In naming stock everything must have rhyme or reason - or at least here at Joe's Jack's we think so - or at least Kathy, "the boss", think's so. Anyway .... moving forward. Jack's and Jennet's are so personable. Personality comes from breeding.
Visitors are welcome to contact us to set up a time to visit and view our stock first hand, but here are a few tips on the personalities to look for in the Jacks above.
TEX - Tex is the old man around the house, except for Joe. He is a 1994 model and sire of many of the jennets. He stands between 15.2 and 15.3 hands. Tex is a son of Walter and a grandson of El Joaquin, a pure blooded Catalonian import. The Catalonian bloodline contributes the short, black hair and smoother than typical build Tex passes to his offspring. He is an easy jack to handle and has produced many offspring that have done well in halter and performance classes. Tex is registered with The American Donkey and Mule Society, see Tex's Pedigree.
STORMY- is a son of a large mammoth jack I used to own called Larry (aka Horseshoe Hills Bugsy). At 15.3, Bugsy just did not seem to fit him! Stormy’s dam is Ellie, my largest jennet at 16 hands. She is a Tex daughter. Stormy was born in June, 2009. Stormy is a little over 15.3 hands, with good conformation. He will be introduced to the Tex and Nonami daughters and granddaughters starting this year. Stormy pedigree
HIGH NOON- is the senior spotted jack. He was purchased from the Joe Jarrett herd in Texas. He was sired by Rosser’s J.J. and has a pedigree extending back to Bully Boy. High Noon stands 14.3 hands. He has one of the most distinct spot patterns you will find in mammoth stock. High Noon has produced donkey and mule foals who have done well in the show ring and on the trail. High Noon also has an extensive show record. High Noon is registered with The American Donkey and Mule Society as well as the American Council of Spotted Asses Inc, see High Noon's ADMS Pedigree and ACSA Pedigree.
