Two Hinnies Found in Iowa – Abandoned Because of Economical Woes?

October 28, 2008 / No Comments

I don’t know if this is spelled right or wrong but it looks to me like somebody lost their backside. Not so. A hinny is a cross between a stallion and a female donkey. Two of them were found at a golf course in Primghar, Iowa.

The sheriff’s office is looking for the owner of the two unusual four-legged creatures found wandering around. The deputy’s offices corralled the pair and took them a city pasture. But, nobody is claiming the hinnies. It’s believed that the animals were abandoned because of tough financial times.

Truthfully, am I the only one who has never heard of a hinny? I wonder, what other cross-breed animals there are that I haven’t heard of. Teach me, please. Ligers…and, well, I can’t think of others.

It’s good to know the maker has a sense of humor, isn’t it? What was it Spielberg said, “Life will find a way.” A way to make us laugh, eh?
