Green Mountain Select Jennet Sale

After much thought we have decided not to have a sale in 2007. We will miss the social event and hope that all of you know that you are welcome at anytime for a short or long visit! Of course, we will see you along the donkey trail thru out the year! We want to thank you for your support over the years. We do appreciate it.

We plan to hold our 6th annual Green Mountain Select Jennet Sale on June 23rd, 2007. The donkey growth in the Eastern and Northeastern part of the US is rapidly growing. This sale can benefit both consigners and buyers. We plan to again keep the numbers down and the quality up. We wish to offer high quality jennets with correct conformation, solid pedigrees and loving dispositions to new and established breeders in this region as well as the US and Canada. Foreign interest is at a high and we hope to also includ that market.

We encourage you to consign some of your best, represent your breeding program to the highest and benefit from this growing industry.

Without you, the consigner, this cannot happen. We ask you to join us. Bring your best donkeys and we will do everything we can to help you promote your farm, your breeding program and your success in this endeavor.

We plan to attract current owners and potential owners and we will market this event heavily in all the standard publications (ASSET, The Brayer, Miniature Donkey Talk, and the standard equine publications in the Northeast and Canada).  We'll make it fun and educational and I'm sure we'll sell some "mighty fine little donkeys" - we hope that yours will be among those at this first inaugural sale. This sale will be jennets only and we will select the best donkeys offered for placement in the sale. There will be a limited number of animals entered as we feel that quality outweighs quantity in terms of creating the right environment for marketing and promoting the breed.

If we unite as breeders we can raise awareness and knowledge of our "little" donkeys and ensure that we can all make a profit on this endeavor into the future.

Please either call (802-759-2665), write, or email (minidonk@together.net) me if you are interested in consigning quality jennets and I'll fill you in on the details.

To facilitate planning, we are requesting an answer by mid February, 2007.

Thanks, in advance, for your interest and your willingness to consider participating in this event.

It is a fun weekend, with much donkey talk and laughs. We think the Green Mountain Select Jennet Sale is THE social event of the year.


Happy Brays,


Marshlyn and Michael Reed

Mr. Robert Green, importer of the first Miniature Donkeys, is quoted as saying:  "Miniature Donkeys possess the affectionate nature of a Newfoundland, the resignation of a cow, the durability of a mule, the courage of a tiger, and the intellectual capability only slightly inferior to man's."
