Below is a picture of the Jennet Barn with a line feeder. This gives all the donkeys a chance to eat as well as a tray underneath so 100% of the hay is consumed. When Brood jennets are 6 months pregnant they are moved to the foal barn where I can monitor there protein intake to make sure the foals will be healthy and strong. Within a week or two of foaling pregnant jennets are moved to the foaling stalls (see picture below) where I can monitor from the house either in the dining room or the bedroom by video cam. When the babies are strong enough they are moved back into the foaling barn until they are old enough to be weaned. All of the donkeys are turned out in one of the eight pastures daily, weather permitting with the foals in the pasture next to the house.

Dedication - With a clear goal in mind of breeding and raising the highest quality donkeys available decades ago, I am now the proud owner of some of the finest breeding miniature donkey stock in the world. I am very loyal to the breed and committed to breeding foals that are even better than the generation born prior.
Although there are no longer National Miniature Donkey shows held in the western U.S., I know my donkeys would do extremely well. My donkeys are bred to be conformationally correct, smart, trainable, and loving. Many of my customers enjoy using their donkeys in human therapy.
Here is an example of some of past show results! Highlights from the 2015 NMDA National Show in Red Bluff, California include Napoleon winning Get of Sire (represented by three of his offspring), my performance gelding Ransom winning Reserve Champion Non Driving High Point, and JF Almond Joy (by Napoleon) winning Reserve Champion Pre-Green High Point. In addition JF Rumor Has It (by Sparkplug) was second in the Yearling Jennets and JF Wandering Spark (by Sparkplug) placed third in the Foal class. My fancy junior herd sire that I bred and raised, JF Full Throttle (by Napoleon), won the Two Year Old Jacks class. JF Miniature Donkeys also did very well at the Lori Forge Memorial Donkey & Mule Show in Eugene, Oregon. JF Almond Joy won the Yearling Jennets and was named NMDA Reserve Junior Champion. JF Rumor Has It was second in the Yearling Jennets and JF Wandering Spark was second in the Foal class.
Several of the donkeys mentioned above have joined the breeding herd.
