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 Patrick

Colt foal  17/03/2018

Sire: Kerswell Sprite

Dam: Tawna Tia Maria

Colour:  Dark Bay

FOR SALE

We are extremely pleased with the quality of this - Tia’s first foal. Patrick is a beautifully proportioned little colt, and he holds himself well. He should mature at no more than 31”. He has an exquisite head, and an exceptionally good shoulder and length of neck for a mini. He’s free-moving with a good stride. He undoubtedly has show and stallion potential.

Tia has a good showing record, and this year has already won 4 x 1st & 2 x Championships from four outings, and Patrick has won two Best Foal Rosettes (only two of the four shows catered for foals). The preparation, travelling and showing experience has been a great education for him. Patrick loaded, lead on the halter, and coped with the hustle-bustle in a calm and interested manner. Photos taken early August 2018  


Tawna Stella

Filly foal  25/03/2018

Sire: Tawna Tristan

Dam: Tawna Celeste

Colour:  Chestnut

FOR SALE

Now it’s Stella’s turn to look like a moth-eaten blanket! What a scruffy sight - but the beautiful pony beneath is starting to show through. She has considerable substance for such a little girl, plenty of presence, and such a pretty head. She appears to be a pale creamy chestnut with sooty legs, and looks as if she will have a flaxen mane and tail. We expect her to mature around 30” - 31” which is smaller than we tend to keep in this stud - hence she is for sale.

Stella’s sire (chestnut/white skewbald) has now regretfully been sold as he was related to too many of our mares, so this is his last Tawna filly. Tristan had tremendous movement and produced champions both here and abroad. Stella’s dam (cream dun) has been lightly shown with success.

More photos when she has fully cast her coat. Photos taken early August 2018.


Tawna Ronaldo

Colt foal  27/04/2018

Sire: Tawna Tristan

Dam: Tawna Rosella

Colour:  Strawberry roan and white skewbald

FOR SALE

Ronnie is such an endearing little lad. From an early age he wanted to come over and speak to us, and is friendly and gentle - only to be expected from these parents. He is the very last foal from Tawna Tristan - now sold - and is a full brother to last year’s filly - Rosetta, who we have retained. Although only lightly shown, his sire - Tristan, won several championships in his own right, and has also sired championship winners - both in the UK and abroad. Ronnie’s dam - Rosella, was very successfully shown as a yearling winning 7 x 1st and 1 x 2nd from eight outings in SPSBS affiliated classes.

Ronnie has big, kind, intelligent eyes, and a gorgeous head. Attractively marked with his matching white socks, he is a relatively uncommon colour. To mature about 33”. Photos taken early August 2018.



Ponies For Sale 2018

Tawna Hooray Henry

Colt foal  17/05/2018

Sire: Kerswell Sprite

Dam: Tawna Topsy Turvy

Colour:  Blue roan + socks and star

SOLD

This little chap is an absolute delight - he just makes us smile all the time with his huge personality and his funny antics. He almost seems to have a sense of humour and does things to amuse himself. I have a feeling it would be easy to teach him party tricks and he would enjoy performing them. He is curious, bold, friendly and adorable.

Born black with socks and a few tiny white blobs on his body, he has now roaned-out and the white spots are barely noticeable. He is an extremely smart foal with oodles of presence and style. He is the first foal for Topsy who has been successfully shown including reserve junior champion at Royal Cornwall and 2nd and 3rd at National Shetland show of Wales. Topsy is piebald, and Henry takes after his sire - Kerswell Sprite in his roan colouring. Photos taken early August 2018.


Tawna Angus

Colt foal  19/04/2018

Sire: Tawna Rubus

Dam: Tawna Agnes

Colour:  Skewbald

SOLD

Angus is a striking colt - strong, full of presence and quality, beautiful head, super correct conformation, and to crown it all - now turning a fabulous liver chestnut colour. At just three months old in these photos, it is clear that he is maturing early. Both his parents are champions and we really rate him as having true showing potential, and be a worthy candidate as a future stallion.

Angus has a kind eye and a gentle nature - just like both parents who have super temperaments. Rubus and Agnes have both had multi wins at County and regional level. This is the first time we have bred them together, and we could not be more pleased with the result. He should mature around 33”. Photos taken July 2018
