We breed Registered Miniature Donkeys with great conformation and color on our 15 acre farm in Central Texas. Raising Miniature Donkeys has been a passion since 2004. Our breeding program includes spotted, red, gray, brown, and frosted spotted whites. Our two breeding jacks, Hauenstein's Cloud Walker and Sassafrass Petite Syrah, give us a variety of color matched with the right jennet. Future herdsire, Sassafrass Tune Topper, is a spotted jack with blue eyes! Our donkeys are registered with the ADMS, microchipped for identification, handled daily, wormed, vaccinated, and have regular hoof care.
Small, Friendly, Sound, Healthy, Adorable! Originally founded in Solvang, California, Sassafrass Farm relocated to Salado Texas in 2008 with our best breeding jennets. We breed Miniature Donkeys with champion bloodlines in both our jacks and jennets. We currently have 24 donkeys, including a few foals for sale.
Bruce and I welcome you to come meet our donkeys and see for yourself how affectionate, lovable, hugable, laughable, and rewarding owning Mini Donkeys can be. We are located off HWY 35 about 60 miles north of Austin.
FOALS NOW AVAILABLE
We have a few foals available. Vaccinated, Microchipped and Registered with the American Donkey & Mule Society. Nothing is cuter, friendlier, or more lovable than a baby donkey!

Registered Miniature Donkeys since 2004
Our most asked question is, "What do you do with them?"
Miniature Donkeys can walk in parades, pull a cart, and carry a pack saddle or small child on their back. There are donkey shows specific to the Miniature Donkey throughout the U.S. Due to their gentle and affectionate nature, they are wonderful with children, disabled, and the elderly. They are smart and learn quickly. Check out our FUN PAGE for pictures, and be sure to check out our LINKS page for more information.
Our grandchildren love donkeys!
