About Us

You will find us in sunny Northern California, Just 7 miles off interstate 5. We are always happy to help you with info and advice. We have raised miniature donkeys since 1993 and have loved every minute of it. We have mini-donkeys for sale all year as we have three breeding jacks and eleven breeding jennets. All of our donkeys are hand raised and halter trained from birth. They are fully vaccinated,registered, micro-chipped and loved. We have a variety of colors, white, spotted, brown, black and gray. Our donkey herd is smaller in stature as our herd sires are 31, 29, 27 inches, Our jennets range from 30 to 31 with one being 32 inches.

We always welcome questions any time, also please feel free to contact us if you would like to come and visit the ranch.

We're looking forward to a new addition to our ranch from Dee’s Blacks & Spots in Tennessee “Dee’s Primary Bad Boy” will add to our breeding program as one of our jacks

We have used our two junior herd sires for 2020 babies. Cannot wait to see what they bring us, as Jimmy who is white has black and white in his pedigree and Josef also has black and white in his pedigree along with him being gray, which really is my favorite color.

WE have already bred 5 jennets this year for 2021 babies.


Gail's Uncle Alton 31 inch brown/gray and very sweet with great conformation, Which shows in all of his babies.
Gail's Jimmy Pops Morris 29 inch fully frosted white with a great temperament and body structure, He has black and white in his pedigree.
Rancho Rhea's Josef Edward Olson 27 inch beautiful gray with a small stature and great conformation. We are expecting great things out of him
