See Our Newest Foals

At the Suffolk Horse Society, we are working hard with owners of the Suffolk Horse to encourage breeding in order to increase numbers.

With their hard work, dedication and commitment, we are seeing increasing numbers of foals born each year. In 2019, there were 34 foals in total. From February/March onwards, the first foals start to arrive, and as they do, they will be added to the website.

There are now 26 foals!

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM CHAIRMAN

"After consulting with all members of the Council, the Executive Committee has, reluctantly, decided that it will not be possible to hold the AGM this year.  This is due to Government restrictions on the holding of meetings which have not been relaxed to the extent that we had hoped.

In place of the AGM we shall hold a meeting of the Council via Zoom on Tuesday 14th July at 6.00 pm.  We shall conduct the formal business normally done at the AGM followed by the business which is normally conducted at the meeting immediately following the AGM.  Trustees will also have the opportunity to raise other business at the end of this meeting.

Regrettably, for similar reasons, it has been decided not to hold the Spectacular this year, nor to put on a display of Suffolk horses at Palace House, Newmarket, in August.

Foals! Foals! Foals!

It's our favourite time of the year at the Suffolk Horse Society, with notifications coming in thick and fast about the new foals arriving.

Please check our Facebook page facebook.com/Suffolkhorsesociety for the most recent updates, and our Foal Watch page on the website suffolkhorsesociety.org.uk/horse-business/foal-watch/

On the 1st of May, the total stands at 15 foals on the ground - 9 of which are colts, and 6 are fillies. (The figure on the Foal Page is slightly below this as we wait for permission to announce names)

If you are a breeder, please don't forget to notify us as soon as possible of all foalings, so that we can send you out your registration form.
