The Kerry Bog Pony is a very old Mountain and Moorland breed of pony originating in Ireland, and traditionally used for hauling peat from the bogs, as well as for general work on small holdings. The breed has a reputation for gentle temperament and versatility.
As a mark of respect on hearing of the sudden passing of Teddy Clifford, the committee has cancelled the Show and Sale due to take place this Saturday at The Red Fox Inn.
Teddy fulfilled the role of onsite vet for the Society at our Annual Show and Sale and also our inspections in Kerry every year since the Society first started holding these events.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends at this time.
