If you see a donkey
you like be sure to send us a deposit to hold it so you won't miss out! I
cannot hold a donkey without a deposit. Sorry but too many broken promises
in the past. Discounts given when purchasing more than one donkey. Donkeys are much happier when paired up. All of our donkeys come with registration certificates, a current negative coggins report, a health certificate if sold
out of state, complete health records, a hard cover book including all records
and 8 x 10 color photographs, small left and right photos for registration transfer
or update if needed, a personalized dvd with all high resolution photos and videos taken of
your donkey, an exclusive Half Ass Acres T-shirt (not available anywhere else!), a 2014 Donkey Calendar, and a brand new halter and lead
rope. All of our donkeys are vaccinated against the following: West Nile, Eastern/Western Encephalomyelitis, Tetanus, Rhino EHV4 & EHV 1, and Influenza Strains A1, A2, Prague 56, Ky '92, Ky '97, Ky 98 & Ky 99. We do offer significant discounts on package deals or if you have previously
purchased a donkey from us. All of our donkeys comply with the new Miniature
Donkey Registry rules by being microchipped.
Due to a serious family illness that will require my time and attention to be out of town in the coming months Joe and I have decided to drastically reduce our herd size. It is with great regret that I am parting with many of our beloved donkeys. I want them all to go to homes that will give them the care and attention that they are accustomed to having. It is going to be hard to part with these donkeys but it has come to a point in my life where my family is more important and our priorities have been rearranged.

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 delivered a dark jack with no light points sired by HHAA Jealous Much on 5/01/13 @ 3:36am. Deuce has been weaned, gelded and is at his new home now. Beauty will be allowed to rest through 2014/2015.
We are only offering Black Beauty for sale because we have retained her daughter, Star Struck. Black Beauty has produced many outstanding foals throughout her breeding career. She is selling as open as this is her resting year. She is up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile, de-wormings, and hoof trims. She has a negative coggins report dated 8/29/14.

as honey and twice as nice! This little girl has everyone buzzing at Half Ass Acres including
the bees. Glow and Firefly sure knew what they were doing making this little beauty. She
is so full of personality that she has the entire farm awaiting her grand entrance to the
outside paddock on the first sunny day. You can almost see and hear all the other donkeys
talking about the new GIRL on the farm and wondering what all the buzz is about over this
new foal. She is going to knock their socks off first day out!
Bee has it all….compact
little body, heavy bones, straight legs, perfect bite, heads up attitude, unique cinnamon
color, and a tiny little star.
Check back often for updates on Bee. Watch for photos of her
as she buzzes around playng with all her new friends on our farm. bzzzzz....bzzzzzz......bzzzzzz
If you missed her birth click here
for a replay. Foaling video compliments of a fellow marestarer.
Photos and videos above were taken on September 6th, 2010, with the help of my great friends, Dena Wilson and Maria and Katie Randall!
We will let Bee rest through 2014/2015.
Bee Sting is being offered for sale because we are no longer breeding for reds and we do not have a red jack to cross with her. Bee Sting is up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile and Botulism, de-wormings, and hoof trims. She has a negative coggins report dated 8/29/14. Like all of our donkeys she is friendly and easy to catch and handle. She is selling as open as this is her resting year.

Click MDR sticker to see Slipper's complete pedigree!
been trying to purchase Lady Slipper from Flight of Fancy Miniatures ever
since I first laid eyes on her and fell in love. She is a grand daughter
of the well known Jenny Sam of Bell E Acres. Lady Slipper is very tiny and
stocky. Somehow we talked Jane out of her along with her 2009 jennet foal,
Aphrodite's Pink Nitie. Nitie is a replica of her mom only even nicer. That is a sign of a great brood jennet when they produce as nice or nicer than themselves.
Slippers was vaccinated on 2/21/14 against the following: West Nile, Eastern/Western Encephalomyelitis, Tetanus, Rhino EHV4 & EHV 1, and Influenza Strains A1, A2, Prague 56, Ky '92, Ky '97, Ky 98 & Ky 99. So she is up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile & Botulism which she was also vaccinated for on 2/25/14. She has a negative coggins report dated 3/21/14. Slippers has been DNA typed at the University of Kentucky and all her information is in her records and on file at the University.
Click MDR sticker to see Howington's complete pedigree!
I had to have another gelding when my great niece, Emily, took over ownership of my Mookie Man. It was a hard decision but we finally decided on Howington since he previously belonged to me as a weanling and I was familiar with his personality and luckily he was offered for sale. He has a wonderful show record in halter and color with his prior owners. A big 'Thank You!' to Dana Rathbun of Castlewood Farms for allowing us to purchase Howington. They had a great 2011 show season together!
We purchased Howington in September of 2011 and started training him for performance on June 19th of 2012. Howington is now being driven a minimum of six hours per week and usually much more (although we missed nearly two months when I was not allowed to drive by my doctor's orders). It was hard to keep him in halter shape while putting this many hours on him but he was still continuing to always be in the ribbons. Howington is quite a handful because he is a very sensitive soul but I love a challenge and I am hoping he will be competing in performance classes in 2014!
Howington is not going to be quite stout enough to be my next show gelding unless I go on a serious diet or he grows more. He just does not have the get up and go that is required for a performance donkey. Howington has well over 100 hours in harness and pulling a cart but he is only for a very experienced driver. Howington is very nervous under harness and really just wants to be a pet. He is up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile, de-wormings and hoof trims. He has a negative coggins dated 3/21/14.
I have started to sell Howington several times and backed out because I am so attached to him. If you think this donkey might be for you...better grab him up fast before I change my mind again.
Following is a list of Howington's show winnings:

Click MDR sticker to see Showdown's complete pedigree!
Co-owned by Rocking 615 Ranch and Half Ass Acres. This fantastic gelding is a grand son of Half Ass Acres Harlequin Jack, bred and born here at Half Ass Acres.
Showdown won the Two & Under Halter Jacks/Gelding class and stood Reserve Champion Halter Jack/Gelding at the Lincoln County Fair on 9/08/13. Showdown also was 2nd in a very large spotted color class that day.
Showdown finished the show year as the official Reserve Champion Yearling and Reserve Champion Spotted Color donkey of Tennessee. We are only offering Showdown for sale because we now finally have geldings of our own bloodlines that are large enough to compete. We have a limited amount of time to work and fit donkeys for the show ring, therefore, we are offering Showdown for sale. He is much too nice to just sit in our pasture because we are spending all of our time with other donkeys. Showdown has a negative coggins report dated 3/21/14. He is up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile, hoof trimmings and dewormings. Showdown is a sweet but high strung donkey so we think he would be best with an experienced handler if you plan to show him.

has a beautiful tiny head and a nice round rear all in a small package.
Very hard to find in a spot. She is one of our few gray and white spotted
jennets. Roxanne is being offered as a barren jennet. She has been with our jack all summer and has not settled in foal. We last observed her in season on 9/22/14. She has had one foal in her lifetime in 2009. She aborted her last foal on 1/26/11. We want her to go to a nice pet home and live out the rest of her life not trying to be a mom anymore. She is very friendly and up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile, hoof trimmings and de-wormings. She appears to be healthy in every way. Roxanne is friendly and easy to catch and handle.
