We love our GELDINGS and love working with them! They love children and make such good 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, loveable 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!
Half Ass Acres Monty
COLOR: Dark Gray Spotted
Sire: Fisher's Great Gildersleeve 32 1/4"
Dam: Half Ass Acres Christy 32 1/2"
Monty has won many, many awards shown by Kathy Loudamy, early in Monty's show career, including two National Halter Championships. In limited showing, he has won or placed in many shows here in Wisconsin, at the Indiana State Fair and at all of the Wisconsin State Fair Shows, the last three being NMDA Approved shows. Monty is a do-it-all gelding! He excels in showmanship, leading trail, coon jumping, leading barrels, leading poles, the costume class...you name it, he does it. Monty is also green broke to drive.
Monty is a wonderful gelding that is so enjoyable to have around and loved by everyone wherever we go! He usually ends up as our babysitter for our weanling jacks too.
Even in his teens, Monty is healthy, happy and having fun being shown by us and our nieces, now ages 10 and 14. We have taken Monty to several benefits and our church fall festival, giving cart rides. Monty definitely has a 'forever' home with us in Wisconsin!

Welcome to Wisconsin Pistol Pete...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 work with 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 young gelding with outstanding confirmation, a beautiful head, striking spotted coloring with a wide shoulder cross and of course, a loving personality. Looking forward to showing Pete in all performance classes as well as driving and halter.
Congratulations Pete and Katelyn! They won Grand Champion Gelding and Reserve Champion Miniature Donkey at the 2016 WI State Fair! See all their show results on our 'Show Results' page.
