I'm almost tempted to ask both of his owners (he's co-owned) if I could purchase him later down the road. I believe he's around 14 years old and hasn't had much done with him. I'd honestly love to use him for my sisters and cousins since he's such a good boy.
Hinnys look kinda wierd, like really pudgy ponies with funny ears. They have more horselike heads and ears. Their awkward conformation makes them not good for competitive riding, which mules seem to preform just as good, if not better sometimes, than a horse. But I would imagine they would be just as good as anything for things like driving, packing, and livestock guarding.
There's also something with uneven chromosomes that makes breeding for hinnies less productive than breeding for a mule. So you're chances for breeding a hinny are slim compared to a mule.
A henny is a mule that has a jenny for a mother and a stallion for a father and they are generally smaller in size. But they are still considered a mule. It goes like this: A jack is an uncut male donkey. A jenny is a female donkey. A mule is a cross between a donkey and a horse. It doesn't matter which one is mom and which one is dad, it is still a donkey. However a henny is donkey mom, horse dad. A john is a gelded male mule, and a molly is a female mule. And mules are awesome.
