I love donkeys, too. Two years before my husband retired he decided he wanted to get a couple of donkey for a retirement project. We found two full sister jennets/jennies that were in foal by a spotted jack. Both jennies foaled spotted babies. Husband was so excited he went back and bought the jack.

Those jack babies were as gentle as new born puppies and just as cute.

The two little girls are my granddaughters. The older one is now a Mother, too and the younger one is a Senior in High School!!

This my older granddaughter with my TWH in the top picture and my QH mare, Candandy in her prime. The pic of my mare was taken in 2000. Her registered name is A Sharp Can.

Here is the Appy Gelding, Cody I had with my two granddaughters on him. He was a true gentleman.

Foxhunter your stories are the best! Kepp em coming.

Susan I want your donkey he is adorable.

I remember when I was riding my old lease horse Duke. 17 something hand high Percheron and we came across some miniature donkeys. He tried to trun around and book it back to the barn. He was terrified. It was pretty funny, like the elephant afraid of the mouse lol

Hunter - I had the same experience with Grace and Mules...there were 3 of them at the last show I went to. They kept braying over and over and it was making Grace nervous. When we got into the show ring, one was in the outdoor arena next door and bucked at something. This put Grace into a tizzy, and she reared up and spun in the class. Apparently she doesn't like mules LOL!

*Vent*

I hate when:

Someone posts something simple like "What color stallion would I have to breed my mare to and get something other than chestnut?"

Then, instead of giving the answer, referring them to a color chart, igoring the questions; people post:

*Why are you breeding your mare?
*Conformation and disposition are what you should be looking at .. not color.
*You must be a color freak ..
*Why are you looking at crappy horses just for color (because we all know that if they are colored, they are crappy ...??? )
*Why don't you just buy a foal?

Drives me crazy .. everyone is an expert ... aaaarrrrhhhH!

Ok, done now .. this has been a public service announcement...

Texas gal....I saw that thread and while I don't have the patience to breed myself, I feel with the genetic testing available today, it's not unreasonable to expect a certain color.

The vet did a lameness exam on Patsy just to make sure she is doing OK with the amount of hard work she is under and she passed easily!

Oh, just an irritation for me .. I know where people are coming from .. and if she were asking for specific stallions etc, we could get into the other stuff ...

She was just asking about color possibilities ..

Lol
