Rugger as we affectionately call him, was imported from the renowned Telynau Stud in December 2005. Rugger was one of only a few jet-black babies born at Telynau Stud. We are fortunate to own this beauty and to retain him as one of our breeding stallions.
Rugger's pedigree includes such lines as Downland, Ceulan, and Coed Coch, to name a few. Rugger's sire, champion Paddock Golden Dancer, is a flashy chestnut stallion who is known to produce quality offspring. His dam, Prestonmill Genevieve, is a beautiful brown/black mare whose sire is Windborne Jeremy Fisher.
As a four year old, Rugger has impeccable ground manners and is still maturing nicely. We are happy to say that this year we chose to use Rugger for some of our breeding plans. He successfully bred two of our stunning mares, Rosmel Strawberry Fizz and Hickory Springs Cypress, our Thoroughbred mare. Rugger is such a joy to own, and with his loving personality, great conformation and bloodlines behind him, he is sure to produce champion after champion for us!
We are pleased to announce the arrival of two of his first foals born this spring. Rugger, as our foundation Section B stallion, has stamped his babies with his grace, beauty and excellent conformation. We are so pleased with his first foals. Both babies, Hickory Springs Bobbie Jo and Hickory Springs Argyle Sox are gorgeous, healthy and are just breathtaking. Our vet said she has never seen such straight legs, excellent conformation and friendliness in such young babies as Rugger's. We are so very pleased with our newest additions to Hickory Springs Welsh Ponies.
