We first saw this on thestranger.com and had to go check it out. So cute!
Country Music Miniature Donkeys, based in Spicewood, Texas and owned by fourth generation ranchers Tim and Rhetta McAlister, raise and show cattle, South African Boer Goats and world class Quarter Horses – and miniature donkeys named after country stars. The farm’s two sires are ”George Jones” and “Garth Brooks.”
George, 30” tall, and Garth, also 30” tall, have a band of 35 jennets (female donkeys). All jennets have a “lovely disposition, excellent conformation and an extensive pedigree” according to the ranch’s website, resulting in high quality offspring. George and Garth have sired more than 25 National and World champions at Halter and Performance in Canada, Europe, New Zealand and the U.S.
If you would like to purchase an offspring of George or Garth, the website has a listing of donkeys for sale. For example, Tim McGraw stands 21.5 inches and is described as a true black with a small white marking on his forehead. Fathered by George Jones, Tim’s mother is Kelly Clarkson. Take a look at Tim in action:
Jason Aldean is also available for purchase. He’s the son of Garth Brooks and Someday’s Cinderella. He is well behaved and said to be gentle and trusting. He stands 30” tall and you can see him below:
If you would prefer a girl, Sara Evans is for sale. She is a descendent of George Jones and stands just 22” tall. The McAlisters say Sara is beautiful, gentle, curious and fun to work with. Take a look at Sara to see if she is the donkey for you:
