Our Herd Sires

                  2 OUTSTANDING HERDSIRES............


At "CLOVERCREST" we are dedicated  to breeding donkeys that are true in type to the Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys from Sardinia. The original Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys were stocky working animals. We have carefully chosen our jacks with this in mind.

Our goal is to breed well balanced, attractive, sound and sturdy animals with strong bone according to the National Miniature Donkey Association Breed Standard. Both Jacks have full pedigrees with Champion bloodlines going back to the original imports from Sardinia and are themselves Breed Champions. Our  Jacks are Accredited and DNA Typed.

Both jacks are  availeble for stud duties to approved outside jennies. Stud fee $1000.-

We have sold Nestle, but have kept an outstanding son of his, Clovercrest Brunotti, as a future herd sire.


Cyder's Spartacus (Imp.USA)
Spartacus is our smallest jack at just 30" but is very solid and correct in build. His black and red heritage produces some fabulous colour in his foals.



Riverside Sparky Magnito (Imp. USA)
Sparky is our senior Jack and what a treasure he has been ! He typifies the gentle disposition and stocky conformation this breed is known for. He continues to add quality and bone to the Miniature Donkey gene pool in NZ and Australia.



Clovercrest Brunotti
We loved this little guy from the moment he was born. He combines Nestle's bloodlines with that of the Country Music line.Many Supreme Champions in his pedigree.



Reference Sire
Splendor's Nestle Special Dark This outstanding boy has been sold but we have retained his son Clovercrest Brunotte who will carry on Nestle's bloodlines.
