Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Lieutenant-Colonel Charles R. Haveley, 13 April 1912

Identifier: Coll-14/9/18/21

Scope and Contents

Haveley describes his recent travels around Devon searching for pack horses and provides details on a pack stallion, although he is convinced that the Board of Agriculture will not buy him for the County. He proposes to gather together the names of men interested in horse breeding to purchase him, and also 10 to 15 of the best old pack mares. He is convinced that in six years time there will be a great demand for pack stallions by the Board of Agriculture and foreign governments. He reports that the Committee decided on the grey Findon shale, although Haveley believes they should have taken the bay. He describes the Celtic pony he sold to Lord Suffolk.
