Preserving the integrity of the Miniature Donkey is the primary objective of our breeding program. Over the past twenty years we have selected or raised top quality jennets and have bred them to outstanding jacks. Our goal is to produce compact, well-balanced examples of the classic Mediterranean Miniature Donkey with their trademark 'endearing' personalities.

We have 18 brood jennets that we breed approxiamately every two years or even less in this economy. Their heights range from 28 ¾" to 34 ¼" with an average height of less than 31 ½". We have 3 young jennets (located on our future brood jennet page) that will not be bred until they are, at least, four years of age so that they are not expected to raise foals of their own until they are mature at five years of age. If other breeders followed this practice we could possibly keep the donkey market from falling and our donkeys happier and healthier. As these young jennets are added to our breeding program we will be offering some of our other jennets for sale to keep our herd at a manageable number. We want to always be able to give each of our donkeys the individual attention that they so crave.

Click MDR Registration sticker to see Miniature Donkey Registry Pedigree Ch Ching's complete pedigree!

Ch Ching's name means excellent, fantastic, and is believed to come from the sound falling coins make. Her color is a dark brown/roan (near black) with white spots. She has two dark eyes with eyeliner all around. Ch Ching was sold as a yearling to my great friend, Jane Savage, at Flight of Fancy Miniatures in New Hampshire. We just recentely purchased her back when Jane sadly retired from the miniature donkey business so she could travel. This jennet is a full sister to the late and great Half Ass Acres Mojave who appeared on the cover of Asset Magazine one summer. She is also a full sister to Half Ass Acres Splish Splash and a half sister to HHAA Hula Hoop, HHAA Presto and HHAA Pajama Girl.

We pasture exposed Ch Ching to Bruise from March 28th, 2015 thru May 20th, 2015. We last observed her in season on April 12th, 2015. You can now observe Ch Ching under the barn cam. She is in the front stall and paddock along with Sweetie.

Christmas came early this year because Jitterbug has just arrived all the way from Coyote Run Miniature Donkey Farm in Arkansas. She is a gorgeous masked spotted light red who is covered in beautiful dapples from her head to her tail. She has four white legs and the largest blaze face you have ever seen. She has been bred to Coyote Run's Red Ranger, a best of breed champion dark red jack for a foal due the first week of August, 2016. Jitterbug is trained for driving and in-hand events so we are hoping that she is not in foal so she can be shown in 2016. We have always loved and admired this jennet when we saw her competing in NMDA shows so when she was offered for sale I jumped at the chance to own her. This is one very fancy performance donkey and we absolutely love her! Thank you to Jerry and Belinda Whitley for allowing me to own Jitterbug and to Sandi Costa and Belinda for doing such a fine job of training this fabulous jennet. I am still pinching myself to realize that she is really mine.

A special thank you to my side kick, Katie Randall, for the fantastic job she did handling this jennet. Everything you see from the trail obstacles to her driving was done for the very first time with no practice runs. Both of these girls are amazing and I am so blessed to have them in my life.

At this point Jitterbug is not looking like she is in foal. Time will tell.

Jitterbug has produced the following foals:

1) Information coming soon but the foal is now residing in France.

2) Expecting her next foal in August of 2016.

We sold Miss HiFalutin as a newborn for $5000 in 2008. We just purchased her back from her owners that are having severe health problems plus they are moving and have no place to keep her. She has just been a cherished pet and lived the life of luxuary with her best friend, Bets (see below). She came back to us with a severe weight problem and we are slowly but surely getting her back down to a reasonable weight. We will breed her this spring for her first foal that will be due in 2016. We are thrilled to have her back as she is sired by our now retired and gelded former herd sire, Peppercorn, and out of one of our favorite and now deceased brood jennets, Glorianna. She is a full sister to Bedazzled, Ma Bell (now residing in Australia) and Hey Sailor.

HiFalutin has been hand bred to Misty Meadow Briar Patch for a foal due on October 5th, 2016. This will be her first foal and also Briar's first foal for us. These fabulous photos would not have been possible without Katie Randall's expert assistance.

Sweet Pea, Punch's dam, was bred to Black n Blue, aka Bruise, our young herd sire and Punch was his first offspring. We are so excited about what he has produced for us. He and Sweet Pea have put their gene stamp on this gorgeous little girl in a very special way. We could not be any more pleased with Sweet Pea, Bruise, or Sweet Punch. Our friend in Florida, Donna, named this little foal for us. Suits her since she is sweet as can be and her daddy is Bruise, the jack with the 'knock-out' punch! Thanks, Donna, we love her name!

Punch has been hand bred to Zoo for a foal due on October 30th, 2016. This will be her first foal and our first foal born here sired by Zoo. We are very excited about what this combination should produce as genetically there are only two color possibilities for this foal...solid dark or dark spotted!

Bets is the product of two National Champions and it shows from her head to her tail! She was sold for $10,000 as a newborn and we just recently purchased her back from her owners who are having health problems and moving and have no room for donkeys. Bets has been a pet all of her life but we will hopefully make her a mom for a foal that will be due in 2016. She has never been separated from her best friend, Miss Hifalutin, and we intend to keep them that way. Photos and videos were taken on July 20th, 2015, with the expert help of Katie Randall. Bets has been bred to Bruise for a foal due on November 16th, 2016, the last time we observed her in season but she is still pastured with him now.

If this donkey is ever sold she is promised to Jerry and Tonnie Willrich at Itsy Bitsy Burro Company. This is one exceptional jennet!!

Click MDR Registration sticker to see  Miniature Donkey Registry Pedigree Junie's complete pedigree!

We were thrilled to add Junebug to our herd. She is built like our ideal donkey. She was Linda Trimnell's very favorite donkey and the very last one she sold when she dispersed her herd due to health reasons. We are flattered that she let Junebug come to live at Half Ass Acres. Please, please don't tell the other donkeys but Junebug is my personal favorite brood jennet!

Photos and videos were taken October 14th, 2015, at eighteen years of age. Thank you to Katie Randall for her expert handling of Junie during her photo shoot. The Bug was wonderful for her photos but difficult is putting it mildly for her spa treatment. Just ask Katie for details!! Junie is slightly spoiled to say the least...first by Linda Trimnell and then by me. Afterall she is the matriach of our brood jennets and she knows she is numero uno.

Junebug's papers state that she is black with a cross but there is not a hint of a cross showing on her!! We will have her papers updated to reflect that.

Junebug has been bred to our newest spotted herdsire, Donkette Korral Kryptonite, for a foal due on November 5th, 2016. Don't even ask if this jennet is for sale. She is here to stay as long as I can care for her properly.

Junebug is the dam of the following foals:

1) Sunset Acres Astro, 2/15/02, black jack w/NLP;

2) Sunset Acres Unnamed, March, 2003, deceased jack, (delivered by c-section)
2) HHAA Black 'n' Blue Black 'n; Blue, aka Bruise8/09/08, black herd sire @ HAA;
3) HHAA Jealous Much, 4/06/10, spotted former herdsire and now a show gelding @ Half Ass Acres;

4) HHAA Mirror, Mirror, 4/23/12, black w/cross jennet w/NLP;

5) HHAA Takin' Names, 5/02/14, spotted gelding.

What a dark little doll she is. Her dam is a very nice 31 ¾" dark brown daughter of Top Gun. Her sire is 30 3/8" Little Buckaroo who is drafty and black with no cross. We purchased Ramona at The Great American Miniature Donkey Sale in Ohio July 28th, 2007. We are so pleased with her. She is as sweet as she can be. She was so tiny that we waited until she was nearly 4 years old to breed her. Ramona has been bred to Kryptonite for a foal due in November of 2016.

Ramona is the dam of the following foals:

1) HHAA Pull-String Toy, 4/15/10, Dark Brown Jennet w/NLP. (retained at HAA!)

Picabo was owned by our mentors, Ed & Linda Trimnell of Windcrest Acres, since she was a young foal and Linda considered her to be her best producing jennet. When Windcrest Acres went out of business due to health reasons Picabo was sold to Kathy Loudamy at K & K Ranch. Picabo produced many more champions while owned by Kathy and she would have never parted with her except that she was the hardest donkey to catch she had ever encountered. Since Kathy is usually always alone at the barn she offered her to me since my husband and I are both retired and we do all of our donkey chores together. I have admired Picabo and her offspring thoughout all the years I have been involved in donkeys and I jumped at the chance to own such a fantastic little spotted donkey. I thought I would have no trouble training Miss Picabo to easily be caught.

Day one of owning her: I kept her in a stall and small paddock and gave her a treat every time I passed her but only if she would allow me to put the halter on her. I must have repeated this lesson no less than 50 times that day. Late that afternoon I turned Picabo out in a larger pasture since I was going to be gone all the next day. About an hour later I went to her pasture just to see if I could catch her. Well....... she ran like the wind  before I even got within 30' of her!! She was so far away that she could not have heard me saying 'cookie, cookie' if I had used a megaphone. A cowboy with a 500' rope could not have lassoed her!! I called Kathy and told her I wanted my money back. Kathy promptly told me that Picabo was my 'diet & weight loss donkey' and she insisted I keep her so that I would be forced to lose weight. At this rate I should weigh about 100 lbs by this time next year. If you are ever this way please stop by for a visit and help me catch Miss Boo so I can worm her and do her little hooves occasionally. All help will be so appreciated. Just consider visiting Picabo and me instead of going to the gym. I will keep you posted on the continuing saga of  "Catch Me If You Can".

"Boo" has retained her great conformation through eleven foals and due to her refusal to be caught easily. She is square and drafty and she is a long time producer of show quality donkeys with her same outstanding build.

Thank you to The Randall Family for their expert assistance in handling Miss Boo during her photo shoot!! Now you can see why I love her even if she is hard to catch sometimes!

Boo is pastured with Kryptonite now for a foal due in 2017. The last date we observed her in season was 1/03/16.

Boo has produced the following foals:

1) Windcrest Little Trinket, 6/16/98, a show winning jennet;

2) Windcrest Little Chanelle, 6/02/00, spotted jennet, a show winner;

3) Windcrest Sky's The Limit, 3/29/01, 2002 ACOSA Grand National Jack;

4) Windcrest Over the Top, 8/22/02, Spotted Jack, ACOSA 2 & Under National Champion & ACOSA Reserve National Champion Jack;

5) Windcrest April Charm, 4/04/04, dark spotted jennet;.

6) Windcrest Destiny, her 2005 jack foal, and a full brother to April Charm;

7) KKR Tuff Enough, 4/06/07, dark spotted jack with blue eyes;

8) KKR Eight Belles, 8/16/08, gray jennet;

9) KKR Wise Guy, 9/6/10, spotted jack;

10) HHAA Whimsy, 5/21/12, brown jennet;

11) HHAA Bonafide, 4/22/14, spotted show quality gelding.

12) Boo's next foal is due in 2017.


Boo is no longer offered for sale.  Before she went to
Heaven someone I loved asked me to keep Boo forever.
And I will honor that promise as long as I have my health.

We fell in love with Stardance when we were in Texas visiting Itsy Bitsy Burro Co and we just had to have her. She is just as sweet as she is beautiful! Stardance stays black all year round. She doesn't turn brown even when left out in the sun. She is black as coal in the summertime or when body clipped. She is measuring under 30½" tall as well. We will take new photos and videos next spring after we body clip her.

We allowed Stardance to have a long rest and she has now been bred to Zoo for a foal due on January 17, 2017.

Stardance is the dam of the following foals:

1) HHAA Tiny Dancer, Dark Spotted Jennet, DOB 7/20/10- DOD 8/02/10 (Tiny Dancer had badly contracted tendons that the vets were unable to repair during her operation. They suggested that the humane thing to do was to put her down. It was beyond heartbreaking.)

2) HHAA Dance Much? (Tango), Black w/cross Jack w/NLP, DOB 8/02/13.

Beauty's name fits her well. She is an exceptional small black jenny with a lovely head. We are very excited to add Beauty to our herd but very sad that Jane Savage of Flight of Fancy Miniatures has now retired from the miniature donkey business. Jane has been a valuable asset to the miniature donkey world and a wonderful mentor to me. Thank you, Jane, for allowing your best to come and live at Half Ass Acres!

When Beauty arrived she was so much better than I could have ever expected. Plus her personality is as sweet as can be. Oh, how I love this jennet..she is as sweet as her full sister, Gidget, who we just recently sold to England. I am so happy to be able to replace her with her sister.

Beauty will be bred to Kryptonite for a foal due in 2017.


Beauty is the dam of the following foals:

1) Flight of Fancy Hawkeye, 6/15/04, smoky black jack;

2) Flight of Fancy Black Ice, 12/14/05, black jennet w/star;

3) Flight of Fancy Mystic, 10/13/07, black w/cross jennet;

4) Flight of Fancy Star Struck, 8/26/10, black jennet w/large star (now in our brood jennet band).

5) HHAA Double Dare, 5/01/13, black w/cross gelding w/intermediate nose.


 

~ The Jennets below this point will be resting in 2016 and will not be bred. ~

We are thrilled to have this tiny "knock- out" black jenny with a huge star added to our brood jennet band. She has a beautiful and very unusual “blue” eye. (although, as ADMS explains, it is technically a “grey” eye unlike the blue pinto eye).

We are very excited to add her to our herd but very sad that Jane Savage of Flight of Fancy Miniatures is now retiring from the miniature donkey business so that she and her husband will be free to travel around the world if they like. Jane has been a valuable asset to the miniature donkey world and a wonderful mentor to me. Thank you, Jane, for allowing your best to come and live at Half Ass Acres! Please don't ask me if I will sell this jennet. I want her to stay right here at Half Ass Acres. I have already been talked out of too many of my Flight of Fancy girls and I just don't want to part with anymore of them.

The updated photos above were taken June 9th, 2015, the day after Star Struck delivered her first foal. Her belly had been clipped for our vet to do an exterior ultrasound and she still has her long, winter, sunbleached coat. I will try to body clip her soon and take better updated photos and videos.

Note: If this donkey is ever sold Kelly Dehnel is promised the right of first refusal.

Star Struck is the dam of one foal:

1) Goody 2 Shoes, 6/08/15, few spot gelding.

LOOK WHAT SHOWED UP AT OUR FARM!!!!! Is she real or is she a stuffed donkey on wheels??

As all of you know we get very excited about our jennets foaling. We get both excited AND anxious when the jennet is a maiden. Ramona is one of the smallest jennets we own, and, for that reason, we waited well beyond her 3rd birthday to breed her. We chose Napoleon to be Ramona’s first “encounter” with a jack. Boy, are we pleased with that pairing.

Ramona basically spit herself out with this little girl. She is ever so tiny but has the biggest heart and personality you can imagine. She struts around wearing her thick dark brown coat, no light points, with head held so high you would think someone had a “string” around her neck taking their “pull-toy” for a stroll in the park.   It was unbelievable how perfectly balanced she looked immediately following her birth.  Joe and I were anxious to get her weight and height…..she was a 4 X 4 … 19 ½“ tall and weighed 19 ¼ lbs. She was about as big as a square stick of butter full of lots of sugar. She had all the ingredients of a square piece of delicious chocolate cake. Yum, Yum.. we could just smooch on her all day. Like a sweet piece of cake, we simply cannot get enough of “Pull- String Toy”. Thank you, Sandy Dorris, for thinking of the perfect name for her!!

Toy was pasture exposed to Brick for a foal due in 2015. We last observed her in season on 4/30/14. She has been confirmed safe in foal by exterior ultrasound by our vet. This will be her first foal. She is now under the barn cam in the first stall and paddock with Star Struck. Both of these girls started 'bagging up' in early April. You can click this link to see them

Toy is the dam of one foal:

Glorianna had so many wonderful foals for us and this little girl is another one we simply love. She is a very dark one with no light points and she has the cutest personality. She was making squeaking sounds while she was being born and has never stopped. When we call her or she see us coming she almost sounds like a little baby pig squeaking. Be sure to watch her video on YouTube and you will see and hear what I mean.

Tyger is very petite and small in statue. She has the best of her sire's and dam's attributes and wears her progeny well. We feel she will remain small.

This little gal was named by Joe. He does not get to name many of our foals since I am always picking out names. We decided he would name her and he immediately named her Paper Tyger. Tyger is so full of personality and adds so much excitement to our pasture. She is always running around sticking her nose into everything and making the cutest little sounds. She walks and talks, she runs and talks, and she stands while you pet her and talks. What a unique little girl. No, she is not a pig, she only makes piglet sounds.

Photos and videos were taken on August 19th, 2015, a few days after she had her first foal, so she is a little out of shape.

Paper Tyger is the dam of one foal:

1) HHAA Paper Doll House, 8/15/15, Dark Jennet w/NLP

In the wee hours of the morning Bessie gave birth to the prettiest, no light point, jennet. Her color still has us guessing from time to time but after taking and looking at many pictures it has been decided she is very dark brown with no light points. I must say her adoring personality captured our attention and our hearts and once again we were “smitten” by another beautiful foal born to us at Half Ass Acres. Nothing would do but we name this beautiful little girl for what had taken place in our hearts. We were “smitten” with love for her.

Smitten wears her progeny well, taking the best from her gene pool and sporting around the pastures holding her head up high as if to say, “Surely you are “smitten” with my beauty”…and she is right. She is as stocky as she can be and stands so straight and tall. Her bite is perfect, her legs are perfect, and she is a perfect match for us.

We would love to have you visit our farm so you, too, can be “smitten” with the charm this little girl has to offer. She comes with that guarantee for sure. All the hugs and kisses she will give you are free!

Smitten has been body clipped and new photos and videos were taken on September 15th, 2015, one week after giving birth to her very first foal. Her video is in progress now.
