A clean slate, new faces
Recently our lovely Thoroughbreds left Elmdale, the horses have found amazing new places where they will be well taken care of. In the mean time, me and Katherin have been brainstorming on the new horses we want to focus on. However, this wasn't as easy as we thought it would be. After a long time of thinking, talking and calling other breeders we finally found something which suited our wants. Elmdale stud will now be focusing on breeding Dartmoor ponies. We have changed our mindset from lots of different things to one specific goal, breeding. Our Newly bought Dartmoor ponies will be shown in breed shows occasionally and of course we will build a sublime lineage with these ponies.
Here we have one of our first ponies, Elmdale's Descendat, aka Dany. Dany is a very subtle fleabitten grey mare who, like our other ponies, will be shown in breed shows.
Lauren led Dany of the trailer, she was very patient. "Good girl, take it easy. You're almost out" she said to her. Carefully she took some steps backwards, minding where she stood. "Good, you've done this before haven't you? Such great manners in hand" Lauren whispered and led Dany towards the stables. She threw her head up a few times, impressed by the surroundings and new smells. "Katherin, can you look after her for a short time. If everything goes well, let her enjoy the pastures for a bit. It's been a long ride so she has to stretch her legs a bit" Lauren said as Katherin entered the stables. "No problem! I'll keep a close eye on her!" Katherin said. Not long afterwards, Dany was already nibbling on her hay, Katherin put a halter on her and led her to the pasture.
