By Blair Atholl of Whitefield out of Trowan Mishka

Mercury was purchased by us as a 2 year old from the Trowan Stud and left to mature slowly and has had a novice ridden career finishing 4th in the Picon final. Also shown lightly in hand, including Royal Windsor this year where he as fantastically behaved in a huge mixed class with mares and foals.

Brilliant around the yard where he lives with 2 other mature stallions and 3 mares, good on the lorry and to bath, clip etc. Loves a cuddle and a brush! He has been seen to itch so he is kept covered in a snuggy hood to protect his mane.

This is a heartbreaking sale preferably to a showing home where his fantastic bloodlines, showing potential and rare colour can be utilised.

He is sadly being wasted here and reluctantly we feel that it is in his best interest to sell him.

Stunning 14.2hh highland gelding. 6 years. Registered and papered... 'Swallowfields Hobby'.  This boy has been backed and then turned away to mature, this was the best decision I made, he has come back in significantly larger and looking like a fine example of a highland pony. He is now a few months back into work. Sadly lack of time and too many ponies of our own forces sale.

He is mannerly in the stable, good to brush, tack up, farrier, dentist etc. Good to catch, clip and load.

Ridden in a snaffle, hacks out, not spooky, he leads the green horses out all day long. Riding well in the school but will need some more bringing on for the show ring. Walk trot and canter are all well established now and balanced and steady, he has even started his flying lessons and it's safe to say he has potential for workers.

No health issues or stable vices. Not shod. Based near Chorley Lancashire.

Lovely sweet pony looking for a forever home please!
