Muttley Ranch was born in December of 2016. We (Bill and Michelle Henderson) were looking to get out of the suburbs of Houston and buy some property, maybe get some goats... maybe a few cows. After a year of searching for the right place, we found a property that checked all the boxes we were looking for. It also came with 3 miniature donkeys (a jack and 2 jennies) who instantly captured our hearts. The goats and cows were put on hold and a new, different adventure began.
Fast forward 2 1/2 years and the family has grown. We purchased 3 new jennies in mid-2017 and now with new babies all around we have grown to 12 donkeys. We have also added 5 goats, which is now 7 thanks to the birth of 2 kids in 2019.
Now it's time to flatten our growth out, so we created this website to reach out to others who are considering donkeys as pets for their children or guardians of their goats or sheep.
All of our donkeys are eligible for registration with the American Donkey and Mule Association and are vaccinated before they are offered for sale. They are available when they are weaned which is generally at 5-6 months of age.
