Remember Lyra?

Remember Thordale Lyra?  She was the last of our homebred foals to leave us in October 2017 to go to her new home at Drumnagair Shetland Ponies in North Aberdeenshire.  This Stud breeds quality standard black registered Shetland ponies.

Yesterday morning, Lyra gave birth to a beautiful colt foal.

(she’s just given birth here in the cold light of the Scottish mainland dawn and still looks like a supermodel!)

Meet Drumnagair Vega Star by Westpark Three Star Out of Thordale Lyra.

Thordale Lyra’s pedigree…..

So some seriously good breedlines there.

He is gorgeous.

Vega is the brightest star in the constellation of Lyra, the fifth-brightest star in the night sky.

Vega is a very fitting name for this chunky well-built little chap.

Both mother and son are doing very well.  This is Lyra’s first foal and she looks like she has taken to motherhood brilliantly.  She is a natural.

I think I may be in ❤️.

What a little sweetie.  Well done Thordale Lyra, welcome to Drumnagair Vega and many congratulations to Drumnagair Shetland Pony Stud.  Vega is a lovely addition to your Stud.

I must tell Vitamin she is a granny!  She will be so proud.

    He is so beautiful! I love the way he is having a good look round at his new world, and those eyes…… !

    Well done Lyra. He’s a beautiful foal, although I think he looks a little bit shellshocked at his arrival in the world!

    I was so sad when Lyra went. I had HUGE dreams of buying her and bringing her home to the states. Obviously I never could raise the money. Love her so much. She is so lovely and will be the best Mum ever. Hope we continue to see pictures of the babe.
