We are excited to welcome Ass-Pirin Acres Tanesha to our farm. This gorgeous dark red, jennet is a daughter of Stoney Acres Pompei and Rolling Ridge Tamara. Thank you to Nicole Shultz for allowing this beauty to live in Tennessee. Tanesha was also owned previously by my friend, Jane Savage (Flight of Fancy Donkeys). Tanesha (also know as Strawberry) is due to foal the first of June. The proud daddy will be Cyder’s Mr. Madison. Can’t Wait!!!!!
We are extremely excited to add Cyder’s Mr. Madison as a herdsire at Legendary Farms. I did see Mr. Madison while visiting Cyder Bay Farm in Wisconsin and really thought he was beautiful at the time. Going forward a couple years later, here he is. Thank you Nicole Shultz for trusting us with this gorgeous jack. Mr. Madison has fantastic bone, is very stocky, beautiful topline, lovely legs and overall excellent confirmation. I absolutely adore his personality. He is so sweet and gentle and loves attention. Can’t wait for future Mr. Madison babies.
In September, I was really looking forward to a new baby foal. The mother, Cobra’s Windy (Sire: Cobra’s Windancer and Dam: Cobra’s Ginger) is a dark brown (NLP) 32-1/2″ very stocky jennet. The only red in Windy’s background is her grandfather, Cobra’s Red Man. The father of this September foal is Springlake Razmataz, who is light sorrel. I told everyone that I expected a dark brown foal and though it would be really neat to have a NLP (no light point). Well, “mother nature” had different ideas and we had a bright red jennet with a small star on her forehead. What in the world!!!!!! I never expected this baby from this combination. Not complaining, she is beautiful!
Below is a photo of Legendary’s Southern Belle at one month of age.
Let me introduce Legendary’s I Love Lucy. Lucy , a stunning red jennet (birth height of 21″) was born August 23, 2012. Her father is a beautiful red Cobra jack (Cobra’s Haileigh’s Comet). Comet is a medium red, with a white blaze, 31-1/2″ jack that is out of Cobra’s Red Man (dark red, 30-1/2″) and Sunset Acres Red Ruby (medium red 32″). Lucy’s mother is an older Cobra jennet, Cobra’s Natalie Cole; who is a direct daughter of Cobra’s Arthur (30″ gray dun).
I suspect that Lucy will remain small and has the sweetest personality and looks forward every day to her hugs.
Also born in August (8/29/12) was a red jennet with a large white star, Legendary’s Reba whose father is Cobra’s Haileigh’s Comet and mother is Designer Donkey’s Macy Lee. Macy Lee is an NMDA champion jennet who is out of Circle C Corona and Big Woods LN Miss Berri. This little baby was 22″ at birth and already is very out going like her mother.
A few months ago, two beautiful jennets (Legendary’s Minnie Pearl and Legendary’s Hot Summer) left our farm and took a long journey to their new home in Redmond, Oregon with Nicole Samuel. Nicole is getting established in Miniature Donkeys and is passionate about showing in Halter and Performance and establishing a quality herd. She has been training Minnie and Summer in “In-Hand” Trail and went to her first Miniature Donkey show and exhibited in this tough, competitive event. I was shocked when Nicole told me she entered In-Hand and showed. I have not yet showed in In-Hand and I am so proud of her. She showed Summer who was very scared at her first show, but improved immensely at her 2nd show.
Nicole showed Minnie in Halter at the Pacific Northwest Miniature Donkey show and placed 4th. Both of these girls will keep getting more beautiful as they grow up. WOW! Great job!!!!! She also placed with two little jacks. Great Job, Nicole. We are so thrilled for you.
It was also very exciting to see Kenny and Sherry Puckett at the Wilson County Fair with Comet (Cobra’s Haileigh’s Comet). They acquired Comet from us approx. 2 months ago and I was thrilled to see him. Comet is the sweetest, most gentle jack and I miss him terribly. But he has a wonderful home and the Pucketts really love him. Comet received a 4th Place in the 2 Year & Older Jack class. Congratulations!
Legendary’s Hot Summer is sizzling HOT! Out of our jack, Springlake Razmataz and our NMDA Champion jennet (Tennessee State Fair – 2009), Designer Donkey’s Macy Lee (Circle C Corona X Big Woods LN Miss Berri) . This girl is gorgeous with outstanding confirmation. She has a really wide chest, gorgeous straight legs, nice rounded rump, beautiful head and personality PLUS! She was born 30 days beyond her due date (a 13-month foal) and we were out-of-town the day she was born, therefore, we don’t have accurate birth height measurements. Thank you to Tennessee Equine Hospital for delivering our precious baby. The below photos are 4 days of age.
Summer is HOT!
Last summer, we had the cutest baby Miniature Donkey with personality PLUS! He loved to follow me around the yard and hold onto my pants. Well we submitted the below photo for a calendar on Miniature Donkeys and it was selected for one of the months. Legendary’s Buster Brown is now loved and owned by Jim and Jennifer Cline. Hmmm, I wonder if he follows them around the yard and holds onto their pants!
Dooley and Buster, two sweet and adorable Miniature Donkey geldings found paradise at the home of Jim and Jen Cline. They moved to the Cline’s home this year along with Dallas, a black and white Spotted Saddle Horse and a quarter Horse gelding. Below are some candid shots of Dooley and Buster from their IPhone (not bad quality). These photos bring a HUGE smile to my face knowing these two precious babies are so happy in their home. Thanks Jim and Jen!!!!!
