kerry bog pony

The breed almost vanished during the twentieth century, declining to as few as 40 known members. Genetic analysis of these survivors by Weatherbys confirmed unique genetic breed markers, and the breed is now recognized as the Irish "Heritage Pony". A controlled stud book and registry now exist, and numbers have recovered to about 400.

The Kerry Bog Pony is a draft pony breed originating in Ireland, and traditionally used for hauling peat fuel from bogs, as well as for general draught work on small holdings. It is smaller than, and distinct in appearance from, Ireland's more widely known Connemara pony.
