|What's the latest news from Castleberry
|We are extremely proud of Pat and Marie Wagner and their accomplishments with
Castleberrys Delight (*Tuscani Dundee x *Bwlchllan Bessie).
In 2008 Delight was the National Dressage Pony Cup Champion at Training Level with
Pat and the Reserve Champion at First Level with Marie. In 2009 Delight was the First
level Reserve Ch. with Pat. The competition was strong and there were many
professional riders competing in this prestigious event.
Pat and Delight have been competing at First Level in Open USDF Competition. In
2008,with just the minimum number of test scores to report, Pat and Delight finished as
USDF 2008 All Breed Open First Level Reserve Champion!
Congratulations and thank you to Pat, Marie, and Castleberrys Delight!
|*Synod Rosie O Grady had a filly!
This grand, 23 yr young mare has a very impressive pedigree, being an own daughter of
Brynymor Welsh Magic and Synod Rosemary, who have both produced Royal Welsh
winners and /or top sellers at prestigious Cob sales in Wales. Rosie is a kind, sweet-
natured and wise old mare and is a joy to have around. She is kindly on lease from Eli
Schlabach of North Star Farm. She blessed us with an especially gorgeous filly on Aug.
31st, Castleberrys Rosalee who will be retained as future breeding stock.
|*Tuscani Dundee *Bwlchllan Bessie
This cross has consistently produced top notch foals. On April 27, we were blessed with
our long awaited filly. Castleberrys Dyma Hi is named after her paternal grandmother,
Derwen Dyma Hi, who was the top selling foal at the 1978 Llanarth sale and a great
show mare. Dyma Hi means, "She is here"! Dyma Hi will be retained.
|Castleberrys Last Emperor Gallod Fflamboyant
Wow, just look at the results of this breeding of a linebred Derwen Rosinas Last colt to a
linebred Nebo Daniel mare! Castleberrys Fflying Duchess has been retained.
|2010 Foals...another very good year!
|Castleberrys Chantilly Lace arrived on April 12th. She is the first
foal by our Jr. stallion, Castleberrys Ffame ap Culhwch, and out of
our (leased) beautiful, proven, imported champion mare, *Tuscani
Myfanwy. We are thrilled with the quality of temperament, type
and extreme movement that came through in Ffame's first baby.
We were surprised at the amount of white on this girl. She has
lacey-white sabino markings extending all up her hind legs, on her
flanks and behind her withers. She will really stand out and be
remembered in the breed and performance ring!
|Castleberrys Ffrangipani was next to arrive on May 7th. We
bought her mother, Gallod Fflamboyant, specifically to breed
to *Tuscani Dundee and we couldn't be more pleased with
the result. This flashy filly is loaded with pony type,
movement and presence. She has the bold but sweet, "in
your pocket" personality that Dundee puts on his foals. She is
yet another very well bred, beautiful Section D filly that we
are proud to have carry our prefix and represent Welsh Cobs
in North America.
|Two outstanding Section D fillies! What a great opportunity for breeders
looking for quality & bloodlines!
|Castleberrys Rocket Man arrived on May 8th and just look
at him! He is a perfectly marked, beautiful bay and wow,
can he move! He is the second foal by our Jr. stallion,
Castleberrys Ffame ap Culhwch. His dam is our wonderful
Warmblood mare, Regal, who has previously produced such
terrific Sport Cob/horses for us. Rocketman has been sold to
S judge, Sue Kolstad for her future Grand Prix mount!
|*Tuscani Dundee was selected by artist Karen Brenner for her Beautiful Horses of
Indiana project. We enjoyed meeting she and her sister, seen here with Castleberrys
Chianti, Amanda & Castleberrys Ffrangipani. Dundee posed and showed off well for
Karen. We are very pleased with the results. Can you spot Dundee in Karen's paintings?
|2010 Show News
|We attended only 4 shows in 2010. Three Supreme Championships and three Reserve
Supreme Championships were fun and encouraging to our breeding program.Two Gold
shows resulted in one Supreme & two Res. Supreme Ch Geldings and one Overall
Reserve Supreme Champion as well as a Reserve Ch. English Pleasure.. Two Overall
Supreme Championships were awarded at Bronze rated shows. Castleberrys Rockette
also did well in the Open classes winning the tough Sport Horse in-hand & under saddle.
|We don't show often, but our stock tends to do very well when they do. Here are some
2011 accomplishments from Cobs that we own or have bred & sold.

can see how well Rory did, and we are so proud of Chianti's second place in a large,
tough class of English Pleasure Cobs. She did an awesome job, especially considering she
