We love our GELDINGS and love working with them! They love children and make great pets. We believe you can NEVER have too many! Not every jack is breeding quality and not everyone should keep a breeding jack, no matter how gentle, they still have hormones that sometimes get the best of their brain. They are not meant to be kept as pets! Geldings are gentle, lovable and so willing to be trained to do just about anything including driving, jumping, doing tricks and obstacles. Many horse owners are now using geldings and retired jennets as buddies when weaning their foals. Promoting geldings is another way to help the future of the Miniature Donkey breed!

Monty wins High Point Miniature Donkey at 2019 WI State Fair! Congratulations Monty and Makayla!

Makayla and Monty were also awarded a beautiful silver belt buckle for winning the Obstacle Course Race. Great job! Very proud of you both!
This year Monty turned 22 years old! Where did the time go? He is still healthy, happy and having fun being shown by us and our nieces, now ages 12 and 17.

Pistol Pete came all the way from the state of New Mexico! A BIG Thank you to Elizabeth Moore for allowing us to add Pete to our family and for all your help getting Katelyn and Jill trained to drive Pete. Very pleased with Katelyn and Pete showing together at the 2016 Kansas Donkey Days NMDA Show! They placed in every class shown in for a total of 7 ribbons all between 2nds & 4ths.
Jill had her eye on Pete as a baby on AssN9 Ranch's website when he was born. A 'dream come true' to now own him after being trained by one of the best!
Pete is a gorgeous gelding with outstanding confirmation, a beautiful head, striking spotted coloring with a wide shoulder cross and of course, a loving personality. We enjoy showing Pete in all performance classes as well as driving and halter.
Congratulations Pete and Katelyn winning Grand Champion Gelding and Reserve Champion Miniature Donkey at the 2016 WI State Fair! See all their show results on our 'Show Results' page.

Raider is a fantastic gelding! We are very pleased to add him to our mini donkey family! He is so calm and loving with a great personality, gets along with all our geldings. Raider has good legs and confirmation.
Prior to coming to Wisconsin, Raider had never been shown. After owning him only a couple months, he was shown at the 2019 WI State Fair in all types of classes, including jumping, trail, driving and fun timed events. Raider won 1st in two of the three driving classes he was shown in.
Raider is now owned and resides with our good friends, Bobbie and Leon. Bobbie will continue to work with him driving. Because of health reasons, we've had to cut back our donkey numbers. We will miss him and wish Bobbie continued success with Raider. He truly is a sweet, sweet boy!
