new horse wanted.

Recommended Posts

Went to shire horse show and sale in staffordshire yesterday to look for a potential future logging horse, not many filly foals for sale but plenty of colts, ended up buying a cracking mare in-foal for a 1000 gns got her home today , really pleased its better than buying a new saw ! Still looking for 3- 4 yr old mare thats broken to chains . Guess most of you out there won't know what I'm talking about , but there are a few horse loggers about .:thumbup:

There's someone who breeds and works Dales' in Swayfield I believe, not far from you is it? It's where the mother-in-laws brood mare came from, I can ask her if you like.

yes thanks , consider any-thing, although I have been shire horse society member for 15 years . Like your signature ,we use to keep 300 ewes till 3yrs ago when lost some land, got rid of to concentrate on sucklers and trees.

Have you tried Sue Day in Mossley (Manchester)? She does a fair bit with the horsedrawn barges and I did see her at the APF a few years back

Just spoke to the moter-in-law after this thread popped up again yesterday. Sorry for the delay..

 

Her Dales came from a chap by the name of Claude Goby, of Swayfield. I'm afraid they've left Swayfield for pastures anew though, and we've no knowledge of where.

Totally useless, sorry...

Sorry for the late post , I have just registered today.

 

If you have already bought a shire then thats all good but if not I couldn't recommend a Dales pony highly enough. I have owned and worked one for 8 years now and there is nothing that will faze him.

 

They will cost a fraction of the price to keep than your shire and are alot more versatile hence their name ' The Great Allrounder ' .

Charlie Parker from Yorkshire or the Dales Pony Society would be a good first port of call.

 

Again if breed is not important Jim Johnstone from Auldgirth, Dumfries would be a good bet for an Ardennes or something of that ilk , I'm sure Jim would be up for a haggle!

 

Anyway hope that may be of some help and I hope you find something suitable soon :thumbup1:
