Cleveland Bay Horses in Scotland



Folds Pearl produced a lovely colt foal for us at 5am on the 7th of May. He is by Barbara Martindale's stallion Brackenbrae Somerled that we bred. We are hoping to call him Brackenbrae Angus after a son of the original Somerled, Lord of the Isles. He had the usual Cleveland Bay trait of his legs being too long for him to get low enough to suckle from his mum. However Pearl allowed us to milk her and he was bottle fed some colostrum. This started him off and he was soon suckling on his own. We let him out to the field in the afternoon and he was soon testing his legs.
