The Champagne Flows Again

The weeks have flown by since I returned to Wales on July 8th, and it is only a few days until I fly back to the States.
The main highlight of the summer has been the Royal Welsh show at the end of July and as usual I held a house party, with full contingent of fellow Welsh pony enthusiast friends from around the globe staying for the week, some of them with ponies...
L to R: Daniel Harvey (Oz) Ingrid Delaitre (France) Ruth Anderson (Oz) Janet Murphy (Oz) Rob Jones (Wales, Dubai and Oz) Jenni Cesnik (Oz) Marit Timmermans (Holland)
 Geert Verbaas (Holland) Me (Wales).
....so it was just as well we all had a successful show and the champagne could come out again.  Our EU friends all achieved top three placings with their ponies (well done Ingrid, Geert and Marit) and although I am not breeding ponies at the moment due to the ride, offspring from the mares I have out on loan did not disgrace themselves.  In particular my Royal Welsh champion pony Cwrtycadno Perlen had two offspring forward who both won their classes, the two year old colt Waxwing Peru becoming reserve youngstock champion. This was exciting not only for me but more significantly for my Australian friends Chris and Janet Murphy, who are exporting him to Australia to join his half brother Pontsteffan Simwnt as a stallion at the Keyi stud.

Pat Larsen has reported to confirm that Lady is doing well, and sent this photograph of them attending Lake County Fair.
Considering this is not long after she had covered around 1250 miles from Trois Rivieres on mainly hay and grass, you have to admit she is looking in good shape - a testament to the Newfoundland pony blood she carries.
