Miss Jenny is a dark brown Miniature mule, born in 2003. We think that her mother was a Shetland pony and her father was a Miniature donkey.
Not a lot is known about Miss Jenny's background but, on arrival at The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada farm in early 2007, this little mule was extremely nervous and wary. At the farm where she lived before being moved to our safe haven, Miss Jenny shied away from all human contact. In our experience here at the DSC, if mules are treated roughly in their early years then it is extremely difficult for them to trust human contact thereafter.
Since Miss Jenny has been admitted to the Sanctuary, she has been living amongst our small mule herd. Although the mules can be fractious with one another at times, Miss Jenny has proved to be an exception and she has fit in very smoothly with the group. In particular, she and Molly often graze side by side.
As far as her association with Sanctuary staff is concerned, this little mule is gaining some confidence, albeit very slowly. It will take her a long time to become really comfortable, but that is alright with us because we intend to give her a home for the rest of her life.
