Donkeys for sale

Miniature Donkeys


Clovercrest Saatchi – registered Section A, American Mediterranean Miniature gelding
Date of Birth - 6 November 2017 Registration Number 187T
Saatchi is an attractive red miniature gelding. His sire is Clovercrest Brunotti and his dam is Ass-Pirin Acres Show Baby who was imported from the USA


Clovercrest Chiara – registered section A, American Mediterranean Miniature jenny
Date of birth – 27 November 2017 Registration Number 191T
Chiara is a grey dun miniature jenny. Her sire is Clovercrest Brunotti and her dam is Clovercrest Sweet Carlotta.

Saatchi and Chiara are both very affectionate and come running when someone comes into their paddock. They adore receiving pats, cuddles and scratches. They also love being brushed daily and are very good when getting their hooves picked out or trimmed. They are both happy to be haltered and lead well for walks. Still being youngsters they love to play together and have ‘jolly balls’ which are thrown around frequently. Their all-time favourite toy is a mangled looking object that was a feed bucket in a past life. A very useful toy to play tug of war with and it also gets thrown around a lot. Early evening is the favourite time of day for racing around and playing chase with each other. They are curious little donkeys and have no fear of lawnmowers, tractors and any other noisy farm equipment. Of the two Chiara the little jenny is the more mischievous. She is the one that will purposely tip over the wheelbarrow when your back is turned. These two donkeys are currently in Roxburgh however they are good little travellers as they moved from the far North to the lower region of the mainland (South Island)
