    Horses: The hardy Connemara pony once provided the only means of transporting heavy load-stones, manure and harvested crops about the island. Almost every household kept a pony, generally a mare, as the sale of a foal was an added source of income. Unlike the donkey, the pony is a long-time inhabitant of the island. In 1900 there were 70 ponies and 26 asses kept on Clare Island. In 1925 these numbers had risen to 95 ponies and 69 asses but had dropped again to 46 and 59 respectively by 1960.
