Ice Cream is a very fancy 35" spotted jennet sired by the famous Rainbow's Blizzard.  We called Sharon Cooke several years ago looking for a spotted jennet and she agreed to sell us Ice Cream.  We feel very fortunate to have her.  At 18 years old she continues to be a very consistent and exceptional producer.

Tina is a very pretty grey jennet sired by the renowned Little Motown.  Tina was the last of some of my "I've always wanted" donkeys.  For many years I had kept my eyes open for a Motown daughter.    Tina placed 3rd in the jennet class in Vermont at the 2002 Labour Day Donkey Spectacular.

Magic is a very friendly jennet foal that we have raised on our farm.  She is a real sweetheart with personality to burn.  Magic is very correct and straight.  We believe when she is shed off she will be true black.  She was very small at birth and I estimate her mature height to be about 32".

Ginger is a beautiful bright red jennet that we bought from North Gate Farms in Texas.  She has such a pretty head and lovely long ears, she has that real "look at me" attitude.  Her pedigree is full of very well know genetics including Quarter Moon, Circle C, LN and Sunset Acres.  The pictures really don't do her justice as she is probably our prettiest red jennet.

Callie is a very pretty little light sorrel jennet.  We purchased her from NorthGate Farms of Texas in 2012.  She was bred by Don and Anne Fossum in Alberta and we figured she just had to come back Canada.  Callie has a very pretty head and such nice conformation.  Definitely one of our favorites.

Lexus is another jennet that we bought from NorthGate Farms in Texas.  She was bred by Burlages in Colorado.  We are thrilled to have Lexus as a part of our breeding program.  I love the older bloodlines and Lexus is just a very nice jennet to work with.  She is a very classy jennet and has a super disposition.

Reg. #:  CDJE-CAN5275
MDR #: 41747

Sire: Stoney Acres Jett
Dam: MGF Queen Venus 

Dame is another very pretty correct jennet that we bought from Pat Buttler.  She is a true black with light points.  Although she is a taller jennet, her foals are consistently much smaller and have great conformation.  Her bloodlines go back to Dodge City Jack of Spades on both the top and bottom as well as MGF bloodlines on the bottom.  Dame is one of the easiest jennets we have to work with.  She is just a total pleasure to own.

Hot Dish is a very special girl and she knows it.  She is one more jennet that I had imagined myself owning some day.  She was another jennet sold at the First Impression Sale bought by Gordon Kluzak.  She was later sold in Kluzak's dispersal sale and bought by Dee and Max Keithley from Braying Hills along with Walkin on Water.  Hot Dish who happened to be Dee's favourite jennet was a super producer for Dee and she was shown many times by Dee.  I have to thank Dee so much for parting with Hot Dish and letting her return to Canada. 

Her show record includes:

Res Champ at the 2000AMDA Futurity
1st Yearling jennet 2000 NMDA
Res Jr Champion 2000 NMDA
Res Jennet 2 years & up 2003 International Livestock Expo Donkey & Mule Congress, Springfield IL

Dam: S.S. Shelley

 Wow is a jennet that I admired many years ago as a young jennet.  She was my personal favorite and had always hoped to buy a jennet like her.  She was sold as a yearling at the First Impression sale and bought by Gordon Kluzak.    She sold again in 2002 at Old West's Dispersal sale, but she was one of the high selling jennets at the sale.  In the write ups describing Wow they read thunder rolled, lightening struck, the water parted and Walkin on Water appeared.  She is as good as they get.  I feel so privileged to finally own Wow 9 years later.  Although she is older now, she still has great conformation and an outstanding disposition.  She has been a proven producer for both Gordon Kluzak and Dee Keithley of Braying Hills.  She won the jennet and foal class in Calgary the only time she was shown.  I would like to thank Dee of Braying Hills for finally giving me the opportunity to own one of my all time favorites.

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.

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

Reg #: CDJA-CAN5473

Sire: Red Sonnehi

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.

Daisy is our personal favorite jennet.  She is a 33" rich mahogany sorrel with a lot of color in her background.  Her foals have great confirmation and disposition.  We bought Daisy from Delores Durango after she bought her at Cooke's sale.  We have retained all of Daisy's daughters in our breeding program.

Christmas is a very drafty 31" grey jennet who is a daughter of Daisy.  She was at Daisy's side when we bought her.  Her sire is a black jack sired by Red Lightening, so she has a very diverse amount of color in her background.
