The end of the summer season for us as we seem to have picked up a snotty

lovely show with some very nice ponies.

days) .... guess that explains why she hasn't shown any signs of coming

someone staying to "see a foaling" the cameras were on Moon and
Sasha and we missed the whole thing!
|16/03/2010||Dorlen has done it again - another super filly by Arwr - if
they all come out like this one I'll be very happy!
|01/03/2010||Very sad to report that we have lost the very promising
young mare Criccieth Gail with suspected grass sickness.
Really feeling rather numb right now and can't quite believe it.

interesting and informative day.

colic surgery - fingers crossed all seemed to go well and she should be
back with us soon.
|06/11/2009||Passed the wpcs judges assessment and is now on the panel -
really pleased - thank you so much to everyone who said I could do it!
|31/10/2009||WPCS judges assessment - nearly didn't go as Criccieth Gail
is very ill with suspected salmonella - fingers crossed all will be OK!

Margaret Evans. A true old fashioned horse woman of the like we no longer

mares I have ever seen)

colt by Barracks Candyman

Prophet - pics now on foal page
|20/03/2009||Foalcam is now on line.
Dorey is on cam with a pretty full udder. No more wax as yet though...
|16/03/2009||Power cut last night so the cam wasn't even working here and
the burglar alarm went off from about 2am - all fun!
This morning Dorey had waxed .... but by this evening the wax had gone and she has a noticibly smaller udder - phew! Am putting it all down to being disturbed by the burglar alarm last night.
|21/02/2009||Well today feels like the first day of spring!
The ponies we're showing are coating nicely and Dorey has started to bag up and looks on track for a slightly early foal
Arwr is looking well and has been enjoying some play time with the 3 yearling colts. He is a such a star and a complete and utter softy with them all.
We went today to the C|riccieth stud to collect Criccieth Arwr. He has come
for his winter holidays and will cover the Boothsdale mares before returning
home in June 2009. It is an honour to have this little man with us and to
top it all he's like a cuddly teddy bear!
Arwr is currently residing in Cheshire together with all our young stock (HUGE thank you to Liz and Peter Sherlock!) but will return home in about a month when stables and fencing should hopefully be finished!
We dropped Liza (Gemstone Liza) off at her new home. She has been loaned out
to Sarah Pinfield for her daughter Amy to bring out under saddle. We look
forwards to lots of updates on their progress!
|31/08/2008||We went down to Crickhowell for the Hill Ponies Open Day at
the Blaenau stud. Had a lovely time and saw some fantastic ponies. We took
lots of pictures a slide show of which can be seen below.
|03/08/2008||This years showing season has been very bitty due to lack of
stables, ill ponies and ill people! But we are pleased to announce that...
***Planning permission has been granted for the new stable block***
Work will hopefully commence after the August bank holiday weekend and the stables will (fingers crossed) be up in time for weaning!

|25/05/2008||Gemstone Liza has an outing to Lloc medal show where she
wins the barren mare class
Pantymel Buddig foals a lovely bay (to go grey) colt at 11.30pm - so not much sleep for me!
|17/05/2008||Criccieth Melisa foals a stunning colt by Criccieth Arwr. He
is currently pally but will, I think, go grey
|10/05/2008||Builth Spring Sales and Criccieth Reduction - I am over the

of yearling fillies behind the reserve Section A Champion!

|12/04/2008||Clwyd WPCA - Polly 4th in another strong class of yearling
fillies (the winner was champion)
|05/04/2008||Have started to bring Dory (Criccieth Dorlen) in at night as
she's now pretty well bagged up. The camera is also back up and running -
|17/03/2008||First show of the season. Polly (Boothsdale Buddig) was 4th
in a strong class of 15 yearling fillies under Sue Harries (Castlemead) at
It's great to have the season under way and to be getting the chance to catch up with all our pony friends! It does seem very early to be trying to get ponies in show condition though! Bit of a break now though until Clwyd on the 12th April
|15/01/2008||Dion has been sold to a lovely home and goes to join his
father (Cardi) in Yorkshire. I is hoped that he will have a few outings in
hand this year and then come out under saddle in 2009. We wish Julia,
Belinda and the children the best of luck with him and look forwards to
hearing how he gets on.
|01/01/2008||Happy New Year!
Looking forward to this years shows and foals. We only have 2 foals due this year as we left a few of the mares empty due to the house move.
|09/10/2007||Finally broadband is back!
|07/10/2007||Just got back from Hay with two new additions Criccieth
Jacque and Criccieth Jalila - two grey filly foals and both half sisters
|23/09/2007||We are now happily installed at Buarth Mawr. A few teething
problems (such as the lack of internet connection!!!) but other than that
all settling in well!
Twinkle sold to a nice home at Fayre Oaks (despite being in the ring at about 6.30pm on the Sunday!) and is now back in Cheshire. The other BIG news from Fayre Oaks was Lulu's daughter Penboeth Lowri selling for £3,400.
Hedwig has gone to live at Reasheath College and now has the job of teaching students "horse handling"
Oh, and we did manage a show before the move! Liza was third in a very good barren mare class at Anglesey - pictures to be added once home internet fixed!!!
We're hoping to make it to a few foal shows so hopefully news will follow...
|20/07/2007||House sale has exchanged so we are definitely on the move!
I'm going to need to cut back on numbers slightly - please see for sale
page or enquire if there's someone specific you'd like!
|19-20/06/2007||Despite broken down vehicles and copious amounts of mud we
had a lovely time on the rare breeds stand at Cheshire and thoroughly
enjoyed telling everyone about the hill ponies. Those seeking further
information can find suitable links under hill ponies on the links page!
Showing wise Tammy was 4th in the senior broodmare class
|16/06/2007||Not much happening in the way of pony news at the moment -
we have made a very hurried decision to move house so much time has been
taken up with viewings here and (having failed to buy the auction property
we wanted) trying to find somewhere to move to!
|23/05/2007||I nipped to Beeston for a "quick look" on the way
to work - very glad I did as we now have a new addition - my first Revel
pony - Revel Lulu
Pictures will appear when she settles in and fills out a bit!
|19/05/2007||NPS Area XI
Judge - Beryl Edwards (Minsterley)
Criccieth Gail - 3rd 2/3yr old filly/gelding
Trehwfa Sasha - 4th yearling filly/gelding
Sasha will now be turned away for a little while to mature.
Took Sasha and Gail out for their first show of the season under Dennis Price (Afan). Sasha won her class and Gail managed a creditable 2nd despite dropping off a lot of condition on the way there and looking a little like a greyhound!
|05/05/2007||NCPA Open Show - Our first show of the season (and Polaris
Tamarisks first ever outing!)
Despite being just a little bit mind blown by the whole thing Tammy behaved beautifully. Her first run out was virtually non-existent but she just started to get going whilst doing her individual run out.
She ended up a very creditable second in a strong mixed class of broodmares, barrens and geldings
|25/04/2007||Poppy foaled a beautiful filly foal at 10.45pm. She is the
spitting image of her older full brother Boothsdale Brudiwr
We can't believe our luck - 3 healthy foals and all fillies! Only problem is I can't keep all 3 so will have some tough decisions to make!
|18/04/2007||Dory foaled a beautiful filly foal at 9.30pm. She has the
most exquisite head.
|15/04/2007||Twinkle has unfolded nicely and Tammy is struggling to keep
|12/04/2007||Tammy has produced a beautiful filly foal at 1.55am - Boothsdale
|09/04/2007||Tammy is now 8 days overdue and we're all a little short on
sleep! Fingers crossed we should see a foal this week!
|30/03/2007||Foalcam is back! Currently on cam is Tammy
- due 1st April. There may be the odd shot of Dory
though as after last years early arrival I don't quite trust her to last
until her due date!
|10/03/2007||The first two mares (Tammy and Dory) are starting to bag up
and Tammy imparticular looks to be on track to foal before the end of
|01/03/2007||Due to a change of circumstances Criccieth Dusky who we sold
last year came back onto the market and following a chance enquiry from
someone we used to know she is now back in Cheshire. I'm told that her new
owner, Emilia, has changed her name to Snowy and is very excited about her
new pony. We can't wait to hear how they both get on!
|05/01/2007||Now looking forward to the spring shows and foals!!!!!
All the mares are hairy and muddy but looking nice and round!
Another new face! Hinderton Humming Bird has joined us on loan from the
Many thanks to Sue Rothery for this beautiful girl and to Ann Bale-Williams for putting us in touch in the first place!
We have a new face at Boothsdale! Despite my disparaging remarks about miniatures
Sooty has joined the family. He is a real little character!
Back from a weekend at Hay - our first venture to Hay sales! Pleased to say that
both of our ponies sold well to lovely homes.
Dusky has gone to Kirsty Faulkner (and her daughter Olivia) and we are very much looking forward to hearing how she does under saddle! I'm told that she may well be re-christened Strawberry as "she's just scrumptious".
Lego has sold to Mrs Newman from Llantrisant as a potential stallion. We are looking forward to hearing how he gets on.
Just returned from Fayre Oaks - both Tosca and Dambuster sold well both going to
lovely homes. Dambuster went down south as a future lead rein and Tosca is off
It was nice to see Tiverton Pudsey (who we had from a foal to 4yr old). He looked very well and headed off down to Cornwall.
Managed to resist the temptation of a couple of lovely older mares but found the filly foal I've spent all summer looking for! She's called Trehwfa Sasha and is just gorgeous!
NCPA Pony of the Year Show!!!!
Absolutely over the moon - Buster won his championship and went on (in the pouring rain) to take the Brown Turner £100 supreme. Thank you to everyone for their kind comments on him! It's just a shame his next outing is Fayre Oaks!
Had a couple of days down in mid Wales to visit a few studs (Dyfed, Blaenau,
Eppynt (for the open afternoon) and Afan). Saw some really lovely ponies - Thank you to everyone
for their kind hospitality
Eppynt Skyline Looking gorgeous!
Eppynt Verity Jane - dam of Eppynt Vanilla Moon
Midlands WPCA Silver Medal Show. Went down to collect Dion and took Tosca along
for the ride. She was 3rd in an excellent mixed 2/3yo class. Unfortunately I let
her down a bit - it was a huge ring and I just can't run fast enough!
Minsterley - Dinky was second to a colt on only her 3rd outing this year. She
has now been turned away for the winter
Have bought Tosca in to get her ready for Fayre Oaks. Seeing as she was in we
took her to Gredington and were very pleased to be 2nd to a three year old
Royal Welsh!! - Far too hot but had a great time. Everything stayed in and we
brought home 2 rosettes so really can't complain.
There were some really, really lovely ponies entered and Tony Tilley did an excellent job of judging them
Delivered Renie to her fabulous new home. Having had phone calls from all over
the country she's actually ended up just a couple of miles down the road!
We wish Jade the best of luck with her and can't wait to see her under saddle!
News has been on the slow side recently - we seem to be spending an inordinate amount
of time ferrying mares back and to from stud! Which combined with a hectic work
schedule has led to a lack of shows (couldn't even show at Cheshire as I was
stood on a stand!)
Liza produced a gigantic colt foal at 11:55pm. - Boothsdale Legolas (and at the
moment he is all legs, and very long ones at that!)
Photo courtesy of www.esphotography.co.uk
Finally a decent photo! This is Twizzle (Boothsdale Talitha). Please excuse the expression on Dad's face - he was concentrating!
Twizzle wins yearling class at Cholmondley medal show. Still no pictures -
as it was tipping it down!
Also technical difficulties are now solved and the foalcam is back on line!
Sad news - Unfortunately Harry (Crumpwell Hayfa) lost a lovely bay colt
foal this morning.
We are now trying to get the camera sorted in time for Liza foaling!
Foal cam is unfortunately off line until we get a replacement part!
Fingers crossed we get it sorted before anything decides to foal! - So
much for technology!
Still only the one foal! Harry is getting very close, she's very restless
and her udder is getting very tight - hopefully we should see a foal soon!
Foal cam is now online!
Currently the cam is on Harry (Crumpwell Hayfa) she is not due until the 23rd May but she is fairly well bagged up and I don't think she's that far off
You may occasionally get a shot of Liza by mistake if we flick the picture between them. Liza is again due on the 23rd May but is only just starting to bag up.
Took Twizzle for her first outing of the year to NCPA Cheshire. She was a
little star (as always!) and won the section A yearling class under
Gillian Oldham (Hollytree)
There would be pictures but the photographer forgot the camera and by the time we got home she'd had enough of being beautiful for one day!
Mum and Dad called in on Boothsdale Busy Lizzie and Carland Hedwig and are
pleased to report that they're growing nicely and looking very well!
Went to visit Carland Lloyd George (Gemstone Liza's 2005 foal) at his new
home today. I'm pleased to report that he's growing well and is being
utterly spoilt - keep up the good work Annette!
First show of the season - snow, unfit handler's and general disorganisation! But we had a lovely day anyway!
Moon was 5th in the 2 and 3 year old fillies and behaved perfectly with just enough sparkle! Dinky was 5th in the yearling fillies but will now go out for a well earned break as she seemed a little bored with it all!
|17/03/2006||Got a bit of a shock this morning when we went out to feed
and found a foal! Dorlen has produced a lovely colt (a good three weeks
earlier than expected and without much in the way of warning signs!).
Fortunately both mother and baby appear to be doing well - I just wish it
was a bit warmer and we had a little more grass!
Anyway, Snowy is doing well and seems to be very similar to his half sister Dawnus - so we are VERY pleased!
|12/03/2006||Have just returned from a trip to the Shacklebridge stud in
Derbyshire where we went to visit Dyfed Popcorn. He really is a beautiful
stallion and we are really looking forward to the prospect of using him
|04/03/2006||Despite the snow everything is moulting! Dory has started to
'bag up' so would definitely seem to be on track for an early April foal!
|08/02/2006||The nights are finally starting to get lighter and the mares
are starting to look a bit like very woolly hippos! First foal is due on
the 8th April but we hope to have some show news before then!
|24/12/2005||Delivered Boothsdale Busy Lizzie to her new home, Carland
Hedwig has gone with her on loan for the time being. We wish Jill, Phil
and Sally the best of luck with them both!
|15/12/2005||Carland Lloyd George has gone to his new home - he is the
smallest member of his new family by quite a long way and is being
thoroughly spoilt! We wish Annette and Andy the best of luck with him!
|27/11/2005||Not much happening at the moment - save for the mud!
Everything apart from the foals is out and woolly on winter grazing!
|23/10/2005||Today Gemstone Liza and Crumpwell
Hayfa joined us from Anglesey. Hayfa has been added as a surprise
graduation present for me! I fell in love with her when we went to look at
Liza a couple of weeks ago but my budget wouldn't stretch far enough!
|22/10/2005||Lancashire NCPA foal show -
Twizzle (Boothsdale Talitha) had her first outing. She topped a class of
16 section A foals and then won the LR/FR class too!
|02/10/2005||Today we went to Anglesey to visit
Mr Duffy of the Carland Stud. We spent a lovely couple of hours looking at
some beautiful ponies. We have purchased Gemstone Liza and her colt foal
by Criccieth Boy Blue - they will be joining us shortly
|26/09/2005||Back from 3 lovely days down at Fayre Oaks - Pleased to
announce that Criccieth Gail has joined us. There were some lovely ponies
around - I could have easily added a couple of others!
|10/08/2005||Our first visit to Anglesey show -
Boothsdale Dawnus (Dinky) wins a very strong section A foal class - we are
over the moon! Criccieth Dorlen (her dam) was also 4th in the broodmare
class! Thank you to everyone for their kind comments regarding Dinky - we
can't believe how lucky we have been to have her as only our second
