(Severn Snapdragon x Farnley Amazon by Farnley Chapka)
Purchased at the Farnley sale in July 2008, Tiber comes with a Severn connection. His sire, Severn Snapdragon, was Severn-bred and resided at Farnley for some years as a herd sire before moving on to another farm to sire hunter ponies. Tiber has a lovely disposition and we have been very pleased with his foals.

This pony was interesting to me because he has 3 crosses in his pedigree to *Coed Coch Pansi through Bryntirion Rowan. Coed Coch Pansi was imported by Mrs. Iliff in 1948 and was her favorite mare. Rowan was foaled in Britain before Pansi was imported and he was imported into the Northwest of the US. Pride was put right to work when he arrived at Severn Oaks from Oregon in 2014 and has already sired several prize-winning foals including Severn Filigree pictured below left and Severn Kiev (below right), and Severn Fedora (below middle). Pride is still breeding mares at age 30.

Still a very young guy, Rummy was shown as a yearling and also last year (2015). He was WPCSA 3rd place Jr. Colt last year (2015). He did very well and had two Supreme Championships. Rummy was bred to two old mares in 2015 and both had lovely fillies in 2016. (See Young Ponies Page). As of 2022, Rummy has sired 9 foals, most of which have been shown and he already has all five of his legs for his Sire LOM. Rummy will earn his LOM at the end of the year.

West Wind at 28 years old.
West Wind was an exceptional stallion. He lived his entire life at Severn Oaks, except a short period when he was young. Never broken to ride or drive, he had a lot of great foals over his 30 years. Some are still here at Severn Oaks. His effect on the Welsh Ponies at our farm is huge.
Severn Merrymaker, 1993-2012, had a very positive impact on the ponies here. While he lived, he was an excellent sire. His many foals have gone off to be successful driving and riding ponies. Some, including our current stallion, Severn Bay Rum, remain here to continue his legacy.
