Pure American Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys
Lovable, huggable Clovercrest miniature donkeys will change your life!
But .... what can you do with 'em???
Breeding beautiful babies
4 weeks before their due date the jenny is put into the foaling paddock next to the house. She is fitted with a foaling collar and is monitored on a video system day and night.
We rarely miss a foaling and are there for the jenny to comfort her and keep an eye on the proceedings.
At 6 months old the foal is ready to go to its new home.
For those who enjoy competing with their donkeys, miniatures can be shown in halter, in hand jumping, trail and performance classes and can be trained to pull a small cart to compete in harness..
Miniatures can be ridden by small children.
The friendliness of the Miniature make them a natural for youngsters.
By nature the miniature donkey is one of the friendliest and most affectionate of its type.
Because of their small size and gentle nature they are ideal to interact with children, the disabled and the elderly.
Our little jenny Dewette was the first donkey in NZ to be used in the outreach programme visiting the elderly in rest homes and the sick in hospitals.
We are also using our senior jack Sparky for this work and he has proven to be a natural born therapist! He is gentle, well mannered and loves the attention.
Just loving them
