The first imported Miniature Mediterranean Donkey from America to Australia was our Sorrel Jack  Riverside's Sparky Magnito of Asspirin Acres, who after a successful breeding program was sold to Clovercrest  Stud in New Zealand.

Our second imported Jack was Chateaus Millenium Romulus from New Zealand his sire being Lil"Half Pints Lil Caesar 11  IMP USA. This super fine boned Jack complimented Sparky's progeny, allowing the progression of our long term breeding program .Romulus has now been sold to Chris in NSW

Our third imported Jack was Hickory Hills Cocoa Bean 28" from Texas  USA. Cocoa with perfect conformation was purchased specifically  to reduce the height of the above progeny. Once this was achieved  Cocoa was  sold to Chris in NSW .

The most exciting moment of our breeding program to date, was the importing of our current Jack Heikens Ark Clint Mar from USA.  This 4 year old PERFECTLY BALANCED  JACK  stands a mere 26.75"   We have 10 magnificent tiny foals on the ground . Heights from17" to 19". 

In March 2010 we imported from Texas N & D's Lonestar Cowboy's Latigo a tiny broken coloured 27.75" 3 year old Jack. . THEN CAME MGF GORKY PARK  STUNNING SPOTTED EXTREME WOOLLY JACK after retaining 4 of his foals he was sold to Amelia Rise Donkey Stud.  With this combination we consider MISSION ACCOMPLISHED...........

                                  BUYER  BEWARE  DO NOT BE MISLEAD

AMERICAN MINIATURE MEDITERRANEAN DONKEYS IN AUSTRALIA ARE NOT A "BREED"

ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN DONKEY AND MULE SOCIETY.

THEY ARE MINIATURE MEDITERRANEAN DONKEYS BRED IN USA AND IMPORTED TO AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND.  MINIATURE MEDITERRANEAN DONKEYS IN USA HAVE BEEN  BRED DOWN OVER APPROX 50 YEARS FROM THE ORIGINAL 20 PLUS IMPORTS FROM SICILY AND SARDINIA  AND APPROX 20 FROM IRELAND  WITH THE INFUSION OF LOCAL SMALL DONKEYS .  THESE LITTLE DONKEYS ARE NOT A BREED THEY ARE A HEIGHT REGISTER .  PERCENTAGE DOES NOT COME INTO THE EQUATION IF THE DONKEY IS GENUINELY 36" OR UNDER (INTERNATIONAL STANDARD HEIGHT) AND MEETS THE STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE  IT IS A MINIATURE DONKEY . SOME ORGANISATIONS ARE  MISLEADING NEW BUYERS.  I WILL NOT CONFORM TO INCORRECT INFORMATION .   FOR MORE INFORMATION GO TO THE AMERICAN DONKEY AND MULE SOCIETY WEB PAGE.   www.lovelongears.com also excellent reading on the origin  of the Miniature Mediterranean Donkey and the influence the broken coloured Irish donkeys had on today's miniature donkeys go to : www.quartermoonranch.com/origin.html
