Donkey? Or Just Another Jackass?
A *blogger acquaintance had asked me if this were a mule or a donkey, and I got to thinking about it: I really don’t know. So I checked the handy Wikipedia, and here’s the skinny:
- donkey – a domesticated member of the horse family
- mule – the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse
- jackass – a male donkey
So, yeah, you really can’t determine which by this photo!
