Ones White Feather is our home-grown miniature donkey. He enjoys
carting children at parties, helping out with nativity plays, or coon
jumping at the state fair. Miniature donkeys make lovable pets and are
what's called easy keepers. They are always ready for a hug. Miniature
donkeys are not all gray. They are red, spotted, black, and of course
white. Wee Ones White Feather has proven to be a number one contender
for the coon jump and driving. It doesn't matter if it is fun, or
competing, Wee Ones White Feather is number one here on the farm.
He was five months old in this picture. White Feather is special because he
is always loves attention, enjoys eating his grain and plays well with
the other donkeys. Now why does a white donkey love to get in the mud?
Wee Ones White Feather is very loving and always wanting to please. We
have owned White Feather since birth. White Feather is not only a pet
but a performance miniature donkey. He competes in classes such as lead
race, snigging (dragging a log or pole), coon jumping, pleasure driving,
obstacle driving, halter and trail classes.
Miniature donkeys are easy keepers. It takes only a hand full of grain
and a wedge of hay per day per donkey. They are not typical suburban
backyard pets, mainly because of the restrictions of the community. The
miniature donkey has a cross on its back. This is known as the mark
Christ laid upon the donkeys as the animal that carried Jesus on Palm
Sunday. All have the cross but some are more visible than others.
Wee Ones White Feather is known best for his coon jumping. This is a
class where the miniature donkey is lead into a boxed-off square,brought
to a complete halt and then jumps over the bar. This represents when
hunters would take their donkey hunting coons and the donkey would jump
We all love White Feather here at the farm.
