keep her so I'll need to decide on something...I guess whatever donkey color best matches hers would be the best?

Either way, she's cute and I'm glad that she's healthy and appears to have a MUCH more agreeable temperment than either of her parents. That might have something to do with the fact that I've been handling her from day one though.

definitely dun, it is inherited from the donkey, but it's still dun. I called my mule brown dun, she could be the same.

Peppy Barrel Racing I'm pretty sure that's a donkey, not a mule or hinny, adorable though!

He is really adorable, I love how much white he has! Hinnys typically have more horse like ears, and mules have more donkey ears (that's not the only difference, just one of the easier to see). That little guy just looks all donkey! His mama's pretty cute too!

haha, she does look very donkey, doesn't she? The only thing 'horse' I see is her more refined face and her gaits. Thankfully she got the floating trot from her mama!

I'd love to start a thread tracking her growth, but unfortunately I don't have a camera right now. These pictures were taken and given to me by a friend- otherwise I'd have no pictures at all. Hopefully I can get another one soon but I'm not sure xD
