Etta was beautiful from Day One - a lovely square, chunky foal with a gorgeous head and great big expressive eyes. She has the stature and carriage of her sire, and the colouring of her dam. Tristan is now at the renowned South Park (Fairy) stud, so we are pleased that this lovely filly carries on his bloodlines in the Tawna stud.
Etta has passed through the gawky yearling stage, and now at 18 months she is filling out nicely. Photo taken Nov 2018.
Sire: Goodworth Bertie Dam: Tawna Celeste
This dun filly was Celeste’s first foal, and sired by the buckskin Goodworth Bertie who we were privileged to have on lease for a few of our mares. Bertie has top Kerswell bloodlines and throws stock with his tiny head and excellent bone.
As a foal Celia took a long time to tame down, but is now often at the front of the queue for treats. Like her mother, she is a slow developer but has a good framework and we look forward to seeing her mature....in her own time! Photo taken Nov 2018.
Tawna Champagne Charlie
Sire: Goodworth Bertie Dam: Tawna Marina
Another of Bertie’s offspring, and our first ever of this colour. Registered as palomino, is he actually cream? I often call him “ghost boy” because he looks quite ethereal on murky winter days! A young neighbour calls him Parsnip because of his colouring!
This lovely colt is as angelic in manner as he is in looks!! Photographed at his first and only show to date where “his workman-like walk” caught the judge’s eye and she awarded him ring champion. We are very excited to see this boy develop and hope to get him to some more shows. Photo taken Nov 2018.
Sire: Kerswell Nutcracker Dam: Tawna Clementine
A full sister to young stallion Clarius (in our stud), and junior stallion - Golden Shred, at the Milday stud in Scotland, this is our last foal by Nutty. We were so pleased when Clementine had a filly because she usually has colts! Clarissa is a big-framed, solid, old-fashioned type. With her build and level-headed nature we feel she will make a wonderful future brood mare. We love her light bay colouring and mealy muzzle. Only shown once to date, she won her foal class.

Sire: Kerswell Sprite Dam: Tawna Fuchsia
After several years waiting, we were chuffed to finally get a blue roan and white skewbald. Pansy hasn’t actually got much white on her body, but we adore the black knees changing to white socks. Pansy is one of the friendliest and pushiest ponies we have - always first to come up in the field! She is very pretty, has a tremendously long stride for a little pony, and has developed into quite a substantial young lady.
Shown once - winning mixed M & M yearling class. Photo taken Oct 2018
Sire: Tawna Tristan Dam: Tawna Twinkle
Sweetness personified - both in looks and character. From the moment she was born we have loved this little girl. Freckles is an absolute darling and is always an angel to prepare and show.
She has done extremely well in the show ring including Junior and overall Miniature Championships, and one Reserve Supreme. Freckles is not a heavily built filly, but she moves very freely and has that special ‘Look at Me’ factor. Photo taken Aug 2018.
