Donkeys For Sale


Ask about our Layaway Plan

Spring is here, and we are in excitement overload with anticipation of foaling season!  As most of you know, we haven't bred more than three/four jennys for several years due to our 2011 Texas drought and the economy, but this year, we stepped out of our safety net and bred several ...................... This spring, we have four red girls bred to Zydeco due to foal in April, and our Czar girl (Annabelle who is a true black) is bred to DJ (red) for a May foal, plus we are expecting another bunch (six) of lawn ornaments out of Ziggy (28 1/2") and his little jenny group!  Then in the spring, we have five red girls and one black bred to Andi (30 1/2" red) who belongs to a good friend of ours in TN.  These six little jennys are all maiden jennys out of our breeding program, and I can hardly wait!  Along with these pasture breedings, we have a few 'planned pregnancies' using DJ, Czar, Red Alert and even a couple out of Wally.  In addition, we have our fingers crossed that Aviator (26 1/2" dark brown who is owned by Wayne and Cora) has settled three or four of our maiden jennys!  Boys or girls, we don't have a preference; we are just looking for healthy babies and moms!

"PoPo ......... did you really, really say
that we can't keep them all?"

                                           "I'll go ask Momo!"



We are committed to finding the best home for each and every donkey that we offer for sale.  Our little donks have terrific conformation and their  personalities can't be beat; they are affectionate, in good health, very social and "love to be loved."

Some have asked if the donkeys that we are currently showing are for sale, and the answer is 'yes' they are, but we only accept a deposit, not payment in full until after show season!  Reason being, it takes so much time to select, condition and train donkeys for the show ring, and it's so hard to start a new one in the middle of the season.  With a deposit on a particular donkey, all we ask is that you sit back and enjoy the shows; we will continue to show 'your' donkey at our expense until show season is over in the fall!   

All of our donkeys are on schedules for vaccinations and worming; our farrier visits the farm on a regular basis for hoof care. 

Donkeys are herd animals; to avoid undue stress and loneliness and to help ensure a happy, healthy little donkey, it is strongly recommended that they not be kept singly but with another animal, preferably a miniature donkey, as a life-long friend. 

Our goal is to make your ownership experience positive and pleasurable and to ensure that our donkeys are placed in an environment where they will be well cared for, protected, enjoyed and most of all treasured! 



If you are looking for something in particular, please don't hesitate to contact us at
or 936-396-6377; we are continuing to downsize our herd in preparation for retirement (or as Harv says 'old age')
and have several donkeys available that aren't yet on our website, and we sell some of them before I get pictures posted!


Sunset Acres Russian Czar



DOB:  03/13/01
   Color:  black NLP
   Sire:   Circle C Black Russian
        Grand Sire:  Red Lightning
   Dam:  R&D D&H Molly
       Grand Sire:   Hartman Donkeys Trenton

What a great asset Czar would be to an established breeding program or to one just getting off the ground!  He has a wonderful, laid-back disposition; treats his ladies with dignity and produces outstanding babies. His pedigree carries black, red and spots, and that's exactly what he has produced for us ............... blacks, reds and spots! We purchased Czar from Frank and Mary Williams (Short & Sweet Donkey Ranch here in Texas) when they retired several years back; he was an asset to their breeding program and did the same great job for us.

We are into our second year of downsizing, and this year, we will be offering donkeys from our breeding program. As many of you know, we are primarily breeding and going with the redheads in the show ring, and that doesn't leave Czar enough girlfriends, and he's just too good to sit on a shelf and grow old.  So we have made the difficult decision to offer him to another breeding program where he would have girls to call his own. A good donkey home is a must; he loves his girls, but he loves his butt scratches too!

* SOLD *

Czar has moved to Pine Valley Farm in Colorado
where Ronnie has a collection of several black/white spotted jennys
just waiting to meet him!

  Sire:  Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
          28 1/2" - gray/white spot

     Grand Sire:  My World Red Alert
          31 1/2" - dark red

     Grand Dam:  Hiview's Sweet Charlie
          30" - brown/gray/white spotted

Outstanding!  If you are looking for quality small genetics, here's  your future herdsire .............. he's small and very correct;
he has it all in one compact little package and reminds me so much of his dad, Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock! 

As a baby, Zig N. Along had some traits of being wooly, although there are no wooly bloodlines in his pedigree that we know of, his hair coat was longer/silkier than most babies, and his mane laid over much like a horse!  Would he produce wooly babies if bred to a wooly jenny?  Maybe/maybe not, but one thing for sure, this little chunk is going to make someone an outstanding herdsire! 

* SOLD *

and making his new home in Nevada!



Hickory Hills Charlie Brown


DOB:  11/03/13
 Birth Height:  18 1/2"
 Current Height:  27 1/4"
 Color:  brown
 Sire: Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
       28 1/2" - gray/white spotted
 Dam: Hauenstein's Lil Miss Debutante
       30" - brown/gray/white spotted

Don't let his small size and laid back personality fool you!  Charlie Brown is very independent and secure with himself!  He's definitely not the biggest, but that doesn't scare him; he considers himself 'one of the boys!'  Charlie has good straight legs, nice round him and a pretty little head; very proportional.  We think he is definitely herdsire material!  In addition to his conformation and disposition, he is out of two spots and could very well produce spotted babies when bred to spotted jennys! 

* SOLD *

We gelded Charlie Brown
and he is making his new home in Arizona as Becki's lawn ornament!




Hickory Hills Pink Floyd

This quick updated picture was taken March 2014;
I'll post another one when we get him clipped!  He's a nice compact little guy!


DOB:  05/16/12
Birth Height:  19 1/4"
Current Height:  28 1/2"
(April 2014)


Sire:  Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
           28 1/2" - gray/white spot
   Grand Sire:  My World Red Alert
       31 1/2" - dark red
   Grand Dam:  TRR's Contessa
       31 1/2" - gray/white spotted


Dam:  Bar 3S Baby Ruth
            30" - dark gray-dun
   Grand Sire:  Bar 3S Red Tator Tot
       30" - red
   Grand Dam:  Boone's Little Trinket
       32" - gray-dun

Are you looking for a small bundle of red to compliment your breeding herd genetics?  Take a long look
at Pink Floyd!  He's small and straight and all boy!  He came into this world brave, bold and independent
and kept his mom super busy just trying to keep up with him!  Now that he is almost two years old
and maturing, he is mainly interested in talking to the girls instead of running from them!  Again, the
only reason that we are offering Pink Floyd to another breeding home is because we have his sire and
three other sorrel breeding jacks and just don't have room for another with basically duplicate bloodlines!

* SOLD *

Pink Floyd has been gelded
and is making his new home in Natchitoches, Louisiana



Hickory Hills Pinkston Gem


DOB:  05/02/13
 Birth Height:  19"
 Current Height: 29 1/2"
 Color:  light sorrel
 Sire: My World Red Alert
       31 1/2" - dark red
 Dam: Asspirin Acres Pink Champagne
       32" - light red

 If you are looking for a super young red jack, we have one available!  This little guy has outstanding conformation,
is quiet and mild-mannered and would be an asset to any breeding program, especially one breeding for sorrels! 

* SOLD *

Pinkston Gem has been sold and will be
starting his breeding career in Colorado this spring!



Mature Small Jack
Will breed both mares and jennys!

Hickory Hills Earle Gray

DOB:  03/24/08
 Birth Height:  19"
 Current Height:  28 1/2"
 Color:  dark gray-dun
 Sire: Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
       28 1/2" - gray/white spotted
 Dam: Hauenstein's Lil Miss Debutante
       30" - brown/gray/white spotted

Earle was small/correct and just too good to geld when he matured, so he has been 'on loan' to a very good friend of ours who manages the quarantine facility here in Texas.  Sheri rescued a small herd of miniature jennys that could no longer be cared for by their owner due to his wife's declining health and borrowed Earle because of his size and laid-back disposition to run in a pasture with these jennys!  Let's just say 'Earle was definitely king of his castle!'

Later on, Sheri put Earle in with several of her miniature mares, and Earle immediately went about taking care of business!  He doesn't care if they are redheads, blonds or brunettes ............... mares or jennys; Earle 'gets the job done!'

* SOLD *

Earle Gray has been sold and will be
breeding both jennys and mares in Colorado this spring!




BFF Package
Sadie & Coco Kiss
* SOLD *

These two little ones will be making their new home in Arizona!

These two little jennys are like two peas in a pod ............. where you see one, you see the other! 
They grew up in the nursery together and picked each other as their BFF!  If you are looking for cute, here they are!



DOB:  06/02/12
Color:  brown/white spotted
Birth Height: 20 1/2"

Sire:  Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
28 1/2" - gray/white spotted
Dam:  Hickory Hills Silver Slipper
33"- gray-dun

Sadie is a delightful little jenny; she has a wonderful laid-back disposition and is full of life.
In addition to her very social personality, she has good legs, nice round hip and a cute little head!  Sadie would be an asset to any herd when she grows up and matures!  Until that time, she would be happy running and playing with her BFF, Coco Kiss!

I just had to get a picture of Sadie's face
and her beauty freckles!



Coco Kiss

DOB:  07/16/12
Color:  brown
Birth Height:  20"

Sire:  GP Oscar's Lonestar Luke
29" - gray/white spotted
Dam:  Bar 3S Mary Alice
32" - gray/white spotted

O.K.  I do have to admit it when I say we had to take a double look when we saw Coco Kiss running around with Mary Alice ....... this just proves that book genetics doesn't always follow through in the pasture!  Both sire/dam are gray/white spotted, but little Coco is definitely a medium 'cocoa' brown, and there's not one single spot to be seen!  Coco Kiss is truly as sweet as sugar, hence her name!  Actually, her mom, Mary Alice, belonged to my dear friend Marcie who lost her battle with melanoma cancer just four months before Coco was born, so when she was born, I sent Marcie's daughter a picture of the foal, and Cindy named her; I think Marcie would approve because as I remember, Hershey Kisses were one of her favorites!







Here's four young geldings ................ they were gelded the end of March and have fully recovered! 
They are all social and friendly as we visit with them in their pasture daily; geldings make excellent
family pets!  Like all of our animals, these guys are up-to-date on vaccinations, worming and hoof trims!

We don't sell single/only child donkeys unless there is another equine (preferably another miniature donkey)
at their new home. Donkeys are herd animals, and without a BFF, they get lonely and aren't happy campers! 


DOB:  05/22/12
Color: brown/white spotted

 Sire:  Sunset Acres
            Russian Czar
        31" - black NLP
 Dam:  Pigtail Farms Dixie
        32 1/2"
        brown/white spotted

* SOLD *

And now living in Bluff Dale, Texas
with his new best friend, Lil' Bit, a donkey that the family rescued out of a bad situation!  Because of Robertson's wonderful laid-back disposition, he has been a security blanket for Lil' Bit
who is already learning to trust; they
run and play together every day/all day!





Downtown Brown
(and his buddy, Robertson)

DOB:  05/19/12
Color: brown

 Sire: Small Pleasures Zydeco
       31" - red
 Dam: Circle C Serenade
       32" - gray-dun


Downtown's buddy, Robertson, has moved to his new home, but DT is quickly becoming close friends with Five O'Clock Shadow.  Downtown is very social and friendly and meets us at the gate; he is a good BFF for Five O'Clock who is a little bit shy in the gelding group!

* SOLD *

Going to his new home here in Texas with his good friend, Raisin; their new family has three little boys to keep them busy!




Five O'Clock Shadow

DOB:  03/02/12
Color: black

 Sire:  Sunset Acres
             Russian Czar
        31" - black NLP
 Dam:  758's Peppermint
        33 1/2" - red


Five O'Clock is the smallest and the most shy of our geldings, but Peanut, the older and wiser of the bunch, took him under his guide, and Five O is quickly learned that donkey hugs and butt scratches are a good thing ............... and yes, he was born at 5:00 p.m. :)

We held Five O back to help wean our youngest little guy, Smoke-um, and now they have become best of friends, so we are going to offer the two of them together for $1000.

Fudge Fox

DOB:  03/29/12
Color: red

 Sire:  LN Dark Fox
        31 1/4" - black
 Dam:  Bar 3S Spanish Rose
        31" - red


* SOLD *

Fudge went to his new home in Stephenville, Texas together with Rudy, a little spotted guy that was a bit younger, but loved running and playing with the older boys!









Little Geldings Make the Best Ever Family Pets!

We also have two yearling boys that have been gelded and are now ready for their new home!  They were born two weeks apart and grew up in the nursery together - Harley was born the middle of March, and Rocky the first of April!  They are both social and friendly and love to run
and play together and with the older boys! 

For sale together as BFFs!

* SOLD *

Harley and his best friend, Rocky, are now living in their new home in Corpus Christi, TX with the Atkinson family! 
We have no worries that they are receiving daily donkey hugs and butt scratches!

Rocky (left) and Harley on the right!
Had to take this picture super fast as they were coming to get a quick brushing and a donkey hug!  


                                          Harley and Mom                 Rocky and Mom


These two little boys will provide hours of fun and entertainment; they are full of energy and love to run and play, but they still have time to stop for a donkey hug!









DOB: 03/18/13
Color:  gray/brown w/'garters' (stripes) on his legs
Sire:  Green Acres Smokey Star
       30" - dark smokey gray
Dam:  Triple J Ranch Anna
       33" - dark brown

Harley is a super little guy; good straight legs, nice round butt and a disposition that can't be beat!  His sire was the first donkey that we ever took to the show ring, and his mom is absolutely one of the most friendly brood jennys that we have; she will 'back a mile' for a butt scratch!  Harley's disposition is the same; he loves to run and play, but will always stop for a donkey hug!


DOB: 04/09/13
Color:  brown
Sire:  Brayers Are Us Tangueray Gin
        31" - black/dark brown
Dam:  JCP's Josephine
        32" - brown

Rock's registered name is actually Cap Rock Gin (all little boys sired by Tangueray have a gin name), but around the farm, he's always been Rocky!  His mom is very protective of her babies, but growing up in the nursery with Harley, he quickly learned how much fun it is to get hugs and butt scratches!

Of all the boys, these two would do better going to the same new home together!  They have always been together ........ born three weeks apart, grew up together in the nursery, weaned together and gelded together!  Most of the time little geldings will quickly adjust to new friends, but Harley and Rocky are very close and I think it might take them several weeks to accept a new friend; they truly are BFF's!


Three BFFs; available to a new home together!

We would love to sell these three little girls to the same new donkey home!  They are always
together; side by side in the pasture!  They were all babies in the nursery out of three of my favorite
older jennys, and when it came time to wean them, we waited for the youngest one to be six
months old, and then we weaned them together! 

They are now wonderful coming three-year-old jennys who are super friendly and very social.  Each of
the three carries a totally different bloodline, so next fall when they are mature/old enough to breed,
each would contribute to your breeding program individually, but until that time, what fun it would be
to just sit back and watch them be teenage girls .............. together! 

* SOLD *

These three little gals are going to be making their new home together in Yoakum,Texas,
and there's a handsome little jack named Gus just waiting for them to arrive!

Barbara Jean
 DOB:  04/23/11

 Sire: Brayers Are Us Tangueray Gin

 Dam: Thomas Farms Itsy Bitsy
       32 1/2" gray/white spotted


 DOB:  May 10, 2011
 Color:  very dark brown

 Sire: LN Stuart Little B
       29 1/2" black w/cross
 Dam: Country Place Rockette
       33 1/2" dark brown

 Dam: PMF Daisy
       34 1/2" dark brown w/roaning


Breeding Program Reduction

In addition to experiencing several years of drought and pasture fires and increased hay prices here in Texas, old age is gaining
on us, and we need to start planning for those days when we are no longer able to maintain our breeding program!  We are definitely going to do our best to 'hang in' for several more years, but we have made the decision that we will finish up in the
show ring with the redheads!  This means that we now have several black, spotted, brown and gray mature brood jennys and jacks that we won't be breeding. They would make fantastic additions to any herd looking to add bloodlines and pedigrees to their existing stock or the perfect way for someone who is just getting into miniature donkeys to get started! 

We have been putting our breeding program together for thirteen years, and these jennys and jacks have all done a super job
of producing nice quality/healthy babies for us.  While mature, they still have many years of breeding ahead of them.  They are all in good health (up-to-date on vaccinations, worming and hoof trims)!  In addition to being an asset to your breeding program, the jennys would all make excellent family pets!  And if the right pet home presents itself, we wouldn't be opposed to gelding the jacks and offering them as pets also!  We do not sell jacks (young or mature) as family pets!


Available Mature Gelding

Raisin' Cane

 DOB:  10/14/08
 Sex:  Gelding
 Color:  gray-dun NLP
 Sire:  Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
        28 1/2" - gray/white spotted
 Dam:  Happy Acres Priscilla
        34" - gray-dun

Raisin belongs to a good friend of ours, but loves to run and play with our boys.  He has a laid-back disposition and never meets a stranger; he loves people, but also loves to 'just be a boy!'  He is 'best buddies' with everyone! 

* SOLD *

Going to his new home here in Texas with his good friend, Downtown Brown; their new family has three little boys to keep them busy!

Mature Barren Jennys

We have four jennys that we have been unable to settled; we've had them with several different jacks, and still, no babies. 
I don't give up easy, and I'm not giving up now, but our hay situation requires that we place these girls in good donkey homes as pets!  They are super friendly/social, up-to-date on vaccinations, worming and hoof trims; Imogene is a National Halter Champion. 

Most of the time they live in the brood jenny pasture, but they have all four been exposed to a jack and could 'possibly' be bred, but we don't think so.  In any case, if they do prove me wrong, and you need a breeding certificate, no problem!  I will just kick myself because I gave up on them too quick!  Our loss will definitely be your gain! 

We are selling them at BFF (best friends forever) prices - or if you have enough room for all four together
(they would love that, and we would too), we would offer them as a group!





DOB:  1998
Color:  dark brown
Height:  33”

  Asai has had a couple of babies for us and was a good mother, but after her last foal, we haven’t been able to settle her again. 

She is friendly and was  a big help making Sassy (also listed with this group) feel secure in our herd when she first arrived.  I'm guessing because Asai had raised babies, she was able to
take on the mother role with Sassy!

Asai showed signs of being in season early this spring, and we immediately cross our fingers and put her in with Smoke; so far .... so good! 

She raised delightful foals in her younger years, and we are hoping that Smoke was able to whisper sweet things in her ear and get her safely in foal again!



DOB:  1998
Color:  dark brown
Height:  32”

Imogene is a one-of-a-kind donkey; she is absolutely gorgeous ............ and did a fantastic job for us in the show ring, but she just didn't like being away from home and her friends.  She is happiest in the brood jenny pasture talking to the girls!

Imogene has also been a tremendous help in
making Sassy feel feel
like one of the girls!


* SOLD *

And making her new home in Sealy, Texas
with her BFF Sassy!




DOB:  1999
Color:  brown
Height:  34”

Sassy is a wonderful jennet, but because she
was mistreated by a previous owner, it does
take her a bit to warm up and feel secure in a new environment.

A very good friend of ours rescued Sassy as a yearling jenny, and when Betty's health began to decline, she worried and stressed about Sassy because no one would want her as she wasn't as bubbly as the other donkeys, so I promised if she ever got in a position that she could no longer take care of Sassy, I would. 

Sassy has been with us for about five years,
and I think now she would do fine in a new home, especially with one or two of her close girlfriends!


* SOLD *

And making her new home in Sealy, Texas
with her BFF Imogene!

DOB:  2006
Color:  brown
Height:  33”

Ivy is the youngest of the group; if you look closely at her forehead, you will see a few white hairs that I call her ‘beauty mark!’  We purchased her three years ago, and our jacks haven’t been able successful getting her to conceive.  Ivy is very friendly and loves people, and I think she would do well as a therapy/teaching donkey or perhaps a nursing home ambassador!

Ivy regularly shows signs of being in season, but her cycles have never been strong enough to successfully conceive, but early last spring, just for the fun of it, we decided to let her visit with Smoke and a group of jennys in a small breeding pasture for several months ....... wouldn't it be great if Smoke was able
to get her safely in foal?


* SOLD *

And making her new home in Buffalo, Texas
with her BFF Celeste!





Refund Policy - Circumstances change, and occasionally a buyer will reserve a specific donkey(s), send a deposit check or even pay for the animals in full, only to find out they are no longer able to complete their purchase!  No problem; we totally understand and will cooperate to the best of our ability to 'make it right!'  Deposits are non-refundable; in addition, any special/specific vaccinations that we do not give routinely, but are requested by the buyer, are non-refundable;
as well as the costs incurred by the seller for Coggins and health certificates.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!


As responsible breeders, we strongly promote, support and love geldings; they make outstanding  show/performance animals and absolutely
wonderful family pets.

Geldings are easy keepers; they get along well in a pasture with jennys and other geldings, and they make the very best babysitters for young weanlings.
Please don't hesitate to fall in love
with any of our little guys!

Shelby at three years of age
and Peanut at ten;
what a great combination!

Shelby at nine years of age
and Peanut at sixteen;
still a great combination!




Butt scratches are almost as good as donkey hugs!
