Thanks Peach,
They are pretty shy when born,but you can pet her when mom's feeding. I have to give her her shots today so i'll see how it goes.:)

I got to see a couple hours old colt a few years ago. My neighbors were boarding their horses at a stable. They told me about it and I had to go see it too :)

Hey Buster.........

So if her dad is a donkey, and mom is a horse, she is a mule right?? Are mules sterile??? Have mules ever been bred to other mules???

It's an interesting science because dogs can cross breed.......but I guess mules, donkeys and horses are all really different species.........

Yes ,she is a mule,and they are sterile.You have to have horses and donkeys to make mules. If her dad was a horse and mom a donkey she would be a "hinnie". A+ for you peach :)

Just curious, can you tell the difference between a mule and a hinnie?

The hinnies are the oddballs,some people say they are more like a horse,but usually you can't tell them apart. Hinnies may be smaller
because donkeys are usually smaller than horses.I'm no expert,and opinions vary on the subject.

Well my wife finally got around to naming our new mule,her name is Glenda, she is 3 months old now and is a real handful,the combination horse/donkey really makes them spunky. She has a deep chocolate coat
and is growing up fast.She is nibbling at the grass now that we got her away from mom for a while. :)
