Donkey and Hinny tails

Posted by PrimRose on June 13, 2017 at 6:05 AM

An important difference between donkeys and mules/hinnies are their tails. A donkey, as in the first photo, has a shorter tail. This is Jenny she is about 5 years old and was a guard on a sheep farm before coming to the sanctuary. She has become good friends with Evelyn, donkey.

The second photo is Gordon, a hinny, his tail resembles a horse tail: much longer. A hinny has a donkey for a mother and a horse for a father. Gordon is good friends with Wilson who is a mule. Wilson had a donkey for a father and a horse for a mother. Both hinnies and mules are born sterile and can't reproduce.
