Donkeys For Sale


Ask about our Layaway Plan

If you are looking for something in particular or don't see exactly what you are looking for on this page, please contact us at or 936-396-6377, we may have donkeys available that aren't yet on our website!

"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 you to do is 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 proper schedules for vaccinations and worming, and 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!

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; his mom does her best to keep up with him, but it's a full-time job!  Luckily, they are in one of the smaller pastures, and he can't run off too far!!

* $1500 *



Three of my favorite boys ............. Merle, Stuart and Smoke!
They have been very good to us; they produce quality foals and are gentle in the breeding pasture! 
But until Texas recovers from our drought and hay prices come down, we aren't breeding many jennys, and these four guys are too good not to be in someone's pasture romancing jennys and making babies!

Color:  dark brown/black w/cross

  Sire:  Country Music's George Jones
            30" - dark brown
  Dam:  Country Music's Ronna Reeves
            33" - gray-dun
There's nothing 'not to like' about this little jack and 'everything to love!'  He is absolutely wonderful! 
Merle's  conformation and disposition can't be beat!

Merle was shown in 2002 as a yearling and then used only for breeding until we purchased him in 2008.  Just for the fun of it and because the 2008 NMDA National Show was hosted right here in Texas, we decided to get him ready and show him.  We only had six months to get him in shape, but not to worry ............. the minute he stepped into that show ring, even after a six year layoff, he was ready to compete and show his charm! 

Merle has produced some nice tiny babies for us, and to our surprise, he has also produced a few spots!  We are offering Merle to a new donkey home where he will have a nice herd of small jennys to romance.  With our Texas hay situation, we are forced to reduce the number of babies we produce, and Merle is just too good not to be used more.

Update:  06/08/12 - 2012 Texas Shoot Out Donkey and Mule Show had an 'old man' class for jacks five years and older so we clipped him off and entered him.  We thought he looked handsome, and so did the judge; he won the first place blue ribbon!  This little guy still has what it takes!

* $2000 *

LN Stuart Little B

All shed off and ready for summer!

My curls keep me warm in the winter!

DOB: 04/16/04
Current Height: 29 1/2"
Color:  black w/cross

Sire:  L.U.A. Maxx’s Little Buckaroo
30 3/8” – black
 Dam:  LN Black Lace
            30 ½” – black w/cross

It's hard to describe this little jack in words; you really have to meet him in person to appreciate his quality; he is outstanding!  Stuart is short, stocky,  wide, straight and square and has a wonderful laid-back disposition.   

Stuart has always put a tiny little head on his babies and has produced both solids (mostly black) and spotted foals.  He is a gentle breeder and enjoys pasture breeding with five or six jennys at a time, or can also happy to have a single jenny with him for breeding. 

* $3500 *













Green Acres Smokey Star

DOB: 05/31/02
Current Height: 30"
Color:  dark brown/gray-dun

Sire:  PMF Total Eclipse – black/no cross NLP
Grand Sire:  PMF Bo Jackson
31 1/2" - dark brown
 Dam:  Short Assets Carmella - brown
Grand Sire:  Ozark Jazzy Jamm
31 1/2" - dark brown w/star

Smoke is tied to my heartstrings; I got him for Christmas when he was almost a year old, and we hauled him on the show circuit for three years.  In addition to doing well for us in the show ring, he was our PR donkey!  There will never be another jack or jenny that loves people anymore than Smoke!  He's had his picture taken hundreds of times and enjoyed every moment!  One of my fondest memories was when we introduced a young lady who had lost her sight to miniature donkeys through Smoke.  Ever so gently she felt him from the tip of his tail to his nose, and when I encouraged her to feel his ears, she immediately smiled and said 'big!'  There wasn't a dry eye in the crowd that had gathered to see this love affair in the making! 

Smoke is built like a little tank
and his disposition and personality can't be beat!,

Smoke is happy breeding  individual jennys or five or six in his pasture; it doesn't make him any difference; he will always get the job done; he's persistent and although gentle with his girls, he doesn't take no for an answer! 

* $2000 *


We've retired Pilgrim from the show ring and he's babysitting in the nursery, but I think he would make a wonderful performance donkey!

Will be making her new home
in Wisconsin with the Hoffman family; our vet just confirmed that she was, indeed, safe in foal with her first baby!  We are breeding her to Tangueray Gin who although isn't spotted himself, has a great record for producing spotted foals out of spotted jennys!

Thank you so much for falling
in love with one of our
favorite girls!

Shawnee Princess


DOB:  04/28/09
Color:  brown/white spotted
Birth Height:  21"
Current Height:  34" (September 2011)
Sire: Cobra's Randy Travis
32 1/2" - brown/gray/white spotted
Dam: Short ASSets Shawnee
33 1/2" - gray-dun 

The two pictures below are current; they were taken in February, 2012.


In addition to great conformation, Shawnee has an eye-catching color pattern.  We showed her once as a yearling at the big 2010 Texas Shoot Out, and she brought home a second place ribbon in a spotted halter class with donkeys all ages, all genders and all sizes.  We were delighted!

Shawnee's sire is an outstanding performance donkey, and her dam is a wonderful brood jenny.  In addition to the Cobra and Short Asset bloodlines, Shawnee's pedigree carries My World, Windcrest and  Rearview; she definitely has the right credentials! 

Around the farm, she is everyone's friend and never meets a stranger! 
She doesn't mind being haltered and stands quietly for the farrier! 

It is a very difficult decision to offer Shawnee for sale, but the price of hay here in Texas is killing us, and we have been told to prepare for yet another summer of heat and drought!  She will be bred to Tangueray Gin who has a good record of producing spotted foals!  Fingers crossed!









  Weanling/Yearling Geldings

it is important to us that they have a BFF in their new home!

Bluecoat Gin

 I'll take another one when
he sheds off that terrible brown winter hair!



 DOB:  03/26/11
 Birth Height: 21"
 Current Height:  32 1/2"

Color:  black
 Sire: Brayers Are Us
       Tangueray Gin
       31" - black/brown
 Dam: CM's Isabelle
       33 1/2" - dark brown

'Blue' was our first 2011 foal, and I can't say that we were surprised!  He is exactly what we expected as this is the fourth time we have bred Tangueray and Isabelle, and this is the fourth time they have produced an outstanding black foal (Junipero Gin, Norma Jean, Wyonna and now Bluecoat)!  We just can't go wrong in sticking with this cross!

'Blue' is a little chunk; underneath all that winter hair, he is round, firm and fully packed!  He has good bone, and nice straight legs!  We are considering him as a show ring prospect next year! 

* SOLD *


General Ledger

First day at the 'thinking tree!'


 DOB:  05/13/11
 Birth Height: 20 1/2"
 Current Height:  32 1/2"

Sire: CSF Major Money Maker
       31 1/4"
       black/brown/white spotted

 Dam: Bumpus Farms Suzie's Babe
       brown/gray/white spotted

Wow!  Looking for color?  Conformation?  Disposition?  This little guy has it all! 

His sire is a sweetheart of a little breeding jack, and his dam is every so quiet and shy, but on the other hand,
'Spud' is all boy; he loves life and enjoys every moment
to the fullest!

Because our Texas weather is so darn crazy, we haven't clipped yet, but we can hardly wait to see the pretty dark spots that are hiding under all of that hair!  We are thinking the ACOSA show ring next year!


* SOLD *

Bart is Silkie's little brother, and he looks a lot like 'Big Sis!'  We took him with us to the Oklahoma State Fair where he made his debut in the show ring.  He worked hard to walk/trot and stand still for the judge, and when they announced the winner of the Color Class,
it was Bart! 
OMG!  We were all surprised and delighted!

Arabella will make an outstanding addition to your breeding program; we have her dad and mom and now a full sibling jenny foal that looks just like her!

Cryer Creek's Callie Jo
      33 3/4" -
      dark brown/gray dun


Eve is a real eye catcher!  Rich black color and 'Betty Grable eyes' .......... she really stands out in a crowd; plus, she is a sweetheart! 

We've bred Callie Jo to Tangueray four times, and each time they have produced a fantastic foal, but this time they added the rich black color!

We successfully showed her two older sisters, and this little gal could easily be in the show ring!  She is gorgeous; stocky and straight!

Shoo-fly Pie

   DOB:  02/03/11
  Color:  brown
  Sire:  Hickory Hills Zig N. Bock
         28 1/2" - gray/white spot
  Dam:  Happy Acres Priscilla
         34" - gray-dun

Shoo-fly Pie belongs to a very good donkey friend of ours, and she is hanging out at our farm because she doesn't have any donkeys her age at home.  She lives in our yearling/two year old pasture with eight other young jennys and loves it!  She is a delightful little jenny and would be an asset to any breeding program.  She is straight and correct and has a wonderful laid-back disposition. 

Shoo-fly comes from a long line of strong genes; her mother is 22 years old, in good health and still produces quality foals.

* $1500 *


We have decided to 'go red' and now have several mature brood jennys (dark brown, gray and spotted) that we won't be breeding now because of the drought and the increased hay prices here in Texas.  They would be fantastic additions to any herd looking to add bloodlines and pedigrees to their existing stock or a perfect way for someone who is just getting into miniature donkeys to start.  They are all experienced mothers; let them teach you the ropes!  We have been putting our herd together for ten years, and these jennys have all done a good job of producing nice 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)!  They are just too good to sit aside and not use while we wait out Mother Nature's punishment on Texas! 

We offer them for $650/each open or $850/each exposed to the jack of your choice!
Email us - - for more information!


The donkeys listed below belonged to our good friend, Marcia Smalley, Bar 3S Miniature Donkeys, and due to Marcia's sudden and unexpected death in March, the family has made the difficult decision to sell her herd, and we are committed to finding good donkey homes for the animals that she loved so much! 

All of Marcia's donkeys are very social and friendly, up-to-date on vaccinations, worming and hoof trims; they have a current Coggins and have been micro-chipped and ADMS registered!

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact me at our email address:

  Mature Barren Jennys

We have four jennys that we have been unable to get settled; we've had them with several different jacks, and yet, no babies.  I don't give up easy, and I'm not giving up now, but our hay situation requires that we need to place these girls in good donkey homes as pets!  They are super friendly and social, plus up-to-date on vaccinations, worming and hoof trims; one of them is a National Halter Champion, and one shows woolie (long mane and thick curly haircoat) tendencies!  They live most of their time in a pasture breeding situation 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 the last foal we haven’t been able to settle her again. 

Asai is a friendly and has been a big help making Sassy (also listed with this group) feel secure in our herd.  I'm guessing because she has raised babies, she took on the mother role with Sassy!

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 two years ago as a bred jenny.  She continued to cycle, so we put her in with our jack, and unfortunately, we haven’t been able to get her in foal.  Ivy is very friendly and loves people!

DOB:  2001
Color:  dark brown
Height:  34”

 The thing you notice first about Mulata is her beautiful long ears; I love them!  She too is very friendly and loves to walk right by your side around the pasture!

* SOLD *

Going to her new home here in Texas with her good friend, Faith!



DOB:  1999
Color:  brown
Height:  34”

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






Small EZ Entry-Type Cart & Child's Saddle


CART:  Like brand new; only been used a couple of times; plastic protective cover still on seat!  Shafts are 13 inches apart at the narrowest point and 3 1/2 foot long; the distance from the shafts to the ground is 19 1/2 inches. Third (smaller) wheel is 12" in diameter and two back wheels are 18 inches. The seat sits 26" from the ground and is 26" wide!  This cart has a foot brake, but it is not connected!

This cart maybe too small for a miniature donkey,
and would better fit a large dog or goat!

* SOLD *



SADDLE:  Excellent 'grandkid' saddle!  Near perfect condition; no rips, mars or tears; kept inside!  Saddle seat measures 10" and it comes complete with all straps, hardware, girth/cinch and a padded saddle blanket!  All you need is the kiddo!

* SOLD *




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.
Many of our quality young jacks can be purchased with a "gelding incentive" at a discounted price! 

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!
