Breeding

As one of the rarest breeds of horse in the world, our vision is that one day the Marsh Tacky will no longer be critically endangered. Thanks to many small breeders, enthusiasts and other contributing factors, the future of the breed looks bright. The motto for our breeding program is quality over quantity. In fact we refrained from breeding over the last three years due to space and resources reasons. We plan to ramp up our breeding program over the next few years. Our stallion was born in 2014, sired by Hershey on Mr. DP Lowther’s farm in Ridgeland, SC. We cherry picked our mares for their genetic diversity to be bred with him. We are advocates for swapping amongst fellow Marsh Tacky owners and breeders to further promote genetic diversity and responsible population increase. Our stud, Lowther’s Lucero or “Louie” is available for a negotiable stud fee and we are not all about the money. If you would like to discuss breeding to our stallion or one of our mares please contact us directly, we are open to creative ideas. Thank you for your interest in our stock!

The history, culture and heritage that the Marsh Tacky represents belongs to all of us and it should be celebrated by everyone!
