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.

100% AMMD     (Imp USA)    ht 33″

Sire – Lazy Nissen Foxworthy     ht 31 1/4″

Although our dear Cyders Red Violet is no longer with us she deserves top honours on our Jenny page and will stay here in her memory.

RIP Violet 28.02.2018 xxoo

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.

Red Poppy is extra special in that she is the only Jenny foal out of our precious imported USA girl Cyder’s Red Violet. She is the brilliant red russet colour of her mum with a small star. Her pedigree full of reds and blacks. She has grown into a lovely well rounded girl. She is line bred to the rather famous and well recognised boy Lazy Nissan Foxworthy. We are so thrilled with this cross of Violet with Satchmo.
Looking forward to putting her to QM Half Dollar for a 2019 foal.
