Poplargrove Stud imported the ONLY two micro jacks in Australia with

NMDA - American NATIONAL SHOW winning titles

Our Jacks are the BEST !

Then add to that... ALL our direct USA Imported Micro, Wooly and Dark Spot Jennies from world renown American studs !

There's nothing like our babies in Australia or N.Z. Micro Extreme wooly foals

Proud Breeders Of Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys

You be the judge !

Don't take our word for it - or the hearsay of others.

Check how many studs you can visit & see in person

their jacks running with their jenny's with foals at foot

knowing the Jack is not only safe

but really protects and treasures the foals...

Come and see for yourself how quiet,

loving & well conformed our miniature donkeys are.

View their heights, colors and sneak a cuddle.

Our stud - the breeding facilities, stables & paddocks

all reflect the care, time & pride we have in our animals.

Rest in Peace our beloved Jazz - the most beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback creation ever made
