So much has changed since I first wrote this website. Then I had all
the following horses which are either literally no more (Pentrefelin
Miranda, Okeden Lady Jazmyn, Akoolah, Kalulu, HT Naasema,
Okeden True Lady, Okeden Meurig, all desperately missed)
or have moved on to other homes and as far as I know are alive
and kicking (well I hope not literally, as in Okeden Tyson, Okeden
Taliesin and Oreo).
So right now we are down to "only" Bailey Pool Alfred (Alfie
our local celebrity and with his own Instagram and Facebook
@alfiethehighland), Okeden Lady June and new addition
Copperfield Jolly Dolly (part-bred Section D and some t'bred
and show pony in there so a lovely Dolly Mixture).
Add to this mix another addition Kallistalodge Rosaleen who is Sarah's but very much part of the herd (and reminds me a lot of my long-departed Llanarth Welsh Dragonfly
Then also in the field and part of our herd family another young Section D (no apologies for loving Welsh Cobs more than anything) Jenister Rosie who is Nandika's but also being ridden on now over the winter weekdays by other riders and Geanna's Corriv, Alfie's best mate! I am so happy Alfie has another boy in the field as I really prefer mixed herds (and Corriv also likes the ladies!)
Arabian Gumush who is Becky's but as ever part of the herd is enjoying life at the livery yard up the road where we also regularly go for events, jumping, le Trek and shows. With her at the same yard, after well over a year in our field and we also love them, are big t'bred Rosie, little Blue and Gulliver the Princess both really great little piebald ponies. And then not forgetting at all Yvonne's little piebald Uno and her big Gus too.
And last but not least in this list is Okeden Country Girl (Charley), sold to Sharon now over maybe 11 years ago but now finally back being ridden with all her horsey family with Neringa which is a perfect match and good news all round!
I also realised what is most enjoyable is the riding with friends old and new, so breeding has taken very much a back seat. However never say never as they say. During the pandemic though and up to now, what keeps all of us who ride more or less sane is being able to get out into the forest and just enjoy ourselves!
