Sparkle the last foal of our former herdsire, Splendor's Nestle Special Dark, born here in the U.S. before he was sold to Marion and Peter van Dyjk in New Zealand. We wanted a black jennet foal from Nestle and Sunny so bad. Even had her name chosen before she was born, praying for a shiny black jennet. Thus her name, 'Sparkle' thinking she would arrive into our world, a shiny black little jennet! Guess what?? Sparkle was born...healthy, beautiful and black, and did she ever sparkle...and still does! We were so blessed! Sunny and Nestle gave us just what we had hoped for.

Sparkle has Nestle's outstanding confirmation, good muscled build (what a big hip on this girl) and good top line and a gorgeous head and neck. She also has a sweet, loving disposition.

Sparkle was sold to Darla Jackson, Ohio. She's raised two gorgeous, quality sorrel jennet foals, bred to a handsome sorrel/brown jack and turned out to be a fantastic mother to her foals. Sparkle has been bred to a quality, black jack of Darla's before arriving back to Wisconsin.
Due in May 2018.

GENDER: Jennet
DOB: 2/21/2009
HEIGHT: 31 3/4"
COLOR: Dark Brown

Sire: Short ASSets Star's War dark brown 30 1/2"

Dam: Short ASSets Halle Berry dark red 32"

National Champion Sire & Dam!
Both Short ASSets Star's War and Short ASSets Halle Berry won several national championship between them.

We're very happy to add Vanilla Berry to our group of quality jennets! She is such a sweetheart with great confirmation and top line, good muscle, pretty head and neck. She produced a pretty dark NLP jennet foal in 2016. We'll see what she can produce bred to a spot. Berry was bred to Magic for a July 2018 foal, but had a bout of colic in November, not sure if she aborted at that time or not. We'll keep an eye on her and have her ultra-sounded in the spring.

Nothing happening with Berry in July so she must have slipped her foal last November and was bred back at that time. We'll see what happens as fall gets closer.

Berry and Tess are forever buddies!

We are so excited to add Tess to our quality group of jennets! She has the outstanding confirmation, good bone, gorgeous head and neck, straight topline(even in her teens) and loving personality we look for to raise our foals.

In 2011, she was the National Champion Produce of Dam winner at the NMDA Nationals in Waco, TX, also dam of the 2011 Jr. National Champion, Myer's Meadows Starburst. Her son, Short Assets Spartan, was the 2012 TN State Champion Halter Jack and 2013 National Champion Jack.

When bred to red, Tess has produced red. In 2016 she was bred to a handsome HHAA spotted jack and produced an outstanding spotted jack foal. Tess has been bred to our loving boy, Magic, for an August 2018 foal...hoping for a spot, of course!
