This small stud was established on the island of Unst, in the Shetland Islands in the 1800s. The stud is now based in Dunrossness. My great grandfather had entries in the first stud book of 1891 and, as a result, many of my ponies can be traced back to the first stud books. Gue ponies have been exported all over the world including to as far afield as Australia.
My aim, when I started, was to breed ponies which go back to Gue bloodlines. I am achieving this but, in the process, realise that I must like a particular type of pony as much of my stock goes back to Berry, Kerswell, Mousa, Tawna and Fairy.
I started breeding chestnuts but have diversified and now have a variety of other colours including bay, skewbald and roan. I also bred my first mushroom pony in 2019.
Our ponies get lots of attention and are worked with regularly which, I believe, is evident as they are all friendly and easy to handle. They are wormed frequently and have their hooves trimmed on a regular basis.
Before acquiring my own stallions I was fortunate to be able to use stallions from some of the best Shetland Pony Studs in Shetland and for this I am very grateful.
We hope you like them as much as we do.
