We started the Lease
for Life program to find loving homes for our retired donkeys. It is a win, win situation. We place our donkeys in wonderful
homes and the new owners get friendly, healthy donkeys for a reasonable adoption fee. The donkeys are up to date on health
and hoof care and we do our best to match each one’s personality to the new situation. The donkeys are not sold, but
leased to the new home for a one time negotiable fee which covers recent hoof trim, feed, new halter and lead. It does not
include health papers, coggins or transport costs. Health records and feeding instructions will be sent with donkeys. The
leasing home agrees to provide adequate shelter, food, health care and to provide updates a minimum of every six months. Jennets
leased are NOT to be used for breeding unless arrangements are made to that effect.We do have four jennets that we will consider
leasing with breeding rights,they must go in pairs. The new home also agrees to allow Braethorn to visit at any time.
If the new home ever can’t keep the donkeys, they are to be returned to Braethorn.
We have retired brood jennets and a gelding available through our Lease for Life program. We
may consider placing a few breeding quality jennets, approved homes only.
The following are available
