Welcome to Brownbread Highland Pony Centre
Dinty & Tony started the stud in the late 60's near Heathfield, E Sussex with the mares, "Kelpie of Skye" & "Duncrievie", dam of the stallion, "Seamus Mor of New Calgary".
Two stallions joined us from the New Calgary Stud, "Rhum Bloodstone"and his son, "Trodival of New Calgary". In 1972 we moved to our present farm where the herd of chocolate ponies rapidly expanded and the Brownbread prefix appeared in all the major shows.
The stallion, "Claymore Tommy" joined the stud bringing outcross blood with the popular chocolate colour and flaxen mane & tail. The stud is also well known for producing partbreds of quality & substance that can be seen participating in all disciplines.

Mid summer; the hay has been cut and taken in. The herd is moved in to the harvested field to enjoy the fresh young shoots popping up They are always in full view here from our house.
Most of the fields on the farm are hedged and many, like this one also have mature woods surrounding them. Also most fields, like this one, have a small copse and springs where the herd can get shade from the sun and fresh running water.
