We sit on 8 acres m/l in the far southeast corner of Wright County Missouri. My husband (Bill) and I moved to Norwood in July of 2001 from Denver, Colorado. We are less than eight miles from Mountain Grove and less than an hour from Springfield, MO. Springfield is a great little city with lots of shopping, great hospitals and entertainment (Broadway Shows, Baseball, Bass Pro, etc.). My husband and I are animal lovers ... we love them all ... but our donkeys have stolen our hearts!
Miniature Donkeys are like having big dogs - they love you unconditionally. If you have never met a miniature donkey ... come visit our farm and have the wonderful experience of a soft, fluffy, adorable donkey loving on you!
We are putting together what we believe is an exceptional herd of registered miniature donkeys whose bloodlines include some of the original imports. Bill and I are breeding solely for the purpose of enjoyment and to keep the fine qualities and confirmation of the Mediterranean (from the islands of Sardinia and Sicily) Donkey as our main focus. We believe in promoting this wonderful animal because of the disposition and heart of the donkey.
We purchased our first donkey, "R Little Sausalito" (Sassie) as a companion for my mare, Pockets. From that moment on we have been enamored ever since we set our eyes on our first miniature donkey!
Sassie played with her best friend, Spike, for two plus years until we purchased her a new friend, Boo. Here is a picture of Sassy and Spike playing in the pasture.
We like to provide as much information to future owners, enthusiasts and breeders! Please check out our other pages and email us or call with any questions.
We invite you to come and visit our home and our donkeys! Our home sits on 8 acres m/l with wonderful views of the Ozark Hills! We have a spring fed pond which is full of wildlife and if you are a bird watcher you will enjoy feeding Hummingbirds as well as Grosbeak, Woodpeckers, Goldfinch ... just to name a few. The land is mostly pasture and is fenced and cross-fenced.
