In 2009 Cooke Livestock sold several jennets to Belgium and Benson Ranch sold BR Lotta Chrome, a Circle C bred jack. The donkeys were purchased by Dirk Hendrikx and Johan Lateur & Sandra Pierreux. During the summer of 2009 they had great fun and success showing their new donkeys. They showed against all sizes of donkeys in open classes throughout Belgium. We know that all of you have had continued success in the following years.
Congratulations, Dirk, Johan and Sandra! Thank you for your interest in the Circle C breeding program and for your friendship.
The 2010 show year was great. We hadn't shown any donkeys since 2006 so we had to train a complete new show string and get ourselves organized and in condition! (funny how my clothes didn't fit like they did 4 years previously.) We were pleasantly surprised with the success we had at the Miniature Donkey Extravangaza, in Red Deer. The 2010 US NMDA National Show was being held in Red Bluff, California in September, so we decided to take the show string there. Wayne & Wendy Lyon sent their 3 geldings with us. Within a 3 day span, our donkeys went from being in a heated barn with blankets on to arriving in Red Bluff where the temperature was 104 degrees ! WOW! It was hot! Circle C Crimson has never forgiven me for that long trip. Fortunately, the donkeys showed well and we had a great time.
