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.

Visitors to JF Miniature Donkeys are welcome to stop to view the donkeys from the fence line. They are very curious and social so the often come over close to the fence. Please do not attempt to feed or pet them. Parking is available near the barns. I receive many inquiries asking for a tour. I work full time and simply do not have the time to offer tours. We do make exceptions under extreme circumstances for children with terminal cancer or related illnesses. I do schedule appointments for people who are serious about purchasing donkeys to add to their farm.

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.

Recently we purchased several jennets from Quarter Moon Ranch as well as our newest herd sire Quarter Moon Flashbang. We feel very fortunate to buy these high quality girls. They are the last of their outstanding herd. Quarter Moon Ranch has been recognized world wide as a leading breeder of national champions. Pretty heads, drafty conformation, great legs and beautiful movement has been the cornerstone of their breeding program. We look forward to future foals out of these girls.

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.

JF Ranch (aka JF Miniature Donkeys) is located in the picturesque and fertile Skagit Valley on 69 acres in Northwest Washington State. Im dedicated to showing, breeding and selling high quality colorful miniature donkeys with correct conformation and wonderful temperaments.

I've been involved in breeding, raising, showing and selling top quality livestock since the early 70's. In 1989 I joined one of the leading Arabian horse breeding facilities in the U.S. as office manager often overseeing all aspects of a successful breeding operation.

In 1993 Todd and I started raising, showing and selling performance Quarter horses across the country. We bred via tranported semen to some of the top reining, reined cowhorse, and cutting stallions in the country. Again emphasis was placed on conformation and performance.

During 1998 I also purchased our first registered miniature jack and jennet from Meadow Wood Farms owned by Loyal McMillan, part of the Nordstrom family. The donkeys are smart, have great personalities, and are fun to train and relatively easy to maintain.

In 2005 I started to assemble a group of high quality jennets from all over the U.S. that are conformationally correct, colorful, possess loving personalities, and are from superior bloodlines.

I have also carefully selected first class jacks which will certainly add to our success in the breeding business. It is with great pride that we offer resulting foals from our breeding program to loving homes.
