In 1993, we made our first trip to the UK. After touring many farms, we were impressed by the Type and disposition of the ponies we saw at the Ceulan Stud in Wales. The mares and foals were, without a doubt, the friendliest we saw. When we commented on this, Dr. Wynnes Davies said, "After all, they are going to be little kiddies's ponies, aren't they?"

We purchased two yearling fillies tht first year. *Ceulan Lorelei and *Ceulan (J) Bounce (actually bred by Dr. Wynne's daughter, Jane) came home to Yorba Linda in the Fall of 2003. Bounce was given basic under saddle training, but very quickly proved herself to be in demand for the foals she could produce, so was put into production before she could establish a personal performance record.

Bounce has produced multiple foals for us, by three different stalllions, most of which have been sold inutero. They have done well in performance and in halter. Her first foal, Gaslight Brigadoon, was highly competative on the Open carriage circuit, before his untimely death. Gaslight Blossom, her first foal by *Ceulan Lwcus LOM/AOE, has competed successfully in harness and completed the first "leg" for Bounce's Dam LOM. Her most notable son, Gaslight Beethoven, provided the second "leg" for her Dam LOM. He was the National Reserve Champion Section A Colt in 2004, and won the title of National Champion Section A Colt in 2005. Gaslight Bethany, her 2008 filly by *Ceulan Lwcus LOM/AOE has shown only once, but was named Reserve Grand Champion Section A by the UK judge at the Western Nationals as a yearling in 2009. Her grandson by Beethoven was 4th nationally in Section A colts for 2006. Bounce's first granddaughter, by Gaslight Crwsadwr, has begun a successful halter career and will be entering performance in 2010.
