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.

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 gelding. 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”).

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. He would be ideal for children to handle as he is gentle and not spoilt.

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.

Tawna Dandini

Colt born 13/04/2019

Sire: Milday Mr Bojangles

Dam: Tawna Dolly Dimple

Colour:  Chestnut

SOLD

Dandini has been castrated already. He is the most endearing little boy -  extremely friendly, confident and cheeky, and comes marching across the field to say hello.

Dan has good bone and conformation, and is such a handsome foal - sweet head and expression, lovely dark eyes, and attractive colouring. His mane and tail are flaxen like his magnificent 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. Whilst in Scotland he was 3rd prize stallion at the prestigious SPSBS Breed show. This year with us he has consistently done well at County and Regional level, inc Supreme Breed Champ, and Res Champ. 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 September.
