At Barfield Smallholding we breed a few Appaloosa and Coloured foals each year from our Leopard Spot Appaloosa Stallion Tyersal El Dancing Bear and Southdown rare breed sheep from our small flock of rams and ewes. Both horses and sheep are for sale once weaned. In addition to the horses and sheep, we keep rare breed Chickens and Ducks and Honey Bees.

It should be noted at this point and at the time of writing this (July 17), that we are considering selling our Stallion (Bear) and his Mares, so, if you are interested, please give us a ring.
BEAR, (his stable name) is a truly stunning 6-year old Leopard Spot Appaloosa Stallion (born 05/06/2011). He is exceptionally well bred, by Tyersal El-Cid, Tyersal Wolf Dancer and most importantly Dances with Wolves.
He really is a stunning boy and has already proved himself with the birth of Dancer and Mojito in 2014 and has continued to produce some stunning foals. He’s a true stallion with his impressive looks and laid back nature. He moves really well and is clean lined.
He’s a registered, full bred Appaloosa, micro-chipped and wormed.
CURRENT & PAST HORSES,
Our history of breeding and selling horses has been from a high of 50+ horses/foals to a current stock of six foals/yearlings. We gave up selling riding horses some years ago but may still sell some of our current mares. Please keep an eye on our web site if you are interested.
During our breeding highs, we bred coloured horses from Lostock King of the Hill, a homozygous CHAPS UK graded sports horse stallion and from his progeny GUCCI also homozygous. We also bred from our former Stallion Puzzles Star-Struck, a 17hh coloured sports horse stallion. We now just breed from Bear.
At the time of writing this, we have a selection of horses for sale across an age range of 3-year-olds to 3-month-olds. We will be posting each individual horse on our horses for sale page. So, please go to that page for details.
RARE BREED CHICKENS, DUCKS AND BEES
In addition to our horses and sheep, we also keep and breed rare-breed Chickens and Call-Ducks. They are generally an attraction for both young and older guests especially at feeding and egg collecting time.
And in March 17 we took delivery of our first Bee nucleus’s having teamed up with our neighbours Nick, John and Mark to become Apiarists (Beekeepers). We’re doing our bit for the worrying fall in the worlds Bee population and at the same time producing local honey, candles and other Beeswax products. The hives (as at July 17) are now full of Bees with the brood box and two supers in place on each. They’ve been very busy, so much so that we’ll soon be extracting honey, a sticky affair we’re told.
So, Eggs, Honey and Candles (for gifts) etc should be available for sale from Carn House.
