Determining Breed in a Mule

Obviously, he's half donkey, but I'm not sure what breed his other half may be.
Any guesses?
I'm thinking something shorter and stockier.
Maybe quarter horse or mustang.

He's 6 years old, and about 13hh (maybe a little taller).
He's not gaited - normal W/T/C.
He wears a horse size bridle with a 4.5" bit, to give you a better idea of his head proportions.
His number one quirk is that he loathes walking on a lead rope, but will follow perfectly at liberty. Great personality, such a sweetie.

Not the greatest picture, but I'm bored and posting on a whim and this is the best one I happen to have. It's from the day we got him back in the summer.

Oh! Hadn't thought about that!
Maybe so... I'd call that a definite possibility.
They are reasonably common in this area.

He could be a hinny. They are shorter because their dams are donkeys. So he will look more like they donkey than the horse.
