Not all of the poster pics. are shown in this Gallery.   Thirty eight of the original 47 poster pics   are shown here.  You will need to excuse the rather poor photo reproductions here, resolution etc is not what we are used to with modern-day photography, but you will get the feel for this poster which was put together in early August 1983 –  with no opportunity to ascertain captions at the time – with photos selected from the Office Box.  I hope you will get some satisfaction from reading the researched  provisional captions now.

    1. Dear Monsieur Philibert, I was very pleased that you identified Robber Boy 15. (the 2nd photo of this stallion now identified in this Poster). Lib Petch emailed me last year giving all of her identifications and extra info. on the photos, so now we have almost a complete list. I am hopeful that the Breeders Society will take on the publication of a new captioned Poster. I will get in touch in Lib again before I approach the Society. Niamh


  2. #44 Ballydugan Clondagoff (157) stallion

    My grandmother, Mrs. Claire T. Burke, bought him as a yearling.
    He was striking, undaunted and highly intelligent. They had an extraordinary rapport and he won Best Registered Pony Stallion at the 1966 Connemara Pony Show. He exported many foals to the Continent and The States. Brood mares I remember are Heatherbelle, Rusheen, Karna Kitty.
