Our Dartmoor Ponies

 

 

Windwood Buttercup
April 2005 Bay Dartmoor Mare
(MBR Prince Valiant x *Shilstone Rocks Bolero)

 

 

Windwood Buttercup is an April 2005 mare bred by Lucy Austin in Tennessee. Davidson Dales and Dartmoor Ponies purchased Buttercup from Jack de Vroomen in October 2008. Buttercup was in foal by the stallion Jack Daniels when we purchased her from Mr. de Vroomen. Buttercup is a lovely, true to type Dartmoor with lots of substance, wonderful movement and that fabulous "Darty" temperament.

 

 

Tulipkings California Poppy
May 2009 Bay Dartmoor Filly
(Hedgehog Hollows Gracefull Eagle x Windwood Buttercup)

 

 

In the wee hours of the morning on May 2, 2009, Buttercup presented us with a beautiful filly foal, Tulipkings California Poppy (Tulipkings is Jack de Vroomen's prefix, which we agreed to use when registering Buttercup's foal). Poppy is a very correct, athletic, inquisitive, and very friendly little filly. She is demonstrating that perfect "pocket pony" personality Dartmoors are famous for. Poppy will be retained by our farm as a future brood mare and potential carriage driving pair along with her dam.
