*FRIARS WELSH TEARS
*FRIARS WELSH TEARS (born 2003) – Section A Welsh mare, 11.2 hh, by Pontgam Supreme (Penual Mark x Pontgam Sorceress) X Friar’s Tiny Tears (Cefnfedw Golden Glory x Friar’s Golden Charm). When one first sees “Misty,” one almost immediately knows she comes from the famous Friar’s Stud in Wales. Her big boned and muscular body, reminiscent of her dam, Tiny Tears, and her beautifully dished head and large eye are all characteristic traits we have come to expect from a Friar’s Welsh pony. Misty does not disappoint in those traits or deviate from them. She is a beautiful chestnut mare, with lots of ticking, and a flaxen mane and tail. And, she has the most kind, gentle, and loving temperament. When importing a pony without actually having seen the pony in person before the sale is completed, purchasers always wonder, “Have we done the right thing? Have we chosen the right pony?” Those concerns and questions certainly ran through our minds; but, our concerns were eliminated and our questions answered in 2004 when Misty, our imported Welsh yearling from the Friar’s Stud, was named Reserve Supreme Champion at the Mid-Atlantic WPCS show held in Front Royal, VA.
