More pony changes

All good this time!

First the stud has been joined by two lovely new mares, first Sarum Columbine, three quarter sister to my much loved Flydon Cadw Cyfrenig as they are both ex Springbourne Camelia (by Springbourne Caregan) and by the father and son Flydon Henri ap Pip (Cadw) and Flydon Caredig (Columbine). Columbine is in foal to Heniarth Quinnell, and was unexpectedly joined on her journey home to me by Browan Prelude by Springbourne Caregan, and I'm delighted to have them both. Lexy has also let me have her home bred Floreat Zeus who covered some of my mares this year, so it will be interesting to see what he throws. He's beatuifully bred by Sunwillow Zermatt ex her Amilas Cassiopeia by Sunwillow Jubilee, so linebred to Sunwillow Quest.

Four more ponies have been sold, first both colt foals together to a lovely lady who house sat for me earlier in the year so got to know them then, and came back for them when she needed a companion for her recently bought TB out of training - although it was intended to be just one! She wanted something she could work with and eventually break for grandchildren to ride and to be driven, and she'd previously worked with ponies I'd bred and sold so knew the stock. The two riddens I've been wanting to sell have also gone together, to a big equestrian livery and training centre where I know they will be very well looked after and carefully ridden.

I'm expecting four or five foals next year, one by Quinnell, possibly one by Penwisg Orator (which will be DNA'd to find out) and the rest by Zeus, all very exciting!

Ponies who have left us

So far this year two have been pts, and four sold.

Age caught up with Penwisg Orator and he started losing weight rapidly for no apparent reason, so after a fun month out with the mares he was pts at home. He had a good time here for his last years. Tragically for me though was F. Creme de Cassis, only 16yo and our favourite pony, who I was hoping to breed some more lovely foals from. She had major, violent colic and it was the only thing to be done for her, a final kindness to stop her suffering. Sadly I have no daughter to carry on her line, she only had two lovely colts now both gelded and successful under saddle.

The four sold were F. Locomotion, who found a wonderful home with his half brother F. Belleboy; the latter is mother's and Monty is daughter's. Good luck to them all. Three As have also been sold, F. Cosmos (4th RWAS this year) has gone to Northern Ireland to be ridden, driven a cover a few mares, and F. Camellia and F. Moonstone went together to the NE Midlands to be ridden ponies.

2015 foals

As I expected - two grey colts! But lovely ones.

The first, by Penwisg Orator ex Flydon Cadw Cyfrenig, is now a month old. Cadw's daughter F. Camellia is sold and successfully competing in LR classes and her 3yo son F. Cosmos is currently being shown and acquitting himself well.

The second, born this week, is by Idyllic Nimrod ex Floreat Prima Donna, first foal from a young mare who was herself 3rd RWAS.

Well, F. Moonstone came up trumps for me and won the Sarum Stud A section of the National High Point Junior Gelding of the Year which was presented to me at the WPCS AGM last w/e. He was also 2nd in the Section A IH Points section of the SCWPCA points competition, so did me proud. Many thanks to Liesl Burt who showed him for me. Moo and his half sister Mille (F. Camellia), both by Flydon Henadur, hve been sold to a lovely showing home with Millie already being placed in LR classes.

Addy's daughter F. Prima Donna awaits her foal by Idyllic Nimrod in late May, and Flydon Cadw Cyfrenig is due to foal to Penwisg Orator in late April. I'm expecting two colts, while hoping they may be fillies after all!

New addition to the stud is Heniarth Sherlock by Blanche Montana ex H. Yippee-aye-yeah, a beautiful chestnut roan colt who will hopefully be my next stallion. In the meantime while he grows up, I still have the veteran Penwisg Orator and will be covering a couple of mares with Lexy's colt F. Zeus by Sunwillow Zermatt ex Amilas Cassiopeia.
