    I was reading in a color and genetics group that mule and donkey colors are still largely still not understood that well...

    Yes, I think an appaloosa mule, would be an appaloosa mule! A tobiano mule would be a tobiano, they are just spotted if they got their color from the jack.

    I haven't looked into this so don't know how true it is, but I watched a documetary once about mules, and if I remember right it said something along the lines of on the rare occation a mule is fertile (always a female) that it's 50/50 if she'll pass on horse or donkey genes, meaning if bred to a jack there is a 50% chance that the baby will be full donkey! And 50% chance it will be another mule (and therefore most likely infertile).

    Coolio--i thought reguardless of where the color come from a mule with color was always 'spotted'

    Dang I thought it would have the hybrid genetics! Thata been so crazy! Weird that a mule could have a horse baby-- wonder what it would look like? Identical to the mules dam? I wonder if it would be like a clone?
