 * 23/2/16 - We have had a super bunch of foals born this season and it will soon be weaning time again! The sales list has been updated, photos available on request by emailing stonefields@farmside.co.nz .

Chestnut colts for both Roseraie Rhapsody (imp) (Sire - Three-B Goldies Charming Boy) and Ascot Phlox (Sire - Llanfairbryn Best Man - imp) and a beautiful palomino filly by Kingswood Snowman (Aus) out of Fair Gala Wilhomena (imp). 
Stonefields Xquisite (AI) (Willowcroft Regal Emblem - Aus x Kirreway Xcel - imp) has had a pretty Part Welsh chestnut colt by Llanfairbryn Best Man (imp). He will be offered for sale either with his dam or at weaning as a gelding.

 * 2/11/15 - Our first foal of the season has arrived, a beautiful Section B filly out of Derlwyn Lyndal (imp) and by Derlwyn Rhys (imp). This is the third time we have done this cross and it is working very well! She should be a good height and will possibly be for sale at weaning.


 * 11/4/15 - Autumn is weaning time here,  Welsh B colt (Stonefields Light Speed) and a Riding Pony filly (Stonefields Moscato) will be offered for sale once they have been taught the basics of life after weaning. We have also sold our lovely senior Welsh Mountain stallion - Llanfairbryn Best Man (imp), he has gone to a great home & I wish them all the best with him & his progeny in the future. We have retained a son & a few daughters to carry on with in the stud. Stonefields Razzle Dazzle (Stonefields Xcellence x Bamborough Raffia - imp) has been away being broken in, she will be returning home very soon to continue her education under saddle & will be available for sale. She is a beautiful liver chestnut with flaxen mane & tail, sure to stand out in the show or performance rings.   

* 18/3/15 - Foaling season has ended on a high note this year after starting out with a bit of bad luck. The filly fairy decided to be kind to us this time & we have a beautiful bay filly out of Three-B Pretty Woman (imp UK) by Glantraeth King Flyer (imp UK). Aptly named Stonefields Precious, this one is definitely a keeper! So on to the job of weaning the earlier foals and preparing them all for winter. We have a several ponies who will be offered for sale over the next few months - foals, youngstock (both fillies and geldings) and some ponies broken in. I have also decided to offer Llanfairbryn Best Man (imp) for sale as I am retaining a son and his  daughters in the stud, he has produced very well for me over the years. 

 * 9/2/15 - Well what a busy start to the year, just one more foal & one more show to go! We took three ponies to the WWRC Southern Circuit shows, Dr Pepper (Paint), Llanfairbryn the Marquis (imp) & Kinkora Topaz. Toby managed to take out Supreme Halter Exhibit against the other Western breeds, not bad for a 20 year old Welshie :-)
In between shows, Stonefields Promise delivered a pretty Bay Roan Colt.


* 23/12/14 - Our breeding season is finally underway, with a lack of sunshine this spring we are way behind last year! Derlwyn Lyndal (imp) has produced a lovely colt, a full brother to last years filly by Derlwyn Rhys (imp). Chestnut maybe roan, four whites & blaze he is a very pretty foal & will be available at weaning as a gelding. Things don't always go to plan when you breed ponies & as a result Meithrin Lady Madelene (imp) has been sent back up to Glantraeth King Flyer (imp UK) Roseraie Rhapsody (imp) has also gone on holiday to the North Island so fingers crossed for two healthy foals from these mares next season. Our show season is about to kick into gear starting with our Southern Circuit shows at the Wallace WRC grounds next month.


 * 8/7/14 - Lots of news to catch up on! After a very busy season we finally finished foaling in March this year, our dear old mare Kirreway Xcel (imp) presented us with a cracking little colt by our young Welsh Mountain stallion Stonefields Pen Draig. It should be a little quieter this coming season with two Welsh Cob mares confirmed in foal to Glantraeth King Flyer (imp UK) and two other mares who were not tested. Our show ponies have done us proud this season with all of them gaining Champions and/or Reserves and a few of them collecting Hi Point awards and trophies along the way too. Llanfairbryn the Marquis (imp) was shared this season by William and Logan, both boys winning their age group trophies for Hi Points in their respective grades. Bamborough Raffia (imp) had some time away from the broodmare paddock to give Western Riding a go and ended up having a great season.

Ascot Phlox has had a bay with plenty of white markings & blue eyes while Roseraie Rhapsody (imp) had a dark buckskin with three whites & star.

 * 17/11/12 - Some lovely foals have arrived so far this season, well worth
 the wait! They are a very friendly bunch this year all wanting to say hello at once.  Stonefields Pen Draig  has served his first mares this year with fantastic results, he has had a nice group of mares so I will be looking forward to seeing what he will produce for us.


 * 25/5/12 - Stonefields Llewellyn (iiu) our only foal for this season has been weaned for a  couple of months  now & is growing into a lovely colt. It looks as though he will be right up to height & have plenty of substance to go with his flashy colour.

Stonefields Llewellyn (iiu) looks like he will be up to height & is a super mover. He is quite stunning  with his four whites that go on forever, blaze & he may also be roan! He will be retained by the stud & run on as a  stallion prospect for the future.
