STODDARD-that is sooo true!! A jack will breed any mare he can reach. A stallion however is more picky, and a lot harder to get to breed a donkey. Plus donkeys are generally smaller, so you can imagine how much harder it would be for a stallion to breed one.

If it's not half ass, it's just a horse!

I have heard the older farmers refer to a male mule (gelded or not) as a
"horse mule".

I knew what Jacks and Jennies were. :P I didn't understand how it technically made it a different animal, though. I guess in the long run, there really isn't. But I don't get how the size tends to be different for each. Hm..

I think that there are minis, standards, and mammoths. I don't know where you draw the line.

Celeste-it depends on the breed registry. I have a mammoth and a large standard. Now all I need is a mini!
