These pictures showing Black Hawk at 3 years of age (Aug 2012)
His dam Blackie is one of our favorites and a multi champion producer, Dam of Cyder’s Spartacus (dark red) residing in New Zealand and voted best of breed donkey (all sizes) in the country also a multi Grand Champion Show winner & producer of show winners.
His sire Cyder’s Jimmy Brown is also a multi-Champion producer, sire of multi Champion Small Pleasures Zydeco, and Cyder’s Velvet Brown, and a half brother to Champion Cyder’s Spartacus.

He carries some different black lines that you do not see often in the breed and we are proud to add some diverse genetics.
He is very pretty headed, has a deep rounded hind quarter with lots of power, nice heavy strong leg bone, wide chest, great neck placement beautifully arched; a very unique jack!
Complete full pedigree with historic ancestry.

Black Hawk will be introduced to jennets in 2012.
These are hawk’s first foals in 2013!
See hawk’s 2014 foals they are super.

 Gender: Jack     Date of Birth: 07-06-1996

   Height:  32.5”   Color: Dark Red

Sunset, one of the last remaining direct LCR Valintino 50th sons still producing today. Sunny has produced some outstanding offspring for us and his daughters are superb breeding stock additions; all offspring we have shown have placed high in the ribbons or earned Champion Status.

His foals have an abundance of great qualities, good leg structure, body width, wonderfully balanced up-headed conformation, great personalities and are very trainable and showy!
As a herd sire, Sunny will easily hand or pasture breed and is mannerly with the jennets & foals. 

Sunset is very trainable, actually he just does what ever you would like without much of any formal training. He has a real “sporting” personality a great donkey to be around and to work with.
His all around versatility really shines at the shows, parades, horse fairs, live
nativity, nursing homes, and even Santa’s little helper, and he does it all very willingly!
We are breeding him limitedly, therefore Sunny offspring is limited.
