Aran Welsh Cobs near Abergavenny was founded in 1967, with the initial breeding of Welsh Mountain ponies.

The foundation cob mare, Cathedine Victory Maid, was purchased in 1972 in foal to the famous stallion, Hendy Brenin. The subsequent foal was a colt, Aran Idris, affectionately known as "Carrots" due to his spectacular colouring. He became the stud stallion until his untimely death in 1992. His progeny have excelled in the performance field, especially in show jumping.

At present, the broodmares are all descendants of Hendy Brenin and have inherited his wonderful temperament and quality of bone. Aran Bronwyn is the granddam of the stud, being the last daughter of Hendy Brenin and Victory Maid. Her daughters, grand-daughters and great grand-daughters make up the breeding stock of the present stud.

Brenhindy Taran-y-Storm is the present stud stallion continuing the Hendy Brenin blood line.

The Aran stud is situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The land rises steeply to 1000 feet, and the cobs are kept outside all the year round. The exception being the foals, which during their first winter are housed at night and are out during the day. Welsh cobs are a hardy breed and can cope with bad weather, being well protected by their thick coats and long manes and tails.

My New project for 2011 has been to start breeding pedigree Polled Herefords, see the new page.

October 2012 Update:

We have recently exported our first Welsh Cob to France: Aran Lady Jane (full sister to both Aran Storm and Aran Poppy on our ‘For Sale’ page) will be one of the foundation broodmares of a new Welsh Cob stud in the Normandy area.  She joins several other Aran cobs who have gone across the Channel over the years to live in Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands.
