On our third trip to the UK, we bought two fillies from the last foal crop of Twyford Sprig, who had died the previous year. We had bought a Sprig daughter and his only son the previous year, were very pleased with them, and knew this would be our last chance to add more Sprig to our program. As it turned out, Dr. Wynne had a full sister of the colt we imported, *Ceulan Lwcus LOM/AOE/OD, which gave us another pony from our two favorite ponies at Ceulan-- Sprig and Lisvane Lotus Blossom

Lydia has completed all the halter points for her individual LOM and some of her performance. Her ridden career has been temporarily suspended, due to no reliable access to a smaller rider to work and show her. Our granddaughter, Haley, began learning to ride on her, before we brought one of our Lwcus daughters back from training to be her show pony. Lydia was trained to drive as a youngster, so our plan is to give her a "tune-up" and concentrate on getting the rest of her performance points as soon as possible.



Lydia has only been bred to *Wharley Magic Flute LOM, has produced two lovely palomino fillies and a chestnut colt to date. Her 2008 foal was sold inutero before she was bred. Lydia is scheduled for breeding to our new palomino stallion, *Ceulan Cappuccino in 2012.



SIRE: Winner of Royal Welsh Progeny Group multiple times, including 1994. Sire of numerous Royal Welsh winners, including Ceulan Cariad, 1st Royal Welsh ‘94. Top-producing sire in the UK. Grandsire of Pennual Mark, great grandsire of Springbourne Caraway, two ponies which have topped the UK sire ratings multiple years.

DAM: Produced Ceulan Lucy (x Trefaes Taran), 1st Royal Welsh, 1992; *Ceulan Lwcus (x Twyford Sprig), multiple winner of Grand & Supreme Welsh Championships, under UK and USA judges. Winner of the Produce of Dam class, ‘96 Sierra Gold Classic & ‘97 WWNat’l.. Lisvane Lotus Blossom LOM is the first pony, not in residence in the USA, to receive an LOM from the WPCSA. Her only three produce in the USA, *Ceulan Lorelei, *Ceulan Lwcus and *Ceulan Lydia provided the points needed to earn a Dam LOM for her in 2002.

Lydia has been left open since 2008. We had planned to send her out for a "tune-up" and then return her to the show ring to finish the performance points she needs for her individual LOM. Our plans were disrupted when we purchased our farm in Oregon at the end of the year and relocated all of our ponies in January 2009. Lydia will be bred to our new palomino stallion, *Ceulan Cappuccino in 2012. The foal may be available after foaling to a Welsh show home. Contact us for more information.
