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.

He is throwing dark and sorrel, loudly spotted babies and settles the jennets easily and quickly.
