Seamus is an impressive and good natured stallion, and he produces quality stock with good conformation and a calm temperament. All of the foals are registered with the Highland Pony Society.
Some of the original Highland ponies originated from the Isle of Rum, where they were used to carry culled stags and hinds off the hill. This native breed is particularly suited to this job since they have strength, hardiness, and a quiet nature.
Nowadays fewer ponies are used on the hill since other more efficient mechanical means have been developed.
The Highland pony breed is excellent for showing, driving, riding and trekking.
