(born 6/30/03) Balmullo's Billy Eliott dark dun gelding (Out of Balmullo's Veronica). Bred by Donna Duckworth, FL; owned by Susan Hearn, MD.

Hello, Vanessa, Yes, (Balmullo's) Billy Elliot is my boy. I adore him. He's easygoing, talented and the friendliest horse I've ever known. He's also quite handsome, in his shaggy big-boned pony way. Mostly we hang at the farm and trail ride with my daughter, but we also do some dressage, event, we've foxhunted a few times (he was great), he's tried cattle herding (loved it), and we did a couple of bombproofing clinics with mounted police (who told me that if he was bigger they'd want him for the force). Last year we did three beginner novice level (unrecognized) events; he won two (Full Moon Farm and Jenny Camp) and was fourth at Waredaca. We're going to Full Moon again next weekend. Cheers, Susan (Nov 2010)

(born 2000) Smokey Charlie (a.k.a. Gary) 14.2h Connemara gelding

Owner: John McDermott (IRE)

Hi Vanessa, Good to hear from you, my pony is Gary, gelding, 14.2 or 148 cm which ever you prefer, jumped very well for the winter, won the winter final before Christmas in one centre and was placed second in another centre in April. To qualify for the final you must have seven double clear rounds. I bought him last August unbroken so i am very happy with him, he is out on grass and enjoying a well earned rest. (8/04)

Doon is about to turn three now. He was the most gorgeous foal I've ever seen - a real smasher as they say in the North of Ireland. I had the pleasure of seeing Doon being shown at Clifden in '99. Susan Ackenbauer 2/02

(born 1996) Kincon Ray [CPBS G2178] Dam: Kincon Caroline [M8883] (Bloomfield Bobby x Minnie Mouse)

The photos below are from a cc at Tullymurray Equestrian Centre Northern Ireland with then owner/rider, Fiona, who wrote, "I am the previous owner of Kincon Ray. I owned him from 2001-2003 and he was stabled in Kircubbin Co Down Northern Ireland. He was a very well natured pony, roughly 14.2h; he would be 10 years old now, but only 5 or 6 when I owned him. When i first set eyes on him he was hiding in the back of a stable and came forward to say 'hell'o and it was a perfect match then and there. He loved cross country and was an exellent showjumper , so good in fact I had to enter the horse classes at my local yard to give him something challanging. He won many working hunter leauges and show jumping competitions. I miss him terribly but in 2003, I'd reached the age of 17 and was too long and old to keep him, so he was sold in March 2003 to a lovely family whom live in Castlewellan Northern Ireland and as far as I know still have him to this day... Ray meant the world to me and now that he's gone to a new home, it's nice to share his beauty with other people who think the same of connemaras as I do".
