Trillium Gracile Hadrian Augustus Denarius

Percheron Stallion

Hadrian Augustus recently joined the farm after the previous stallion passed away due to colic complications.

Hadrian is of French breeding and was a champion prize winner on the continent. Lord Lunanhill is hoping for great things from him.

Trillium Gracile Claudia Octavia Aurelia

Percheron Mare

Claudian Octavia was bred by the late Lord Lunanhill, and descends from stock bred by the previous holders of the title.

She is slated to be bred to Hadrian Augustus later this year.

Trillium Gracile Heartless Gravity

Highland Pony Mare

It is practically mandatory for a Scottish estate to keep at least one Highland Pony.

Heartless frequently accompanies Lord Lunanhill on hunts in the near-by hills and is a popular mount for visitors.

Trillium Gracile Bold Odyssey

British Spotted x Fell Pony Gelding

Oddy is practically Scottish as he came from a small farm right over the border near Catlowdy.

His sire was a Fell pony and his dam was a British Spotted Pony, and though he looks cute, Oddy has a wicked temper.

Bold Odyssey was a given to Lord Lunanhill as a foal by a great-aunt on his Lordship's thirteenth birthday and has grown into a very temperamental four year old.

Trillium Gracile Eskarina

Chincoteague x Thoroughbred Mare

Our neighbours at Farfrae farm imported a small herd of Chincoteague Ponies around ten years ago, or so; we liked the breed so much that we experimented with crossing a few of the mares with a local Thoroughbred stallion. The foals have been, on the whole, what we hoped.

Eskarina inherited more of her sire's body type, being lighter, leaner, and taller than the standard Chincoteague, though she has all of her dam's colour. She inherited all her sire's fire, though she has a generally sweet disposition.

Trillium Gracile Greebo

Chincoteague x Thoroughbred Gelding

Greebo is a half-sibling to Eskarina, with them sharing the same sire.

He is much more like his Chincoteague dam, being on the small, chunky, and placid side. He is all pony in that he will do anything for food.

Trillium Gracile Cori Celesti

Welsh B Gelding

Cori was young Lord Lunanhill's childhood show pony. The Welsh Pony is a brilliant jumper for his size, and always an elegant mover in the flat classes.

While he looks like he's made of angel feathers, he's a right little sod with a wicked temper. Just the thing for training young riders in resourcefulness and patience.

Trillium Gracile Agi Hammerthief

Welsh C x Irish Draught Gelding

Agi was bought in from a west coast farm near Portpatrick. He has the delightful temperment one would expect from such a cross, and is solid and sturdy to boot.

Trillium Gracile Night Watch

Welsh C x Thoroughbred Gelding

When looking for riding ponies, we tend to look for the heavier Welsh crosses as they usually have a pleasant disposition and a hardy constitution. Night Watch is no exception to this rule.

He's excellent out on hacks and a successful show pony, too. He's small enough not to be too intimidating for novice riders, but big enough to handle most adults.

Trillium Gracile Shoukichi

Miniature Horse Gelding

Shoukichi came all the way from a Miniature Horse stud in Texas and quickly settled in to a life as a spoiled pony on the farm.

He is an absolute brat and the terror of the farm dogs and staff.
