Loch Carron

The ideal gift for animal lovers!

Did You Know?

All the female Shire horses bred at Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre are named after Scottish Lochs.

Alistair is frequently heard saying that Carron is his ‘favourite’, probably because of the similarity to her father who he loved so much.

Carron is our most successful brood mare producing top quality foals at Cotebrook every year. Doesn’t she look well for it!

Carrons foal born in May 2014 is Cotebrook Loch Anna. Twice Supreme National Champion Anna is a stunning black mare who is having a superb show career being virtually unbeaten in the showring for the last 4 years. Alistair thinks that she is probably the finest Shire Horse living today and certainly the best horse ever bred at Cotebrook.

Carron was featured on ITV’s programme Amazing Animal Births giving birth to Cotebrook Sgurr Alasdair.

Carron’s filly born in May 2016 is Cotebrook Loch Loyal.

She had another filly foal, named My Girl, on 7th August 2020 and was the last mare at Cotebrook to give birth in 2020.
