GENDER: Jennet
DOB: 11/5/2003
HEIGHT: 32 1/4"
COLOR: brown

Sire: Short ASSets Coppertop red 29 1/2"

Dam: Short ASSets Jam-my-ma dark brown 32"

National Champion/National Champion Producer!
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 was bred by an outstanding, award winning, young spotted jack, RDF Rolls Royce, owned by Bill & Jenny Davis of Rolling 'D' Farm. She foaled a fabulous red/white frosted jack foal, Sean.

Tess is bred to Sunny G's Kash, a 28" handsome, adorable gray jack for spring 2022. Her foal will be named after her best friend, Berry. This will be Tess's final foal, she will be retired.

Unfortunately we lost Tess's best friend, Berry to a freak accident spring 2021. It's taken Tess several months to get back to her normal self...at least mostly back. Donkeys grieve too. We all miss Berry but probably not as much as Tess.

GENDER: Jennet
DOB: 6/5/2018
HEIGHT: immature"
COLOR: black w/ light pts

Sire: Feather Ridge ??? 31" black w/light pts

Dam: TLA Sparkle Girl 34" black w/light pts

What a loving, little black jennet, that arrived all alone with her mom, Sparkle. Guess they didn't want an audience. Her barn name is Chloe. When we arrived home from work that Tuesday around 6:00 pm she was already standing and nursing. Sparkle did an outstanding job.

Chloe has a gorgeous little head with beautiful highlights around her big, bold eyes. Along with outstanding confirmation, straight legs, she has personality PLUS! She sure is a sparkling black, just as her mom and grand sire, Nestle.

Now soon to be 4, Chloe has matured into a beautiful black jennet. She still has personality plus, which sometimes gets her in trouble. We look forward to breeding her to our boy, LN Lazzaro for a 2023 foal.

At 3 1/2 yrs old, Shiloh has matured into a very nice jennet. We enjoy having her as a part of our donkey family.

Shiloh's sire is a spot and her dam is black. We have bred her to an outstanding dark spotted jack, FOA Briar, son of TTW Cowboy's Kalamazoo, a loud black/white spot in hopes of producing a gorgeous spotted foal. Due: August/September 2023.

DOB: 4/1/09
HEIGHT: 34 1/4"
COLOR: Black w/light pts

Sire: Splendor's Nestle Special Dark - 32 1/2" Black

Dam: Short Spots Sunny - 33 1/2" Dark brown/white spotted

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.

Sold - Congratulations to Larry Sorensen for adding Sparkle to your donkey family! Sparkle is now living in Minnesota with her dam, Short Spots Sunny! Wonder if they will remember each other after 9 years?
We are very sad to hear news that Sparkle has passed away!
RIP-Jan. 2022 You will always be with us in our hearts!
