SUITABILITY: We are more than happy to guide and advise anyone who wishes to buy our ponies. It is very important to us that our animals are well suited to their new homes, have equine company, and are cared for properly.

FOALS: Foals can be booked with a non-returnable deposit, and will be available after weaning in the autumn. Before they go to new homes, all our foals will be happily eating hard food before being weaned, halter-broken / well handled, wormed and foot trimmed, and will be familiar with loading in the lorry. They will of course be registered with the Shetland Pony Stud-Book Society, micro-chipped and passported.

COLT FOALS: We recommend that unless a colt foal is intended for breeding purposes, he is castrated here before weaning. At this age, they are caused the least stress, and once gelded they will have a more settled and far better quality of life. Our vets' charges are very reasonable and we can arrange to have this done, at cost, for the purchaser.

DISTANCE BUYING: Due to our location in the far south west of the UK, buyers are not often able to travel to view our ponies. However we can provide a DVD of any particular pony if required - giving a good indication of conformation, movement…and even personality.

TRANSPORT: We are able to recommend a number of tried and trusted professional equine transporters if required, and for delivery abroad they will take care of all the required paperwork. Wherever possible we will try to co-ordinate travel arrangements of our ponies for different purchasers to save on transport costs.

Kerswell Nutcracker

Stallion  11/04/2001

Sire: Vorden Picea

Dam: Nutmeg of Glebefarm

Colour:  Dun and white skewbald

SOLD Licensed stallion AM1691/S03-060. Height: 32.5”

We have used this super stallion since 2005 and he has produced over 50 foals for us. His quality offspring have proved themselves many times in the show ring with wins and championships. On the home page of this website, the photo with five ponies at a show are all Nutty’s offspring - three of them being youngsters. His progeny have wonderful top-lines with nicely set heads, large, kind eyes and a lot of presence. We have retained several of his daughters, and a lovely colt/potential stallion (see Young page).

Now we find that we do not have enough unrelated mares to warrant keeping Nutty - he deserves to be put to greater use - so we are very regretfully offering him for sale. He is sound, healthy, fertile and easy to catch and handle. He runs with his mares and foals in the summer and the other stallions in the winter.

Tawna Dandini

Colt born 13/04/2019

Sire: Milday Mr Bojangles

Dam: Tawna Dolly Dimple

Colour:  Chestnut

FOR SALE

Dandini is the most endearing little boy. He is extremely friendly, confident and cheeky, and comes marching across the field to say hello. He is Dolly’s first foal, and although she desperately wants to round him up and control him, she really can’t do anything with him because he is so independent!

Dan has good bone and conformation and is such a pretty foal - sweet little head, lovely dark eyes, and attractive colouring. His mane is flaxen like his handsome sire - Mr Bojangles. N.B. Until our ‘Current Stallions’ page is updated, we can email photos of the foals’ sires for anyone interested. Mr Bojangles has only been shown a few times, but has always been in the ribbons including third prize stallion at the prestigious SPSBS Breed show. Dolly is one of three full sisters in our stud, all of whom have had considerable success when shown as youngsters.

Dan has the potential for so many uses - he would make a wonderful pet, a show pony, companion, and he has the intelligence and confidence to become a brilliant activity pony such as agility. He should mature around 32”.  Photos taken July


Tawna Cherokee

Colt born 24/04/2019

Sire: Tawna Rubus

Dam: Tawna Charisma

Colour:  Skewbald

SOLD

Cherokee is definitely an eye-catcher……his expression just says “Look at me - I’m gorgeous!”……and he’s right!

He has bold markings and such a pretty head, and we think he would be a great contender for coloured classes. However there’s more to him than attractive colouring. He is square with a strong compact build, powerful hind-quarters, and straight action.

This lovely colt has excellent credentials: his outstanding sire (Tawna Rubus) is a multi champion and supreme champion in his own right, and has produced many show winners and champions. Charisma is a superb, quality mare from our best female bloodlines. Only very lightly shown, she was Miniature Champion and Reserve Supreme at last year’s SW Summer show.

Cherokee is chestnut and white, but he is a full brother to our licensed mushroom stallion (Tawna Poldark), so he could carry interesting genes. Both his parents have wonderful temperaments, so we expect him to be another gentle, kind-natured boy. Photos taken at about one month old.

Tawna Patrick

Colt born 17/03/2018

Sire: Kerswell Sprite

Dam: Tawna Tia Maria

Colour:  Dark Bay

FOR SALE

Patrick is a smart, quality, little colt. He holds himself well, has good bone, a small but masculine head, a particularly good shoulder and length of neck + loads of hair. He has straight free movement with an athletic long stride. He should mature at no more than 31”. (March 2019 - measured approx 29”). Patrick will be castrated here this Autumn, if not sold beforehand.

Tia (sire: Tawna Rubus) has a good showing record, and last year won 4 x 1st & 2 x Championships from four outings, and has many previous wins at County and regional level. Patrick won two Best Foal Rosettes. The preparation, travelling and showing experience was a great education for him. Patrick coped with the hustle-bustle in a calm and interested manner. After weaning Patrick went to a Shetland show where he was second in a good youngstock class of at least seven ponies (up to 3 years), and was awarded overall reserve reserve champion.  

He is a good natured, well mannered, obedient pony. He can be caught in the field, is light and responsive to lead, will stable on his own and is good to foot trim, tie up, load, bath, blow dry etc.

Kerswell Sprite

Licensed stallion

Reg: AQ1872/S07-037

Born 25/04/2004

Height: 31.5”

Colour:  Blue Roan

SIRE: Vorden Picea

Pgs: Hugo of Longacre

Pgd: Vorden Evening Primrose

DAM: Kerswell Spirit

Mgs: New Park Chieftain

Mgd: Spritely of Berry



Bought as a foal directly from the Kerswell Stud, Sprite was later licensed, and leased out for a few years while we used other stallions. Since returning to Tawna he has consistently produced superb quality foals. They are typically sweet natured, neatly put-together, correct, small and have beautiful heads set on particularly good fronts. Check out our ‘foals’ pages to see his offspring, many of which are having successful show careers.

To date, Sprite has produced 33 progeny. In 2019 he has had five foals, all fillies, but unfortunately one was still born. He has covered five mares for 2020 foals.

Sprite is good to catch, lead, load, foot trim etc. He is quiet and respectful of his mares, and gentle with his foals. He respects electric fencing, and usually runs with the other stallions in the winter, but doesn’t mind his own company. He is fertile and in good health.

It has not been an easy decision to offer him for sale - he has been a highly regarded and reliable asset in our stud for a long time, but with an abundance of other stallions here, it seems like a good time for another stud to benefit from him, and his much-coveted bloodlines.

Shared transport is available this Autumn from our stud in Cornwall: up through England to Scotland, or across southern England to the continent.
