|What do you get when you cross a donkey jack with a horse? (A mule). A horse stallion
with a donkey jennet (a hinny). Aren't all hinnies female and mules male (no!) Are all mules
sterile (for all practical purposes, yes). Aren't donkeys stubborn (nope!) They won't
gallop... (wrong again). Where can you buy a Miniature Donkey?
Are you interested in donkeys, mules or zebra hybrids? Or just want to learn more and help
dispel some of the myths about longeared equines?
If so, you've come to the right place. The American Donkey and Mule Society maintains
informative websites for those interested in the longeared equines - the cousins of the more
well known horse. From Miniature to Mammoth, Mule to Zorse, we have facts, photos, a
catalog of literature, resources, and MUCH more.
There is an EXTRAORDINARY amount of information on this site. Although we've tried to
make the pages as easy as possible to see and read, you'll need to scroll down on some to get
all of the information!
