Hinny

 

a hybrid between a female ass and a stallion. In appearance, the hinny resembles the horse more than the ass; it is usually smaller than the mule (a hybrid between an ass and a mare) and not as strong. In China, the crossbreeding of large female Shangtung asses with stallions has resulted in large hinnies, which are stronger than Chinese mules. Hinnies, except those raised in China, have almost no economic significance.

hinny

the sterile hybrid offspring of a male horse and a female donkey or ass
