*************

ABOUT OUR STUD
 
WE ARE A SMALL STUD BASED NEAR WEM, IN NORTH SHROPSHIRE. OUR AIM IS TO BREED QUALITY MINIATURE SHETLANDS OF ALL COLOURS, NOT JUST BLACKS!

RECENTLY WE HAVE CHANGED OUR BREEDING POLICY, TO FOLLOW PRIMARILY KERSWELL BLOODLINES, BUT WITH TAWNA AND FAIRY TO PROVIDE OUT CROSSES.

WE ARE CAREFUL TO SELECT PONIES WITH FANTASTIC PEDIGREES AND BY USING CAREFULLY SELECTED STALLIONS ON OUR MARES WE HOPE TO PRODUCE FANTASTIC LITTLE PONIES OF GOOD CONFORMATION, MOVEMENT, LOOKS AND TEMPERAMENT!
WE ARE TRYING TO BREED BACK TO LINES THAT INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING STALLIONS -
NEWPARK CHIEFTAIN,
RON OF NORTHWELLS,
TYROS STORM OF LAMBRIDGE,
VORDEN PICEA
AND ALSO PONIES THAT HAVE THE FAIRY/SOUTHPARK BLOODLINES.
 
WE CURRENTLY HAVE 6 MARES AND FILLIES and 2 LICENSED STALLIONS AT HOME AND TWO ON PERMINANT LOAN.
 
ALL OUR STALLIONS AND COLTS ARE SIRE AND DAM PARENTAGE CHECKED WITH THE SHETLAND PONY STUD BOOK SOCIETY.
THIS MEANS BOTH THEIR PARENTS DNA IS RECORDED WITH SPSBS.
 
BEFORE WE LET OUR FOALS GO TO NEW HOMES  WE MAKE SURE THEY ARE ALL EATING HARD FOOD, MICROCHIPED, WORMED, REGISTERED AND PASSPORTED WITH THE SHETLAND PONY STUD BOOK SOCIETY. WE GET THEM WALKING OUT, AND SEEING TRAFFIC AND MAKE SURE THE BLACKSMITH HAS TRIMMED THEIR FEET. WE WANT OUR BABIES TO HAVE THE BEST START, SO WE ARE HAPPY TO DO THIS, AND INCLUDE IT IN THE COST. ALL FOALS ALSO COME WITH A PRINTED PEDIGREE.
 
WE LIKE TO SHOW OUR PONIES, IF THEIR TEMPERAMENT PERMITS IT, AND LIKE TO GET OUR FOALS OUT TO ONE OR TWO SHOWS IN THEIR FIRST YEAR WITH THEIR MUM FOR SUPPORT.  AS WE THINK IT GIVES THEM CONFIDENCE WHEN TRAVELING IN A TRAILER OR HORSE BOX. IT ALSO MEANS THEY GET OUT AND SEE THINGS SO THEY ARE NOT SO EASILY ALARMED AT SHOWS. THIS ENSURES HAPPY PONIES AT FUTURE SHOWS.



VISITORS ARE MOST WELCOME, BUT ONLY BY APPOINTMENT.

ALL OUR PONIES ARE MICROCHIPPED, SHETLAND PONY STUD BOOK SOCIETY REGISTERED AND PASSPORTED.
 
WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DNA RECORDING ALL OUR MARES.
                                                 
ALL OUR STALLIONS AND MARES HAVE PEDIGREES
TRACED BACK 124 YEARS
TO THE FIRST STUD BOOK dated 1891!
 
SOME HAVE PEDIGREES WE HAVE TRACED BACK EVEN FURTHER
TO 1864!
THATS AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF
CAREFULL SELECTIVE BREEDING!
 
 
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS VIEWED THIS SITE.

 
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU
AGAIN SOON!
