Another favorite jennet of mine.  This jennet has excellent conformation, one of our best with a nice deep hip and round rump.  She is a nice square donkey.  She too has many National Champions in her pedigree.  Circle C Raspberry Twist was Grand Champion jennet at the NMDA in 2001 and is a full sister to Circle C Red Tape and Circle C Showgirl.  We have been unable to get Twist in foal so will remain on our farm as a family favorite.
