Kinda dumb Donkey question...

Just wondering the different "sexes" of donkeys I suppose. I know Jennys are the females and Jacks are the boys but arent Johns the boys too? I know...dumb question but I googled "Different sexes of Donkeys" and got some....BAD THINGS!

Ya, if you could just clue me in, that would be great...

Johns are boy mules. Mollys are girl mules.

And as far as I've seen, hinnys are called Johns and Mollys too

Okay then..Jennys and Jacks..but is there a different "term" for a cut "jack" or are all boy donkeys jacks and it doesnt matter if they are cut or not?

I think Jack's are intact males and John's are gelded males. Similar to a stallion and a gelding.

As far as I know, Jack's are intacted males & John's are gelded. But I could be wrong

A gelded donkey is called a gelding donkey :) A John is a gelded mule (also referred to as a horse mule).
