In the mid 90's I became passionate about miniature hybrid donkey/equine crosses, after rescuing a Welsh Pony Hinny, a hybrid cross of a equine stallion sire, and a donkey jenny. A mule hybrid is from a Donkey sire crossed with a equine mare. Her name was Martha, I found her standing thinly in a muddy small pen, she came in poor shape, filled with worms, past due on shots, she cost a whole $50.00 to bring her home. After putting weight on her, addressing all her health needs, making great friends, and getting one of the best corrective farriers in the county to work with her feet, she blossomed. The day came when it was O.K. to slip on Martha's wide fattened back to see what she might know. What I found that special day was, I had much to learn, for she was the best mount I have ever been on. Like all passions I get involved with, it soon became an obsession, to learn how had Martha come to be, so instantly I turned to research the genetics involved in this cross. I met with Dr. Tex Taylor over the Donkey & Mule research program at Texas A & M. After many many discussions, study, meetings, trips to A&M, and his farm, I knew I was at the very tip of the education ice burg with Donkeys, Mules, and Hinnies. Thank you Tex! To this day, I'm still at the tip of this great passion. For more information, I'm always happy to talk with you, and a great link from ADMS, ( American Donkey & Mule Society ) can be found here,,

About the same period I became hooked on miniature donkeys, I also fell in love with a weanling pinto Miniature Horse colt who was foaled by El Rancho Loco. The colt came to be named ERLs Phantom. He did very well in his limited showing by me, including Model Stallion at The Houston Livestock Show, until retirment from a eye injury as a yearling in the pasture at play. I was invited to handle a few babes, and foal watch at El Rancho Loco while they had to be away. Phantom was one of those first youngsters born that year. He stole my heart from the first moment, (noteing before I met him, I swore I would NEVER own a Miniature Horse, until I saw this pretty perfect small spotted big horse copy ;), and I have never regreted allowing his love into my heart. I could not believe he was on the sales list, I kept asking repeatedly, "are you sure"? I know now he was always meant to be here, our paths were always ment to be as one. We truly hold very special memories together, as we create more each day. Not only is he handsome, as well smart, he's is the sweetest man at hand, or in the pasture with mares, jennies or babes, or people, large and small. I think it is this wonderful diposition with his great intelligence that jennies allow his cover. In fact they adore him just as his mares, all who meet him, and I do. Please meet R main beloved boy toy Miniature Horse, and Miniature Hinny herd sire,
ERLs Phantom.
