Beltane Stud is a small rattery located in the West Midlands, England. I am a member of the NFRS and a registered breeder. I have kept rats since 1986 and I started breeding under the name Beltane in 2006. We achieved stud status in 2015 with Beltane Bramley (Russian Blue Agouti Essex) and Beltane Maple (Black Berkshire).
My main aim is to breed healthy, friendly rats but I also breed for show, both these things are important to me. I have bred rats that are both pet and varieties champions. At the moment I am working with a new Marble line which has also given me Black and Russian Blue Berkshire. I also breed for Dumbo.
I attend quite a few shows each year, mostly NFRS shows. Shows are good fun and a great way to meet people who care about rats.
