LOLEK is the result of a strong pairing of red color genetics and famous pedigrees. I have to give a lot the credit to the hard work of so many breeders who put in years of deliberate effort to set us up for the creation of a donkey like her! A quick peak at her pedigree will show you names like The Fireman, LN Redsonnehi, MGF Black Knight, SS Red Lightening, Valentino 50, Circle C X'treme, MGF Prairie Fire, and so many more. He legs are stick straight, and her coat is smooth and fluffy, and boasts a bright red dorsal cross. Ears? Boy, does she have long ones!  


Providence Cottage LOLEK is charming in every regard - from her gay trot in the paddock to her perky approach when you open the gate. She has a drafty, strong sire and an elegant, up-headed dam, both here at Providence Cottage Farm. My best guess is she'll mature at around 30-31" and will be on the small end of the Miniature Mediterranean Donkey size spectrum. She was imprinted just hours after birth, and her dam, The Elms SPICE CAKE, has an exceptional knack for socializing her foals and turning them into personable, teachable, mild-mannered donkeys. On reaching maturity, there is no doubt in my mind that she will be a strong asset to any breeding program that wants to perpetuate a strong legacy of conformation, temperament, and red color. In the meantime, she promises to deliver wonderful things as a pet or show jennet. 

We named her "LOLEK" after the great Pope John Paul II, who had that nickname as a young Polish boy. She was born near his birthday, and seems to emulate his attentive, engaged, hopeful view of our modern era. 


Providence Cottage LOLEK is priced to sell at weaning.
