5. Hinny




The Hinny is a cross between a horse and a donkey. The Hinny is sterile like mules and can be difficult to tell apart sometimes. Some look more like horses others more like donkeys. A hinny is more difficult to obtain because of chromosomes unable to match up. Donkeys have fewer gene pairs than a horse so with a lower number in the female donkey jennet, conception is less likely.
