Copper Star Miniature Donkeys 
Fairfield, Pennsylvania

Going Against The Grain Since 2005

Welcome to Copper Star Miniature Donkeys
The miniature donkeys are raised by 
Emily Hoponick. Copper Star Farm's vision is to breed donkeys with correct conformation, various colors, sweet personalities, and a high pedigree. The Copper Star herd has moved and is now located in senic Fairfield, PA. You will not find a herd of such quality, conformation, and pedigree in the tri-state area.
We specialize in donkeys with:
Black no light points with blue eyes
Black with light points
Dark chocolate with no light points
Fully Frosted White (Wooly) 
Red and White Spotted (Wooly)
Spotted Standards bred to a wooly or spotted jack
Forehead stars and the blue-eye or blue-eye dilute gene are very prevalent in many of our donkeys. 

We are now located at the new farm in Faifield, PA right over the Emmitsburg, MD border. 

We have bred all of our jennets for the upcoming 2015 spring/ summer/ fall foaling season

I am truly lucky to have found the most wonderful people to buy my donkeys! I hope that 2015 turns out to be as good of a year. I hope to meet new donkey people, reunite with old friends and restore my farm to be "one of the best kept secrets" in donkeys! 
This is a labor of love and I could not do it without the support of my family and friends. - Thank you!
