Circle C I'm Impressive

Born: June 10, 2012
Height: 30"
Colour: Red  
Reg. #: CDJA-CAN5397

Sire: Hooves ETC Sizzle

Dam: Circle C Miss Fancy


We were so excited to get another jack from Grant and Sharon.  We needed a new red jack and Sharon had just what we were looking for.  Impressive is very small but very solid.  He has beautiful conformation and a wonderful disposition.  He also offers some new bloodlines to our herd and is sure to downsize some of the foals.  We look forward to see a couple new foals from him in 2016.


Barn Name: "Recall"  
Born: May 12, 2007
Height: 30"
Colour: Red
Reg #: CDJA-CAN5473
MDR 60775

Sire: Red Sonnehi
Dam: LN Calley
We just bought Recall from Nissens in Iowa in April of 2014 to compliment our red jennets.  Recall is a very small compact little jack standing at only 30".  We had been looking for a red jack for a while but wanted some different bloodlines but at the same time wanted to keep the old bloodlines.  We were very excited to find a Red Sonnehi son and Recall has fit the bill.

Barn Name: "X"

Reg #: CDJA-CAN-4730



Sire: MGF Future Link - 32" Black,
2009 Calgary Stampede Grand Champion Jack
Dam: Circle C Special Edition - 32 7/8 " Dark Brown,
Multiple Champion Jennet in Canada & the US

In the fall of 2008 we started our search for another jack.  After a long search we again called Sharon Cooke to see if she still had any prospects.  She had a few to pick from and mentioned that they had a little jack out of Future Link co-owned with Dave and Kathryn Larson.  His name was Circle C/Hiwest EXT and his dam was Special Edition whose dam was Coco Channel who happens to be my all time favorite donkey.  I had admired Coco and Special Edition for many years and now we had an opportunity to add those bloodlines to our breeding program.  EXT is a very fancy little 30" jack with lots of colour and predicable genes that compliments Radar's daughters wonderfully.  We thank the Cookes and Larsons so much for giving us the opportunity to own such a great little jack whose bloodlines include Future Link, Red Lightening, and Little Motown wrapped into one.

                   Circle C Winston (Reference Sire Only)


Barn Name: RADAR
Born: September 4, 1998 to May 2009
Height: 33.5"
Colour: Dark Brown
Reg #: CDJA-CAN-3736

Sire: Red Lightening - 32" Dark Chestnut 
Dam: Anna of Circle C - 30" Brown

Circle C Winston was a super 33 1/2" black/brown jack with a huge personality.  We purchased Radar in 2001 from Grant and Sharon Cooke to improve our herd and genetics.  All of Radar's best traits were passed on to his foals: great conformation, disposition, well rounded hind ends, nice square shoulders and straight legs.  He never disappointed us.  We even had him driving.  Sadly we lost Radar in May of 2009, by far our favorite donkey.  Thankfully we have retained a few of his great daughters in our breeding program.
