Letter to James Cossar Ewart from E. H. Leach, 24 January 1916

Identifier: Coll-14/9/22/15
Scope and Contents

Leach thanks Ewart for the book on the development of the horse. He wonders why mares even after foaling do not get stinted so easily in cold weather as in mild, and why maiden mares do not come into season or get in foal until the end of March or early April and postulates that the cold retards development.

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.

Identifier: Coll-14/9/22/11
Scope and Contents

Crichton-Stuart, who signs himself 'Bute', thanks Ewart for the offer of the pony, but he is sorry that he cannot accept it as he is too busy. His cross-bred Shetlands are going on well and he looks forward to hearing what Ewart's fat-tailed sheep produce in May.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Lord Arthur Cecil, 01 December 1912

Identifier: Coll-14/9/18/81
Scope and Contents

Cecil confirms details of the transport of the cow in calf to his Jersey bull from Southampton to Glasgow. They have nearly succeeded in altering the title of the stud book to the 'National British Pony Stud Book'. He wishes the Highland breeders would submit their entries, as he does not think it wise to have separate publications in England and Scotland.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Sir Claud Alexander, 25 May 1914

Identifier: Coll-14/9/20/8
Scope and Contents

Alexander asks whether Ewart wishes to purchase a Mysore bull from him. He is lame but well-behaved, and Alexander would take £10 to save him from going to the butcher. He reports that his filly was hard to handle but is settling down, while her dam should foal soon although she has not wintered well and looks in poor condition. He complains that his pair of Pallas's cats are not healthy.
