Jennets Now Available

I only sell my donkeys in same-sex pairs; said differently, I only sell them with each other. I do not sell single donkeys. Please don’t ask me to.

I update my site frequently; if you see a donkey listed here as available, that is likely the case. Please inquire.

It is finally time for me to step down as a breeder, at the level that has been true for the past thirty years. I have twenty breeding-age jennets that are available to new homes, as well as two weanling jennets from this year. I will place my girls carefully! I am in no hurry, but as people come along who have the right homes to offer my donkey family, little by little, I will let them go. So, if you have a wonderful home to offer, please feel free to reach out and let me know that.

I will place my girls in same-sex pairs ONLY.

Benson Ranch is located in Gold Hill,
Oregon, just minutes off I-5.
