Welcome to TawnyDun Stud
Penny Makinson runs the TawnyDun Stud as a rare Connemara Pony Stud – it is possibly the only stud in England and Ireland not breeding with grey Connemara ponies, but using bay & dun (buckskin) ponies so that the foals will not carry the dominant grey gene.

If you would like to know more about any of our horses or services, please feel free to contact us directly.
PLEASE NOTE :
Although the colour used is ‘dun’ for connemara ponies in Ireland, they are actually, genetically speaking, buckskin – a dilute of the agouti gene with the creme gene.
