an eclectic collection!
Beth, friend, neighbor, riding buddy, inspired
baker, artist (Western
Art), and all round best human being. Mountainair NM. There is a
picture of us hacking out on the Caer Wydr "about" page.
Pony Farm, OK, Janet Crouch, driving ponies, Section B Welsh (Caer
Wydr Brian's daughter Angel & her daughters) and AMHR minaiture
des Jardins, Imagio Studios & The Art Center of
Mountainair NM. Artist, musician, Gurdjeffian, formerly dreamer

Fan Club, Youngsville Louisiana. Youngsville HS is
my alma mater, where I was salutatorian, yearbook editor, student
council president, and YHS delegate to Pelican Girls State (this being
Louiaiana, we learned a lot about fixing elections and vote buying
under the table), as well as earned the distinction of having edited
the only Yearbook to be censored. Best runions on the planet. Laisser
les bon temps rouler.
Wilson, Bristol Pony Farm,
New Ulm TX. Pony pictures and
pedigrees. Emphasis on big Bs but includes Bristol As &
mini. Very first "pony person" I got to know well, visiting often
over the years, first at Channelview and now in New Ulm. Many are the
nights spent over cheap wine, pedigrees, and old pony pictures,
contemplating notions such as entering a chimp in equitation classes
(the rule says under 18 but nothing about the rider's species) or
breeding a longear to show in half Welsh classes.
Shadowfax Farm, Crowley LA. Great
friend - even if she does not write often enough. - chiropracter,
pragmatic practitioner of holistic medicine, and Tehcnical Delegate for
Dressage & Combined Driving.
Pride Pony Club, Lafayette LA. Back in Riding Place days,
I was a volunteer USPC instructor PPC & used to load up the trailer
with Cody & the Welsh for my students to ride at Rallies. At one
time, Mother was contemplating a novel tentatively titled, "The
Pony Club Wars."
Lane Farm, Thoroughbreds, Sporthorses, Eventers,
Opelousas LA. Laura made the wise & so much more fun decision
to give up on being a Dressage Queen and event instead. To event with her daughter instead
of being a horse show
- Gail Morris, Gayfields Welsh, always
remembered with deep appreciation for helping me get my ponies home
from Missouri so many years ago. Louisiana
Lagniappe, Homestead Flirt's *Brockwell Spider daughter, LOM
producer bred by Cliff Merchant and Caer Wydr is grande
dame/dam of the Gayfields B mare band and will leave a lasting imprint
on US Section B breeding.
Winet - EFI
(English for the Internet), Berkeley CA. I started volunteer
teaching for EFI back at Davis because I wanted to learn how to teach
online and get ESL teaching experience. We are always on the
lookout for volunteers because that is the only way EFI can continue to
offer free classes. If you are interested, check out the page and write David or drop in at the
Sunday teacher's seminar.
Harvey, Writing Matters, lives on an island off Vancouver, Canada.
Pat's page is still up but she is taking a break from teaching ESL
online and asked not to be linked. Her huband, Wayne (aka the Bear),
sells telescopes online so I might add his if I can find it.
- Dale Harris - poetry and
pottery. Sunflowers. Poetry slammer. Organizer of annual Poets &
- Tony Leuzzi's
excellent poetry, Rochester NY. We
were in the USL MA program in Lafayette together. Tony edits, writes,
and teaches at Rochester Community College. I am pleased to have the
one to introduce him to C.P. Cavafy.
- Pecan Creek Welsh
Ponies & the Pecan Creek "little
people" (4-legged), Jane
Cozart (aka WWW for "Wicked Witch of the West"), Moran TX. Caer
Wydr Brian, my first
Grenadier foal, was her first Sec B stallion, which makes us kin,
Farm (Welsh, natch)
Welsh Connection (moribund but may do phoenix thing), Claudia
Novak, Dunstable MA. Not just ponies - many informative pages on
places visited in Europe and the US.
Pony Farm, East Bernard TX. Possbily the best
Section A ponies in the country & maybe on the planet.
Repository of Texas Stud lines, including the produce of Avalon Bonnie
Pony Farm, Beaumont TX. Home of Xanadu's
daughter, Divide's Luck of the Irish (Paddy), who
much resembles her
sire & is getting the chance to be both beloved personal pony &
versatile competition pony - everything I always knew her pop had the
potential to be.
Tarver, Dividing Ridge Farm,
Many LA. Xan's final home, where he
had the great good fortune to end his days as beloved 1st pony of Mary
Beth's 1st grandson. This, I suspect, had always been his true vocation
ever since Pilar, as a 6 year old, declared him her pony & would lead
hm about by the mane.
- Jim Graham, our very
favorite 3-day eventer in the universe, Meadow Run
Farm, Florence AL. More than just a talented rider, Jim is an
trainer and instructor. Taking up eventing at turning 40, I spent
a grueling but exhilarating and unforgettable December at Meadow Run as
working student. Driving in I noted a number of x-country jumps
that I knew I would not be jumping. Ha!
LeTard Williams, Tiedyefor's
Journal & Maison
Celeste, where she is
getting started selling her original design and collages on line. The
themed (Paris, Mexico, Texas, Vampires, etc) Valentine designs
are well worth the visit Celeste teaches ESL (used to teach French
until jobs dried up) in K-12. She also has a food blog with lots of
recipes. Now if she would only stop referring to Sable as her pony who
just happens to be living with me, all would be syncopatic
