Our herd sires, Jet Pilot, Bronson, Main Event, and Pepi have produced many outstanding jennet offspring that would not be available to us from another breeder. If retained, these jennets could not be bred to any of our jacks. After searching far and wide for an exceptional black jack with a pedigree unrelated to any of our stock, Itsy Bitsy Burro Company Miniature Donkeys purchased Sunset Acres Smart Derby in May 2005. With the addition of Derby to our breeding program, we are able to retain any of our jennets and breed them to him.

Smart Derby moved to Texas the middle of May 2005 from Nebraska. His first show was in July 2005 in Shelbyville, Tennessee where he placed 3rd in the Yearling Jack Class. We showed him next in August 2005 in Conroe, Texas at our first two judge NMDA show. Both judges confirmed our opinion of Derby's outstanding qualities. He is now one of our CHAMPION HERD SIRES!

Smart Derby won 1st Place Yearling Jack under both Judge Larry Parnell and Judge Sami Scheuring. Derby was then awarded NMDA Junior Champion Jack by both judges at the NMDA Lone Star State of Stars Miniature Donkey Show in Conroe, Texas, August 2005.

Smart Derby won 2nd Place Yearling Jack at the 2005 Texas State Fair NMDA Show.
