Our jennies are well loved pets and are treated with respect and sensitivity at all times ensuring for a contented little herd. In keeping with our aim to breed only the classic Miniature Mediterranean Donkey plus in keeping with the National Miniature Donkey Association of America breed type we expect our present Jennies to produce foals which will mature at between 31″ and 34″ in height and to have quality babies with good strong bone, good conformation, with friendly, well adjusted temperaments and dispositions.
To reach this goal of breed type over the years we have rather reluctantly had to part with a few of our dear, faithful and original Jennies – These girls are now on our Sold Jennies page.
Colour is not our main prerogative but with our jack Clovercrest Satchmo and most of current girls carrying the red gene we are very happy to be producing some nice quality red donkeys.
Below are all our present Jennies pictured with their respective foals.
Sire – Lazy Nissen Foxworthy ht 31 1/4″
Dam – Cyder’s Cherokee ht 34 1/2″
Originally imported from USA to Clovercrest stud, New Zealand, and joining us in March 2012- Red Violet is daughter of the well known multi champion American jack Lazy Nissen Foxworthy. Her colour is magnificent – a brilliant, vibrant red. Violet makes an exceptional and exciting addition to our stud with her pedigree (her lines trace back to the original imports into America), conformation, colour and temperament all being outstanding.
Dear Violet has given us this perfect classic light grey dun jack foal. Antipodes is our last foal from Chateau’s Texas Ambassador – a perfect and delightful little boy.
Wow Violet and Satchmo the perfect combination to produce this little stunner- Echo of Red!
Sire – Chateau’s Country Casanova (Imp NZ) ht 30”
Dam – Chateau’s Millenium Special Angel (Imp NZ) ht 33”
Sweet natured and very elegant Karina joined us at Ecclestone Valley in 2009. Karina carries the NLP gene from her sire Chateau’s Casanova. We were excited in anticipation to meet her first born foal to Clovercrest Satchmo and couldn’t be more impressed with the arrival of Sirocco. He is an exceptional little boy with a sweet dainty head and wonderful conformation all round. We expect Karina to continue to produce special little babes of this quality.

At last a gorgeous little red girl for Karina!

Dam – Ass-pirin Acres Shania ( Imp. USA) ht 29 1/2”
Porsha is our very special and precious girl. She carries 100% American lines and is of stocky drafty type. We were absolutely thrilled with her long awaited first baby Ecclestone Valley Zebedee born 2008, but even more delighted with her Jenny foal Paella born in 2010. Paella has been retained to enhance the future quality breeding stock of Ecclestone Valley.

Sire – Country Music’s Spade Cooley (Imp USA) ht 31 1/2″
Dam – Country Music Billie Jo Spears (Imp USA) ht 31 1/2″
Bobbie Jo is from the famous American Country Music Lines. Her Sire Country Music’s Spade Cooley and Dam Country Music’s Billie Jo Spears are both multi-award winning champions, Billie Jo twice winning national supreme mini donkey. Bobbie Jo has done exceptionally well in the show ring as a weanling, the most prestigious award being Overall Champion beating Clovercrest’s own National Supreme mini donkey Slendors Nestle and the Canadian Mammoth import Windy Ridge Black Mariah.
As highly anticipated Bobbie Jo and Satchmo have produced an exceptional little babe. Very small and superb conformation. We love her!

Tallulah is so sweet! She is stocky with lovely conformation. I love her light silver grey colour and she has a nice thick curly coat in winter. Being 87.5% AMMD Tallulah’s foals will be registered 100% AMMD. Hopefully early 2014 will see our first foal from Tallulah.

Just as we expected an exceptional little man from Tallulah and Satchmo. He’s tiny stocky and square with fantastic conformation. His colouring unusual – like his mum but more red than her.
Fantastic! Sophia- A little girl clone of Tallulah’s boy last year. What more could we ask for!

Thank you again Peter and Marion of Clovercrest stud in New Zealand for another classy little girl. Half sister to Bobbie Jo, her sire is the stunning multi award winning Nestle. We are thrilled to be able to bring Nestle’s lines to Australia. La Bella Donna has the same outgoing charming personality like all Billie Jo Spears babes. A delight to have on Ecclestone Valley soil.
Sire Clovercrest Satchmo (Imp NZ) Ht 31 1/4″
Dam Ecclestone valley Mimosa 35″
Madalaina is a bit special being our hand raised girl who was rejected by her mother at birth. We have been very aware of making her know she is a donkey and she has developed into a lovely well balanced girl both mentally and physically.
She is stunning red in colour and very nice conformation. We love our Madalaina of course!
