Wellground Miniature Donkeys - About Us

Wellground Farm is owned by Rob and Les Rawlins and is the home of Wellground Miniature Donkeys. 

The farm is located on the North West edge of Salisbury Plain in the South of England, nestled under the famous hillside monument of the Westbury White Horse.

Between 1999 and 2016, Rob and Les Rawlins bred elite alpacas at Wellground Farm. During that time they sourced some of the finest alpaca genetics from around the World; their breeding programme was known and admired throughout. Sadly this wonderful venture was brought to a dreadful conclusion when their alpaca herd contracted Bovine TB. It was time to move on.

Having regained their desire for keeping and breeding animals, Rob and Les found miniature donkeys and fell in love with them. 

Rob and Les have found their destiny in breeding these beautiful animals. Having previously bred alpacas with a 'step away reflex' that don't willingly indulge humans, by contrast the miniature donkey is so loving and inquisitive, they adore human interaction and they are so trusting. Miniature Donkeys give back the love that is poured over them. These donkeys are not just physically beautiful, they have the most wonderful endearing characters and they are a joy to be with.

Now, Wellground Farm has a core herd of high quality breeding female miniature donkeys and a wonderful stallion imported from the USA. Click Here to learn about Our Miniature Donkeys and Click Here to see our Donkeys For Sale.
