Crystal Springs
Valiant Spirit

(Crystal Springs Capt Valiant X
Cleghorn Golden Slippers)

Breed: Section A Welsh Pony
Foaled: April 13, 2010
Gender: Stallion
Color: Palomino
Height: TBD

After purchasing Cleghorn Golden Slippers in 2015 and having her foal in the spring of 2016 with an identical palomino filly to our 2 yr old and yearling of the same breeding, we learned there was a 4th offspring of hers with the same crossing, Crystal Springs Valiant Spirit.

We really like this cross and knew we had to purchase Casper, as we are wanting a 4-pony hitch to drive.

It is always a challenge to find a matching pair for driving, let alone finding 4 identical full siblings close in age! So, we contacted his owners and purchased Casper at the age of 6.

He is a very vocal stallion but has great ground manners and we took him to his 1st show in 2021 for in hand classes.

We look forward to continuing his show career and hope to drive him in future classes, as we have started him ground driving.

Since all of the Welsh mares we own are related to Casper, he is open to the public for breeding services. Casper’s offspring have been palomino, black and bay roan with 100% fillies to date.

Canaan’s Brigus

Barn Name – “Brigus” 

Training Level: Beginning Driving 

Stallions 2

Canaan’s Brigus

(Canaan Pyro X Avalon Lady)

Breed: Newfoundland Pony
Foaled: 2014
Gender: Stallion
Color: Bay
Height: TBD
Owner: Carissa Holinaty

When we purchased Gewels we knew the importance of eventually breeding her, since the breed is critically endangered.  As there are only 12 foundation stallions in the breed it is a challenge to find a stallion that has different bloodlines than Gewels to cross her with.  So, when we heard that Brigus was for sale we jumped on the opportunity to buy him. 

We got him transported from Prince Edward Island in 2021; he is a proven stallion with 1 bay filly on the ground already. 

We have bred Brigus to Gewels and look forward to their 2022 foal. 

He carries the lines of Dancey, Red October, and Vinland’s Rusty of the Black River. 

Brigus is a quick learner and such an attention seeker, we can’t wait to see how he stamps his foals!
