heart and soul stables

Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys

For Sale

heart & soul donkeys have all been well socialized with extensive handling and are on a regular vaccination, deworming and hoof trimming schedule. They are trained in halter and some to show.  All donkeys come with a new halter and lead, medical records and transferred registration papers (where applicable).  Male donkeys are gelded and sold as pets/companions (95%) with the exception of a very few jack foals who are herd sire quality. 

Intact jacks do not make suitable pets as they can be as dangerous and unpredictable as a stallion or bull.  Some say worse as the miniature donkey jack does not give any outward signals warning against impending attack.  

While miniature donkeys all have some desire to protect their pasture mates (the instinct varies widely from one individual to another), they are considered too small to be effective against anything more than a small, single predator (eg coyote).  Where 2 or more coyotes/dogs are involved the miniature donkey usually loses - often fatally.

 B.J. Lori

mature breeding Jenny

D.O.B:  July 15, 2001

 Height: 32 1/2 ins.

Color: Grey Dun

Sire:  Sunset Acres Jon

Dam:  Hartman Donkeys Lori

Registration: MDR (US)

Lori is a beautiful classic grey dun color with full cross and stripe. She is a very well conformed jenny that has had 2 foals for us.  Her bloodlines include McLendon's 45 Magnum, a well known 28 3/4 inch donkey who could be considered one of the first micro-mini donkeys.  She foals easily and is an excellent mother.  B.J. Lori can be a little shy so she would be best in a smaller herd.  She sells bred to Half Pint Hill Lone Star for a Spring 2014 foal.

Friday & Ernie

 
 
 
Our pair of geldings, Friday and Ernie, have returned from school!  Driving school that is.  On their first day they were ground driven.  Their trainer was so confident in their skills and rapid ability to learn that they were placed in a hitch on Day2!!!! 
 Try that with a horse.
 
Friday and Ernie are now available as a driving team (see below). 
 
 
 
Thank you Dusty Wiebe!
You've done a great job!
 

Dusty driving Friday and Ernie

Color: Light Brown

Birth Weight: N/A 

Sire:  Stoney Acres Prairies' Inferno

Dam:  Ass-Pirin Acres Clea

Registration: CDMA

Andru is a beautiful clear medium brown that catches your eye as soon as you see him.  He can be shy but this disappears quickly as soon as he realizes you are coming to see "HIM"! Andru is a half brother to Clato (below) as they are out of the same dam.  If you are looking for a matched pair, Andru and Clato would be a good option.

Clayto is the 1/2 brother of Andru (above) and this is obvious when they're together. They would make a very nice matched pair. Clato has multiple garters (zebra stripes) on all 4 legs which make him especially attractive.

Height: 33 1/2"

Color: Sorrel (Red)

Sire: Stoney Acres Prairies' Inferno

Dam: Stoney Acres Le Ray

The first thing you notice about Leriot is his intense red color. They just don't make them redder than this! He is also free from the "frosting"  or roaning which usually accompanies this rarest of the rare colors. Leriot is solid and square and at just over 3 years old is reaching his mature height. He would be an excellent candidate to train as a driving donkey.

 jack foal, to be gelded

Date of Birth: May 28/12 at 12:07 am

Birth Height: N/A

Birth Weight: N/A

Sire: Half Pint Hill Lonestar

Dam: B.J. Taffi

 Taffi was a first time mother who did extremely well.  She is a natural.  Her jack foal, "Candy Man" (aka "Manny") is substantial and looks like another little block courtesy of his sire Half Pint Hill Lone Star.  We can't tell whether he'll have a star yet as there seems to be a little bare spot where it should be.  We're guessing time will tell. Either way this little guy is going to be stunning!


Candy Man is a little shy and we have yet to get a photo of him. 

 

Sold

Manny is gone to Holland to live with Carylann and his donkey buddy Louis!

Stitch has to be the cutest little jack foal we have had in 2012.  He has huge soft brown eyes that make him look oh so innocent!  He has discovered that he absolutely loves people and he will stand still as long as he is being petted and cuddled.  He has a great future as a snuggly, loving companion!


Sold!

Stitch has found a wonderful loving home with Joanna & Ryan. Thank you for giving Stitch the home of his dreams!

Sire: Stoney Acres Divvan

Dam: Chocolate

One of our favorite jennies, Chocolate, gave us a beautiful jennet foal early am on May 26/12.  This is her first pairing with Stoney Acres Divvan and we are pleased with the result.  Cocoa is a tall, elegant jennet foal, very dark brown/black at this point and she has the most beautiful long ears which are reflexed at the tips.  The striking contrast of her dark body coloring with whiter than white light points accentuates her beauty. Cocoa is sold and will be available after weaning late this fall.  She will make a lovely pet/companion.

Her dark chocolate brown coat is accentuated with her striking white points and those enormous expressive eyes.

Whether you're looking to add a quality jennet to your your breeding herd or for a very classy pet, Danica is worth a look!

Birth Weight: 22#

Sire: Half Pint Hill Lone Star

Dam: Little Girl

Registration: N/A

Little Girl presented us with a handsome jack foal in the wee hours of May 20/12.  This little guy seems to be double jointed as we have seen him in the oddest positions that reminded us of a game called "Twister" - hence the name.  Twister has about a dozen white hairs on his forehead which would come from sire Lone Star who has a large white star.  Twister has inherited his sire's awesome conformation and looks like he will be a little block!  Twister is sold!

Asking price:

Twister has moved to Ste. Anne, Manitoba where he is being joined by heart & soul Danica.  Congratulations on your purchase of this fine pair Dan.  We're sure you'll all be happy with one another!

Sire:  Stoney Acres Divvan
Dam:  Stoney Acres Rosata

This little guy comes by his name honestly.  As a foal he just couldn't stand still.  His dam, Stoney Acres Rosata, managed to keep up with him in the beginning but soon retired.  She just accepted that Racer was born to run!  As a yearling he blossomed and is now an elegant dark brown "almost 2 year" old gelding with a loving personality and sleek good looks.   If you're looking for a new BFF,  Racer is it.  Catch him while you can!

Charlie is our resident stealth donkey - you never hear him coming!  He just seems to "casually" wander over so that he's close enough to pet - just in case you turn around.  He's as sweet as they come and a regular velcro donkey.

What a wonderful surprise!  We knew Patty Cake had the pedigree to give us a red foal and she didn't disappoint.  At first we thought Cupcake had inherited her mother's unusual tan/red color but as time went on she seemed to get redder.  Cupcake has excellent conformation, straight and square, with a wide chest.

Patty Cake came to us from Jack and Sue Pentland's "A Little Bit of Heaven" in Indiana.  She has an abundance of red highlights and could best be described as tan/red in color.  A double set of garters on each foreleg sets her apart from the crowd.  Patty Cake had her first foal by Stoney Acres Divvan this spring.  heart and soul Cupcake was born April 21, 2011.  Cupcake was 21 1/4 inches at birth and this fiery little red head is already showing her independent spirit.

Sale Terms and Conditions

 

If you are interested in a particular donkey a 25% non-refundable deposit will hold him for you.  All donkeys must be paid for in full before leaving the yard.  Terms are cash or bank certified cheque.   All sales are subject to GST.

 

Miniature donkeys are affectionate, loyal and love company,  preferably another donkey.  As donkeys are herd animals, a single donkey is a  lonely donkey.  We recommend the purchase of pairs and offer discounts on the purchase of two or more donkeys.

 

While most miniature Mediterranean donkeys have a natural instinct to protect their barnyard friends, where more than one predator (eg 2 dogs or coyotes) is involved the little donkey loses, sometimes fatally.  For this reason we do not sell miniature Mediterranean donkeys specifically for predator control.  A small standard size donkey is more suitable for predator control.

 

We also will not knowingly sell a donkey into a mentally or physically abusive situation (eg for the purpose of roping)  Please remember that these are our babies that we have raised and love.
