Welcome to Shorecrest Farm's Miniature Donkeys!


 

Miniature donkeys are herd animals and they need the companionship of other herd type animals. While it is possible to get them to bond with horses, goats, and even cattle, the best companion for a donkey is another donkey, therefore, our preference is placing our donkeys into homes having at least one other donkey as a companion. We very, very rarely allow one of our donkeys to go to a home without other donkeys. Please keep this in mind when inquiring about any of our donkeys!


 

People have often asked us what the fascination is with donkeys. Well, the answer to us is their wonderful personalities. They are so friendly and easy to handle, are safe to be around, and are less expensive to keep than other equines. Miniature donkeys are very trustworthy around children, the elderly and the handicapped. They are easily trained to pull a cart, can be shown, and can even be ridden by small children. They are the perfect backyard pet!

If you are interested in any of our donkeys, please call or email with any questions you may have. All inquiries are promptly answered. If you are looking for something special, contact us as we may have others available who are not currently listed here. Delivery is available in most circumstances for an added fee, or we'd be happy to meet you part way. Due to their sociable nature, please note that we will not allow one lone donkey to go to a home that does not offer at least one other donkey as a companion!

Dark Brown & White Spotted Jack
DOB 10/16/17

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo,29½" Dark Brown/White Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot


Dam:  Rader's Daisy, 33' Brown/Black/White Spotted
      Grand Sire:  Trotting C Maverick, 32" Black/White Spotted
      Grand Dam: Maxwell Ridge Whiteney, 32½" Black w/Cross

This little guy is just striking. He is such a little carbon copy of his dad, not only with his looks but with his laid back personality. Elton stands out in the pasture with his bold dark spots (dark spots are my favorite!). If he had been a jennet, he would be staying here with 100% certainty! Elton is searching for his forever people. While his looks and pedigree could certainly put him in the "future herdsire" category, we've opted to offer him as a pet so that he can enjoy his future as a gelding with other donkey buddies. He would make an awesome stand out in the crowd show donkey for someone! Elton spends his days running around with his BFF's and half brothers, Elroy and Elliot. He would very much enjoy going his new forever home with one (or both!) of these handsome boys! Elton can be weaned late February. And, as with all of our babies, Elton will be registered prior to leaving our farm and cannot go to a new home without having at least one other donkey as a friend waiting for him there! Come see this beautiful boy, you'll want to take him home with you!

Price: $650

Light Red & White Spotted Jack
DOB 9/02/17

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo,29½" Dark Brown/White Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot


Dam:  Shorecrests Sweet Caroline,32½" Gray
      Grand Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½"Light Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  KWA Faunas Peep, 32" Brown/Gray

All of the babies we've had this year out of Turbo have been special, and Elroy is no exception! I really don't know for certain what to call his color. At birth and currently, his coat is a very light "red", almost pink in color. He's got a few small white patches under that baby fuzz, a white blaze face, and a partial white "sock" on his right rear leg. He's marked more like a horse than a donkey. Elroy is super, super sweet. He loves attention and he loves playing with his brothers, Elliot and Elton. While Elroy will certainly mature tiny given his birth height of a mere 19", and while he has excellent conformation so far mixed with the perfect personality, color, and pedigree, we've decided to sell him as a pet and not a future herdsire prospect. He is already bonded with both of his brothers, and would very much enjoy going to a new home with one (or both!) of them. As with all of our babies, he will be registered prior to leaving for his new home and he must go to a home having at least one other donkey as a buddy. Elroy can be weaned mid to late January. Come meet and fall in love with this little guy!

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo,29½" Dark Brown/White Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot


Dam:  Shorecrests Midnight Saranade, 33¼" Light Red
      Grand Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½"Light Red
      Grand Dam:  KiTerra's Little Lacy, 33" Gray

Sweet as they come, Elliot is looking for a forever home! He is another Turbo baby we are so very proud of. Elliot came in with a 20½" birth height and has the sweetest personality. He adores attention and he loves spending his days running around the pasture with his brothers, Elroy and Elton (to be posted soon!). As with all of our babies, Elliot must go to a home having at least one other donkey as a buddy. He would very much enjoy taking either (or both!) of his brothers with him to join his new family! Elliot can be weaned at the very end of January/beginning of February. Don't miss out of this sweet boy!

Frosted Red/White Spotted Jennet
DOB 6/18/17

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo,29½" Dark Brown/White Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot


Dam:  Shorecrests Jodie, 32½" Brown
      Grand Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½"Light Red
      Grand Dam:  Boone's Little Betty Jane, 31" Gray/White Spot

This little beauty has the most unusual foal coat. These photos were taken at just one day old before any sun bleaching occurred. For now I'm calling it a light red spot. There are patches that are more of a frosted color. Really not sure what she will turn out like when mature! We are currently planning to retain beautiful little Eliza, but if that should change, we will update her pricing below. We expect Eliza to mature small, and with any luck she will keep not only her gorgeous coloring, but her perfect conformation as well. She is another one of those "whole package" foals that Turbo seems to be very good at giving us so far! NOT FOR SALE!

Gray Jack w/NLP
DOB 6/18/17

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo,29½" Dark BrownWhite Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot

Dam:  TST Dolly, 34" Gray *MSF (masked spotting factor)
      Grand Sire:  Untraced
      Grand Dam:  Untraced

The lone little boy so far this foaling season! Eli is very handsome, loving his dark points and even more so, loving his super friendly personality. He's got lots of zoom-zoom these days, making it hard for mom to keep up with him! Eli was born on father's day (along with another foal, Eliza...it was a very busy day!). He will make an awesome pet for someone out there. He would pair up nicely with any of the listed jennet foals, or we would also be open to selling him as a pair with his mom. This would allow you to have him a few months early instead of waiting for weaning time in late October. If interested in the pair, contact me and I will give you more details on mom.

Gone to a new home!

Dark Brown Jennet
DOB 5/25/17

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo, 29½" Dark BrownWhite Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot

Dam:  D.W.E. Ivy, 33¼" Dark Brown
      Grand Sire:  Windcrest Skeeter, 29" Brown
      Grand Dam:  D.W.E. Lena, 33" Gray-Dun


Elizabeth is a beautiful dark chocolate brown foal. Her mom is mother to our past herdsire, Ivan. Ivy always has chunky, correct babies. One of Ivy's daughter's, Izzabelle, is one of our favorite brood jennets. I expect Elizabeth to follow in her sister and mom's hoofprints and turn out to be a wonderful brood jennet. Until then, she will make a very friendly addition to your farm. She will be microchipped and registered prior to leaving our farm, and can be weaned in late September.

Gone to a new home!

Sire:  Shorecrests Turbo,  30¼" Very Dk Brown/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  LN Good Spot Glo,29½" Dark BrownWhite Spot
      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spot

      Grand Sire:  Sunset Acres Sir Prize, 31½" Black W/Cross, NLP
      Grand Dam: The Elms She's Gloriass 32¾" Dark Red


This pretty jennet may be a keeper... Just loving her dark spots! Another super Turbo baby and out of mom GiGi who seems to pass along her Sunset Acres genes in her babies. Nice and correct, color, pedigree. Elvira is a little superstar! Pricing her for now, but she may just wind up staying here in the end! Please forgive the pasture shots. White babies are tough to keep clean! Elvira will be microchipped and registered prior to leaving our farm. She can be weaned in late September.

Gone to a new home!

Gray & White Spotted Jennet

Sire:  Shorecrests Ivan,  32" Dark Brown
      Grand Sire:  Windcrest Java, 31¼" Dark Brown
      Grand Dam:  D.W.E. Ivy, 33¼" Dark Brown

Dam:  Shorecrest's Little Miss Gypsy, 32¼" Light Red/Gray & White Spot
      Grand Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  Windcrest Miss Betsy, 33" Gray/White Spot

Ella is our last "Ivan" baby. She's a little chunk, like most Ivan babies have been. Ella is the whole package -- she's got the color, small size, conformation, personality, and pedigree. She would make a wonderful future brood jennet, show donkey, or just an awesome family pet. This pretty girl will be microchipped and registered prior to leaving our farm.

      Grand Dam:  Lucky Star's Quilted Rose, 34" Gray/White Spotted

      Grand Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½"Light Red (Sorrel)
      Grand Dam:  KWA Faunas Peep, 32" Brown/Gray


This tiny little girl never made it to our for sale page last fall. We had plans to keep her but her small size makes us a bit nervous to retain for breeding purposes. At 10 months old, she stands at just 27 inches, smaller than some of our weanlings! Oakley was the first foal we had out of our spotted jack, Turbo. We are very happy with her friendly personality, small size, color. She is a sweetheart and it will be hard to see her go! Oakley will be microchipped and registered prior to leaving our farm. She's ready to go anytime and would pair up nicely with any of our other babies offered for sale. Please call or email for more information or to come see Oakley in person.

Gone to a new home!
