Due to health concerns, we will not be breeding miniature donkeys in the future and will just be keeping a few as pets. The remaining donkeys are our favorites and are our best. We are pricing them below market value to find great homes for them. We have enjoyed the great friends that we have made along the way and the wonderful donkeys that we have bred, but now is the time to pass the torch to others. Thank you to all who have supported our breeding program.

Color: Red, Brown & White Spot

Birth Height 19"
D.O.B.: 3-25-14

Sire: MGF Fire and Ice B012, 30" Sorrel & White Spot

Dam: Itsy Bitsy Burro Company Shutterbug, 32" Dark Brown

Sunspot, barn name Sunny, is a stunning, tiny, red and white spotted jack with his father's baby doll head, perfect eyeliner, straight legs, and level top line. We have sold his wonderful father, and were going to keep him as a replacement, but have decided to go down to three jacks. He has a delightful personality and craves attention. He has that hard to find show presence and would do very well in the show ring. His parents have many ribbons between them, so he comes by it honestly. He also has a full five generation pedigree full of well known, small donkeys. On top of all of this, you have his beautiful color. What's not to like?
