Shire mare, born 2006. We first met Button at our local agricultural fair in 2014, where she formed part of a 4-up hitch, along with Maggie, Annie and Belle. When the owner of these beautiful mares decided to retire in 2021, we were happily humbled to be entrusted with their long-term care!
Button and her well-matched teammate, Belle, love to work and work hard they will! If you think raw-horse-power, these two ladies have it! At Tally-Ho Button will expand her knowledge into the areas of natural horsemanship, and learn a new speed – Slow! Button is a little more shy than Belle, but is quickly getting used to her new hoomans and how much attention they need! We are looking forward to developing our partnership with her as she transitions to becoming a single carriage horse.
The Shire horse is listed on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust list as a species vulnerable to extinction. In 2016 there were fewer than 1,500 registered worldwide.
