The Stud History

In 1978 the Powys Stud was first established, but we really started when we did register our Powys (NL) prefix. We had been breeding for quite some years under the Dutch Society banner, but we thought that was not the way to do it after all. When we tried to register our chosen prefix Powys, we had to add (NL) to it because there was already a prefix pronounced the same, although written differently and inactive in Wales!

It really took off seriously when we acquired Lacy Sable, here in the Netherlands. We had heard about her before, being a very good brood mare, but nothing came of it until she arrived in this country, when she was bought at the Fayre Oaks Sale by Harold Zoet. At the time she was in foal to Coed Coch Bleddyn, which we liked very much, so of course we bought her. The best thing that ever happened to us! We sold three other mares we had at the time and started all over again! In due time Lacy Sable gave us the grey filly Powys Sian.

When we visited Colin Tibbey’s Lacy Stud later, we were very impressed by Blackhill Picalo, another of the Lacy Stud stallions and decided there and then to have Sable covered by him, if possible. So we took Lacy Sable to Wales and the result in 2000 was the bay colt Powys Shon, now a well known stallion.
During this visit to the Lacy Stud we saw Lacy Fleur and not long after that she too joined us at our Stud. She has Sunwillow, Coed Coch and Crossways bloodlines. The Crossway being an old Friars and Coed Coch mix. Fleur was in foal to Gredington Calon Lan, the result was Powys Jack Flash, a very well known pony by now! (Please see our News page for more details).
For us it all started anew from these two mares, Lacy Sable and Lacy Fleur.
