Daisydowns Miniature Donkey Farm lies in a tropical valley in the Hinterland on the Gold Coast Queensland, Australia.
Our Story So Far.....................
We are a small farm of 25 acres and since 2000 dedicated to breeding only 100% American Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys. Our first American Mediterranean Miniature Donkey to arrive was a foal Taranaganba Harley who was to be our future herd sire. Also that year we imported three new bloodlines from "Copperas Creek " Illinois USA . Our brood jennets were Lucky Penny, Juliet, Sweetpea and Poppy who produced 18 beautiful little Daisydown's foals.
Our recent retirement has brought about many changes in our lives and direction. In early 2012 after 10 Years of producing 100% American Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys at Daisydowns we decided to cease breeding and all breeding stock has now been sold to other Australian Stud Farms .
Our first love has been our donkeys, with only a small herd we were able to spend time loving, rearing and breeding this remarkable little creature. We believe a loving temperament is essential and that is what we looked for in a blood line first, then conformation , size and colour. We are very thankful for the support and encouragement from our donkey friends from Australia, USA. and Canada.
Yes we still have Donkeys ..............
Our last three foals were adorable jack foals who stole our hearts big time & we simply could not part with any of them ........so we now have Bracken, Briar and Ash all cheeky geldings joining our resident gelding Willow at Daisydowns.
