The guy who owned it couldn't sell it because it just looked so odd and a lot of little kids were scared of it, saying it was a devil mule. It was sort of intimidating, it was a very large mule and was actually very friendly but those eyes coming at you in that big body was just to much for most i guess.
Interesting! Can you get albino donkeys?

I'm not sure. That mule sure was strange looking though.

I'm fairly cerain donkeys can be albino, which easily explains the albino mule.

If the mare's eye was brown, she wasn't a double delute. Cremellos have very light skin, but it is not pink like a truely white horse's. And the ones I have known did not burn the way a white horse would.

White boxers are not generally defective, there is a higher incendent of deafness, but not blindness, and most are perfectly fine lovable healthy pets that live normal length lives.

Probably white then? She said it had blue eyes in her first post.
