The Exmoor Pony Herd 428 "FINCHCROFT" Exmoor Ponies

Dunkery Golden Eagle 78/156

Dunkery Golden Eagle is by Dunkery Godwit and out of Dunkery Quail.
Looking for a relative of Dunkery Ptarmigan to run on as a potential stallion I discovered that two visiting mares had been sent to Quartz (H10/3) one produced Ptarmigan and the other Quail. So before he was even born I had my sights set on a colt by the gorgeous Dunkery Quail.
Eagle has been lightly shown with success to date. He was 2nd at Bath and West as a yearling. Dunkery Godwit produced a 1,2,3 result in the yearling class that year with Eagle 3rd to his half siblings Wigeon and Whimbrel. He was 2nd to Wigeon at the Welsh Area in 2010.
He has continued to mature and fill out and on his only outing in 2011 he was Youngstock Champion and Reserve In Hand Champion at Dunster Country Fair.  He was Supreme Champion at the Welsh Area Exmoor Pony Society Show in July 2012. At the Midlands Exmoor Show 2012 he was reserve Champion in the Exmoor Pony of the Year.

He has sired two foals to date. A colt, Tommy Tittlemouse in 2011 and a filly, Finchcroft Mabel in 2013.

In the summer of 2013 he travelled down to Cornwall where he was backed by Jenna Payne. He had his ridden debut hors concours, in the novice ridden class at Exford. This was the first time we had seen him being ridden and what a fabulous job Jenna had done. Since then, he has competed at one ridden show, the NPS 25 Autumn Show where he won the Pure Novice Small Breeds.
