How high can a horse jump? And what is the difference between a horse and a mule?:confused: Oh, and does anyone know were the most farms are in the US?

Thank you.

depends on the breed of horse, some are jumpers, some not. A mule is a separate animal from a horse, but if you mate a horse with a mule you'll get a donkey. All donkeys being hybreds are sterile

There are farms in all states, the biggest ones would be in the midwest and the big dairy farms are in Wisconsin, the big fruit and vegetable ones in California

I was brought up on a dairy farm. We had over a hundred milking cows, several horses and other animals

I heard it differently in school: horse + donkey = mule.

you are right, I had them reversed .A male horse and a female donkey have a hinny. A female horse and a male donkey have a mule. But hinnies and mules can't reproduce, . They are sterile Most all hybreds are sterile.

that is true a female horse and stallion donkey produces a mule
a zebra crossed with a horse is a Zorse and an zebra crossed with a donkey is a Zonkey

some horses can jump 5' or more this takes a special horse and rider
