During 2018 we have managed to fulfill our long term desire to own/keep heavy horses!
We are both delighted and privileged to announce the arrival of Ernie, a huge 18.3 Hands: 8 year old Clydesdale, a perfect gentleman and officially designated a rare breed as numbers of these traditional working horses have dwindled over the years
Our latest addition is Willow, a pure Shire Horse foal. She is a stunner with a huge personality, a real cuddle monster!. At just12 months old, she already stands at c 15.3 hands
They join Paddy, a vocal & friendly Irish Draught Cross horse. Paddy was imported from Ireland by his previous owner (dealer) and was sadly in a very poor condition when we bought him in December 2016. He is now looking lovely, very majestic and is a real character!
We hope to purchase or adopt at least I further heavy horse in 2018 so fingers crossed!
We further intend to extend our interest in Rare Breeds but the most recent acquisition has been a couple of pet Ryeland sheep, one of the oldest breeds of sheep in the UK & once designated a Rare Breed. The Ryeland is very docile & friendly in nature, heavily wooled giving them a very appealing appearance
