Although not Shire horses, I have advertisements for services from my LAITY
ancestors who bred stallions. One is from 1877, and the other 1886. Here's
a portion of one ad.
To Travel This Season (1886) in West Cornwall "Ambassador", property of Mr.
T.R. Laity, Chyrase Farm, St. Hilary.
Ambassador is a beautiful bright bay, now rising 2 years old, standing 16
hands 1 inch high, with black points, 4 good legs and feet, with immense
muscular back and loins, and he has grand knee action. He was bred by Mr.
Thomas Jasper Polgray, Alternum, Launceston. Ambassador won a prize at
Liskeard Local Show, when a yearling colt. Ambassador will serve a limited
number of mares at £1 10s. each, and 5s. the groom. The groom's fees to be
paid the first time of serving, and the remainder on or before the 24th of
June. After a mare has been tried to this horse, and should the owner omit
trying her again, and try her to any other horse, the full money becomes
I still have LAITY family on this farm, but they are not breding horses.
