With the death of Darryl Lockard in October of 2007,the American Mammoth Jackstock breed lost a dedicated supporter and a long time enthusiast. Those of us that knew him lost a special friend.
Over the past two decades Darryl had engaged in buying, selling, trading, breeding and other techniques to improve his donkey herd with the intent of producing and/or acquiring some quality large black mammoth jennets. I was privileged to serve as an advisor, a critic and a sounding board for Darryl during much of this time. His efforts were not in vain. By the end of 2006 Darryl had produced a small nucleus of breeding jennets that could stand in anyone’s herd and would “stand out” in most, if not all herds.
Annie Ruth, Ethel and I are humbled by and very appreciative of the confidence placed in and generosity extended to us by Darryl’s wife Jan and their daughters Michelle, Melissa and Darrylyn for allowing us to add this small group of breeding jennets to our herd and permitting us the opportunity to manage the dispensation of the others. We hope that our actions with each animal will lead to the possibility for other mammoth donkey enthusiasts to recognize and benefit from Darryl’s efforts.
These animals can be viewed on our Holding Pen page.
