This is a miniature Horse and a Miniature Donkey Auction, there will be separate categories for the horses and donkeys!

This is our 7th Coast to Coast Auction, the previous auctions have been successful and is turning out to be a great marketing tool as well as a place to sell our miniature horses and miniature donkeys - If you have any questions at all please feel free to email me at Join us in this online auction and take advantage of marketing your horses and donkeys all across the Country and in Canada too!
The cost to enter the auction is $30 per horse or donkey, there is no commission charged at all, so the entry fee is no more than average advertising fees. The deadline for entries is Feb 23rd!
This auction will include horses and donkeys from all over the country and Canada so you will get great exposure!
If you enter horses or donkeys in this auction please plan on being available to answer all questions about them, all questions will go directly to you
If you enter a horse or donkey with a reserve price, please do not change or drop your reserve mid-auction unless there are no bids on your entry - if there are bids we will not change the reserve or drop the reserve (sorry, it causes to much confusion)
You may pull your horse or donkey from the auction at any time - BUT there will be no refunds and no substitute horses or donkeys will be allowed
At the end of the auction buyers will be instructed to contact sellers to make payment within 24 hours unless PRE-arranged with seller
BUYERS - You need to get a new bidding number for each auction we hold!
If you decide to enter horses or donkeys please contact me with the number of spots you want to reserve, I will then invoice you via paypal (no checks) once the invoice is paid I will send you an online form to fill out with all your information - it will be one form per animal entered. This will save us all a lot of confusion and time.

 Donkey Welfare Symposium

The first Donkey Welfare Symposium in November of 2013 was a huge success.  No less than 192 donkey owners, rescuers, veterinarians, and scientists got together for three days of lectures, laboratories, and discussions on donkey health, behavior, and welfare.  As a result this is going to become a yearly event at the University of California, Davis’ School of Veterinary Medicine.  This year the dates are November 7,8, and 9 of 2014. For a full list of speakers and topics, please see . At the DWS we pride ourselves in presenting a practical, but cutting program that will benefit everyone from the pet owner to the veterinary professional.  As part of our innovations for 2014, we are including a donkey training clinic, featuring the internationally celebrated behaviorist and trainer, Benjamin Hart (  A limited number of symposium attendees will not only get the opportunity to learn
  the science and practice of behavior modification from Ben, but will go home with their newly trained, adopted donkey and friend. To make this event all that it can be and improve the welfare of the world’s donkeys, we need your help. Please see the attached materials for details and PLEASE help us ‘get the word’ out by alerting your members and readers to this really unique opportunity.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at anytime.
