"Toonmals" is a Shetland word meaning "land used for grazing that is adjacent to a croft (cottage)".

My great grandparents were born in the Shetland Isles and I still have many relatives there. I am constantly striving to keep breeding my Shetlands true to the type bred in the Shetland Isles now and in the past with good strong thick bone and wonderful temperament.

"I am so blessed to now own Owlca Phillips Choice 924NZ (Choisya Fairfax (Imp Aust) 305NZ Narrandera Zara 702NZ). 

Phil is only approximately 32” and is the most wonderful natured stallion. 

He has been shown successfully in the past and I hope to get him back in the show ring this year.

My other up and coming stallion is Lael Moondance Magic 1127NZFR. “Incy Wincy” is also very tiny.

I am looking forward to showing him this year.

Toonmals Showtime 1045NZ has been shown very successfully since a yearling, winning for Beth & Harry Prescott-Ballagh several Supremes and many Champions.

 Toonmals Summer Delight 1119NZ is a darling wee filly who has been shown very successfully as a yearling. Looking forward to showing her again this year.
