Subject: Interested in learning more about and breeding our little jennet.

We have a cute-as-pie little jennet who will be a year old next month. She is approximately 36" at the withers, is dark brown (shedding coffee w/ cream color baby winter coat now)and white on her muzzle and inside her ears. Having never had experience with breeding donkeys would appreciate any help that you might be able to give in learning,
1)How do I know when she comes into estrus?

2)How old does she have to be before she is bred?

3)Would breeding her to a mini horse be preferable to a small pony? Would like to use a smaller stallion (less than 35") to facilitate an easier delivery and produce a very small offspring.

4) Is there anyone in the Mid-Missouri area who has a suitable stallion who would be willing to give it a try?

Thanks for your assistance.

Why are you trying for a HINNY? I would think you would want to breed to a Miniature Jack, as the off spring could in turn reproduce. Ther are a few spotted jacks that just might give you a spotted baby "DONKEY".
