RECENT NEWS 2014: Congratulations Janet on obtaining the lovely mare Skye Mist Bizzy Bee. She has gone to the very best home I could wish for and will be loved as much as I have loved her.
NOTE OF INTEREST: The above mare is my very last Dartmoor pony since the Shelanda Stud started in 1980, an era ended.
When Shelanda Dartmoor Pony Stud imported their first breeding stock of Dartmoor Ponies in 1980 from England. A 4 month old foal came out with his dam the foal's name Whitmore Genesis.
This gelding is still alive and well, the oldest Dartmoor Pony in Australia. He will be thirty years old in June this year. His owner was a little four year old girl who fell in love with him and had been his jockey for many years going to Pony Club, Shows and other events until she outgrew him and gave him to her little brother, who rode him helping his father round up cattle on their property. Tammie, the little girl. is now a young woman.
