Isn't that a donkey?

I'm interested that this fantastic photo's title identifies the animal as a mule. Isn't it a donkey, or an ass? I don't think it's a mule. Thanks so much for posting this.

Clown with Donkey

I am researching an oil painting I own of a clown & mule painted in 1923
signed Robt. Lindneux. If I can Identify the subject, it may help in validing the artist. I don't see have to add a picture of the painting to this post. Could someone in the family identify Bert Leo in his clown makeup?
