"Note"


Li'l Angels will not be breeding for 2016. We are putting all efforts into enjoying the beloved donkeys we have and taking time to follow up on donkeys we have sold and where they are now. We are responsible for what we put on this earth, the donkey population needs a break and needs our help to find forever homes. Please join our efforts and reward the donkeys.

We are so grateful for having found such joy in owning donkeys we are ready for the next chapter and that is to give back to them! We are taking a break from breeding indefinately to open our farm as a foster facility to a great rescue run by kind souls with a mission. Visit www.safeharborsanctuary.org to see all of the animals up for adoption. Fostering can bring such reward! Please read the foster guidelines on their site and give it some thought. Open a space in your heart, there is room I promise!


On our farm, our foals begin kindergarten before they are weaned. They are handled often, but not spoiled (well, maybe just a little). They learn to pick up their feet for trimming and they must learn to lead and have good manners when they are weaned. All of our Miniature Donkeys are registered. Each donkey is sold with a halter and lead, current coggins and complete health records of vaccinations and de-worming, and registration papers. Most importantly, each donkey is LOVED as though it were the only donkey on the farm! You will notice the difference when you take one of ours home!

Our donkeys are priced according to conformation and overall quality. We honestly and accurately represent our donkeys. 

We invite you to view our Nursery page.  Please feel free to inquire about any of our foals.

E-mail us at lilangelsdonkeysjenny@gmail.com to inquire about donkeys for sale. A deposit of $500 will hold any of our donkeys that are for sale.

We do not train outside donkeys, since we have so many of our own, but we have raised and trained many donkeys who have been shown successfully by others (see  Awards page). When you purchase a show donkey from us, we are happy to help you learn how to show, and work with you and your donkey. We do not charge for this service.

We train performance geldings and we usually have at least one available. Please contact us if you are interested in driving.

After much discussion and heavy persuasion from my husband, I have also decided to offer a few jennets for sale. These jennets are proven in the show ring and/or proven producers of top quality foals. We will hand breed any jennet purchased to Indiana Jones as they are all great pairings for him. A $500 fee is added to the jennet if he is not already bred to them.

Please contact me if interested in any jennets not on my for sale page. Prices are firm.

Thank you,

Jenny

"ATTENTION PLEASE!!"


2014 was a blessed and wonderful year for us and so many! I want to wrap it up with a bright and promising future for the rescue I dearly love. I became a volunteer this year for Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary when we moved to Tennessee. My passion for taking care of the animals we put on this earth took over my needs to breed quality miniature donkeys. While I feel good breeders are necessary to uphold the standards for the Miniature Donkeys in conformation, temperament, and showing purposes, it's my time to give back to the donkeys and animals already on this earth.

From now until the end of the year I will offer my best quality young jennets to ethical and respectable breeders. These girls are destined for the show ring and are my pride and joy. I feel it's important to make room for more foster animals and want to pass on my girls to breeders passionate on having "the best" in conformation.

100% OF THE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SAFE HARBOR SANCTUARY!!!

It cost the rescue an average of $250 for each animal we bring in to foster on vetting. My sales will go to vetting and gelding fees for the rescue. This is a great opportunity for the breeders to give back and gain fabulous donkeys at the same time.

 

RC Cola
RC Cola up for adoption
RC Cola up for adoption

Breed: Dutch Warmblood

Gender: Gelding

Age: 22

RC Cola and Moon Pie came to Safe Harbor from abandonment. They were locked inside of a barn, standing in almost 2 feet of manure, and their “owner” moved out of state and left them there. These sweet horses were so glad for their rescue!

RC was adopted, but due to an unfortunate situation he and Moon Pie both returned to rescue. RC wasn’t moving properly on return and his re-intake vet exam revealed an approximately 3 to 4 month old pelvis fracture and stifle injury. He will be radiographed again after about 3 months to check healing, but this means RC is not ride-able. He cannot bear weight; not even a child on lead line at this time. RC is also being treated for a puncture wound that was found on his re-entry to rescue. It appears to be from a T-Post, and he is being treated with topical and internal antibiotics. This should clear up safely very soon. RC is due for a re-check in 3 months. After his re-check we may find he is sound for a lead line work with children, but we are not sure. He is a gentle and kind soul who was used in his prime for showing and deserves a home where he can be treated with respect and dignity for the remainder of his years.

RC IS NOT ADOPTABLE. We are seeking a FOREVER FOSTER for him. What is a Forever Foster? You will be able to care for RC as if he is your own horse. He would live with you, and you would not ever have to be concerned with him being placed for adoption, and losing your best friend to a forever home. We would ask that you commit to providing the basics for him. Feed, Hay, Stall Shavings, Fly Spray. Everything else is on us. We’ll take care of his farrier appointments and the cost for that. His annual vetting, checkups, any medications, major medical, and eventually euthanasia and burial cost..those items would all be covered by Safe Harbor. Forever Fostering is providing a sanctuary home for a horse that is in dire need of love without the risk of ever having unforseen large medical costs. We are requiring a minimum of 3 acres of pasture for him. RC is NOT an easy keeper. He will require soaked senior feed, and in an ideal situation someone able to feed him twice daily. His diet in rescue is 5 pounds of Senior feed in the morning and 5 Pounds in the evening. Fencing must be a minimum of 48? high, and cannot be barbed wire. Board fence is preferred, but electric will be ok as well.

RC is a senior warm blood looking for his forever foster home. He loves attention .

Wilma
Wilma, for adoption

Breed: Spotted Standard Donkey

Gender: Jennet

Age: 4

Wilma is a moderately shy standard spotted donkey. She came to rescue from neglect–a home that could not afford proper feed, maintenance or hoof care. Wilma actually miscarried the night before we got them to rescue, and her premature foal did not survive and was found deceased on arrival. Fred is her son from a prior pregnancy.

Wilma warms up quickly, but is a little timid of strangers. She is coming around very, very quickly on her socialization. The ideal home for Wilma will have another jennet she can bond with so she can have a close friend who is also trusting of humans. Wilma’s adoption fee is $250.

Hee Haw
Hee Haw, standard donkey up for adoption

Breed: Standard Donkey

Gender: Gelding

Age: <1 Year

Heehaw is a shy little guy. He is Annabelle’s son, and came to rescue with his mom. Heehaw is a typical young donkey gelding. He is playful and rambunctious, and will thrive with another young donkey to play with in his forever home. Standard grey gelding . Eight months old and sweet as pie.

Heehaw is accustomed to being around other donkeys and horses. Annabelle was not good with goats and sheep, so our ideal home for Heehaw will not be a goat/sheep home as we are not able to test his manners with goats and are not sure if he learned to distrust goats from his mother. Since Heehaw is so young, an experienced home that will help him learn manners as he grows up will be ideal. His adoption fee is $250.

Loretta
LorettaLoretta
Loretta

Breed: Standard Donkey

Gender: Jennet

Age: Estimated DOB 10/10/14

Loretta came to rescue with her mom from abandonment. She is very cute, dark brown with light points. Loretta was shy on intake, but is handled daily in her foster home, and is coming around very quickly. She is being weaned with another donkey foal, and is continuing her socialization with both humans and donkeys.

Loretta will ultimately be a fantastic pet standard donkey. She does still share grain with her mother, and she reliably eats hay on her own. Loretta’s full weaning date is 02/13/2015.

Update! After two days without her sweet loving mother Loretta is now in my pocket. She seeks me for attention and can be petted everywhere without the slightest hesitation. Hoof camp begins soon! Her adoption fee is $250.

Casper
CasperCasper

Breed: Standard Donkey

Gender: Gelding

Age: 10

Casper came in to rescue with Princess and Maestro, but he was not from the same home as they were originally. As best we can tell his length of ownership there was only 6 months. Prior to that, he was living life as a livestock guardian donkey, specifically working with cows. Caspar has enjoyed getting to be a donkey among donkeys, and has integrated wonderfully at the donkey farm where he fosters.

His hooves were terrible when he arrived in rescue, but he was able to be trimmed and has make remarkable progress on hoof shape, but this will be ongoing with him for several months to get his hooves in order. Caspar is shy, and will need a gentle natured owner to help him continue learning to trust people. He is not mean to people, he simply has had limited positive interactions with them, and prefers to keep his distance. Casper could be a livestock guardian again, but his adoptive home will need to commit to proper veterinary and hoof care. Casper’s adoption fee is $250.
