Located in Eastern Oklahoma, more
currently referred to as Green Country, is GARRETT MAMMOTH JACKSTOCK in
Stilwell, Oklahoma. Bill and Gina Garrett along with their daughter Becca
and Grandson Dozer operate the family owned business. Raising and
maintaining their herd of 100 Mammoth Donkeys keeps everyone busy.
Starting over 35 years ago with one jack and several mares our farm has
revolutionized into Oklahoma’s largest herd of Mammoth Donkeys. In the
infancy of our farm we found it harder and harder to find quality mammoth
jacks, so we purchased a few mammoth jennies to have jack foals coming on
at all times. We now raise about 30 colts every year to keep up the
growing demand of these extraordinary equines. Our love for the donkeys
grew over the horses and mules so we choose to specialize in the donkeys.
We have five herd sires that we will be using this Spring. These five
jacks are 15 to 16 hands tall and display and exemplify many of the
nations top bloodlines. We have sons and daughters available at all times
for your inspection.
In the mid 1980's we began breaking saddle donkeys to ride. Having a broke
to ride donkey was unheard of during that time and many people laughed and
joked when we went on rides on our mammoth donkeys. Bill always said from
day one that the demand for these wonderful riding donkeys would someday
be the superior way to go on a trail ride. Time has proven him correct and
the demand for a saddle donkey has increased greatly over the years. Bill
always tells our customers that if you are past the point in your life of
wanting to ride a cutting horse or mule and just to take a ride and enjoy
the scenery the saddle donkey is the ride of choice. The growing
popularity of these animals is keeping us, busy riding and training daily. We have had several national
winners of the donkey race in Bishop California, 1st place ribbon at the
Great Celebration Show this year in the donkey barrel race in Shelbyville,
Tennessee, Grand Champion Jennet and Reserve Grand Champion Jack at the
Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, Missouri this year and many other winners
at various shows across the nation in many different classes.
We welcome all visitors to come look, whether you are a serious buyer or
just a curious looker. We invite you to ride our saddle donkeys and find
out for yourself what a comfortable rocking chair ride really is. We will
be happy to provide you with a reference list of our customers, many of
which we have made lifelong friendships.
Whatever your needs or desires are for a mammoth donkey we take pride in
our animals to make the perfect fit just for you.
