Posie and Lil Red were our first 2 mini-donkeys...they hold a special place in our hearts!

Feather Ridge's Posie ("Posie")
DOB: June 1, 2012
Color: Dark Red
Dam: MGF Venus Regina (34" Dark Red)
Sire: My World Tyler (Dark Sorrel)
Info: MDR #66652; Microchip on file
Posie is a really nice jennet that was purchased from ASSphalt Acres and was our very first mini-donkey. She helped us learn about how to love and appreciate mini-donkeys and holds a special place in our hearts. She seems to enjoy a good brushing and always finds just the right place across our backs to affectionately place her head while giving us "donkey hugs".
Posie carries an excellent background with Rearview's Red Rock, Windcrest Cherries Jubliee, and The Fireman in her pedigree.

CbarChass Always Dreaming Red ("Li'l Red")
DOB: May 6, 2017
Color: Dark Red
Dam: The Elms Fifty's Flair (31 3/4" Dark Red)
Sire: Sunset Acres Radio Flyer (32 7/8" Dark Red)
Info: MDR #67902; Microchip on file
Affectionately known as Li'l Red, she is a special girl out of great, proven bloodlines. She is a well-built jenny with plenty of "chrome" that has matured nicely. She was one of our first 2 mini-donkeys who actually nudged under Bonnie's arm while we were considering a different jennet...as if to say "no, take me, please". We look for her to add strong confirmation and diversity to our sorrel bloodlines.
Miller's Meadow Glamour Girl (we call her "GG")
DOB: June 1, 2016
Color: Dark Red
Dam: J&E Florenza
Sire: Li'l Angels Crimson Tide
Info: MDR #67690; Microchip on file
There's just something special about having a Crimson Tide daughter at our farm in Alabama...Roll Tide! Tide is a spectacular jack, winning many, many championships in the show ring. He passed on his great conformation to Glamour Girl. We love her wide stripe, and we know she will give us many beautiful foals in the future.

Show update: 7/7/2016 Bonnie Fire won the yearling jennet class at the Great Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee, and then went on to become the Reserve Junior Champion Donkey of the entire Show. Bonnie Fire has proven that she can hang with the best as a show donkey. Good job, girl!
Ravenwood Blossom ("Blossom")
DOB: May 1, 2010
Color: Light Red/Gray w/Star
Dam: Marek's Adalida Anita (32" Gray)
Sire: Ravenwood Zeus III (31" Light Red)
Info: MDR #60692; Microchip on file
We were looking for a light-colored jennet to add to our farm who had great disposition, great conformation and would be an ideal fit for our breeding program. We looked long and hard before we found her at Assphalt Acres and had to bring her home.
Blossom has a stellar foaling history and has even fostered a couple of mini donkey foals whose mothers had ignored them for some reason after foaling. She is one of the most friendly, loving and labile jennets at our farm and has been featured in local church Christmas programs in Alabama, live and on-stage.

ASSphalt Acres Red Jewel ("Jewel")
DOB: July 12, 2019
Dam: ASSphalt Acres Miss B Haven (32 1/4" Dark Red)
Sire: CBarChass Ruffy Jr. (RJ) (32" Red)
Info: MDR #70407; Microchip on file
Jewel is an RJ daughter (RJ is owned by Rolling D Farm) and he has performed really well in the show ring. Jewel's mom, Miss B Haven hasn't done too badly herself. Wanting to use the RJ initials to honor her dad, she was named Red Jewel. We plan to show Jewel in 2023 and will be keeping her at Crossback to continue to improve our gene pool of winners.
Jewel's Sire, "RJ" at work
CrossBack Farm's Violet ("Violet")
DOB: July 5, 2020
Dam: Feather Ridge's Posie (32 1/4" Dark Red)
Sire: ASSphalt Acres Cracker Jack (31" Black)
Info: MDR #xxxxx; Microchip on file
Violet holds a special place in our hearts...she was our first foal and we have had the chance to watch her grow up from her first breath. Besides her great confirmation, scalloped muzzle and wonderful personality, she has a forever place at our farm with great memories of all she has taught us about the wonderful world of young, precious mini-donks.
