Brackenfields Shetland Ponies -

OUR HISTORY

WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD HORSES AND PONIES BUT WE WE STARTED SHOWING AND BREEDING THESE WONDERFUL LITTLE CHARACTER FILLED PONIES IN 2007 AND HAVE BEEN BREEDING AND SHOWING THEM NOW FOR 12 YEARS.

OUR FOUNDATION MARE WAS LYTHWOOD GILDER, AN IN FOAL MARE WITH FILLY FOAL AT FOOT. 

WE STARTED OFF WITH ONE, THEN SOON ONE WASN’T ENOUGH, THAT’S WHEN THEY START TO MULTIPLY…….

SHETLANDS ARE SERIOUSLY ADDICTIVE…..!





OUR STALLIONS
 
WE OWN A FEW STALLIONS (mainly because I cant resist certain bloodlines!).

WE SOMETIMES ROTATE AND SHARE OUR STALLIONS WITH FRIENDS AND OTHER BREEDERS, SO OUR BOYS DONT GET FAT DOING NOTHING, THIS WAY THEY CAN SHARE THEIR GENETICS WITH OTHER STUDS AND PRODUCE MANY MORE LOVELY FOALS WITH FANTASTIC PEDIGREES THAN IF THEY WERE JUST USED ON OUR FEW MARES.

IT ALSO MEANS WE DONT HAVE TO SELL THEM AND CAN COME BACK TO USING THEM IN A FEW YEARS WHEN OTHER STUDS MAY BE LOOKING TO CHANGE STALLIONS OR INTRODUCE NEW BLOODLINES.

CURRENTLY WE ARE USING TWO STALLIONS -

BRACKENFIELDS FIREFLY CAST A  SPELL - BAY AND WHITE SKEWBALD

EIGER KRISPIN - HOMOZYGOUS RED AND WHITE SKEWBALD
