This is our first foal from our new herd sire Ten-X and he is a beauty.  He has a very thick bone and excellent conformation with a perfect bite.  His pictures don't do him justice.  He certainly has the making for a great herd sire or a show performance gelding.  We are so pleased with this foal.  Oh how I wish I could keep them all.

Beamer is available for purchase.

Gelding - $650.00
Herd Sire - $1500.00

 Ten has given us another spectacular foal. Shiraz will carry the red gene and gives a breeder a versatile breeding jack for red or black.  Stay tuned as we will be watching Shiraz and deciding if his destiny is to be a potential herd sire, so far we say yes!

 Congratulations Jan and Mike Mackay at Dragonfly Coulee in Swift Current Saskatchewan on the purchase of this great little jack.  He has a great pedigree with some very well known breeding stock. We look forward to seeing his offspring.

STONEY ACRES PRADDA 32" MEDIUM BROWN
 GRAND SIRE:  MGF PRAIRIE FIRE, 32" SORREL
GRAND DAM:  WHTIE STAR'S X'TREME DIVA 31"DARK BROWN

This is Pradda's first foal.  She is a totally awesome mom.  She is so laid back and kind and displays the same behavior to her foal.  Although this guy is brown he has lots of red in his pedigree, top and bottom.  Pradda is a very short and stocky donkey so we have great hopes for this little boy.

This little guy came a week early to accommodate my family visiting from Vancouver.  They were to leave that afternoon and Diamond went into labor and the family were able to view the textbook birth.

This little guy is gorgeous.  He has all the makings of a herdsire.  His color is identical to his dam.  He has a short back, a perfect bite and not to mention his excellent pedigree including Circle C Legend and NCL Diamond Flush.  He will be a show stopper!

COLOR:  SILVER GREY

SIRE:  UNKNOWN

DAM: 
HOOVES ETC. NUTMEG
GRANDSIRE:  HOOVES ETC. RASCAL, 31" GREY DUN
GRANDDAM:  LL RAYANNE, 35" GREY

If you are looking for a performance gelding, this might be your guy.  This fellow is all legs. There is lots of height in his pedigree including Little Motown.  He's a very likeable fellow with very unique markings.  His stripe goes from his wither to the tip of his tail and really stands out.  He is a very striking fellow.
This foal's mom was purchased last September to remove her from a less than desirable situation.  Nutmeg was already in foal to an unregistered black jack.  This foal will be registered as 50% purebred with the CDMA.

GRAND SIRE:  MGF Future Link , 32" BLACK/BROWN
GRAND DAM:  DARK GYPSY OF CIRCLE C 34" BROWN

This is LeRoy's last foal for us as we sold him last fall.  This little jennet is the friendliest donkey we have raised so far. She is quite comfortable to lie in my lap.  She has lovely big ears on her petite face. And look at those perfectly straight legs. LeRoy's foals have great bone but she still has the feminine touches making her a delightful and gorgeous little girl. She will be a show girl in the halter class for sure.  But above all I just love her personality.
