Nollie is one of our largest jackstock, standing just under 15 hands at the withers. We acquired her at the age of 4 in May 2014 with Nettie, her half-sister. She looks much like her sire, Oklahoma Grover, a red roan jack who started his show career in 2008 at the age of 3 with a Reserve Grand Championship at the Missouri State Fair.
Nollie is an extremely gentle, friendly donkey that wants to please. Under saddle, she is a fast walker with a smooth gait. A naturally quiet donkey, she responds especially well to calm training with gentleness and affection.
Nollie was 58 in. when arrived, but has grown since she came to our farm. She is conformationally a very correct donkey, with few of the classic conformational quirks of mammoth jackstock. Most notable is her arrow-straight back, tying smoothly into a properly-angled rump. She is deep bodied with proportionately long legs. Her head and neck is refined and proportionate to her body, with large ears and gentle eyes.
