We specialize in raising the best genetically matched miniature donkeys and our foals show that we are accomplishing that every year! We raise Red (Sorrell), Black and Spots. We handle all of our donkeys daily and all are UTD on vaccinations, hoof care and worming. We are located in Central Iowa, just off of I 80--Give us a call or just stop by and see our beautiful donkey herd.   (1/16)

We have two of the best herd sires in the country.  My World Santana, 31" Dark Red Jack that produces a real deep dark Red color.  New this year is Sunset Acres Smart Derby, 32 1/2" Black that is a National Champion, Best of Breed and a Champion Model Donkey.  We are so excited to be able to have two of the best producing Jacks in North America.  Check our web site often to see the foals produced by these two herd sires

Raising quality registered miniature and micro-mini donkeys is a passion for us... they are our 'kids'. Anyone who's been around miniature donkeys, knows how sweet and loveable they are. We strive for good conformation, gentle dispositions, extended pedigrees, as well as small sizes and a variety of colors. All our herd sires are under 30". We are located just 12 miles from Muscatine, IA. Visitors and inquiries are always welcome... We look forward to meeting others who share our love of donkeys... And hope you consider us when buying your 'first' or 'next' donkey. (3/16)

We have a good number of donkeys available for sale. Due to health issues (our health, not the donkeys) we are cutting back on our herd... therefore we are offering a good selection of jennies, jacks and geldings at reasonable prices. If you do not see what you're looking for, just ask, since we often have others available that are not listed. Quantity discounts given... the more you buy, the better the savings!
