August 2012 update:
I'm now on Facebook - still learning the ropes so bear with me!
In September last year we went up to Anglesey to meet Cwmhendy Buster at home. He is one of the most popular and influential Section A stallions of recent years and his beautiful and successful progeny have ensured that he has headed the sire ratings several times. His model is now in full production and proving very popular.
It was a privilege to meet the great Eyarth Celebration who has had such a huge influence on Section B breeding. He wore his years lightly and was such a credit to Jessie Parry, and the bond between them was obvious to see. Sadly he has since passed on, but he will be long remembered with admiration and affection. The model of him is already halfway to being sold out.
I don’t make many small trophies nowadays, as the portrait models keep me busy – however for a few years now I’ve supplied our local Point-to-Point with small racing memento trophies for winning owners and riders. Details on the ‘Heads and Trophies’ page.
A new addition to the range is this pair of bookends, which are made of solid beech with two of the larger pony head models mounted on them. They are available with any combination of heads – details on the ‘Heads and Trophies’ page.
I’m going to add a Welsh Cob head to the range shortly.
June 2010 update:
‘Delami Destiny’ model painted by Simon Jameson
My sculptures are now being painted for me by Simon Jameson,
and I’m really pleased by the high quality of his work, which is being much admired. Simon studied Fine Art at Brighton Polytechnic and
has a website at www.1066creations.co.uk
The limited edition model of Carwed Charmer is now in full production and proving to be very popular, so early ordering is recommended.
Two are already on their way to Australia!
The new model of a Section A mare and foal will be ready by mid July. We’re planning to produce this in two basic colour schemes, grey and chestnut. It can also be painted as a portrait of a particular mare and
foal for an additional charge.. Please let me know as soon as possible
if you want one for collection at the Royal Welsh Show 2010.
This is a limited edition of just fifty, so early ordering is recommended. Pictures to follow shortly.
Both the models of the Highland Pony and Eyarth Rio are now
completely sold out. I’m delighted to report that the Highland model raised approximately £5,000 for the Equine Grass Sickness Fund,
due partly to a successful raffle for number 1 of the edition. I’m hoping to produce another model for the EGSF before too long.
I am a lifelong National Hunt enthusiast, so it was a great thrill to
meet Miko de Beauchene in May 2008 at Robert and Sally Alner’s
yard in Dorset. Miko won the Welsh Grand National in 2007.
At 17.2 hh he is a tad larger than my usual Welsh pony subjects!
However he was really gentle and well mannered, despite having
his summer holiday interrupted by a strange woman with
a tape measure……
Sue and I donated number 2 of the edition of 5 to the
Robert Alner Fund, for which I’m delighted to say it raised £500.

A new model of a Thoroughbred with bridle is now available.
The first one of these was presented as a racing trophy at
Wetherby in December to the connections of Punjabi, the winner of
the Fighting Fifth Hurdle.

EGSF Highland Pony is now in full production and selling well.
It is limited to 50 in total and priced at £135, of which £20 is donated
to the Equine Grass Sickness Fund (click here
for more information).
February 2008, the EGSF commemorated its first 20 years with
a reception at the Moredun , near Edinburgh, at which its patron
HRH the Princess Royal was present. I was thrilled to be invited,
along with other fund-raisers, to be presented to her Royal Highness.
It was a most enjoyable afternoon and I took the opportunity to deliver
number 1 of the edition of 50 Highland Pony models to the Fund. Extraordinary
to think that it all started, for me, on a wet October day
in 1989 at Newtown Horse Sale with the purchase of a threadbare
Me at Moredun, February 2008
model of Eyarth Rio is selling exceptionally well, with several
going to Europe and three to California. I would anticipate that this
edition will be completely sold out by the end of this year, so early
booking is advisable if you want to purchase one.
