Our primary aim is to create a top quality, small, stocky, donkey with correct conformation, relaxed personality and varied colours.
These donkeys can be Woolly, Irish, or American Miniature Mediterranean and range in size fom 30" to 36".
Our goal as breeders is to promote and breed, healthy, happy donkeys, true to type with good confirmation, and lovely temperaments.
Our Breeding Program
Example of a Micro donkey - 30" and under.
We subscribe to the DABSA and ADMS Code of Ethics for all our breeding and donkey care activities.
MICRO MINIATURE BREEDING PROGRAM
An example of a Miniature Meditarranean donkey. 31" - 36": at the wither.
Our goal is to breed top quality, correctly conformed, healthy Micro Miniature donkeys, ranging from 28" to 30" at maturity.
A Micro Miniature donkey is not recognised as a class breed, but is a size definition of a developing group of donkeys that are no larger than 30" to the wither.
Our 2 year old micro miniature Jack is Amelia Rise Talledaga, predominantly sorrel in colour and tiny at 27" at the wither.
His sire is Joy's Rock of Jasper 30", and dam Clovercrest Allegra, 29".

OUR BIG BOYS
We also have a new aspect added into our donkeys here at Amelia Rise - Large Geldings!
In addition to our breeding program we now have a 50% Mammoth donkey - Tex, who is in the process of being broken in to saddle for riding. Tex stands 54" at the wither and seems HUGE when alongside our miniature donkeys.
We also recently aquired Amos, a small standard 40" gelding. He has been trained in harness.
