    Two Miniature Donkeys: Country Music's Terri Hendrix and Country Music's Sara Evans. Jim and Rhetta McAlister have been breeding outstanding show and breeding quality miniature donkeys for over two decades at their ranch, Country Music Miniature Donkeys, located thirty miles west of Austin in Spicewood, amongst the rolling landscape of the Texas Hill Country. Their herd sires, Country Music's George Jones (30"/dark brown) and his son, Country Music's Garth Brooks (30"/dark brown), have a band of twenty-five small (28" to 33"), carefully selected jennets, each with a charming disposition, excellent conformation, and an extensive pedigree, yielding top quality jacks and jennets.

    Each foal is carefully imprinted at birth and continues receiving daily hands-on attention - haltering, tying, leading across obstacles, handling of legs, hooves, ears and mouth, grooming, and acclimation to electric clippers yielding gentle, affectionate, and well-mannered weanlings. By four months of age, each weanling has had approximately 30 hours of INDIVIDUAL TRAINING. They are ready to show and to make safe, beautifully mannered, affectionate companions for all ages .

    The McAlisters have spent twenty-five years refining their mini donkey breeding program. Country Music's George Jones and Country Music's Garth Brooks have sired over twenty-five national and world champions at halter and performance in Canada, Europe, New Zealand, and the United States.
