Welcome to


Furunäs Stuteri


Unfortunately, none of the mares we covered last summer got pregnant. We have now put them on a diet, will do bacteria tests this spring and then give it another try.

We will get back with an update once we have finalized the plans for the year.


Established in 1965

It's more than 50 years ago since the first Shetland pony was born at Furunäs stud.

In 1964, my parents imported our founding mare Harviestoun Priscilla from England and she had been covered by the stallion Royal Sovereign that summer. The year after, she gave birth to our first foal and I, at the age of 3.5 years, had the honour of deciding the name for the filly. The choice was obvious: Pippilotta!

In 1966, Priscilla had the colt Furunäs Pericles (by Lilleman RS 11) and the following year the colt Furunäs Pinocchio (also by Lilleman RS 11) was born, and later on he became our first licensed stallion.

Since then, more than 260 Shetland ponies have been born at Furunäs, among which:

8 Licensed stallions, of which 2 are Elite licensed
37 Diploma mares
26 Elite mares
26 Swedish Show Champions (SUCH), of which 3 stallions and 23 mares
5 Super-SUCH, of which 2 stallions and 3 mares

2 Super-Elite mares


It's with a lot of pride we look back at the years gone by and with much humbleness we look forward to continuing to nurish and maintain these fantastic blood lines.
