Connemara Mare Families

These articles were originally written in Swedish for the Swedish Connemara Society magazine, ConnemaraNytt (Connemara News), so the focus is rather Swedish. Hopefully they may still be of interest to other people, and I hope they can be made more international by readers adding their bits and pieces. If you have a picture or some information to add I will be happy to include it. Also let me know if you find any blanks or errors and I will be ever so grateful. You can contact me on Jenny "at" tephra.se . You are welcome to copy these articles if you like but if you publish them elsewhere (the internet, members' magazines), I would be grateful if you include where you found them.

Mare families is a rather arbitrary phrase. The ponies in the last generations may not be very closely related to each other or more related on the sire's side than the dam's but it is nonetheless nice to follow how a line has grown and spread over the world.
