MiMiniature Donkey Foals of 2017
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.

Our Foals of 2017




"The Elms Miss Fancy"

Brown & White Spotted Jennet
Birth:
May 29, 2017
MDR #pending

Sire:  The Elms Orion, 33" Dark Brown and White Spotted Wooly
     Grand Sire:   MGF Musketeer 32.75" Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Dam:  MGF Tell Me A Tell, 29 3/4"Dark Brown & White Spotted


Dam:  The Elms Spiced Wine, 33" Dark Brown
     
Grand Sire:   MGF Black Knight, 32.5" Black
     Grand Dam:  Rearview's Red Synnamon, 32.25" Dark Red

Such fancy markings! Miss Fancy has a lovely up-headed style, very elegant, like her mother, with really nice conformation. Those are very special markings, with the white collar and the full mascara around her eyes, highlighted by the blaze. Two white hind socks as well. Her base color, which is lighter than both her sire and dam, suggests that she carries red genetics (her mother is known to carry red). Calm temperament comes from both sides. Her sire is wooly, but her dam is not, and Fancy, with her normal foal coat, and lovely upright mane, will not be a wooly. I expect her to shed out normally and sleekly like her mother when mature. Available to go to her new home at weaning when she is 5 months old.

Sire:  The Elms Lil Hairy Dude, 31.25" Brown Wooly Jack
     Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30" Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  The Elms Absolutely Precious, 29 3/4" Black & White Spotted Jennet

Grand Sire:   L.U.A. Maxx's Little Buckaroo, 30 3/8" Black
     Grand Dam:  Gardner's Anna B, 32.25" Grey & White Spotted

Bolero is a likely looking foal, nice spotted pattern. These pictures are when he was a few days old, so too early to tell if he will be wooly. Same brown color as his mother. I’ll be taking more pictures of him soon. Nice friendly little foal, lots of confidence. Compact with small size.

Sweet little spotted donkey, very friendly, and small. She appears to be a good wooly jennet. Her mother, with a rich dark chocolate coat never completely sheds out. Pictures from July 26, 2017. 

Lucky Lady and her foal have been sold and are going to Germany.

Sire:  The Elms Fuzzy Wuzzy 30.75" Black & White Spotted Wooly Jack
     Grand Sire:   MGF Musketeer, 32.75" Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Dam:  MGF Shangri-La, 33.25" Black NLP

Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30" Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  Bainbridges Mary Jane 30" Brown & White Spotted

Mr Patch is going to be a really well built donkey. Looks like he will be a really good wooly donkey as well. He is an excellent herd sire prospect for someone with a wooly breeding program. His brown color is the same as his mother.  Little Patches (DOB May 2, 2012) is super easy to handle, and is doing a great job mothering this foal. Both donkeys are sized right for those who have micro or small breeding goals. The Elms Little Patches and The Elms Mr Patch are available together now.

New pictures are from August 3. Mr Patch seems to have very good wooly traits, his hair is falling in locks, his very floppy mane lies down, and he is as fluffy as can be. His mother has shed partially, as you can see in the picture below of them both grazing. This is typical of wooly donkeys, that they do shed mostly by the end of the summer. Little Patches retains belly hair, floppy mane, and body hair, but it is not as thick as in the winter and spring. Our traditional haired miniature donkeys are completely sleek at this time of year and have been for 6 weeks.

Brown and White Spotted Wooly Jennet
Birth:

Sire:  The Elms Fuzzy Wuzzy 30.75" Black and White Spotted Wooly Jack
     Grand Sire:   MGF Musketeer, 32.75" Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Dam:  MGF Shangri-La, 33.25" Black NLP


Dam:  The Elms Anneliese, 32.75” Brown Wooly Jennet
     
Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30" Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  Heiken's Ark Anneka, 32” Brown & White Spotted

Tiny foal takes after her sire and grandsire, Little Red Hairy. 18.5 inches at birth. Her mother is a wonderful wooly jennet, always has lots of hair, and we think with multiple generations of long hair on both sides that Liesel will be a good wooly foal as well. With spots, and small size, we don’t expect this foal to remain available very long. Anneliese and Liesel are being offered together.

Sire:  The Elms Lil Harry Dude, Dark Brown Wooly Jack
     Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30” Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  The Elms Absolutely Precious, 29 3/4" Black & White Spotted


Dam:  Bainbridge’s Emerald Isle, 32.5" Dark Brown & White Spotted Wooly Jennet
     Grand Sire:  
 Arrow Creek Harry Houdini, 34" Black
     Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Ezri, 33.5" Very Dark Brown & White Spotted

Lovely, spunky, spotted jack, and he is wooly. His sire is known to carry red, and the lighter brown color that Harp has shows he probably also carries red genetics. Nice conformation, friendly, and wooly. Harp is for sale at weaning which will be in October.

Black w/Cross Wooly Jennet

Sire:  The Elms Tip Top, 31" Dark Brown & White Spotted Wooly Jack
     Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30” Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  The Elms Absolutely Precious, 29 3/4” Black & White Spotted


Dam:  The Elms Absolutely Precious, 29.75" Black & White Spotted Wooly Jennet
     Grand Sire:  
 MGF Absolut, 31" Dark Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Dam:  Archadian Michaela, Brown/Gray & White Spotted

Oh, she is So Precious! Black with a cross, and hair that is so thick. We are sure she will be a wonderful wooly donkey, with this sire and dam.

Definitely a super wooly, as these pictures from August 15, 2017 show. At 3 1/2 months her black newborn foal coat has bleached out a lot, but the very dark color should return. However, as a wooly, she will always show bleached hair, so she will look mostly a rich dark brown unless you clip her. But then she wouldn’t be wooly, so it’s a choice. Lovely stocky conformation.

Sire:  The Elms Lil Hairy Dude, Dark Brown Wooly
     Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30” Dark Red

Dam:  The Elms Wooly Bear, 33” Dark Brown Wooly
     Grand Sire:  
 MGF Doctor Shivago, 32.5" Dark Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Dam:  MGF Whispering Rose, Brown & White Spotted

Really nice stocky jennet, and we can tell she will be wooly, like her sire and dam. More pictures coming soon.

This foal looks so much like her mother! She’s going to be wooly, and what a build!. Straight legs, stocky build, hair that falls in locks, long floppy mane. There is a reason her mother was a high selling jennet at the McRoberts dispersal sale. Are there eyes under those bangs?! Pictures taken July 15, 2017.

Black/Brown Jennet
Birth:
April 10, 2017
MDR #pending

Sire:  The Elms Tip Top,  Brown & White Spotted
     Grand Sire:   GJR Little Red Hairy, 30” Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  MGF Tequila Sunrise, 33” Dark Brown & White Spotted


Dam:  MGF Venus Pon Farr, 32.25" Dark Brown
     Grand Sire:  
 The Fireman, 32.5" Dark Red
     Grand Dam:  MGF Venus Uhura, 31" Black/Brown

First foal of 2017! A delightful strong, stocky jennet. Her dam is Venus Pon Farr, a Fireman daughter out of a Valintino 50 daughter. Pon Farr, a foundation jennet of excellence, at 22, did exactly what donkeys traditionally have done. She carried her foal with ease, gave birth at 11 1/2 months quickly to a strong foal that stood within 10 minutes, was nursing quickly afterwards, afterbirth passed intact within 40 minutes. We have always loved these foundation blood lines of the Fireman crossed to Valintino 50th. Pon Farr has had foals that were red, brown, black, black and white spotted, and some were wooly. The sire, Tip Top, is a wonderful wooly jack combining the Little Red Hairy and Harry Houdini blood lines. At this time we don’t know if this jennet foal, Valeris, will be wooly, but I can see enough to know that she will be compact, correct, and stocky. 19” at birth.

The Elms Valeris will be available at weaning. Contact us for more information.
