Little Friends Victoria

Date of Birth: 15. October 2004

Birth Height: 20" at 4 days

Color: Gray-Dun

Sire: Little Friends Piccolo

         28 1/4" Gray-Dun

Dam: Little Friends Serina

         30 1/2" Gray-Dun

Victoria is our last baby for the year. She has had a rough start in this world. We had to syringe feed her for the first 14 hours since she couldn't figure out how to latch on to her mom's milk bottle. She is fine now and is a sweet little girl. Her name reflects her early struggle for survival. Out of two small parents she will likely not get very big.

Pictures at 1 1/2 days - pictures below at 7 days.

Another little baby that arrived while I was watching another jenny on the monitor. He arrived 9 days early to an experienced wonderful moma - one of my favorite jennies.

Pictures at approx. 8 hours - pictures below at 9 days.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

Little Friends Muna Lee

Date of Birth: 10. October 2004 - before midnight

Birth Height: 21"

Color: Gray-Dun - some rose tones

Sire: Ass-Pirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: Laughlin's Soballia

         34" Dark Brown

What a surprise when my husband woke me up to tell me that I should put the baby up before it starts raining (the only rain forecasted in almost 2 months)! She wasn't due for another three weeks and I was watching another jenny on the monitor when this little girl arrived outside. What she is lacking in color considering her parents' colors and background she is certainly not lacking in conformation! She is beautiful!!! Stocky, drafty and heavy boned and straight - even as a newborn! She is a full sister to Little Friends Red Ruby (red/sorrel) that we have retained for our breeding herd. She has 726 ancestors in her donkey tree and boasts a variety of color with lots of red on both sides of her pedigree.

Pictures at 8 hours.

This little girl is for sale.

This little boy had a speedy delivery and was up on his legs before his mom was. He is our last baby until late October when we should have 2 more jennies to foal.

Birth Height: 18 1/2" @ 2 days

Color: Brown - Bay Pattern

Sire: to be added

Dam: Delta Tina Turner 

         32 1/4" Brown

 

The timing of this little girl's birth was a total surprise to us since we purchased her mother as possibly bred for 2005. We didn't realize the impending birth until the very day this tiny baby was born. Her birth was unusual as well since her mother decided to stand up when the baby was 3/4 of the way delivered and I had to physically support the baby. She is finally starting to have a little bit more energy at 2 days of age. I am soooo greatfull that Tina is such a good mother at such a young age.

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         34 1/4" Dark Brown

 

Mayson is another light red son of Jolly.  Fancy didn't waste any time teaching him his feeding schedule. He has learned quickly to stay away from Fancy's back end and swishing tail. I had to fish him out of the water bucket once as a result. He looks like Little Pinkster and together may make a good driving team in the future.  He has 331 ancestors in the donkey tree.

La Luna was born 2 weeks early at Full Moon. She is an energetic and very friendly little bundle. She is almost a carbon copy of Macarena's last baby girl. Luna has a nice pedigree going back to the imports with 335 ancestors in the donkey tree that includes a variety of different colors.

This little guy is the third of the three little boys that were born here within 20 hours. He is a sweet little boy and has Jolly's color. He looks to have nice conformation with a nice pedigree. All three little boys will most likely become the best of playmates.

Pictures taken at 12 hours - pictures were taken with a flash and his pink color doesn't show up that well in the pictures.

Little Friends Ranch D'Angelo

Color: Dark Gray-Dun, dark legs/black tones

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: Spotted Acres Dynamites Dolly

         31 3/4" Dark Brown

 

D'Angelo is the second of the three little jacks that were born here within 20 hours. He is a solid little jack and his dam Dolly needed some help with his delivery. All is well now and he is a very handsome boy with nice conformation.  He probably has the black tones from his maternal grand sire who is black. He also has a variety of other colors in his background including lots of red.  With two small parents he should also mature small.

Little Friends Ranch Cappuccino   

Date of Birth: 14. April 2004  - approx. 8:00 AM

Birth Height: 19 1/2"

Color: Gray-Dun with brown tones

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: Little Friends Ranch Candie

         32" Gray-Dun

 

Cappuccino is the first of three little jacks. I was watching two jennies on the monitor - but not Candie since she didn't look that ready. She just snug him in. He is a cutie and looks very much like Candie when she was a baby. He is proportioned nicely and with two very nice parents we only expect him to turn out nicely as well. He should remain small. His pedigree goes back to the Sardinian imports and Circle C Little Motown (black)  with a variety of color and lots of red!

Pictures taken at 1 day - the first picture is more like his real color - the other was taken with a flash.

Little Friends Ranch Lady Bug

Date of Birth: 10. April 2004 - Approx: 6:00 PM

Birth Height: 18" - 23 1/2" @ 3 1/2 months

Color: Tri-Color spot

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: Triple Creek Farm Bonnie

         32 3/4" Brown/White Spotted

 

Lady Bug is the smallest baby born on our farm. One could just scoop her up under one arm. She has beautiful color with a broken dark shoulder stripe on one side. Her eye-patches, ears and behind her ears look red. Her back is also very uniquely colored - it looks like someone took an eraser and just erased the color off of her back (stripe and all) across the middle and also her mane right behing her ears. She has black eye lashes on one side and white ones on the other. She looks as if she is wearing Mascara. What a cute, tiny baby she is!

Little Friends Ranch Rinaldo   

Date of Birth: 18. March 2004  - 11:10 AM

Birth Height: 22 1/2"

Color: Gray-Dun

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: McWirther's Jewel Dawn

         31 1/2" Gray-Dun

 

And our fourth daytime baby this foaling season. Rinaldo is a cute little gray jack foal out of two small parents. When he was born he looked like he was wearing a hood. He was wearing a piece from the bag he was in right on top of his head. He was up and nursing quickly. He is a nicely conformed and square little guy with a beautiful light gray color. I love his very black muzzle (just like his mom) with just a band of white around it. Like Happy's first foal he has a super sweet personality and doesn't know a stranger at just a day old. He loves to pass under his dam's belly and between her legs and she just freezes to accommodate and not hurt her baby.

         31" Very Dark Brown

Color: Dark Red with small forehead star

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: Merry Go Rounds Scarlett

         35" Dark Red

 

Our second daytime baby this foaling season. Little Red Dipper is a nicely conformed little jack foal with beautiful color! He has an outstanding pedigree with 647 known ancestors in the donkey tree - dating back to the first 1929 imports. Some of the well known ancestors in his pedigree are Valintino 75 (Red Baron), Valintino 49 (Winchester), Philamina 34, Throwback to Blue, Theseus, Parentheses, Queen Isabella, Luigi 95, Blue's Blue, Philamina 48 and 79 - going back to the original imports of Cristofo Colombo on his dam's side and LN stock, Valintino 50, Arbor Ledge Little Red and many others on his sires side, also going back to the imports. As far as we can tell at just a day - old - he looks to be show quality.

Little Friends Ranch Windy Meadows   

Date of Birth: 20. February - 12:19 PM

Birth Height: 22 1/2"

Color: Rose Dun foal coat

Sire: Asspirin Acres Jolly Roger

         30 3/4" Light Red

Dam: Little Friends Ranch Cookie II

         33 1/4" Gray-Dun

 

Windy had a stormy entry into this world! We had high winds, dark clouds and she was born in the middle of it. She almost literally hit the ground running.... she is the first baby that was up on her legs before her mother and never fell down once trying. Windy is a friendly little girl with a red shine all over (Jolly's color influence). At 24 hours she is already trying to chew little pieces of hay.  She is our first baby for the season. You can guess how she got her name.
