Can someone please explain why one du mutates and not the other?

Because ci is grammatically masculine but dafad is feminine.

Adjectives lenite after feminine singular nouns.

So you would also have, for example, cath ddu since cath is also feminine, but ceffyl du (black horse) since ceffyl is also masculine.
