All About Teddy
Our foundation Stallion Teddy, arrived at Moelbanc Stud in 2010, he walked down the ramp, looked around him and said ”I’m here and where is my food!’. He was an absolute gentleman everyday since then.
Teddy came from Melton Mowbray and this is what he got up to while he was there:
Blaston 1st in Welsh class
Blaston M&M Champion
Market Bosworth 3rd under saddle
Five Ways 2nd
East of England 3rd
Derby County 6th
Midland Welsh Pony and Cob 4th
Leicester County 5th
Finalist Ponies UK Millenium Award M&M
In addition he did regular minimus jumping at local shows as well as jumping at home. He also drove and did pony and trap rides for charity at a local steam fair.
In his new life he loved living with his harem and spent hours playing with the colt foals.
He thoroughly enjoyed this role in his latter years.
Sadly Teddy was put to sleep in September 2020 at the grand old age of 26. His legacy will live on through his wonderful daughters who are part of our breeding herd. His offspring are now the foundation of the stud and will carry on his wonderful blood lines for years to come. He had the most amazing temperament and without fail everyone who met him fell in love with him. He is sadly missed by us all at Moelbanc.
Below are a selection of photographs of Teddy, both of his life here at Moelbanc and of his time with his previous owners by kind permission.

All About Midas
Briolen Midas was purchased in October 2016 from the mountains of North Wales. He ran with his new mares here at Moelbanc the following spring.
In August 2017 Midas went to his first show with us and thoroughly enjoyed himself, so he went to a few more!
His show record so far is as follows:
Capel Bangor Show: 2nd Section A Stallion, 2nd Palomino
Tregaron Show: 1st Section A Stallion
Bont Show: 1st Section A Stallion, 1st Palomino
Talybont: 2nd Section A Stallion
Llangeitho: 1st Section A Stallion, 1st Palomino
Ceredigion Welsh Pony & Cob Association: Highest points in local agricultural shows – Section A Stallion
Midas is a strong colour and his passport is now over stamped with The Palomino Society.
He attended the Royal Welsh Show in Llanelwedd in July 2018, where he competed in the Palomino class, which was a really proud moment for the stud.
He has produced some beautiful foals for the stud all of whom have been a real credit to him, inheriting his amazing temperament. We were even prouder to show his son Moelbanc Othelo (now Moelbanc Chalkhill Blue), Teddy’s grandson, at the Centenary of the Royal Welsh Show in 2019, alongside his mother Moelbanc Alw, where he came 4th in his foal class. An ambition realised and a very exciting day for Felicity and her showing team.
His son Gussy (Moelbanc Guess Who) is hoping to follow in his footsteps and become our next Moelbanc Stallion. (please see his description below)
Below are a series of photographs of Briolen Midas in both his summer and winter coats running with his mares. His stunning foals can be viewed in the main gallery. Click on ‘Gallery’ in the menu.

All About Gussy.
Guss is hopefully to become our next stallion at Moelbanc. He will be the first stallion to hold the Moelbanc Prefix. He is not yet licenced, and is currently awaiting overstamping of his passport by the Palomino Society, however we hope to run him with a few of our more experienced mares next year. We are sure he has an exciting future ahead of him.
Please take a look at these wonderful photo’s of him, running with his best gelding friend Star. Photographs by Storm Development Summer 2020.
