Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Matthew Horace Hayes, 26 March 1902

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/25
Scope and Contents Hayes thanks Ewart for his article on Connemara ponies and agrees with his notion that the breed is no longer pure, having seen examples in Galway that winter. He is reminded that as a boy he had seen a distinct breed of Kerry pony, which has now become extinct. He adds that the Batak or Deli pony is fast losing its distinctiveness due to excessive breeding with Arab ponies.
Dates: 26 March 1902
