Our dear faithful Porsha has not been sold but is now retired. She remains here with us of course. Perhaps if the right home for her popped up we would consider letting her go but that decision will not be made lightly.
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.

And Porsha has done it again giving us a perfect little classic grey Jenny- Ophelia Rose.

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.

Adding a touch of colour, and a touch of regal at last we welcome Princess Grace to our breeding programme.
Grace has been on my wish list for some years and I thank Joan Young so much for letting her come to join our breeding programme. Full sister to Joy’s kiss of Karina we are sure, put to Satchmo, that she will give us foals of the same wonderful calibre that Karina has given us.
Gabriella- just a little like her mum!

Our dear Rosie, along with Mimosa, has thankfully come back to us at Ecclestone Valley. She is gorgeous with her pretty light red colouring and big white blaze. Again bigger than my ultimate mini size but far too nice a donkey to let go! Her baby to Satchmo in 2014 is sure to be rather lovely.
Tea Rose has done it! A very dainty, smart and pretty little light red jenny foal for her and Satchmo.

Sire – Joy’s Rock of jasper 30 1/4″
Dam – Grawood Magic Morning 35 1/4″
After regretting selling both Mimosa and Tea Rose so much I was absolutely delighted to be able to buy both of these girls back. Daughter of our dear Minka and the stunning little Jasper Mimosa is a beautifully conformed and pretty girl. She does stand at 34 3/4″ at 3 years and although this is not my ultimate mini height Mimosa having 7/8ths American lines is likely to produce the perfect miniature babies. Watch this space for her baby to Satchmo – December 2013. We can’t wait!
Little Madalaina from Mimosa and Satchmo has lived up to all expectations. Unfortunately Mimosa did not think the same and rejected her at birth. After many hours spent attempting to get her mum to accept her we gave in and we are now hand rearing this very special little girl.

Minka is a rich dark brown and a very pretty donkey. She carries 75% American lines and is grandaughter of both the original Miniature Mediterranean Donkey jacks imported into Australia from America – Riverside Sparky Magnito and Ass-pirin Acres Lil Bit of Magic.
Ecclestone Valley Magic Midnight “Eccles” was Minka’s and our first foal born. He matured into a very special boy standing at 32 1/2″ at 5 years. He is now gelded and living the life of luxury as a spoilt and well loved pet.
Dam – Grawood Carrelli ht 36 1/2″
Peppi is small and stocky having 75% American lines. She is almost black like her mother and has NLP. With her grandmother being pure black with no stripe and NLP we look forward to some very special babies with good colour in the future from Peppi.
Dam – Grawood Magic Morning ht 35 1/4″
Dear sweet Lucy is a rich dark brown, leaner type donkey. Her babies have been more thick set and are classed 100% AMMD with Lucy being 87.5% AMMD.
Sire – Shamrock Pecan
Dam – Berrabri Melanie
Rose joined us at Ecclestone Valley in 2011. She is a lovely small, thick set, solid boned Irish donkey with big soulful eyes. Being a nice light red in colour, we were not surprised she has produced a delightful red boy to our jack Clovercrest Satchmo. We look forward to more foals of this calibre in the future.
Dam – Grawood Black Beauty ht 36″
Despite being over height and registered with DABSA (donkey All Breed Society Of Australia) as a foundation jenny, Carrelli carries 50% American lines being the daughter of the well known Riverside Sparky Magnito – now owned by Marion and Peter van Dijk of Clovercrest stud NZ. She is a very dark brown, almost black. Her mother was a pure black donkey with no stripe and No Light Points (NLP).
Carrelli has shown great depth of colour in her foals with Peppi – almost black and NLP, Hush – a straight grey dun, Eli – a lovely silver grey with NLP, and Rufus – a beautiful red. Unfortunately Carrelli has grown overheight at 36 1/2″ but with her lines has thrown small foals. Her first girl Peppi has matured at a mere 32 1/4″. (See Peppi above.)
