Ecclestone Valley Little Miss Show Baby

D.O.B. 12.10.2018
Sire – Clovercrest Satchmo (Imp NZ)
Dam – Winterwood’s Mimi

A delightful welcome to Missie. She has been named Little Miss Show Baby in honour and in memory of her gorgeous grandmother and mother of our herd sire Clovercrest Satchmo, Ass-Pirin Acres Show Baby. Show Baby was imported from USA into New Zealand by Peter and Marion van Dijk and was admired by many. Her legacy lives on her beautiful progeny. Little Miss Show baby has a big name to live up to but we are confident she may be able to do just that.

Gosh, we are so excited to welcome our first Half Dollar baby from a Satchmo daughter and a first baby for our dear Emmy Lou.

Ecclestone Valley The Duchess (Meghan) (Sold)

D.O.B. 19.05.2018
Sire – Quarter Moon Half Dollar ( Imp USA)
Dam – Ecclestone Valley Paella

Well after Prince Harry arriving the day before the big royal wedding this little poppet arrived about a half an hour before Meghan Markle arrived at the steps of St George’s Chapel. What could we possibly call her but The Duchess or Meghan or Megs for short! Another great little donkey with a typical Half Dollar head.

To make things even more perfect Meghan is travelling to New Zealand with Prince Harry after weaning to reside with him at Cherrybank Stud. They won’t be making babies together, however Meghan too will add to the gene pool in NZ.

Ecclestone Valley Prince Harry (Sold)

D.O.B. 18.05.18
Sire – Quarter Moon Half Dollar
Dam – Winterwood’s Delilah

So named Prince Harry due to being born the morning before the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. Being the redhead he is we just could not resist. He is absolutely divine. Such heavy boning, lovely straight legs, big bright expressive eyes and a beautiful head to match.
Prince Harry will be travelling as a future herd sire to Cherry Bank Stud in New Zealand after weaning. He will be a total new line for New Zealand. Congratulations Beth McVery we are sure Harry will not disappoint.

Ecclestone Valley Red Rock “Rocco” (SOLD)

D.O.B 29.01.2018

Another quality red boy for Violet and Satchmo. This little guy is showing all the attributes for a great herd sire. He will be for sale as such to either a knowledgeable home or one that is willing to learn all that is needed to accommodate a breeding jack.
