Foals Of 2012
Welcome to our 2012 Foals page!
Here at Benson Ranch we wait eagerly for our foals as they are a result of much careful planning and big dreams. Most of our breeding donkeys are part of the Circle C herd and are Grant and Sharon Cooke's legacy. It is an honor to have the herd here and a privilege to watch foals of this quality arrive. Our foals are born throughout most of the year. This herd has been established for many years and quite a few of the individual donkeys are well known. Because of this I have decided to post my list of our foals expected for 2012. If you see a pairing that particularly appeals to you please let me know and I will notify you when that foal is born.
New for this year will be foals by the
outstanding jack Willow Creek Luigi.
We gave him some very good jennets and are excited to see how his bloodlines will niche with our Cooke/Benson jennets.
mouse colored gelding to be DOB: 12/24/12
Circle C Cappachino x MGF Red Jet
This cute little guy is a very unusual color. He is almost a smoky black with a dark muzzle but he also has quite a cast of light brown overall and I really think he looks like a mouse. He is a small, short bodied boy with good conformation, as I would expect from his high quality sire and dam.
black gelding 10/30/12
Circle C Flambe' x Willow Creek Luigi
This little guy is soooo much fun! He is bold and sassy! He is also a beauty. I think he going to be a tall performance type gelding and those are increasingly difficult to find. I think Finnegan has the potential to be quite a force in the show ring.
BR I'M JAZZY TOO
light red/brown gelding DOB: 9/19/12
Circle C Larissa x Ozark Jazzy Jamm
We lost Jazzy Jamm this year due to age and poor treatment prior to his time with us. He was a gentle soul and is missed. This son out of one of our top Circle C jennets is outstanding. He has substantial bone, correct long legs, and a gorgeous head. To top it all off he is an affectionate fellow and we are really having fun with him. I think he has great potential as a performance gelding.
BR SUMMER SOLSTICE
Dk brown/sorrel/bay jennet 9/2/12
Feather Ridge Mavis x Willow Creek Luigi
Solstice is a pretty jennet of an unusual color. Her body is dark red/brown and her legs are black. She is a fancy girl with strong genetics.
sorrel jennet DOB: 7/21/12
LN Sonnies Cherries x Circle C Legend
Debutant is a beautiful girl and shows the influence of both her outstanding sire and dam. Legend gives us very few foals as he is often not interested in breeding so we especially cherish the ones he does give us.
We offer Debutant with some regret.
sorrel gelding 7/28/12
Circle C Topaz x MGF Red Jet
Hickory is a handsome fellow who looks just like his full brother BR Jet's Rimrock. His sire and dam are a cross that can't be beat!
black w/ no stripe gelding to be DOB: 6/6/12
Hiwest Mink x Willow Creek Luigi
Seville is an outstanding foal. I think he will be small (31"?) and has a very friendly bold attitude. He is a favorite here at the ranch.
almost black gelding DOB: 5/25/12
Circle C Mona Lisa x Willow Creek Luigi
Talisman is a beauty!!! He is for sale as a potential performance gelding.

BR ROYAL FLUSH
light sorrel gelding DOB: 5/1/12
NCL Diamond Flush x BR Caliente'
Royal Flush has been sold.
Thank you Lisa Smart!!!
BR SPEED RACER
charcoal gelding to be DOB: 4/18/12
Circle C Raspberry Fizz x Willow Creek Luigi
This little guy is quite the performance prospect! His dam is a full sibling to Circle C Red Tape and his sire is the great performance sire Willow Creek Luigi. Speedy has legs like a thoroughbred and is as bold as they come. I am having lots of fun with him! When I went out to take photos of him he was busy harassing his poor mom. I couldn't resist sharing the photos below.
Speed Racer is for sale.
light sorrel jack DOB: 4-7-12
Ass-pirin Acres Just Plain Sugar x BR Caliente'
Cairo is absolutely divine and I am crazy about him! Sugar always has the most beautiful foals. Cairo is Caliente's second foal. Nice job!

BR MOTOWN JAZZ
gray and white spotted jack DOB: 1/26/12
Double D Treasure x Circle C Little Motown
We were very happy to meet Jazz! He is tall and beautiful so I hope he will be a driving jack for me someday. A spotted Motown son - what fun!!!
Jazz is not for sale at this time.
black with star jennet DOB: 1/15/12
Heiken's Ark Rebecca x MGF Future Link
Renada is a remarkable jennet. She is so correct and fancy. I love Rebecca's foals! Renada will stay with us.
black jennet DOB: 1/9/12
758's Cleo x Circle C Little Motown
Teza is the tall Motown daughter I have been waiting for and I feel blessed! She will stay with us.

Jitterbug is hilarious! He has such a spicy personality and we really enjoy him. And, to top it off, he is beautiful.
