~Any donkeys 30 days or over for "original pick up date" accrue a $5 a day feed charge. 
 2020-2022 have been banner years for donkeys... Looks like 10 mini foals  & 4-5 standard foals / total for 2023. I am not going to do a waiting list this year so just keep looking at the website in the spring and contact me closer to June. Deposits to hold a foal are half of the price of the animal and non-refundable. Jack foals will range from $2500-$6000, Jennets will range from $3000-$8000. Venmo is available and preferred over checks. If you want to be prepared I suggest you save your $$ and get Venmo. 

When you buy a Copper Star Farm miniature donkey... You are looking at 15 years of experience breeding miniature donkeys. I am proud to give you the best donkey / foal possible from my breeding program of selected donkeys. You get a halter & lead, registration with a microchip, a fresh trim, antibodies up to 6 months due to the jennet being vaccinated. I also try to include in your folder any extra info A Brayer Magazine/a tube or wormer. You also get 24 hours customer service (Me) until you feel comfortable to be on your own, but I am always here if you need help, mentoring.

Copper Star Farm Woodrow F. Call LD

Height: pending 
Sire: Copper Star MGFeltrinelli Editore Red & Brown & White Spot

Grand Dam: MGF Venus White Raven, 33" White 
Grand Sire: MGF Dr. Shivago, 32 1/4" Black&White spotted

Foal height: Super tiny pending height SOLD TO CANADA. 
Price: $3500 Sold to Gloria Kish from Kipling Saskatchewan Triple A Mini's 
Cindy always has the best foals and she is a good mom to a fault. She alone has influenced my farm more than any donkey. Cindy almost always has girls with only one noted jack foal to her credit other than Woodrow. Her influence is seen in her daughters & son: Black Friday CashWhoopsie DaisyMarcia's Legacy and her grand-daughters: ElizabethTaylor, and her great-grand-daughters: Black Widow & Queen Latifah & Dorothea Dandridge. And her amazing grand-son, Pendragon

As an addition you have the famous breeding programs of Jerry McRobert's and Kim Zellers in the sire's portion of this pedigree. My MGFeltrinelli Editore will throw red, grey, brown and black spots all with blue eyes. We do not know if Woodrow will "go woolly" yet but I am anticipating that he will at least be a semi-woolly by his foal coat. Just look at the pedigree here and you have so many options to work with. 
Woodrow has the potential to be a dramatic influence on your breeding program. We here at Copper Star Farm believe in investing in the jack as much as our jennets. Woodrow will be outstanding. I stake my reputation as a breeder on it! 
"Charles found this little guy after I got to work. Born on one of the hottest spring days Woodrow was carried up the mountain as Cindy followed. Charles told me how she was so good and how she trusted him."

If you are looking for a premier herd sire for your farm then this guy is it. 
We consider him the best of the best out of this years foal crop so far. 
His conformation is outstanding and we are waiting to see if he will grow some of the woolly hair of his sire & grand-sire. He will be respected in pedigrees as a sire of note in the future. 

If you are a micro breeder take a look at GQ!

Dam: Copper Star Farm's Venus Queen Latifah, Black wlp

Copper Star Farm Lil Finnegan (Semi-woolly)  
Still available! Already ADMS registered. SOLD TO WV
Color: Red brown bold spot with masked spotting factor 
DOB: June 26, 2017
Price: $SOLD PET / TO BE GELDED Home only 
We will be gelding him in November. 
Update: Teeth Floated as of the end of September.
He must go to another home with another donkey. He super bonds with his donkey buddies. No horses/goats/sheep companions etc..... 
He is slightly woolly so he does need someone who can groom him to keep the knots out. BTW: In love with Irma: See below. 

Copper Star Nicholas Romanoff (Intact Jack Prospect) 
Color: Spotted White Woolly (some intermittent spots)
Sire: Copper Star Farm MGFeltrinelli Editore, Woolly Spotted 
Dam: Copper Star Farm Driving Mrs. Daisy, Spotted White 
DOB: 2017 Spring 

Roman is easy to work with. He is not aggressive. He has not had his "dude parts" drop yet but they should here in the next 6 months. If you are looking for an inexpensive semi-woolly based jack here is your chance. His mother is of a first generation pedigree (She is registered with IMDR) but his father's is extensive (ADMS) pedigree. His dam (Daisy) is known to throw bold dark spots & tyger spots. 
He could be triple registered if you are willing to do the work. He could be registered ADMS - B Registry, IMDR & ACOSA. He has good conformation, good teeth and his demeanor right now is very laid back. Get him before breeding season starts April 1.

What a gorgeous representation of the Indian Tree Farm Line. Roaning all over this little girl. Especially on her face, belly and legs. Not sure yet if she will be a keeper. 
The Indian Tree Farm line is not a small donkey line. Cali will probably mature to be around 32-33 like her mother. They are strong donkeys that are good producers and great mommas. This is an old line that I am trying to continue here at CSF.

Name: Copper Star Bilou Bilou 23
Sire: Pine Ledge Ravagers Yondu: grey & white spotted jack / piebald on one side, 31.5" 
Dam: MGF Xanadu: black, 34" 

This little guy is really well put together. He is enjoying hanging out with his Mama and can be seen sprinting through the fields. 
He may go semi-wooly as there are woolly donkeys on both sides of his pedigree. He will be too big to be a jack but he will make an excellent gelding/pet. He will be ready to go to his new home in Sept/Oct.

Copper Star Sacagawea 2023                        
Pedigree available upon request 
Color: Dark Red/Brown
Born: Spring 2023
Price: $3000 Sold! She is headed out to Virginia. 
Height: mature estimate 31-32'
Exchange Rates Apply / Zelle-Paypal-Venmo rates apply
Sire: Copper Star Farm Spartan Warrior, 31", Black Roan 
Dam: Kinney's Morgane, Ivory Jennet, 32" 

Sacagawea is a really unique jennet. Her mother is an ivory and her father is a black roan. Her unsuspecting red/brown coat does not give a hint to her heritage. It is actually a bit confusing out in the field since her and her dam do not look alike. BUT! She will be an awesome brood jennet. SO, if you are looking for future brood jennets for your farm that will give you a solid foundation with some cool genetics... with LOTS of interesting colors/spots/ivory/forehead stars in her background then here she is. I am getting a LOT of calls for mature brood jennets but I will not part with any of my girls. 
I have jennet & jack foals available. 
Here she is. Grab her before I take her off the for sale page! 

Foals will start arriving April of 2023. Here is the list of jennets that are expecting for 2023.

Sire: Copper Star Farm Spartan Warrior, 31", Black Roan 
Dam: Copper Star Queen Latifah, 28" Black with light points
Sold, Headed to Doubs, France! 

I really do not want to sell this jennet. She is available for a short time. She is out of one of my best producing jennets. Her dam, Queen Latifah is short and sweet. Her last foal was a boy and Zeppelin resides in Chadds Ford, PA. QL blessed us with a black nlp girl with a star. She is simply beautiful and I know any herd would love to have her. After all, black nlp jennets make the best B&W spotted foals when bred to a spotted jack. 
Her sire is out uncompromising Black Roan jack, Copper Star Spartan. HE produces more girls than boys. His foals are always healthy and 100% well put together. He brings Bar3S & Hickory Hill Texas breeding to our program. As well as Indian Tree Farm which has the most unusual colors/spots and outstanding roaning of any jack that we have bred to. 

WE are currently sold out. Our availability will be updated after our next trip to Ohio. 11/1/2023
