Dulais was bought as a yearling in 1978 at The Llanarth Sales. She was our first Welsh Cob and the start of The Rotherdale Stud. We no longer breed from Dulais, but have retained two daughters--R. Dulais by Gwrthafarn Commander and R. Queen by Derwen Royal Express. Her first foal, by Nebo Magic and born in 1981 , was R. Actor. This colt was successfully shown as a yearling, being Reserve Cob Champion at The South of England Show. He was then sold and eventually landed in the hands of Katie Harris who produced him under saddle and achieved a fourth overall and Best of Breed in the 1986 N.P.S. M. & M. Working Hunter Pony Championships at Malvern.

Another son R. Glyndwr (foaled in 1987) by Gwrthafarn Commander, went on to be an affiliated show jumping pony stallion, spending some time in the yard of Lionel Dunning.

Dulais, herself, was also successfully shown, being a winner both in hand and under saddle.

Princess arrived at Rotherdale as a two year old on a crisp sunny November morning after a trip to Abergavenny Market. The rest as they say is history! This wonderful little mare is as quiet as a mouse at home (often being handled by small children) but turns in to a real Welsh Dragon at shows. Many times a Champion, her two greatest achievements are winning the The Lord Arthur Cecil Broodmare Championships at The N.P.S. Show in 1988 and a Gold Medal as Female Champion at The Royal Welsh in 1993 (a show at which she won four times). When she was being shown her foals always ended the season with several first prizes and many went on to win in later years also. Her most famous daughter is undoubtedly Rotherdale Magic Princess, Supreme Champion at The 2002 World Centenary Show. She has three daughters in Denmark. The most famous of them being Carl Trock's Rotherdale Heiress by Gwrthafarn Commander (see links page Valhalla Stud). In 1985 two of her daughters both won their classes at Lampeter. These were Rotherdale Noble Lady a yearling by Gwrthafarn Commander and Rotherdale Magic Princess a two year old filly by Derwen Royal Express. Lady was subsequently bought at the May sale that year by Helen Williams (Seiont) for 3000 gns. We have two daughters in the stud at present Rotherdale Magic Princess of course and Rotherdale Imperial Maid (by Gwrthafarn Commander) who is the Dam of our junior stallion Rotherdale Rhodri. Princess is also the dam of our youngest stallion Rotherdale Viscount. (see stallion page).

R. Dulais is the second foal, and probably best known daughter of our first foundation mare Gerrig Dulais. She was shown extensively as a youngster and was rarely out of the first three at many of the top shows, including Lampeter, Glanusk, Northleach, The Royal of Engalnd and The Royal Welsh.

Her three greatest acolades are having been Youngstock Champion at The Royal Welsh in 1987 and Female Champion and Reserve Supreme at The Royal of England in 1991, she was also a winner at Glanusk as a yearling. 

R. Dulais has one daughter in Denmark (R. Nerys who was first at The Royal of England in 1997). Her 2002 filly foal R. Vanessa by (R. Rhodri,) became Supreme Champion at The Cotswold Ass. Foal Show. (see news and results page). In 2005 Dulais gave us another black filly (R. Yasmin) by R. Viscount (see stallion page).

Maid is one of my favourite mares, and the image of her Sire. She was shown very lightly as a youngster, being second at The Royal Welsh as a foal and second at Glanusk as a three year old. Her most notable off spring are the full brothers and sisters R. Odette (first at Glanusk as a yearling and as a three year old), R. Rhodri our junior stallion (see stallions at stud list), R. Snow Queen (shown with great success by The Stepol Stud, Lancs) and R. The Tsar, (sold at The October 2004 Builth Sale for 2,800) all being by Laburnum Magic who is by Trevallion Prince Comet out of a Nebo Magic Mare.

This mare is surely one of the best known Welsh Cobs of modern times. She has been accustomed to being in the limelight right from the start when winning as a foal at the Royal Welsh by the side of her equally illustrious dam, who was Female Champion in the same year. (see  photo on home page), a four times winning Royal Welsh mare with a winning filly foal at foot, a filly which has gone on to outstrip even her own mothers record. Rotherdale Magic Princess was unbeaten as a foal and as a two year old, and has rarely been placed lower than second. Princess had an unfortunate start to her breeding career. Uncovered at three, she slipped her foal at five, was barren at six, and lost a lovely full term filly at seven. Finally, at eight years of age, she produced a colt foal by Rotherdale Rhodri --- R.Uncle Joe (see for sale list), and as a nine year old, in 2002, a fabulous filly, R.Viscountess, also by Rhodri. Princess was scanned in foal to Rhodri for 2003, and in June she produced her second filly to Rhodri. Unfortunately this gorgeous black filly had to be put down after an accident in the field left her with a broken leg. Having failed to get Princess in foal after this trauma it was decided to ride her. In September 2003 she made her debut in a novice ridden class at the Autumn Performance Show, where after only three weeks of schooling she finished 7th in a very strong class. Princess was shown twice as a foal, at the Royal Welsh and at the Royal of England, winning both times. She was Youngstock Champion at The Royal of England as a yearling and as a two year old she stood Supreme Filly Champion at Glanusk and Reserve Youngstock Champion at The Royal Welsh. As a three year old she was Youngstock Champion at The Royal of England for the second time ( and also Reserve Female Champion), Youngstock Champion at The Royal Welsh and took Northleach to the cleaners:

            First, Three year old filly class.

            Youngstock Champion.

            Sec D Champion.

            Owner Bred D Champion.

            Supreme Youngstock Champion.

            Supreme In Hand Champion.

            Overall Supreme Show Champion.

She has won as a mare at The Royal Welsh, The Royal of England, Northleach, The N.P.S. and many of the top Agricultural and County Shows in the country.

As Princess seems to like to foal late in the year her showing season has been short of late. In 2002 she stood Champion at The N.P.S. Show and Overall Welsh and Mountain & Moorland Champion at Monmouthshire County Show (where her daughter Viscountess also won her class). Her greatest moment came, of course at The superbly presented "World Centenary Show" celebrating 100 years of The Welsh Pony and Cob Society and held at Builth Wells on The Royal Welsh Showground. It was my birthday during the show, and what better present than to take The Supreme Section D Championship.

In 2005 Princess "flew" at The Royal of England to gain the Section D Supreme Championship for the second time. This year she had her second black colt to R. Rhodri (R.Young Celt).

Queen is one of the last foals out of Gerrig Dulais. She is unshown, mainly due to the presence of her illustrious half sister Rotherdale Magic Princess. As a three year old she was turned out with our senior stallion, Gwrthafarn Commander, and duly covered. We believed her to be in foal, so to save getting the old man in for the winter the pair where left out together. When Queen's foaling dates drew close it was obvious that things were not quite right. We had her tested and were told she was in foal but only just! Queen had obviously returned during the new year, so about ten months late she eventually produced her first foal, (R. Valentino) a black colt, in January 2002. Let that be a lesson to us all!  Scans revealed that Queen was in foal for 2003 at a normal time and she duly produced her second black colt, R. Warrior. In 2004 she gave us a fabulous chestnut roan filly by Comannder (R.Xsara) bearing all the hallmarks of her G.G.Grandsire Hendy Brenin, and in 2005 a beautifull bay colt (R.Yaris) by R. Rhodri.

This lovely young mare is very much like her Grandmother, Tydfil Magic Princess. Sali is set to join the broodmares for 2003. She has been shown just once, at the inaugural Welsh National Foal and Youngstock Show 2002 at Builth Wells, where she gained a second place.
Sali's sire, Cascob Warcry, was bought as a foal in 1996 at a time when we were looking for a second stallion. Two years later Rotherdale Rhodri was born and not wanting to keep three stallions, Warcry was entered for the Builth Sales in October 1999. Unfortunately Warcry was gelded by his new owners, so with the sale in 2001 of her Dam, Sali's breeding is now unrepeatable. Sali's 2003 foal was a black colt (R.Warcry) by Commander, she was empty in 2004 and in 2005 she gave us a bay filly (R.Yvette) by Viscount.

In the summer of 2000 I recieved a phone call from Robina Mills of The Rookery Stud. Robina had decided to disperse her section C ponies so that she could concentrate on her mountain ponies. Most had already been sold and one or two older mares put out to pasture. This left one mare which Robina didn't want to sell but wanted to find a home for. We had admired Lady in the past and were persuaded (quite easily) to take her on permanent loan. Lady has produced two fillies for us, Rotherdale Uptown Girl in 2001 (by Merioneth Storm) now at The Popsters Stud, and in 2002 Rotherdale Vanity Fair (by Parvadean Replay). This filly was purchased by The Peasedown Stud as a foal and is being produced by Justin Davies at Popsters. She as already been judged a show champion, with many more to come I'm sure. Lady's 2005 foal (R.Ysabel), bay filly by Glebedale Reply will be retained by the stud.

This pony was bought at Fayre Oaks as a two year old in 1997 as a "pet" for our daughter Rebecca ( then three years old). She has never been broken but has always allowed small children to do almost anything with her, including donning a saddle and bridle and being "ridden" around the farm.
