This behavior can sometimes lead to overeating and potential health issues such as obesity or colic. Therefore, the statement that a horse knows when it is full and stops eating is false.

    Correct Answer
    B. Mule
    Explanation
    When a donkey and horse are crossed, a mule is created. Mules are the offspring of a male donkey (jack) and a female horse (mare). They inherit characteristics from both parents, such as the donkey's strength and endurance, and the horse's size and speed. Mules are known for their intelligence and hardiness, making them valuable working animals. They are sterile and cannot breed, which is why they are commonly used as pack animals rather than for reproduction.
