A burro is a donkey.  Burro is the Mexican word for donkey.
Burro is also the term some use for wild donkey.
A stud donkey is a jack.   A gelded donkey is a john.  A female donkey is a
Jennet.  A female mule is a molly.   An ungelded mule (always sterile) is
called a jack mule.   A gelded mule is called a john mule.  Some molly mules
can actually reproduce but very rarely.  Something about the number of
chromasomes becomes an odd number in the offspring of a horse/donkey cross.
An odd number of chromasomes cannot split evenly thus the zygote cant form.
(may need Heidi's help here)
A jack to a mare is a mule
A stallion to a jennet is called a hinney
A zebra to a horse is called a zorse (still a mule)
A zebra to a donkey is a zonkey (can reproduce)

Where does a "jenny" fit in?
