Meet one of the Brood Mares of Gaslight Farm......


*Ceulan Lynette
***Four generation pedigree appears at the bottom of the page.***
Yaverland Nero x Ceulan Lucy
2000 Chestnut Section A Mare
Imported from Wales
11-5/8 Hands -- Permanent Measuring Card


“Lynette” was purchased as a weanling in 2000 and left in the UK with Barry Shepard to be shown at the 2001 Royal Welsh and the WPCS Centennial Shows. However, the horrific outbreak of Hoof & Mouth Disease which devastated the UK in 2001 caused all but a few shows to be cancelled. She remained in the UK to show where possible and was exported home to the USA at the end of a successful show season in the UK.

In 2008, Lynette was sent for driving training with Terry MacFarland in Riverside, CA. She was moved up to the new Oregon Farm in the summer of 2009 and given given "time off" from work while we were settling in. Without an indoor arena to work her during the rains, Lynette continued to enjoy life as a pasture pony, for the first time since leaving Wales as a yearling.

In the Spring of 2010, Lynette was sent to Gerald Verkuyl of Goldhills Welsh for a month tune-up, then began her performance show career in harness that year. As David and Lynette have worked together and learned to communicate, their placings continue to improve. Competing against some outstanding exhibitors with their well-seasoned, top-quality ponies was a challenge for the green pair, but when you set personal goals to continually improve, as long as you achieve them, the actual placings become less important.

Also in 2010, Lynette became a leadline pony for our granddaughter, Haley. Although Lynette had never been formally trained under saddle, we felt her mild and easy going temperament would make a better mount for her as she learned to ride than the energetic older pony we had been using the previous year. Lynette accepted the saddle and her little rider with grace and dignity. The pair, with proud grandpa at their side, has become a routine sight at all the Welsh shows. We were anxiously awaiting the 2011 show season, when Haley would be a USEF 4 year old and eligible to ride her in leading rein, but Lynette took the year off from showing to have her first foal, Gaslight Lyle.


After one year off, Lynette is now being "tuned up" and will resume her show career in 2012 with David in harness and Haley under saddle in Leading Rein and Walk classes. Haley rode several of our ponies in the 2011 show season, but she is happy now that she will be back on her favorite pony, and hopefully contributing to the last performance points to complete her individual LOM.
