Molly is a little gray hinny who was born in 1988 and then brought to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada farm in 1993. A hinny is a hybrid equine, like a mule. Molly’s mother was a Miniature donkey and her father was a small horse.
Nothing is known of Molly’s first five years. Although very gentle when she is relaxed, Molly has always been wary of human contact. This suggests a degree of mistreatment in her early years. On a day-to-day basis, Molly prefers the company of the other mules at the DSC. They are content to roam the fields together, grazing and moving about constantly.
In spite of her hesitation with people, Molly does enjoy being groomed. So long as she is approached quietly and spoken to softly, Molly will stand still and allow her coat to be brushed.
At the Sanctuary farm we provide a lifelong home to donkeys, mules and hinnies like Molly, creatures that have nowhere else to go except to a slaughterhouse. At the DSC, they can live out their lives in a natural environment, here for everyone to enjoy.
