Here are the sires of our foals, some stallions we have owned, others have been kindly loaned.


Born 2015

Sire: Kerswell Norseman
Dam: Merriville Pretzel

A super boy, bought as a foal, we ran him on and licensed him as a stallion. A grandson of Ron of North Wells, Prince gave us some lovely foals but having retained Tilly and Silvie and being unable to keep too many stallions, he was sold to Holland. He now leads an award winning driving team of six piebald shetlands.

Grateful thanks to Corley Oak Stud for the loan of Bob in 2016. He gave us more lovely foals, not least our cremello, Snowdrop, who we retained. Bob is looking great on this photo, being shown by Ali – she’s amazing at preparing ponies for showing,  not easy getting that wealth of mane so clean!
