Bred by Dr. Wynne Davies and sired by one of the top-producing stallions in the UK. Sprig sired the winning Progeny Group at the Royal Welsh several times and numerous Royal Welsh and other UK winners in his 29 years. His dam produced twice Royal Welsh winner Ceulan Lucy. His dam, Lotus Blossom, was the first pony not in residence in the USA to be awarded an LOM from the WPCSA, for the show ring accomplishments of her only three produce in the USA, Ceulan Lwcus LOM/AOE/OD, Lorelei LOM, and Lydia.

At age two and a virtual replica of his illustrious sire, “Luke” won multiple Grand and Supreme Welsh Championships under both UK and American judges. With less than 50 days of training, he placed 2nd or 3rd in all English and Western Pleasure classes at the Western Welsh Nationals and Sierra Gold Classic in 1996, and won the WPCSA Western Welsh National Division Championship in A/B English Pleasure ATR the following year — proving he’s not just a pretty face!

Lwcus retired from showing after three in order to fulfill his breeding commitments. At age seven, after a four year absence from the show ring, he made one appearance in 2001 at a double Gold-rated show and was judged Grand Champion Section A under both judges.

As his get have matured and shown on the Welsh circuit, Lwcus gained recognition as a Sire that produces Type and Trainability.

His WPCSA Sire Rating is as follows:

#1 Overall Welsh Sire, All Sections, 2008
#2 Overall Welsh Sire, 2011, 2012
#1 Section A Sire - 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013
#2 Section A Sire - 2006
#4 Section A Sire - 2004, 2010

By the middle of the 2011 show season, the points earned by Lwcus get surpassed the leading Section A stallion. He is now ranked #1 Section A Sire in purebred and overall lifetime sire points. His purebred get points have also taken him to the #2 ranking for all Sections, taking second place behind the legendary Section B stallion, Sleight of Hand.


In 2007, his daughter Gaslight Chwyrlwynt LOM/AOE/OD honored him by being awarded an Individual Legion of Merit and an Individual Award of Excellence from the WPCSA for her achievements in the show ring, and in 2008, she completed all the points necessary for an OD, making her the first pony or cob to earn an Individual Order of the Dragon. "Wendy" was the first foal he produced and the first "leg" for the Sire LOM that he completed in 2008, the major contributor of points for the Sire AOE that he received in the same year. "Wendy" retired from showing after completing her OD, but his other sons and daughters continued to provide progeny points that earned him his first Sire OD in 2011. "Wendy" and Larken Promise Kept LOM/AOE had gven him 2 "legs" for another Sire OD. In 2013, Quail Hollow Cormac LOM/AOE completed the 3rd and final "leg" for another Sire OD. At the 2014 AGM, Lwcus was awarded his 2nd Sire OD. At this time, he is only the 2nd Welsh sire of any section to have multiple Sire ODs.
In addition to Gaslight Chwyrlwynt LOM/AOE/OD, ponies that have contributed significantly to his sire ratings and the necessary "legs" for his Sire LOM are as follows:
Gaslight Blossom - #2 "leg" completed
