Connemaras from natural rearing in Ireland
We offer our horses species-appropriate attitude in the herd association. This makes you extremely socially reliable and very tread-proof.
Our pastures are glyphosate free, most pastures are not duedened at all (even with Guelle) so we have a high proportion of wild crabs. We fuettern mineral fabrics too. We also make our own hay for the winter zufuetterung and the horses that have been put up. During the rearing, the horses run in herds with their peers on huge pastures.
They are wormed regularly and receive 3 tetanus in 3 years.
Our foals are born on the pasture, the stallion is also there.
They are extremely tread-proof because they grow up on our hilly pastures. They have excellent herd social behavior and well-trained lungs and heart.
All our kittens run all the time on the pastures, the mild Irish climate and our country capacits allow that. Of all, this is not efficient pasture economy - but we want to get healthy and happy ponies. We sell our ponies rather a little more expensive us create you for a horse paradise...
Your life with us looks like this:
At the end of the year we put the foals down, make them half-fed, load them, put them up, fuettern them Muesli and clean. You will get to know Eclectic Zaeune, live dogs and farm.
After that, you go back to the pasture all the time until you ride.
Ponies we usually only ride as 4 years old, but the hybrids already as 3 years old. They are then longed, long at the double longe, unausbled by the halter longed and then and on the road and on the field (by cow and horse herds). Not on the pitch. Only for filming - because the place bores them and they only become driven and lacklustre. Our ponies should have fun on the horseanded and the partnership with the rider.
After a 9 month break you come back to the stable as a 4-year-old. You go first tournaments/ hunts for 4 months and then pause again on our big pastures.
As a 5-year-old, the seriousness of life then fades. However, you still get a 4-month break in the herd association.
Our horses therefore have a great character and are very sure of tread- due to the rearing on our natural pastures.
The horses are all regularly wormed. They are also tetanus vaccinated.
We have about 20 Connemara and Connemara Mischling foals for sale every year. Also Jaehrlinge and Two and Three Jaehrige.
