The Long Ear Division is provided to record the bloodlines of mules and donkeys. This division includes colored and solid mules and donkeys.


The two Long Ear classifications include Mule/Hinny and Donkey.

Long Ear Type

Mule - A hybrid equine resulting from the breeding of a male donkey to a female horse. Mules come in all shapes, sizes and colors depending on the breeding of their horse dam. Mules are versatile animals, taking characteristics from both the donkey and horse.

Donkey - Descended from the African Wild Ass, today’s domesticated donkeys have moved beyond being simple pack animals. Donkeys come in a variety of sizes and are just as versatile as horses and mules, able to be ridden, driven and exhibited in-hand.
