This pair of full brothers (purebred grandsons of the infamous Connemara stallion *Gun Smoke) were bred by Beury Stout of West Virginia.
They are now owned by Vanessa Morgan, Foothills Farms/Piedmont Connemaras.

I am so excited to report that Carson and Bates have begun their destined careers! They are with my farrier, and Project Tully comrade, Joel Sherlin, to begin their training as a combined driving pair. They have been with him only a week and he has already put them in harness and bridle and started ground-driving them as a pair. So far, all the reports are good! FF/PC Dec-17

Carson on the left and Bates on the right (above and below)

We picked up these fine fellows at the beginning of October 2017, and brought them home to Athens, TN.

Though they have not started their careers, they loaded and traveled like gentleman, and are setting in to their new surroundings quite well.

Who votes that these two should make a combined driving pair?

They are making new friends every day, while still enjoying the company of one another:-)
