Little Bridget, 32 ¾"
Grand Sire: Windcrest Little Red Man, 31" Dark Red
Grand Dam: Windcrest Red Beau's Robin, 32" Brown
seems every time we have a foal I say, "this one is the prettiest one ever!" We have been
so blessed with so many gorgeous foals this year and each one is so special and unique.
Rocket is another one that fits this description.
In keeping with the Patriotic
week of 9/11 we wanted to name this beautiful little jennet in remembrance of that day in
history. May we never forget what happened the day that has forever changed our country
and may "God continue to bless America."
Can you believe we missed Rocket's birth?
Yes, we left for only a few minutes to run get dinner just two miles down the road and our
phone started ringing the minute we sat down to eat. The Mare Stare family was doing their
usual outstanding job of notifying us that we had a jennet in labor. I rushed out of the
restaurant, leaving Joe behind, and was home in 3 minutes. This outstanding little red jennet,
Rocket, was on the stall floor greeting me and letting me know she was just fine and perfect
in every way.
After quickly cleaning the stall I ran back to the restaurant to pick
up Joe and we both came back to enjoy the beauty of Rocket, our newly born little girl.
Bridget has always been a jennet we loved and we even owned her at one time when
she, herself, was a tiny little girl. When we recently had the opportunity to purchase her
again we did and are so happy to have her back with us at our farm. Rocket is the same beautiful
color as Bridget and is the "spitting image" of her mother. You see she, too, is perfect
in every way. She is stocky, perfect bite, straight legs, fantastic head, and that friendly
personality that we all like to experience in our donkeys.
Rocket lights up our
eyes as we admire her beauty, lights up our hearts with her endearing personality, and lights
up our farm as she mingles with the other donkeys that are quickly becoming her friends.
Our patriotic little girl will wave true in our hearts and at our farm forever!! (that's
right, she is 'Not For Sale' at this time!). I know we can't keep them all but we are going
to wait for the last two foals to be born before we make the decision of who we keep and
who we offer for sale.

Rocket is about as stocky as they come and she has a nice round rear end and a beautiful head. She has been a pet her entire life and would never be offered for sale if it were not for her owner suddenly and unexpectantly passing away. She is easy to catch and handle. She is ready to breed to the jack of your choice as she is now at the perfect age to breed.
Rocket had her hooves trimmed on 3/20/12 and she will be up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile and de-wormings when she leaves for her new home. She has been microchipped and her registration papers are in order except for her three year old height update and we have printed left and right photos for that to be sent in now when she is transferred into your name as the new owner. She measured slightly less than 32.25" tall and she is not going to grow any taller.
Rocket is best friends with Eight Belles (below) and we will offer a discount if you purchase them together.
