Timber is a lovely Section D bay gelding. He is absolutely Cracking. We bought him in Leominster sales not knowing anything about the Penstrumbly stud and we are so pleased we bought him. He is a real advert for Welsh cobs and has the kindest nature. A real sweet heart, we absolutely adore him. Some of his results in 2010 include champion at Wales and Borders, Silver medal winner Gower show, where he also won the ridden D. Champion Inhand M&M at NPS summer champs, 1st pairs in SWPA evening performance. In 2011 he has had 2 ridden Welsh Championships winning 2 welsh pony & cob medals.
He will be out showing this year and just basically having fun!
We bought my mum a beautiful grey filly from Diana at the Eastlands stud. Firstly I’d like to say thank you to Diana for letting this happen and secondly for such a gorgeous Mare. She has a lovely temperament and is a fine example of a connemara.
Dun Anna has been broken and we are bringing her on slowly. She enjoyed her first days hunting on New Years Day 2014. We are hoping to get her to a few shows soon for the novice classes.
A chestnut Welsh Cob Mare, Madge is very well bred with good bone and action. We have used her to breed welsh part breds, and she has given us 2 lovely fillies, Honeyacre Miss Molly Malone and Honeyacre Kiss me Kate. Both now been sold.
In 2008 she had a chestnut welsh cob by Nebo Thomas. He is chestnut with four white socks and a blaze!
In 2010 she had a another lovely chestnut colt by Nebo Thomas, an exact look a like to his brother. Maybe a driving pair in the future!
Phoebe is a lovely fell with a really kind nature. She is loving the ridden life but she is giving me a bit of a workout as she tends to be quite lazy! She is fantastic to hack out and has started enjoying the shows. We will be aiming her at the picton qualifiers this year.
Purchased to start breeding performance ponies. Very good bone, loves everyone and enjoys being ridden. Very successful with his mares. Kindest nature. He passed his performance testing as a ridden stallion in 2005 gaining a distinction. Congratulations to Gauntlet who had all very pretty foals and all had good success so far including 2nd in Royal Welsh 2007. Gauntlet has retired from ridden classes is he is far too laid back and no one realises he is a stallion. He is retired to stud where he is proven invaluable.
He is also extremely fertile and seems to get every mare in foal.
Where do we start? Apart from winning numerous County and International shows in-hand including Coloured Champion in the International show in 2010. He has qualified for HOYS 2011, 2012 & 2013 and Royal international 2011 & 2014. He passed his CHAPS grading in September 2008 in-hand and ridden.
Since a foal he has won so many classes and championships against mature ponies, we are so proud of him. He is now one of the most consistent ridden Shetlands on the circuit and we are looking forward to the rest of the season with hi out competing this year. His son Red Indian has been sold and is following in his fathers footsteps showing great potential as a ride and drive.
More importantly, he is the nicest natured stallion you could ever wish to own. He is a joy to have on the yard and he loves his showing.
