Luke just arrived at Half Ass Acres. He is just as his name implies....cool as can be....nothing rattles him. He just turned two and he has been started by David Sessum with in-hand trail work. He has been shown at several shows and placed very well in halter and performance classes. He has the makings to be an outstanding show donkey. He is very, very sweet and friendly. He is up to date on all vaccinations including West Nile and Rabies and all other required vaccinations. He has a current negative coggins report. We purchased Luke to resell to make money to finish our indoor arena but we are seriously thinking about keeping him for ourselves. We also have Luke's two full sisters, Lazy J Elvira and Lazy J Sunday's Surprise.  We will be posting their photos and videos also very soon. Luke's video is in progress now.

Update December 2016!! It was just announced that Pow Wow is the ACOSA Year End High Point Halter Gelding of 2016. We are so proud of our boy. Thank you to The American Councel of Spotted Asses for presenting this award.

Pow Wow has had limited showing in NMDA shows but he is only four points away from his Excellence in Halter.

Pow Wow was also the 2015 High Point Halter Gelding of Tennessee and the Reserve High Point Color Donkey of Tennessee. (defeated by his stablemate, Ch Chime). He was also the 2015 High Point Best Matched Pair Donkey along with his sire, MGF Prime Minister.

This super nice gelding is a grand son of our long time main herd sire, Peppercorn Jack, who was gelded and retired years ago. A big 'thank you!' to Kay Allen at Blessed Assurance Farm for allowing us to change this gelding's name and also add our own farm to his name. We are going to be campaigning this gelding heavily on the show circuit and Kay graciously let us advertise our farm at the same time that we promoted her breeding. We had sold all of our taller jennets so we were unable to produce a stout gelding of this caliber. In the meantime we have purchased a few taller jennets in the hopes that we can produce our own gelding as nice as he is one day in the future.

Update! 1st time shown...2nd out of 8 entries at the ACOSA Nationals on July 11th, 2013, and the next day on July 12th Wow was 2nd out of 14 entries in Color! There were two judges in this class and both judges awarded him second place. We were unable to show in NMDA halter at this show as his papers had not yet returned from ADMS.

Update! 2nd time shown...1st in halter and 3rd in color!

Update! 3rd time shown...1st in halter and 3rd in color again!

Update! 4th time shown...1st in halter and 1st in color and Grand Champion Jack/Gelding

Update! 5th time shown...1st in color and 3rd in halter!

Pow Wow has started his 2015 show season with a bang by winning second in a huge color class at The Great Celebration Mule & Donkey Show in July. Judge Abrams placed him first and Judge Cochran placed him 3rd. His stablemate Ch Chime and Katie Randall were first.

Pow Wow was 1st at the Bedford County Fair in Halter Geldings 2 Yrs. & Over. There were ten entries in his class.

His new photos and videos above were taken on July 20th, 2015, with the expert handling of Katie Randall. Oh how I love Pow Wow..what a sweet and agreeable donkey he is. He is one of a kind. You could not ask for a nicer attitude on a donkey. He just is no trouble at all. Don't I wish they all were like Pow Wow.

Shimmy is one of the dearest and sweetest jennets we own. We purchased her sight unseen and have loved her from the minute we first saw her get off the transport truck. Her demure stature and her stocky body type are rare. When we decided to breed her we made sure that we used our smallest jack, Pepper, to be the one to service this little jennet. Now we know it was definitely the RIGHT choice.

As always we were waiting with baited breath for Shimmy to have her very first foal. Being such a tiny little jennet, we were on constant vigil for any of the first signs of labor. It was a good thing we did and we were with her the instant she went into labor. As you may have seen, if watching Mare Stare, Shimmy had a “red bag” delivery. That is something a breeder always dreads to see or hear for that matter, but with quick action by Joe, he was able to quickly cut open the bag and get this precious little boy out.

Since the date was 10/4/10, my good friend, Dena, suggested naming him Ten-Four and calling him Roger. We did exactly that except we lengthened his barn name to Roger That instead of just Roger….it fits him perfectly to this day. Roger is the smallest foal we have ever had at Half Ass Acres. He weighed 15 ½ pounds and stood only 17 ½ inches tall (short). He was like holding a tiny stuffed doll and he immediately owned our hearts. We did not let him out of the barn for several days since he was so small. Shimmy was such a fantastic first time mother and really wanted to keep him all to herself right after she gave birth to him. I can understand why……”I still want to keep him all to myself.”

Enough time has passed now that we are letting Shimmy and Ten-Four have more access to the paddocks but still keep a watchful eye out for both of them due to their smallness in size. Ten-Four’s risky birth situation did not have one bad effect on him. He is as normal as “apple pie” and JUST AS SWEET! There are no written or spoken words to describe him to you. It takes seeing him in person to appreciate his “cute factor”.

We Praise the Lord for sending him to us, for Joe’s quick response to his birthing needs, and simply for the Miracle of Birth at Half Ass Acres. Please call to set an appointment to visit our tiny little treasure. You will definitely agree he’s exceptional.

Below is a link to an instructional video taken of a red bag delivery. It gives a great visual of what it looks like and how to handle the situation.

Permission was given by owner to post. Their filly is doing great.

Update! 6/3/11: Roger was gelded by our vet, Dr. Greg Harris! He is now our ambassador/mascot donkey for Half Ass Acres! Even though Roger is the smallest donkey on our farm we made the decision to geld him as he 'toes out' on his front legs and we did not want to perpetuate that conformational fault into the gene pool of miniature donkeys.  We have turned down thousands of dollars for little Roger. Roger is here to stay!! I have had more fun with Roger than I have with any other donkey in my life. The only way Roger would ever be sold is if someone was rich enough to pay off our farm, the extra acres we bought next door, our new trailer and my future indoor arena I am going to have soon. Otherwise Roger will live out his life at Half Ass Acres and you can then just try to pry him out of my dead hands. When Roger goes...I go!!

2011 Tennessee Donkey ASSociation's High Point Ambassador!Roger was the 2011 Tennessee Donkey ASSociation's Champion High Point Ambassador Donkey. He tied for this award with his own personal donkey, Soldier, and his stablemate, Lightfoot Lee, owned by Dena Wilson.

Reserve Champion High Point Ambassador Donkey for Tennessee!We were not even trying to win an award in 2012 but Roger was named the Reserve Champion High Point Ambassador Donkey for Tennessee at the end of the year. We were so thrilled that Roger won this award by just doing what he loves to do...entertaining people with his adorable cuteness!

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

Mookie was the 2015 High Point Youth Donkey in Tennessee for his exhibitor, Katie Randall. Mookie has had very limited showing in NMDA shows but he has still earned enough points to be over one third of the way towards his excellence in performance in driving and in-hand.

Mookie is a half brother to Stonegate Acres Solar Eclipse, a National High Point Perfomance Gelding and the 2005 NMDA High Point Gelding of the Year owned and shown by Kathy Loudamy at K & K Ranch in Texas and just recently purchased by us. Mookie has a beautiful head and is a great little driving gelding. He is a beautiful mover and can really extend his trot. He isn't like a lot of driving donkeys that just go faster instead of truly extending their trot. He was trained by Wayne Lyon at Stonegate Acres in Canada and shown very briefly in 2009 by Kathy Loudamy at K&K Ranch. He was Reserve Champion Halter Gelding at the Texas Shoot Out in Bryan, Texas in June 2009. Our great niece, Emily, showed Mookie in youth events in 2011 & 2012.  They attended three shows for the 2011 show season and did quite well together as a team. Emily now has her very own gelding to show in 2013, Stonegate Acres Solar Eclypse. See our show results for more details!!

2011 Tennessee Donkey ASSocations High Point Harness Gelding and Reserve High Point Solid Color! Mookie was the 2011 Tennessee Donkey ASSociation's Champion High Point Harness Gelding and Reserve High Point Solid Color Champion in our first year of showing him!

Mookie won the following awards for 2012...our second season of showing him. We finally bonded and hit our groove! It is such a joy to get this close to your donkey. Something that does not happen overnight. In addition to all of this Mookie was the donkey my great niece, Emily Batty, showed to win 2012 Reserve High Point Junior Youth. We are so proud of you both!

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

Stonegate Acres Solar Eclipse, was a National High Point Perfomance Gelding in his younger years and the 2005 NMDA High Point Gelding of the Year when he was owned and shown by Kathy Loudamy at K & K Ranch in Texas. He had two very successful show seasons for his next owner, Julie Jones, at JF Ranch in Washington. He has so many awards that they are too numerous to mention and no one has kept up with them all. Solar has now arrived at Half Ass Acres for his forever home. Photos of Solar in performance in his video are compliments of Kathy Loudamy. Solar turns many different colors throughout the year but if he is kept out of the sun his color goes from a dark gray color to dark brown to almost black. Solar is so laid back and safe that my great niece, Emily, has made him her show gelding. Solar does not get in a hurry about anything and just moseys along. This makes him ideal for a youth. Emily and Solar are a great team. Solar has a heart of gold and we completely trust him with our precious Emily.

Update! First show for Emily and Solar and they brought home four blues....Halter Gelding, Youth In-Hand Jumping, Youth Pleasure Driving, and Youth In-Hand Trail! Solar was 1st out of 7 donkeys in halter and 5th out of 15 in color. Emily and Solar were awesome together! Solar also won the blue in Adult In-Hand Trail, Adult In-Hand Jumping and Coon Jumping. We knew Solar was going to be the perfect youth donkey for our Emily. He took care of our precious great niece and for the first time my heart was not in my throat watching her show. Solar is a one in a million donkey. Solar has a home here forever!

Update! Emily and Solar were Reserve High Point Youth at The Tennessee State Fair September 2013! What a way to finish the 2013 Show Season! We are so proud of our great niece, Emily, and her success with her new gelding, Solar.

Update. Emily is no longer showing Solar as she is to busy with beauty pageants but Solar is here to stay. I could never replace a gelding as safe as Solar. You will have to wait for me to have a terminal illness or die before Solar will ever be for sale.

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

Much a Man was sired by our former herd sire, Jealous Much, and out of a brood jennet that we had previsously sold. We loved what this combination produced so much that we purchased mom and baby back. Manly has been gelded and has been added to our show string. He is Roger's best friend and pal so I cannot ever sell Roger's buddy.

Update! Manly was Reserve Junior Champion Donkey at his first show, NMDA Music City in July 2016. He also tied for Reserve High Point Pre-Green Donkey. We are very proud of Manly and Katie. Manly was quite the handful when Katie started training him but she would not give up although I told her to turn him back out in the pasture and spend her time on another donkey. Manly and Katie have bonded and we expect great things from these two in the future.

Thank you Katie for not giving up on this fine gelding.
