    I could address a Pony Hunter Stallion question but not this genre.

    VirginiaBred,

    Perhpas my terminology was too broad and/or I should have suggested we do pony stallions by discipline specifics. What do you think? I would love to hear about up and coming Pony Hunter Stallions, please do share. Also, if others want to share about Dressage Pony Stallions or_____________(fill in the genre). Please do share. You will have to excuse my overgeneralization. . . we Connie folks have it in our brains that ours can "Do It All" (ahem, no bias here )

    Well, many breeders have used our stallion with sport ponies in mind -- hunter ponies too, but that is the lovely versatility of the Welsh!

    We are EAGERLY awaiting the arrival (perhaps this weekend!) of a new Section B Welsh Pony colt from Scotland.

    *Wedderlie Marmaduke is a beautifully bred colt, sired by Moelview Mohawk, a champion in his own right, but also a stellar producer of many champions in the UK. Marmaduke is the first foal of Wedderlie Mariota, Royal of Scotland Champion, and full sister to our *Wedderlie Mardi Gras.

    Marmaduke can be seen at http://www.welshponies.com/marmaduke.htm and the story of his purchase at http://www.welshponies.com/scotland.htm

    We are waiting VERY impatiently for his arrival!!!

    ooooh, Marmaduke is gorgeous! He looks like he will be a fine asset to the Welsh family of ponies here in the US. I'm tickled that he is coming from Scotland as well, a very "native" boy ;-)

    Oh my goodness, what an absolutely lovely set of photos from your trip, http://www.welshponies.com/scotland.htm I can't imagine how you didn't just stay there in the pasture with all those splendid ponies!

    Will you offer him at stud this Spring? What fun!

    Thank you!!!

    I really WANTED to stay in Scotland. I just couldn't convince my husband to move there with me. LOL That makes a slight problem, you know?

    Marmaduke will hit the show ring in 2010 and I plan to use him on two mares as test breedings this spring. He will likely be offered to a few outside mares in 2011, depending on how much I plan on using him myself!!

    I am...it has been an eternity (in horse years) since we bred the mares and then had the little shaggies running on this mountain top and now they are all grown up, useful,pretty headed copies of their Daddy...

    yeah...that's cool

    I've got a new one

    Rise'N'Shine Daydream Believr, 2004 red roan Section B stallion

    He hasn't done much, but I'm going to put him undersaddle in the Spring (my arena is just too slick during the wet months of the year to really do any training). I'll definately be showing him in hand all year next year.

    I do have some preliminary pictures, will get more once he sheds out. I will be cutting that hair before show season too LOL.

    Anyways, I have high hopes for him. I think he will be a good compliment to my Solomon daughters My hope is to show him in Dressage myself, then have him shown in hunters perhaps in 2011. He's about 13.2 hands. I am looking for a special, highly qualified mare to receive one free breeding in 2010 to get some offspring on the ground

    Pedigree is here:

    http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/o...r/Nov19-13.jpg

    We are working on a new website, should be done within a couple of weeks, I haven't bothered to put him on my current on as we're having so many alignment issues with it. Anyways, his stud fee will be an introductory $400. Hoping to just get some offspring on the ground for him. He had a couple foals before I bought him, but unfortunatly, the pictures don't show much If anybody is interested, please PM or email me.

    Of course we'll be standing my Section A at stud again, he is an impressive cross on horse mares. I have a wonderful filly out of an Arab mare by him who will be a yearling, and also showing extensivly in hand in 2010.

    I think most people on the board are familiar with mine, but will post anways. We purchased Penrhyn Sporting Chance so late in the breeding season this year that it made it tough to start out in 2009. Previous to that, everyone basically thought he was either deceased or had fallen off of the face of the earth! We resurrected his name and got him back out in the limelight again. He's currently listed as #10 on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire List and his daughter Misty Blue Paris tied for second over fences at Pony Finals this year. His other daughter, Monroe, was the USEF National Grand Green Pony Hunter Champion for 2008. He also still holds the record for siring the Highest Selling Pony at the Hunter Pony Finals Auction at $75,000 US.

    We hope to get some good photos of him in the spring, as he had a rough start with us this year! Below are a few of his babies.

    The star of the farm, and the sweetheart of the barn is Section D Welsh Cob stallion Goldhills Brandysnap. He's a three-time US National Champion, eight-time Canadian National Champion (not including his National Championships from this year ) and has won many hunter and dressage Championships since he's been up here....along with Western Pleasure, Trail, etc. We just love him and couldn't wish for anything more in a stallion. We did not offer him for breeding in 2008, and only bred him to a select few mares this year - but hope to open his book up for 2010. (photos below)

    And of course, we still have our faithful Section B stallion Alvesta Picasso who sired the Northwest Sporthorse Classic Two Year Old Pony Hunter Breeding Champion and his son looks like he will be winning one National Welsh and three Reserve National Welsh titles this year in Canada.

    He looks super cute in the photos. Can't wait to see photos of him on his new home turf!

    There were two New Forest Sport Ponies approved and licensed with the ISR/Oldenburg Registry this summer. The one we bred named Wasabi who is now owned by Irish Tulip Equestrian Center in MD and Farabovepar who is standing at stud in NY. Both these ponies are also approved and licensed with the New Forest Pony Society of NA. OR if you wanted to breed to their sires...Wicked Courtjester and Forrest Flame are readily available.

    Here is a link to Farabovepar on horse daily

    Might be a bit of a wait for new pictures! He left his home in September, then spent a month waiting to ship, then a month in Canada while dealing with all the quarantine and paperwork for him and the mare he travelled with..... and now a week on the trailer? I'm thinking not going to be very photo ready!!!

    (Though I have no doubt that he got excellent care while in the Canadian quarantine, my past experience says that he's going to arrive rumpled and not looking his best!)

    but two homebred babies hitting the dressage ring under saddle in AZ with their owner Lisa Darling...for baby 3 coming 4 yos I think they are doing wonderful..

    Thanks for the plug and compliments, "T". Rode Merlin this AM and he's coming along like clockwork. He's gone on a few "big boy" trail rides and doing light arena work. Resolute is getting over a respiratory virus so I've just been riding him at a walk around the property. Both boys are doing well. I would take another Dambuster baby in a heartbeat. These two have been so easy to deal with and start. Plans currently are to take Merlin to do his first test (intro) at a schooling show in January. I will likely take Resolute for his first one in March/April. I'll also probably start collecting him in April/May with the idea of doing two test breedings. One to the section C mare I picked up today (yippee) and also to a friend's TB mare. So we'll keep you posted.

    thank you Dawn...I did make them pretty and useful, but LISA has made them spectacular...it's easy to ruin any horse no matter how well bred and cared previously ...

    and she should get all the credit there maybe one day she'll go pro....or something

    but 10years is young for an actual dressage sire I think...and so I guess he fits the "young" if not "up and coming" which I took to mean as showing actively
