Re: What I want to know...

Mules are the hybrid animal produced when a male ass (Jack) is crossed with a female horse. The mule is a sterile hybrid, meaning it cannot reproduce. Mules come in both male and female. A tiny percentage of female mules have had foals, but this is considered a freak genetic accident.

Most of the city folk I asked didn't know this, and had to resort to Google to find answers. I'm assuming that you knew this already?

I am the shame of my family!

Both of my parents are from rural Illinois, yet I didn't know this.

Re: What I want to know...

Before I look this up on google... A mule is a cross between a donkey and a horse. The males are called "mules", the females are called "Jennies."

now to check...

Re: What I want to know...

close... but I'm slightly off. a Jenny is a female donkey. Mules are a cross between a Jack (male donkey) and a mare. A hinny is a cross between a jenny and a stallion.

Re: What I want to know...

In theory... In practice, though, I never heard anyone outside mule shows refer to a jenny-stallion cross as a hinny, just as a mule.

Heheh

What's really funny is that the top result (as of now) isn't really dirty at all. Well, it's used for dirty things, but it isn't dirty itself.

I think you were just being hopeful

i remember just reading somewhere like two weeks ago (and i really am too unmotivated to look even a tiny bit for where) that there are occasionally fertile mules. maybe i just made that up though.
