Two New Foals & Three New Homes :)


, , , , ,

Dylanglen Stud is pleased to announce the arrival of two new foals.  Strickland Park Diamond Lil and Glenormistion Riona are now very proud mothers of two handsome looking pure-bred Connemara colts.

Smokey was first to arrive.  Born 26th November.  It appears that he could be a smokey black colour.  Sire: Celtic Buster O’Hara, Dam: Strickland Park Diamond Lil.  He is a friendly little fellow with loads of character.

These photos of cute little Smokey are just under one week old.

It would be nice if he one doesn’t grey out, we will wait and see…

Our next foal was Rio’s.  Born 1st December.  Sire: Capparis Champagne Charlie, Dam: Glenormiston Riona.  It appears that this one could be born buckskin.  Rio is keeping careful watch over this one, her first foal.

These photos are one day old photos.  He stands tall and proud at only one day old!  Showing off his presence.

Rio is a great natural mother.  We are still thinking of a name for this cutie.

Many thanks to Matt Lawry for taking photos for us yesterday!

Dylanglen Snowy River is also growing rapidly!  Sire: Glenormiston Snowfox, Dam: Dylanglen Miss Millicent.  Future potential plus as a performance/show part-bred.

He has quite a strong and solid build with nice ground covering movement.

He is also quite playful and cheeky!

Three ponies have also found wonderful new homes over the last couple of months.

Dylanglen Red Baron has found the perfect home with Jody and her two girls.  He may be getting spolit rotten though hahahaha!  He has settled in very well and it is great to receive updates of his progress.  He is proving himself as a pony for the whole family.

Jody says “Dylanglen Red Baron officially the bravest boldest pony I have met! The builder tells me he has been visiting the home site to help keep things in order.. Not through a gate I mite add…. Even went up on top of the mound of dirt to meet the moving excavator!” So it sounds like Red Baron has things under control… hahahaha!

Dylanglen Ajax is also settling in well into his new home after a long trip.  We thank Chad & Rachel for the photos and updates!  Ajax has found himself a fellow connemara buddy too.

These photos are the from the day that Ajax arrived.  He is clearly loving the attention!

He survived the trip from Rand to Tweed Heads quite well.  It didn’t take long for him to have a munch on some grass.

Dylanglen Honey Rose went to her new home yesterday in the rain and thunderstorms.  She settled down quite well considering the weather!  It is nice to see her sold to a home in our local area as we will get to see her out and about 🙂

These photos are from Shae-lee shortly after her arrival.  We wish you all the best with this very special girl.

Just thought I would add a bit more foal spam to finish up! ❤

The mares and their foals ❤

Yggdrasil Babette just out of the placings today.

It was great to see that the Connemara Classes were well represented with 5 pure-bred ponies and 2 part-bred ponies.  The judge commented that the Connemara Class was the biggest stud pony class of the day which was nice to hear.  There are 4 ponies in the line up pictured below.

It was a no pressure day for our first show with the girls.  They handled everything with no fuss and behaved perfectly!  They were all such good ponies.

Maverick waiting in-between classes, this photo was taken while the mares were in the ring.  He was a bit closer to all the nice looking mares today at Culcairn (not as much room as there is at Albury or Lockhart) but Maverick handled himself like a true  gentleman…of course!  He also had to see what all the fuss was about at the side show.

Yggdrasil Babette in the show ring.  Her first show with us and she behaved perfectly.  Led classes only for this year.

Thanks again to Matt Lawry our photographer while also on daddy duty.

Dun Manus Mathilda is also at her first show with us after only having been at Dylanglen Stud for the past few months.  Like Babette, Tildy is an absolute sweetheart!

Our beautiful girls in the line up today.

The slightly windy day didn’t seem to upset any of the ponies, lucky the sun was out!

Albury Show 17th September 2017


, ,

Dylanglen Stud took Asham Maverick to Albury Show this year and had a very successful day with him.  He just loves all the fuss and attention he receives at the show and his behavior could not be faulted.  He was washed yesterday on a cold and windy day and he was such a good boy!  He absolutely loved his day out today!


Champion Led Pure-Bred Connemara

First Led Pure-Bred Connemara Colt/Stallion

Unfortunately we missed watching the last class…. we must have forgotten about it during the excitement! Our congrats to Clairvale Eibhlin from Clairvale Connemaras for winning the Champion Ridden Pure/Part Bred Connemara.

It was great to see entries in all the Connemara classes today at Albury Show and hopefully there are even more Connemaras there next year!

Maverick is such a gentleman.  Michaela took him in the show ring today for his class and he did everything he was told without fuss.  It was their first time in the show ring together, Maverick’s second show and his first how with us.  We could not be happier!
