Welsh Section C Stallion TOM JONES On His Way To Australia
Boutique Western Australian Stud LONDON PARK, breeders of Welsh Ponies of Cob Type have just announced the purchase of a new Welsh Section C Stallion.
Owner Catherine Anderson’s dream of buying a Section C Stallion took her across the world to Wales in the United Kingdom and with the help of a good friend Dot Wales, her dream was realised.
Purchased from John Welsh of Newgap Stud in Lancashire (UK), NewgapTom Jones is from the bloodlines Sire Parvadean Geraint out of the Dam Northleach Delilah.
As a youngster Tom Jones has already been successfully shown inhand in the UK, where he is a medal winner. As a yearling he placed 1st, champion and medal winner at Maelor, 1st, champion and medal winner at Lancashire WP & CA, and as a 2year old 1st,champion medal winner at Ceredigion.
Already a sire he has a black filly in the UK, which was sold by Newgap Stud. They have now managed to buy back the filly after the sale of Tom Jones to Australia.
Welsh ponies and cobs are known for their good temperament, hardiness, and free moving gait.
The Welsh Pony of Cob Type - Section C can’t exceed 13.2 hands in height, and are known for their strength, hardiness and gentle nature. The Section C is an attractive horse to look with a strong, thick arched neck, muscular hindquarters, powerful shoulders and strong legs with moderate feathering.
Its good temperament makes it an ideal riding pony, driving pony, trail riding, and hunter that can also jump well. The breed is strong enough to carry lightweight adults and also children. Tom Jones stands at 13.2hh.
Tom Jones will spend the next three weeks in quarantine in Wales before he makes the twenty hour flight to Sydney, Australia. Once in Australia he will again go into quarantine for another three weeks. He is due to arrive in Perth in early April.
Owner Catherine Anderson knows firsthand what Tom Jones is due to encounter on his long flight to Australia, as accompanying horses on air flights was a former job for her.
“We are looking forward to introducing his bloodlines into Australia, showing him in hand and undersaddle and seeing his foals in years to come” said Catherine. The purchase is made even more special by the fact that Tom Jones was purchased with money left to Catherine by her late grandmother, who shared Catherine’s passion for ponies.
