About Us

Bruce, born and raised on a dairy farm, had spent his whole life within the industry until recently, when a pivotal decision was made to change direction.


For Bruce, breeding and raising dairy/beef is in the blood, he has always striven for excellent genetics, resulting in quiet temperaments in all his animals.

Dimi, born and raised in Australia, has 15 years’ experience in the equine industry.


“We wanted to create something unique and discussed the possibility of breeding miniature animals as a business. What we failed to factor in however, was how these little animals would steal our hearts. Right from the start they captivated and impressed us. It is our aspiration to develop Tantillus Stud as a centre of excellence for the breeding of “these little darlings”


Having thought long and hard for a name - we decided on Tantillus

(Latin for “So little - So small”)


And so from such small beginnings, Tantillus Stud was birthed


Your One Stop for Miniature Stock.

We hope to help others on a similar journey.

Whenever asked for advice our response is always:

Look after your young stock - they are your future!
