Sunset Acres Red Sunset


 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.
