SIGHT... Bony "eyebrows" protect the mules eyes that are high and toward the sides of their heads. They can see quite well to both sides and reasonably well to the front and rear, especially when their heads are lowered. However, long ears have a narrow 10 degree blind spot directly behind and in front of their bodies when faceing forward, so they see poorly to the front and rear when their heads are raised-all humans should keep this in mind when working around donkeys and mules. By turning, raising or lowering heads, long ears can see more clearly and hone in on specific objects. They have both monocular and binocular vision, meaning their eyes can work together to focus on a single object or independantly to view two things at one time. Like humans, they can instantly change their focus from distant objects to happenings near by. Their sight is motion oriented, so they quickly decern moving objects, even at a great distance. Happy Tuesday...Thank you all for your support, Joey & Betsy
