Animal Spotlight | Mollie
Today, on the blog, we wanted to spotlight one of our most famous animals on our property: Mollie the mule!
Mollie is very friendly and loves to get her picture taken. She loves being pet and fed, by all of The Amish Village visitors, and always has her head out of his stall to say “Hello” to everyone who visits. Her stall is located right inside of our animal barn so he cannot be missed.
Below we wanted to share some fun facts about Mules:
- Mules are an offspring of a male donkey and a female horse.
- Mules are hybrid, which means they cannot reproduce.
- A mule’s average lifespan is between 15-30 years.
- Mules typically weigh between 771-992 pounds.
- Special features include having long snouts, long ears, and stocky bodies.
- On an Amish farm, Mules are used to harvest hay and other crops.
On your next trip to The Amish Village be sure to say hello to Mollie and get a family picture with her! She loves kids, families, and people of all ages!
