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 hickoryhilldonkeyfarm@windstream.net
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!

Mature Small Jack
Will breed both mares and jennys!
 

Hickory Hills Earle Gray

DOB:  03/24/08
 Birth Height:  18 1/2 - 19"
 Current Height:  28 1/2 - 29"
 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

$750


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!'

2013 ACOSA
National Champion Jack
 

     

     
Updated pictures taken April 2014

 DOB:  02/08/12
Birth Height:  19"
Current Height:  28 1/2" (April 2014)
Registered with both ADMS and ACOSA

  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:  Hickory Hills Sweet Pea
          30" - brown/gray/white spotted
     Grand Sire:  Hickory Hills Cocoa Bean
          27 1/2" - dark brown
     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! 
When he was 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 haircoat was longer/silkier than most babies,
and his mane laid over like a horse!  Would he produce wooly babies if bred to a wooly jenny?  Maybe/maybe not, but one thing for sure, those babies would be absolutely delightful!

* $2000 *

This little chunk is going to make someone an outstanding herdsire! 

The only reason that we are offering Zig N. Along to another breeding home is because his sire is a major part of our breeding program,
and we just don't have enough room to house another breeding jack with the same bloodlines comfortably!

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 will be making his new home in Natchitoches, Louisiana

************************

If you are looking for a young red jack, we have one that we are trying to get the winter hair off of and pictures posted very soon!  His sire is My World Red Alert, our senior herdsire, and dam is Ass-pirin Acres Pink Champagne; no doubt this little guy has outstanding conformation and would be an asset to any breeding program, especially one breeding for sorrels! 

Pictures and additional information coming soon!

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!



  


Sadie

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!

I'm taking pictures now of three yearling geldings that are available also;
they were gelded May 7, have fully recovered from their surgery and are ready to run at play!

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! 

We price our geldings at $500/each or $750 for a pair! 



Robertson

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 and be a real donkey!



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!

 

 

 

 



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 the young geldings, but his new friend, Downtown Brown, is quickly teaching him that butt scratches and donkey hugs are a good thing!

 

* and yes, he was born at 5:00 p.m. :)

 



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 and Rudy went to their new home in Stephenville, Texas together!

 

 

 

 

************************

Little Geldings Make the Best Ever Family Pets!

We also have two yearling boys that have recently been gelded and will be available the end of the month!  They grew up in the nursery together; they were born two weeks apart - 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 for $750

I'm working to get their pictures and information posted as quickly as possible!

************************

 

Three BFFs; available to a new home 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!

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! 

I'll post updated pictures as soon as they shed off their fuzzy winter hair!

 Sire: Brayers Are Us Tangueray Gin
       31" black/brown 
 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

 

 


    
 


 
Curtain Call
 DOB:  06/13/11
 
Color:  brown/slate/white
                w/lots of roaning

 Sire: CSF Major Money Maker
       31 1/4" blk/brn/white spotted
 Dam: PMF Daisy
       34 1/2" dark brown w/roaning

  *************************


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 two/three 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.  Shoo-fly 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 for her owners!

 

*************************

As we enter retirement, we have decided to 'show red' and now have several mature brood jennys (dark brown, gray and spotted) that we won't
be breeding now because of several years of 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 breeding program together for twelve years, and these jennys 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)!  They are just too good to sit aside and not used while we wait out Mother Nature's punishment on Texas! 

We offer them 'open' as pets for $750/in pairs
or we will expose them to the jack of your choice for $1000/pair!
Email us -
hickoryhilldonkeyfarm@windstream.net - for more information!

*************************
 
Available Mature Geldings
These two boys are a bit older, but they still like donkey hugs and butt scratches and running and playing! 
To ensure that they go to a home with a donkey best buddy, we offer a 'best buddy' discount!

Package of Two for $550



     

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! 



Liberty
 

   DOB:  07/04/06
  Sex:  Gelding
  Color:  Gray w/garters
  Sire:  CSF Major Money Maker
31 1/4" - black/brown/gray/white spot
  Dam:  1/2 Pint Cookie
         33 3/4" - gray-dun

             

Liberty was born on the Fourth of July, so we had to name him something patriotic, but had he been born on any other day, we would have called him Arnold; he looks like a body-builder ..... all buffed! 

 

*************************
Mature Barren Jennys

We have four jennys that we have been unable to get 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 should 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. 
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!



Asai
 

Imogene

Sassy

Ivy

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 foals in her younger years;
wouldn't it be something if Smoke was
able to 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 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! 

Her cycles have never been strong enough
to successfully conceive, but wouldn't
it be something if Smoke was able
to get her safely in foal again?

 

 

 

*************************

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!
