Miniature Donkey Foals of 2008
Elms Farm Miniature Donkeys



Miniature Donkey Foals - the Ultimate "Warm Fuzzies"
Miniature donkeys are among the most adorable creatures, and miniature donkey foals are the cutest, most adorable of all. While there is not a "miniature donkey for sale" sign on every mini donkey foal, we thought you would enjoy seeing them all.

These miniature donkey foals are the result of thoughtful breeding of our quality, registered miniature donkey jacks and jennets. In order to produce miniature donkeys of the highest quality, each mating is carefully planned to strengthen the characteristics of the parents. If you have specific interest in a particular miniature donkey foal on the way or one on this page, please let us know. We invite you to visit our donkey brood jennet page where we list which jennet is bred to which jack and the approximate due date.

Dark Red Jennet
DOB 8/09/08
MDR # Pending
Birth Height: 21.25"


Sire: My World Santana, 31" Dark Red
     Grand Sire:  Rearview's Red Rock, 32.5" Dark Sorrel
     Grand Dam:  My World Red Kelly, 32.75" Fire Red Sorrel

      Grand Sire:  MGF RJ, 32" Dark Red
      Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Geofire 413, 32.5" Red/Brown

We waited with great excitement for this foal, from one of our RJ daughters, Light My Fire, and sired by Santana. What a gorgeous delight, this super dark red jennet is! Everything is working with her, her build, temperament, color. Couldn't be happier with our last foal of 2008.

Dark Brown Jennet
DOB 7/19/08
MDR #Pending
Birth Height: 21"

Sire:  The Elms Rembrandt, Black/Brown
     Grand Sire:  MGF Black Knight, 32.5" Black, no cross
      Grand Dam:  L P Cocoa, 32" Black/Brown


Dam:  KDL Nina, 33" Dark Brown
     Grand Sire:  The Fireman, 32.5" Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  Happy, Gray-Dun

Another Jewel from Nina! Nina is one of our older jennets, a Fireman daughter, and back to the imported donkeys Luigi, Dominic, Benita, and Mary in four generations. She has had a lot of very lovely foals, and since we have had her, she has had all jennets for us. We know this Crown Jewel will grow up to have straight legs, wide chest, stocky build, like her mother, and top it all off with a temperament that is gentle and sweet, because that will come from both her parents. Nina will be retired from breeding now, and Jewel is a beautiful foal for us to celebrate!

Dark Red Jennet w/Star
DOB 6/19/08
MDR # Pending
Birth Height: 21.25"


Sire: My World Santana, 31" Dark Red
     Grand Sire:  Rearview's Red Rock, 32.5" Dark Sorrel
     Grand Dam:  My World Red Kelly, 32.75" Fire Red Sorrel


Dam:  The Elms Foxy Lady, 32" Dark Red
      Grand Sire:  MGF Fiftyfire 519, 31.5" Red/Roan
      Grand Dam:  Merry-Go-Round's Clementine, 32" Dark Brown

Stella has a big star, and I think she knows how cute it makes her! We can't miss this jennet in the herd. She is outstanding in every way, from the wide chest and straight back and legs, balanced build, good movement, great personality, rich color, even a bold cross. The pedigree is exceptional as well, with Santana as her sire, and Foxy Lady, a Fiftyfire daughter, for her dam. Look at the maternal grandmother, Clementine, who is one of our very best jennets.

Dark Red Jack
DOB 6/18/08

Sire:  MGF Fifty Fire, 31.5" Medium Sorrel
     Grand Sire:  The Fireman, 32.5" Dark Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Creole 43, 32" Dark Sorrel


Dam:  Merry-Go-Round's Clementine, 32" Dark Brown
     Grand Sire:  Red Baron
     Grand Dam:  Merry-Go-Round's Jesse

Watching a donkey move tells you a lot about their conformation, the smoother the action, the better the conformation. Strider has a beautiful, fluid movement, and in fact, it was awhile before we managed to get a picture of him when he was not moving. He has his sire's alert carriage and pretty head, and is shaping up very very nicely. His mother, Clementine, stays in our breeding herd, along with two sisters Foxy Lady, and Rustina. We love what Clementine brings to the breeding. His two full brothers, King Crimson and Cadbury, have been exported.

Black Jennet
DOB 6/10/08
MDR #Pending
Birth Height 21.75"

Sire: MGF Black Knight, 32.5" Black. no cross
     Grand Sire:  Circle C Black Russian, 30" Black, NLP
     Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Francine 567, 34" Dark Brown


Dam:  MGF Tell Me a Tale, 33" Dark Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Sire:  Arrow Creek Harry Houdini, 34" Black w/Cross
     Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Thrivas 874, 32" Dark Brown/Gray & White Spotted

         

This little jennet foal made me think of some sultry beauty from a romantic tale, so that led to her name. We call her Mandy, and she is sweet as the day is long. True glossy black, with white points, and that 'look at me' style. Her sire, Black Knight, continues to impress us with the high quality of his foals. We particularly like their mellow temperaments. Her dam is a woolly jennet with a sweet temperament, stocky build, heavy bone, and lovely long hair. Lots to like with this dreamy little jennet..

Dark Brown Jennet
DOB 5/29/08
MDR #Pending

Sire: MGF Black Knight, 32.5" Black. no cross
     Grand Sire:  Circle C Black Russian, 30" Black, NLP
     Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Francine 567, 34" Dark Brown


Dam:  MGF Whisper Me a Secret 429, 33.25"Dark Gray & White Spotted
     Grand Sire:  Arrow Creek Harry Houdini, 34" Black w/Cross
     Grand Dam:   MGF Venus Desert Song 963, 32" Gray & White Spotted

         

This is a little doll of a jennet. We didn't realize Whisper was quite so close to foaling, and came in the barn in the morning to find this jennet half dried off, and no mother around. Whisper had abandoned her in the stall and gone out to join her buddy outside. We put them together in a stall, and this foal went straight to her mother to try to nurse. Whisper wanted nothing to do with the foal, but this little jennet would not take no for an answer. She was persistent, and kept trying to nurse, and would follow her mother around the stall like the best behaved foal you ever saw. Whisper, with all her long flowing hair, is addicted to the grooming brush. She would stand like a rock while I brushed her and would let the foal nurse. Several hours later, Whisper finally accepted her foal without being groomed, and now is doing a fine job mothering her. Meanwhile, little Persistent Whisper, "Sista," is always close to her mother! Her mother is heavy boned, wide and stocky, and we can see that her foal has a wide chest, straight legs, perfect teeth, rich dark chocolate color. Too early to tell if she will also have the long hair, but we couldn't be happier with this jennet's build, and personality!

      Grand Sire:  Sunset Acres Rustico, 33" Red
      Grand Dam:  Merry-Go-Round's Rose Sachet, 31.5" Red

This year, if the foal is red, it's a jack, until this little gem of a sorrel jennet! We're thrilled to have Rosie, she is super dark red, and sweet as can be.

A lovely dark brown jennet, Mojave is siring very straight foals with straight legs, wide chests, well balanced, and with very pretty heads. Sirena has a sweet personality, always ready to come for petting. This is her mother's first foal, ?but Tempy has done everything as if she has had foals before, a great mother. It's such fun watching these two.

She is straight out of fantasy, this special all black jennet. We gave her the name from the Arabian Nights, expecting this little jennet to cast a spell on you. In a sumptuous black coat, with a wide chest with plenty of air, Scherezade is a delight to see, and stunning in motion. Full sister to The Elms Perfect Black, top seller in the 2004 Great American Miniature Donkey Sale.

     Grand Sire:  MGF Black Knight, 32.5" Black
     Grand Dam:  Pine Grove Farm's Pittypat, 32.25" Brown

Here's an elegant little jennet, and she is already a regular flirt, so we named her Kokette. She has a rich dark brown color, deepening every day. Right now with her velvet coat on, she is very pretty. Structure cannot be faulted, a wide chest, and straight legs with good bone. She has a beautiful head. Sometimes it is hard to get pictures of donkeys with dark noses, but this little jennet just shines.

     Grand Sire:  Sunset Acres Rowdy Yates, 32.5" Black
     Grand Dam:  Short Spots Sunny, 32" Brown & White Spotted

Kalahari is a likely herd sire prospect. This lovely little spotted jack started out red and white spotted, time will tell if he stays that color. He has a gorgeous head, with full mascara around each eye, and the white eye rings in his cheek patches. Super straight legs, and a wide chest. He is mostly color, with spots on both hips, and a long sock on his back left leg. New pictures coming soon!
