Carrie the hinny


Carrie is a small dark brown hinny, born on May 14, 2017. Carrie is one of two hinnies currently residing at the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC). A hinny has a donkey mother and a horse father, opposite to a mule, that has a horse mother and a donkey father.

Before coming to the DSC, Carrie and her mom Chloe lived on a farm in Western Ontario. When the farm was sold, the new owner decided to keep all the animals as well, but they soon realized that they did not have the time to give Carrie and Chloe the needed training, attention and care. The DSC was contacted to see if we could provide the hinny and donkey with a forever home. Carrie and Chloe arrive in the early fall of 2018.

Carrie is a very curious and sweet girl with a little bit of a sassy side. Carrie has adjusted well to her new life at the Sanctuary. After being weaned from her mom she was integrated into one of our mule herds and is slowly finding her place in it. She has bonded with another new mule, Ted, who arrived approximately the same time Carrie arrived.
