possibly traces back to an unnamed black colt that was imported into England. The colts sire was a Flemish stallion. The colts dam was a local mare.
Breeder: Mr. Thomas Clarkson, Shotts Hill Mill parish, Carstairs, Langrkshire.
In 1808, Mr Somerville of Lampit farm, (parish Carnwath) bought the mare. She is the dam of "Thompsons Black Horse" which is also known as "Glancer".
