Origin of Mudbray

Mudbray is likely based off of the Somali wild ass, the wild ancestor to the domestic donkey. Beyond its resemblance to a donkey (long ears, thin body and erect mane), Mudbray's nearly-extinct status is similar to the Somali wild ass, a critically endangered animal. - Nintendo101 (talk) 00:57, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Name origin

Mudbray’s Japanese name “Dorobanko” comes from “doro (泥)” – the japanese name for mud – and “banko” – rustic Japanese goods made from clay. It’s also similar to “burro”, the Spanish word for donkey. “Mudbray” itself is a combination of “mud” and “bray” – the cry of a donkey. If anyone seems to agree with me or has additional suggestions, feel free to bring them up!- Nintendo101 (talk) 01:06, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Poitou donkey

It seems to me that Mudbray and Mudsdale might be partially based on the Poitou donkey. It's special hair looks a lot like Mudsdale's braids and Mudbray is a donkey Mangaman13 (talk) 02:23, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
