Welcome to the
American Kerry Bog Pony Society website.
AKBPS is a not-for-profit organization, with IRC 501(c)(5) status pending. Formed in November 2004, AKBPS is dedicated to the preservation and growth of the breed through responsible breeding of pure bloodlines
and safeguards the Registry of ponies imported and foaled in North America. AKBPS President Linda Ashar is North American Liaison with The Kerry Bog Pony Co-operative Society Ltd. (formerly the Kerry Bog Pony Society of Ireland).
Another important part of AKBPS' mission is to provide information and educate people about this precious gift of nature, for surely the Kerry Bog Pony deserves its place in history and in our hearts.
Although AKBPS is a new organization, we are pleased to already have several members subscribed both in the U.S. and Ireland.
Please contact us or visit our membership page for information.
The Kerry Ring will be published periodically for all AKBPS members, reporting events, news, stories and other information about the ponies.

EXCITING KBP NEWS!
First Kerry Bog Pony by Semen Shipment/Artificial Insemination born in the breed!
Welcome to RPF Dempsey's Bog Merlin (Dempsey Bog x TAF Kerry's Midsomer Magic), chestnut colt foal born June 18, 2009, to Dick and Diane Ward of Round Prairie Farm, Whitefish, MT.
Shown at right, Dick's photo of
Merlin and his dam. In 2008 Dempsey Bog was successfully collected in Ohio and his sperm shipped to Montana for insemination of Magic. This is a first in the KBP breed. Merlin is hale and hearty and a
testament to the temperament and hardiness of his forebears.
Magic and Merlin are featured on the cover and in an article in Hoofbeat magazine, shown below with permission:
