About Us

Our Mission: Our Mission is to produce the finest quality Miniature Donkey stock available to Miniature Donkey Breeders. By weaning time to have them trained to show at halter and the leadline obstacle course.

Jim and Rhetta McAlister's ranch, Country Music Miniature Donkeys, is located in the rolling Texas hill country in Spicewood, Texas, 30 miles west of Austin. The McAlisters are fourth generation ranchers.

The McAlisters have spent 25 years refining their Miniature Donkey breeding program.

They are breeding outstanding show and breeding quality Miniature Donkeys and treasured companions.

Their herd sires,
Country Music's George Jones (30"/dark brown) and Country Music's Garth Brooks (30"/dark brown) , have a band of 25 carefully selected small (28" to 33") jennets. Each jennet has a lovely disposition, excellent conformation and an extensive pedigree. This extensively researched breeding program yields proven top quality jacks and jennets.

Country Music's George Jones and Country Music's Garth Brooks have sired 25 National and World Champions at Halter and Performance in four countries: Canada, Europe, New Zealand and U.S.

Each Miniature Donkey foal is carefully imprinted at birth and continues to receive daily hands-on attention - haltering, tying, leading across obstacles, handling of legs, hooves, ears and mouth, grooming, and acclimation to electric clippers. Our program results in gentle, affectionate and well mannered weanlings.
