The Welsh Mountain Pony stud was founded in 1972 with the purchase of 19466 Coed Coch Dwynen from Lt Col E W Williams Wynn.
19466 Coed Coch Dwynen (1966-1995) Sire: COED COCH SALSBRI Dam: COED COCH SAINT ANN by COED COCH PROFFWYD.
Dwynen was very successfully shown in brood mare classes being champion and medal winner in top company. Three of her daughters by different stallions were retained and they and their descendants form the three lines prominent in the herd today. We have maintained the policy of retaining homebred females and buying or leasing a stallion to bring in an outcross. However with the birth and retention of PANTYCOED KINGFISHER 46013 we are now able to consolidate the line to DWYNEN who was a typical example of the best of Coed Coch.
