FOALS - our new arrivals !

Stay tuned - page being updated - new computer and old software uggh!


What you get when you buy from Poplargrove Stud

We are a small boutique stud. This is not just a caption - but a reality.

ALL our foals are well handled, lead, are regularly wormed & have their feet trimmed and come to you as such; prepared for their new homes.

When you apply to us about one of our donkeys, be it a baby or a mature animal; we will send you complete photos of them on lead showing their full conformation. And we will give you our honest critique of their conformation temperament etc.

We do not want one off sales - we want repeat buyers who love their animals as much as we do; and who know that they can trust us.

We intentionally only have a small number of stock - so we ensure our animals have daily interaction, and that we have the time for each animal to meet our high standards of animal husbandry and training.

Simple really ?

As a buyer parting with your money, you should expect the same complete package from any stud. Worming regimes, vaccinations, registration [ not an extra ] and a full set of photos of the animals showing their conformation ON lead.

After all, if one is going to breed and call oneself a 'stud'; then the buyer should expect a high level of commitment to each and every animal.

We welcome inspections - we want you to come and see our stunning foals. Their wonderful cuddly temperaments, and that of their parents ie. The sire and dam whose genetics imparted that temperament and conformation.

Well, l can only say we have been blessed with this years foals... we are truly so grateful for good births, and; healthy foals & dams. As a breeder that's what it's all about. The conformation, temperament, color and magnificence of these foals is what comes with years of research, planned matings and genetic selection.

We call it great breeding !
