Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Frederick Stringer Wrench, 25 February 1902

Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/11
Scope and Contents Wrench explains that at his stud farm they have 15 Connemara pony mares (nine of which are in foal to an Arab and two to a Connemara stallion) and two Erris ponies (in foal to a thoroughbred). This season they plan to mix the pairings and the results of the couplings will be carefully monitored. He believes that the Arab is an exceptional horse, bettered only by the winner at the Paris Exhibition. He adds that Wilfred Blunt's pony that competed against it looked quite plain in comparison.
