At Hells Canyon Mule Days, a few years back, a 34 yr old mule won the jumping comp! And the mule wasn't even that leggy.
I do believe that same mule later pulled a buggy and won that comp. Too!

My family has mules. One is a Hinny. Can't tell the difference. My parents use their mules mainly for trails and hunting, but can hold their own in the Mule competitions. My Dad got a team penning buckle after her ran the Musical Mules race. Mules can do anything~ heart for days.

I love the name 'Hinny' In my dialect (I'm originally from the North East of England) Hinny means 'beloved' or 'darling' or 'honey'. My late grandmother came from Gateshead and always called me 'Hinny'. Got a lump in my throat now. I bet you tell me a hinny is something bad...LOL

Haha, not at all! Hinnies are also a mix between a horse and donkey, but the difference is that a mule is the mix between a male donkey and a female horse, and the hinny is a mix between a male horse and a female donkey. Some believe that they have different personalities and that they take after different parents, but there isnt really any scientific proof on that.
