We had all been anxiously
awaiting the birth of Tangerine’s new foal. She had been with Santana
from Sept 20, 2005 until near the end of October 2005. We can truly
say this little girl was well worth, what seemed like, a very long wait.
In the wee hours of the morning we watched one of the most perfect births
we’ve ever seen. It was amazing how quickly everything went and what
a beautiful bright copper little girl was presented. While she was still
wet you could tell her color was a very rich sorrel. We named her Pennies
From Heaven for her unusual bright copper color and she was our gift
from heaven. This little girl was ready to show the world she was here.
It did not take her long to stand, nurse, and begin to show off for
all who were watching her on our barn cam. She entertained us for many
hours running and jumping and crawling all over Tangerine. At times
Penny would run so fast she was just a blur in the camera.
Pennies bloodline boasts of genes from her dad, My World Santana, and
her mom, Windcrest Tangerine, with the Little Red Man pedigree. She
proudly struts around showing off all the qualities of her breeding
including that very loving Little Red Man personality. If you’ve ever
had that bloodline you know about those adoring faces and eyes that
look at you and say “love me”. Penny has it ALL...perfect bite, stocky
body and legs, and lots of roaning in her legs and “cheeks”. You can’t
help but notice her little off set star right over those big expressive
Penny sold quickly before we got her info posted or her graphic done.
We really were debating on whether or not to sell her since she was
a breeding we could use with our sires. This girl is a real prize!

Pines Nancy Drew, 34.5" Dark Brown
What can we say other
than Racer and Velvet had a girl that is absolutely “out of this world”
gorgeous. We had, anxiously, been waiting for this little foal to arrive.
Velvet had appeared to be in labor several times but each time it was
a false labor. But, Wurly Gurly was well worth the wait.
Her foal coat appears to be black with no visible cross at this time.
At first we thought she was a no light points baby but as she dried
we saw that she has an intermediate muzzle with just a light smudge
on the top of her nose but the bottom of her nose is dark. She has slight
eye rings but they are not as big as her mom. We love the way those
stocky legs support her stout little body. She has a short head with
big ears that point to the stars with pride.
To sum up our opinion …….Out of This World!!!
Check our web cam to see her for the next
several days and nights.
Noelle , 32.5" Brown & White Spotted
Grand Sire: Thunderbolt,
Dark Brown/White Spotted Grand Dam: Eugenia,
perfectly describes this little spotted girl. Her stocky body, wide
chest, straight legs, and perfect bite give her that “ready for the
show ring” look. She has an unusual rose dun color that causes you to
Blush and take a deep breath when you see her. Her spotted pattern covers
over half of her body making her very flashy. Blush has a personality
to match all her physical beauty. She definitely has class, style, a
heads up attitude, and a winning look in those eyes that show so much
This little package was well worth the wait this year. She has caused
lots of excitement at our farm. So many people have inquired about her
after seeing her born on our Barn Cams. Even watching her playing in
her stall at night with her mother is entertaining. She will be under
Barn Cam 3 at nights for about another week. (click
her to see her) As active and independent as Blush is, she is commanding
the attention of all the other donkeys in the “nursery”.
Blush had only been born 9 hours when we got a call from someone who
just had to have her! Yes, she sold very quickly, and Her proud new
owner is flying in today, Oct. 8th, to meet her new baby. Bet she blushes
when she sees her for the first time!

Punkin’ was born on
the very last day of Summer. We had just bought some pretty mums and
pumpkins to make a fall arrangement on our farm. We were going to work
on it that day. After watching her mother spinning around the stall
early that morning we felt sure we’d have a foal by noon so we didn’t
plan on doing yard work after all. We were so happy when at 8:20 that
morning Cherry had the most beautiful little dark sorrel (red) girl.
We could hardly wait for her to dry so we could make sure she was dark
red like we thought. When she dried she was a gorgeous dark red that
reminded us of the dark orange/red mums and pumpkins we had just purchased.
We’ve had several jacks in a row so we very excited to see this precious
girl. She had won the Fall Foaling Contest for us so we decided to name
our new beauty “Miss Punkin’ Patch 2006.”
It rained for two days so we would not let her out of the stall knowing
full well her beautiful red hair would be covered in mud. As you can
see, her hair does remind you of the colors of fall. Punkin’ has a very
playful personality so getting her to stand in one place for pictures
has not been easy.
Both parents have a great pedigree, conformation, nice round hind quarters,
and a stocky frame which they passed right on to Punkin’. I must tell
you she is a snuggler and she walks right up in your lap and looks at
you with gorgeous heavily lined eyes.
This girl has what it takes to go in the show ring and leave with the
blue ribbons. She will make an excellent addition to your herd.
Everyone is out looking for Pumpkins this time of year so make sure
you take a look at this one for your Halloween Treat!

While driving some
unfamiliar road, have you ever seen a farm, house, or a barn, that makes
you slow down, or even stop, to take that second look? They have appeal
that is evident from the road. Kurby has that same affect on you. Within
a split second he has drawn you to stop and take that second look. You
see his short coupled body, stout legs, wide chest, beautiful heavy
red hair, and a face with many expressions. He has a curiousness about
him which keeps you entertained as he explores his surroundings.
Kurby kept me on the move while trying to get his pictures. He was going
everywhere introducing himself to trees, flowers, driveway, leaves,
and whatever else was within his sight. All I could do was laugh as
I tried to stay with his fuzzy little rump and out guess his active
little mind for his next move.
A donkey that can catch your eye from a distance causing you to stop
for another look, is one you must have for your very own. He is for
sale so make sure you decide quickly to get this cute little one with
Lotta Kurb Appeal for your enjoyment!!
What a delight!
This little guy is one of the sweetest little fellows we have ever seen.
He became our best little buddy the very night he was born. No other
name would do for him but “Buddy”. If you had the pleasure of seeing
him under our Barn Cam, you know exactly what we mean. His mother, Circle
C Miranda, and Buddy were right under foot at all times. Being in their
stall to visit or clean was always play time as he would run, play catch,
go under his mother’s tummy to get to us on the other side, knock over
the muck bucket, while Miranda would stand on the muck rake after she
had backed up for us to scratch her bottom. We got lots of sugar from
little Buddy. He is so very affectionate and adores being with people.
Everyone thought we named him “This Bud’s For U because his dad is Circle
C Corona, Not true…he got his name simply because he would make U the
best little buddy you’ve ever had. His winning personality and his cute
antics have you wanting to pick him up to just hug and squeeze him.
Buddy has a fantastic pedigree which was passed right along to him.
Take a look at his sire, dam, grand sire, etc. Each of them has passed
along their conformation, great looks, pedigree, and show like qualities.

Tie Affair!! What an exciting afternoon we had watching the birth of
Fina’s new black foal. We had been so anxious for her to have this foal
since she was bred to Itsy Bitsy
Burro Co. Majestic, a black 31.5” jack. Well, Fina and Majestic,
both from Big
Woods Farm, certainly did not disappoint us. This little fellow
arrived with a textbook deliverey. He was all dressed up in his shiny
black suit like he was ready to go to a “Black Tie Affair”.
I could not believe my eyes. He is so black and shiny he looks like
he is made of patent leather. I told Bob I was going to take this boy
to the annual New Year’s Eve Party because he cleans up better than
Ty even has dark eye rings making it hard to see those big black eyes
looking lovingly back at us. He does have some white inside both ears.
Talk about stocky, straight, with a perfect bite, and a fantastic pedigree
behind him. He has been born with all the attributes to attract those
jennets. Check out his pedigree below as it is awesome. We’d like to
thank Tom and Deby for selling us such a beautiful and extremely sweet
jennet, Fina. She makes such a nice addition to our herd.
Ty will be for sale so check out our For Sale Page in a few days.
This is one you don’t want to miss for sure!!
You can see Ty on our Barn Cam during the evening for a week or so.

to view them on our live streaming barn cam! He and Fina are out during
**I forgot to mention Ty already has a “girlfriend” in Utah. She is
15 and the first one to give us a call when Fina went into labor. She
is his “Donkey Pal” for now.
A WISH COME
TRUE! I thought Meggie would never have this foal. We bred her to Cimmaron,
our sorrel herd sire, hoping to get a compact little jennet with both
sorrel and black/brown in her pedigree. Never in our wildest dreams
did we think we would have to wait 13 months, 7 hours and 50 minutes.
I know the exact time because I wrote all the info down so I could see
if and when she was due to come back in season. Cimmaron bred Meggie
one time and I took her out. She never came back in season so she took
her own sweet time having her first baby.
Genie is everything we were "wishing" for and more. She is very compact,
straight, bite is right on, and has such a precocious personality. She
is the spitten image of her mother, Meggie, which is great. I had her
in the yard the other day to get pictures and she would not stand still
for a second. She ran and played and it was all I could do to breath
in this 100 degree Tennessee humidity.. I will try again this weekend
because we are so anxious for everyone to see this little girl. She
is truly a heart stopper. She will be for sale...keep checking back
for better photos. The two photos above were the only two our witchmaster
deemed worthy of her! Visit our

The moment we
saw this little fellow we knew he was very special. He was so elegant
that he reminded us of a fine work of art. He is so black that it is
very hard to see all of his great features. At this time, he has no
visible cross in his foal coat, but that could change over time.
Rembrandt is definitely a heads –up donkey with such a loving personality.
His legs are nice and straight, his bite is perfect, and he has such
a regal air about him.
We all know about Santa and the magic of Christmas. Shortly before Christmas
Eve a lot of donkey breeders get notes from Santa telling them to put
a few special donkeys in their barns on Christmas Eve. He likes to travel
over the barns peering in to find just the right donkey for special
boys and girls. We were so lucky this year to have Santa choose Rembrandt
to go to a very special young lady that we already knew and loved. Santa
took Rembrandt to Katie's barn and left him there for her to find on
Christmas morning. We are so happy for Katie and Rembrandt to be the
special ones chosen this Christmas. Another Christmas MIRACLE!!!!
No Longer Available!!
Placed in a new home by Santa Claus!
Now this is
one little charmer. She is so friendly but has a real problem with her
mother, Fancy, being extremely jealous. Fancy has been so spoiled since
she came to Wit's End and she keeps demanding ALL the attention. She
has been an excellent first mom, a bit protective, but more jealous
than anything else. Before she let's us get near May-zie she must be
petted, scratched, brushed, etc. We have to sneak around her head or
back to pet the baby. May-zie is such a beautiful blush color and just
full of herself. In order to get pictures we had to secure Fancy and
let her throw a royal fit. May-zie is very tiny, has a great set of
straight legs, a perfect bite. and just a cute pint-size package. She
will be going out in the nursery with the other jennets and their foals
so, hopefully, Fancy will have other things to worry about than her
little girl. I have several jack foals out there that will absolutely
love this little blonde girl.
May-zie will make a great addition to someone's herd who loves that
light sorrel coat. They almost look pink/blush at times. You can see
and she has truly spit herself out in this little gal.
Kiss Me Kate
is absolutely one of the sweetest little girls we have ever seen.
She has such a feminine way about her as she looks at you with those
beautiful soft eyes and the precious shape of a kiss (lips) on the
end of her muzzle. Everyone wants a kiss from her and she willingly
gives them one.
Kate already processes that “show me, look at me attitude”. Holding
her head up high as she runs around the paddock, and lifting those
straight bay legs, she stops in a perfect show stance to flash her
faint set of garters to all watching. This little girl is such a pleasure
and is ready to bring home that Blue Ribbon for some lucky farm/person.

What a pleasure
it is to present this precious sorrel boy. Prince appears to have
all the qualities of his herd sire, Cimmaron. He is very small but
so well balanced, drafty, and holds that awesome head up high as he
runs around the nursery paddock checking out the rest of the foals.
He acts as if he is ten feet tall yet is so gentle and tender. Prince
comes running like a new born puppy wagging his tail behind him. Everyone
has picked him up, loved on him, rocked him to sleep in their laps,
smothered him with hugs and kisses from the minute he was born. As
you can see in the photos above, when Prince gets tired he closes
those beautiful eyes and all you see are long red eyelashes. He will
make a wonderful junior herd sire for some lucky farm. Prince certainly
has the pedigree that most desire to have in their sorrel jack.
This little guy certainly has the WOW factor and the first words you
hear people say who have seen him is, “aaaahhhhh, oooohhhhh, can we
hold him?” Come see this little guy and you too can hold him and get
that warm fuzzy feeling we call the WOW factor.

Miss Jodie, 31" Brown
has nothing on Wit’s End Farm and their very own McDreamy. All I can
say is this little guy is a hunk and has personality plus that makes
him so desirable. His drafty structure only adds to his cuteness.
I’ve said he looks like a little stuffed pull toy. All he needs is
a string for pulling him behind you everywhere you go. McDreamy is
a real love bug as he sides up to you, brushes against your leg, snuggles
with you and becomes your shadow. Those stout straight legs, that
short coupled body, muscles that look like he has been lifting weights,
his great bite (teeth), fantastic coat, (hair), makes the girls wish
he were not a donkey but their very own McDreamy……if he only had money!!!
He did not last long as he SOLD when he was four days old.

Feliciana, 33.75" Brown
Can we say
Black Jack, 21, I win? Well, that’s exactly what this little guy offers.
He has a bit of white on the top of his nose which looks like a “smudge”.
We’ve been trying to identify a cross, but if it is there it must
be very faint.
Since the day “8 Ball” was born he has been very inquisitive and always
getting into trouble with his mom, CoCo. He loves to run fast but
does not watch where he is headed. I find myself stepping in front
of objects to keep him from running smack dab into things. When he
was 4 days old he was going lickity split around the nursery paddock
and suddenly came to one of those low feeding bunkers. He did not
hesitate and jumped entirely over the bunker from one side to the
other. I was holding my breath and he cleared it with no trouble.
Now we say “a little coon jumper”, cart donkey, show donkey? He does
not hesitate to leave his mom to go exploring or looking for something
to get him in trouble or “Behind the 8 Ball” with everyone. His pedigree
on top is black and sorrel and on the bottom is brown and spots. Hmmmm….great
possibilities. He is really filling out now and adding bulk to his
frame that is so well proportioned. Straight legs, and great bite,
and oh such fun.
We are still debating as to whether to sell him as a jack or a gelding.
Very rare for us to offer one of our boys as a herd sire so it is
a big decision for us.
Naming him was easy since he stays “Behind the 8 Ball” all the time.
There is one other thing that helped us name him ...click
Racer and Ebony sure
did a fantastic job on this little guy. Pacer looks so much like his
sire when he was little. He has his same drafty body, his firm set mouth,
nice round hindquarters, straight legs, perfect bite, and stands with
that "look at me attitude". He has so much class and style in that NLP
face plus he has that same gentle personality that Quarter Moon Ebony
and Racer posses. We look forward to watching this foal mature.
