Welcome to
Hamerton Donkey Stud


Registered Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys have been bred at Hamerton for many years.  These charming little animals make wonderful pets, and our foals have found homes all over the country.  Lots of human attention from birth and plenty of contact with other animals ensures every foal will make the perfect addition to the family; companions for people of all ages. 
The stud has been expanded in recent years with the arrival of both jacks and jennies, imported from several selected bloodlines in the USA.  Each year a number of foals should be available, so please contact us for more information.  Visitors are always welcome, by appointment please.
In addition to the promotion of the Miniature Mediterranean Donkey, two other projects are under way, both involving the importation of new stock.  We are delighted to be able to take part in the conservation of the Baudet-du-Poitou, and have brought a number of animals over from France to form the nucleus of our herd.  Equally exciting is the arrival of our first spotted American Mammoth Jackstock, which we hope will see the establishment of the World's largest donkey breed in England. 
All our donkeys of all three breeds are quality pedigree animals, registered with one or more of the breed societies listed on our links page.  Nowhere else will you see such a variety of donkeys ranging from 29" Miniature jack 'Carl Perkins' to 61" Mammoth jack 'Estiffanugla'.
