JG Sunrise Hero
~Pet Gelding~
~For Sale~

BORN:  May 12, 2015
COLOUR: Dark Red
BIRTH HEIGHT: 21.5"
REG.#:  CDGE-CAN-(pending)
 
 
SIRE:   Stoney Acres Rusty 32.5" (Sorrel)
DAM: MJB Miss Juliette 32.5" (Brown)
 
 
 
 
A nice and spunky beautiful red boy.  He definitely had herd sire potential with his small correct build but believe he will make someone the perfect pet.  He was used in the petting barn during the Vermilion Fair and was a hit!  His halter and farrier training has already started and he's even been bathed too.  Ready to go this fall!
 
 
 
Congratulations to Kari on her purchase of JG Sunrise Hero! 
We wish you all the best with this little guy and know he will have a wonderful home. 

Thank you!

~Future Breeding Jennet~

BORN:  July 28, 2014
COLOUR: Red with Star
BIRTH HEIGHT: 19"
REG.#:  CDJE-CAN-5511
 
SIRE:   Stoney Acres Rusty 32.5" (Sorrel)
DAM: DuPlessis Farm's Amber Glo 31.5" (Red)

This is one really nice jennet foal.  Glo is the sweetest donkey we ever had.  Her grandam is Starberry, and we can't say enough about her.  This year at the MDE II show, being 11 year old jennet, Starberry won Reserve Grand Champion Jennet and Grand Champion High Point Open Donkey.  This line always produces us that gorgeous red colour, small heights with excellent conformation and wonderful temperaments.  This foal will be sure to get you noticed in the show ring!

Hearts is just so precious!  She's a gorgeous square brown jennet that has the potential to produce red babies.  Hearts has a pretty head with beautiful big brown eyes.  Well muscled, straight legs with a great stride, overall a very nice jennet! 
Would be a wonderful addition to any breeding program.
Has been shown 2 years in a row and has a solid training foundation on her.
Great at showmanship, halter, jumping, and trail.

A nice sweet beautiful red girl with a small star.  This is Hearts first baby for us and from Star Fire too.  We had sold Star Fire to Fern and brought Heats up to him, couldn't be happier with this combo!  I may already be regretting selling this stunning combo :)   

 

Marnie Anderson, Chilliwack BC
 
Congratulations to Marnie on her purchase of this stunning package: JG Sunrise Rustic Glo and JG Sunrise Precious Hearts with her new baby JG Sunrise Precious Ruby! 
All I can say is wow what a great group of girls to get you started again.  Glo is one of the best jennets I think we've produced yet in conformation and little Ruby is looking to be a knock out as well. 
We wish you all the best with your new little herd. 

Thank you!

DAM: DuPlessis Farm's Cherokee's Starberry 32.5" (Red)
 
Starberry has produced another stunning baby.  Correct, gorgeous, and attitude all around.  This little guy could definitely be a show stopper!  He is an exact replica of his full sister JG Sunrise Sheza Sparkle in conformation but is more of a fire red.  Twister's training has begun with haltering, farrier work, and bathing.  He was one of the other foals that was taken to the Vermilion Fair and used in the petting barn.  Twister did excellent with his first trip to town and loved all the attention.
 
Wonderful gelding for your family

Shimmer is super friendly with a nice quiet disposition.  She has nice long ears that curl up the tip, straight petite legs, and a pretty little head.  She is going to stay small and refined.  Shimmer's dam Orange Dazzle has done very well in the show ring for us.  She was Reserve Grand Champion High Point Green donkey at the 2012 MDE II Show in Red Deer and was an amazing donkey for our daughter to show.

GRAND DAM: Double D Farm Little Bit 31.75 " (Red)
 
We were very excited to add Ginger as a future breeding jennet to our herd but no longer have a jack to breed her so have sadly decided to sell her.  She comes from Asspen Grove Miniature Donkeys out in beautiful Lumby B.C.  She's got an outstanding small compact structure passed on through her amazing parents and that gorgeous deep red that we are looking for.  Ginger is well trained and did awesome at the 2012 MDE II Show.  With her quiet and loving personality she makes the perfect donkey for juniors to show.

Pancho is your perfect driving donkey or family pet.  One of these year's I'm going to keep one of Daisy's gelding to be our own.  Daisy produces strong, dependable babies and Rusty adds his flair on the finer points.  It is just such a nice combo if you are looking for a performance donkey.

Thank you Erin & Brandon for purchasing your first miniature donkeys; Pancho & Lefty through JG Sunrise Acres.   Erin saw both these little guys at the Vermilion Fair in the Old MacDonald's Petting Barn and couldn't resist their cuteness.  We know they will have great homes at your place come spring and we wish you all the best of luck with them. 
It will be so nice for us to see our boy's going just across the river!

Thank you!

Star Fire has lots of spunk and personality, he definitely is a fabulous Herd Sire.  JG Sunrise Acres has shown Star Fire at the 2010 & 2011 Miniature Donkey Extravaganza Shows in Red Deer.  We are so proud of this little boy in how he performed.  There were a great number of wonderful donkeys that were tough competition at the show and he held his own by winning us ribbons and doing everything we asked of him!  In the 2011 show he placed 1st in his halter class!
We are quite impressed with this little guy and are very sad to see him go. We have decided to list Star Fire for sale only because we have decided to retain Wild Fire who is of similar bloodlines.   We won't be using Star Fire this year and would like him to go to a new home where he will be used to his full potential.  Star Fire is staying small, has filled out, and has that great show attitude.  He is easy to halter and handle.  This boy can absolutely do anything from halter classes to trail class.   
So if you are looking for an outstanding sorrel Herd Sire with completely new bloodlines in Canada, please contact us for more information on Star Fire!
PRICE $2000

Chaos is your true grey colour.  He is show clipped, blanketed, excellent with his feet, and halter trained.  Currently working on his trail course.  At two weeks old we used him in the petting barn at the 2010 Vermilion Fair and he was quite the little performer.  Nothing phases this little boy and was a huge hit at the petting barn...    
This lovable boy is ready for the show or will make a wonderful companion or pet.

Jasmine is a gorgeous true black jenny with a princess personality.  She loves the attention and has a very quiet temperament.  She is great around kids and was used in the petting barn at the 2010 Vermilion Fair.  Unfortunately for us Jasmine does not quite fit into our breeding program and this little girl is listed for sale as a non-breeding pet only to the perfect home.  This is a great opportunity to own a true black miniature donkey at a pet price! 
Jasmine has been bathed, clipped, very farrier friendly, halter trained and loads into a trailer.  Small kids have ridden on her back and she has completed our obstacle training course.  Come check her out!

~SOLD~
Marv & Pat Mercier, Bonnyville AB
Thank you Marv & Pat for purchasing our Jasmine. 
We are very sad to see this stunning little girl leave our farm,
but we know she will have the perfect home!
