Isle of Rùm Ponies
The Rum pony holds a unique position on the island. It is a specific breed with historical lineage, a working animal used for bringing culled deer down from the hills around Kinloch. The Rum pony is related to the Western Isles pony, being smaller than the Skye or highland varieties. Thickset, powerful, with long thick forelocks from top of the head to the muzzle, long manes and thick bushy tails. They are a variety of colours – mouse dun, chestnut with silver mane and tail. All have eel-stripe along back and zebra stripes on forelegs – leads some to suggest link with primitive North European breeds.
