Welcome to the website of the Gamlingay Donkey Stud. We are a small stud based in Bedfordshire, UK and specialise in the best of Standard and Mediterranean Miniature donkeys.


We have been breeding, producing and exhibiting Standard donkeys since 1972 and have had many successes. We have bred, produced or exhibited 6 National Supreme Champions at the Donkey Breeed Society's National Show and many donkeys from our bloodlines continue to excel in the show ring. A well put together donkey with the prettiest of heads is our signature.


Having done it all, and won it all, some several times over, with Standard donkeys, we have now expanded our focus into 'doing it all again, but this time with Mediterranean Miniature donkeys.We are now applying our years of expertise and experience, gained with our Standards to our Miniatures. Our first Miniatures, a colt and a filly, were brought in as imports from the USA in 2008. We first exhibited them in 2009 and our colt became the National Miniature Champion at the Mediterranean Miniature Donkey Association's National Championship Show - so we made a pretty good start! What's more, he did it again, becoming National Miniature Champion once more in 2010.


This site tells you more about our  Standards and our  Miniatures, together with a bit of our history, some of our successes and lots of photos.


We occasionally have both Standard and Miniature donkeys for sale, so check out our 'For Sale' page. Every donkey we sell will be fully passported and registered with either The Donkey Breed Society (DBS) and / or The Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys Association (MMDA). They will all have had the best of care, being regularly wormed, had regular hoof care and been given the best of attention. If you are interested in breeding or showing, our bloodlines are some of the best, however our donkeys love being family pets as much as they do being shown so please get in touch to discuss your interests.
