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!

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 handsome 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.
Congratulations Pete and Jill winning Reserve Champion Gelding at halter at the 2018 WI State Fair! Also Congratulations to Pete and Katelyn for winning first place in the Costume class dressed as Wonder Woman and Captain America. He also placed in many others classes.
Pete and Monty have became great friends and they will be with us forever!
TLA Royal Sean
COLOR: frosted red/white spotted
Sire: RDF Rolls Royce 31" dk brown/white spotted
Dam: Short ASSets Tess 32" brown
Our new baby Sean has arrived! He is named after Jill's Dad's Arabian stallion that lived to be 32 yrs old. He was Dad's dream come true, to own an Arabian stallion.
Born early in the morning on July 29th, Sean was just beginning to stand, still wet when we found him. He is one of the friendliest, loving foals we've ever had. His coloring is very unique, very similar to Tess's jennet foal, Sophia born 2 yrs ago. Not sure what color Sean will end up but so adorable now. He has a gorgeous little head, straight legs, everything we'd hoped for with this Tess/Roy cross. Just look at his 'royal' pedigree!
Sean's dam, Short ASSets Tess has produced two National Halter Champions. His sire, RFD Rolls Royce, is a Champion Halter jack owned by Bill and Jenny Davis-Rolling 'D' Farm.
One year has passed already...Sean is now one year old! His coloring has stayed the same and he is a gorgeous frosted red/white spot.
We have castrated Sean and hope to teach him to drive. He has a gorgeous stride with good bone, straight legs.
