Trevallion Picasso wins sire of the year at HOYS for the fourth year.

Trevallion Picasso wins the SECTION D SIRE OF THE YEAR AT HOYS for the fourth year running.


Had a letter last week confirming our Trevallion Picasso has won the Kellythorpe Stud HOYS section D sire of the year for the fourth year running. He has three offspring representing him there, We wish Abergavenny Yasmin, Monahawk Masterpiece and the ever consistent Dyffryngwy Sir Picasso and all connections the very best of luck. Two of the above have also qualified for the juniors. We are very proud of him and his achievement. We do have stock with Picasso bloodlines available.


April 2015

Team Batt (Jonathan, Claire and baby Catrin) had a great Easter Bank holiday weekend judging the Welsh Belgium spring show in Putte. Some wonderful Ponies and Cobs on display.The turn out and the standard of the handlers was second to none. We had a great welcome and made some fantastic new friends!

Lampeter saw us return to being the judged rather than the Judge, and Abergavenny Glory Bee took first place in the 2 year old Section C Filly class under Mrs Christine Ingram of the Newbrook Stud.

The first foals of the year are arriving too, a colt for Sally by Travis, a half / three quarter brother to the filly pictured on this page for Bayleaf’s dam by Fronarth Robben. And we also have a bay filly for Mattie by Matty! Confused? Check out the foals page for all the details of this year’s foals as they arrive. This year’s letter for the Section D foals is “F” … We are always happy to allow new owners to name their foals, once payment has been made ūüôā

RIP Pennal Calon Lan

Sad news to share today.  Just to let you all know that we have had Pennal Calon Lan PTS.

Purchased as a foal at the Cob Sales in 1988, he has a been a hugely influential stallion to both the stud and the breed in general producing both top class in hand and ridden welsh cobs full of type and character.  Its never an easy thing to say goodbye to a horse that has been so much a part of your life for so many years, but his health was deteriorating so we were in no doubt that it was the right time to make the decision.

May Foal Arrives

We’re really pleased with the Black Filly Foal by¬†Danaway Scrumpy Jack¬†and out of¬†Cwmtawe Wallace. ¬†Hopefully we will get some photos of the foals before too long.

Abergavenny Chantilly Lace

2012 Bay Filly b.2012

A rare opportunity to acquire an eye-catching show filly of this calibre with four white socks. Her dam being a bronze and silver medal winner. Her sire being a prolific youngstock winner including the Royal Welsh and by the legendary Danaway Tango. Sure to make an exceptional show filly and broodmare for the future. Unshown to date, well handled, regularly wormed. Not to be missed!

All the mares are doing fine in the snow – although the pile of big bales is going down fast….

Happy New year!!

All the Batts would like to wish you a Happy New Year!!

As there isn’t much to see outside this time of year, I thought I would be very generous and cheer you all up with a photo of me doing my best milky bar kid impersonation.

Got to start ’em young….
