Welcome to news of Achnacarry Stud 2021. 30th January.
Well........unfortunately Covid is still here with us all and life is very different from two years ago. However in 2020 we had three foals born,....a filly and two colts. I can now report that the two Colt foals have found new homes. Magnus left us today for his new home in Kent with Julie Latham who had a Highland pony years ago . Magnus is a present from her son and daughter in law. They run a carriage business hiring out horses for weddings and funerals. They intend to keep Magnus entire and I look forward to regular updates from them on his progress.
Captain Sir Tom has also found a new home with Kirstin Tigg in South Wales. She already has a Highland Pony bred by Ellie Douglas of Kirkcarrion Stud and Tom is a welcome addition to keep her niece amused.. He will leave sometime in February.
Sergeant Major has also found a new loving home near Skipton in Yorkshire with Nicole Armstrong and once again yet another new owner in love with Highland Ponies.
Lastly Siusaidh left here in the early part of January for her new home with Sandra Mackenzie on the Island of Lewis. Siusaidh has done me very well having bred some beautiful foals. Jamie..is in Germany with Katrin Magel as her stud stallion and produced a beautiful filly foal for her in 2020. Jura a handsome yellow dun gelding is with Susan Hyde in Perthshire. i have two of her daughters.Jasmine and Julie so it made sense to let her go and give pleasure to someone else and I wish Sandra all the best with her.
