Subject: Mule coloring/training

Two weeks ago I purchased my first mule! Jasper is a 16 month old john with a curious and friendly nature. He appears to have suffered some mishandling in his brief past so he is not as trusting of humans as I would like. He seems to be getting acclimated to his new environment and is not as shy as he was several weeks ago.
My questions are as follows: #1. I have used round pen/resistance-free training with my horses. Jasper seems to be responding fairly well to these techniques. Is this an appropriate method to use with him? and #2. What color is he? My vet had difficulty describing him in his records. He is a sorrel color on his body with some roaning and one frosty patch on his flank. He has definite dorsal and shoulder stripes. His legs are a combination of his base color with splashes of white, black markings, and brindle patches with cross stripes. Any clues on his possible heritage or any suggestions on other resouces that might know? Regardless, I AM in love with this unique, lovable critter and am proud to join the ranks of the mule-endowed.
