Scope and Contents Peacock thanks Lord Selbourne for his interest in the breeding experiments with Dartmoor ponies and old Devon packhorses. He is preparing a memorandum of their current work and plans for the future which he will send to Selbourne and also to Ewart, whom Peacock wishes to consult regarding the application of Mendelian principles to the pack horse. He goes on to describe the breeding work in South Devon between a Norfolk-Roadster stallion and mares with packhorse pedigrees.
