    Welcome to Green Pond Farms

    Nestled in the rural paradise of southern Virginia, Green Pond Farms is an up and coming show stable. Green Pond was originally an unnamed cattle farm owned by my grandparents from the 1960's until my father took over the estate in 1994. My father continued raising cattle and eventually branched out and bought a few work mules from a county auction, from those two mules a love for equines blossomed. Eventually the cattle herd dwindled in numbers as mules and donkeys took over the pastures. My father has since remarried and lives close by, passing on the estate to me, my husband, and two adopted daughters. Green Pond is now trying to make a name for itself in the Equus show world. We breed and show donkeys, mules, and the occasional horse. ♥

    GPF Ragnar - American Mammoth Donkey

    Ragnar is definitely a favorite at our stable due to his in-your-pocket personality. He's always the first to greet us in the morning with his loud brays! Though he can be rather studly and bossy to other donkeys, he's a complete gentleman to his two-legged friends.

    GPF Rudy - Large Standard Donkey

    Rudy is a perfect name for this guy, because he can be very rude to an inexperienced rider whether it's invading your pockets for carrots or stepping on your toes during grooming. He's an amazing mount in the hands of someone who respects him, but doesn't take any of his nonsense.

    GPF Minos - Thoroughbred Mule

    I shouldn't pick favorites, but Minos will always be my #1. His gentle and quiet disposition is sure to melt many hearts that come to know him. His sleek athletic build and surefooted-ness makes him a great mount on any terrain. We hope to see many great things from Minos!

    GPF Isaac - Appaloosa Mule

    Isaac is definitely the head-turner at shows, most likely resulting from his loud coat and long ears entering the dressage arena! With a similar personality as his pasture-mate Minos, Isaac is always cool and collected in and out of the show ring.

    GPF Sigurd - AQH Mule

    When you think of western mules, Sigurd's body type comes to mind. With his Quarter Horse breeding this stocky gelding makes to perfect working and riding mule. We are currently deciding whether or not to place him for auction so keep your eyes peeled!

    Duncan(left) & Lydia(right) - Quarter Pony Mules

    Duncan & Lydia are the cutest pony mules you'll ever see(or maybe I'm biased.) These two are half-siblings that were bought at auction for our daughters late last year. Duncan is the younger of the two and tends to be more playful and rough in pasture, though Lydia has no problem putting him in his place when her patience runs dry. :laughing:

    SAI Naamah - Pintabian

    We recently received our first horse who came all the way from Satan's Hideout! Naamah has been the perfect lady so far, though she is still getting use to the loud braying from our donkeys and mules catching her off-guard. We can see great things in this little mare's future! ♥

  • bookmarking immediately! haha, I don't know why I hadn't realized the severe lack of donkeys around here

    .....also, hope you don't mind, but I'm stealing Duncan and Lydia - so cute

  • Oh, I'm in love with yours mules and donkeys! They are so cute <3

  • ^ Thank you both!

    Ragnar in the early hours of the morning, not too thrilled that "his" red-headed ladies are being lead right past him. :laughing:
