Rarity

There is only one of our lovely Sonny, but Cobs and Friesians are not rare at all!

1/5
Productivity

Sonny is retired, but is our favourite lawn mower here at the farm!

1/5
Superpower: Strength

Cobs are incredibly strong and without horses and ponies we would not have been able to produce food or travel around in the days before we had cars and tractors!

5/5
Breed History

Sonny is a cross breed of a Welsh Cob and a Friesian. Welsh cobs date back to the 18th century, and Friesians originate from the Netherlands in the 17th century

Our Purpose

Cobs were often used for pulling small carts and farming equipment before we had cars and tractors! Sonny is now retired and fills his days eating grass and meeting visitors.
