Welsh Cobs are the most magnificent and showiest of the native ponies and this was what attracted the family to the breed in 1978 when we visited our first Llanarth sale.

Over the following few years we bought cobs from Pantanamlwg, Goyallt, Cefncoch and Cascob.

Very soon after we leased Henblas Hudwr Du from Mr Alf Abbot and then bought a half share in the stallion.


One very ordinary mare Dolcorsllwyn Mai produced a filly foal by Henblas Hudwr Du, named Beech Hay Megan.  This filly was only once ever out of the rosettes in her show career.  Beech Hay Megan started a line of cobs that were sought after around the country and the USA.

Beech Hay Megan’s offspring include Beech Hay Dairy Maid, Powysvalley Miss Molly and, now at Clay Farm, Beech Hay Desert Maid seen here.

All of the cobs at Beech Hay stud are bred back to Beech Hay Megan.

We aim to produce good quality, straight moving, cobby animals of the old fashioned type. You will not find exaggerated “Hackney-like”, waspy-wasted animals here. Action is important to us but so is soundness and conformation. Selection for action alone loses the type, conformation and nature for which the Welsh Cob was famous.

 Beech Hay Desert Maid has bred two filly foals and Vicky has now backed her and when time permits hunts her with the Ludlow Hunt.  Beech Hay Desert Maid Min 6
