Mules are the offspring of a mare and a donkey.
Mules are strong and resistant to diseases except sleeping sickness.
They are very useful in hilly places, on steep slopes, because they walk very well on difficult paths.
Mules often have a bad character, but if they are trained without harshness, with a lot of patience, they are more obedient.
Mules need the same care and the same food as donkeys.
In some places you find animals called hinnies. A hinny is the offspring of a stallion and a she- donkey.
