Former local donkey to be on stamp

“Pictured here is our late grandson, Dozer Beaver, who truly enjoyed riding on Sharpy while both were here on our farm,” said Garrett. 

On May 17, 2021 the United States Postal Service will be releasing the Heritage Breeds stamps.  Among the stamps will be a picture of a donkey named Oklahoma Sharpy that came from Bill, Gina and Becca Garrett’s farm, Garrett Mammoth Jackstock, in Stilwell, Oklahoma. Sharpy was sold to some friends in Guilford, Connecticut, Kimberly Brockett, Mike Cappelli and their son Drew. The photographer, Aliza Eliazarov came to their farm from New York City to photograph their donkeys. In her book, On the Farm Heritage & Heralded Animal Breeds in Portraits & Stories, Sharpy is pictured.
