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 1,000 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.

October 2015 Update

We have had an eventful year with the cobs; Aran Annabel was sold in the Spring to a lovely family to be a mother/daughter share with lots of Riding Club and Pony Club fun in her future. We have also recently sold Aran Poppy and she has gone to Kent to do dressage. Unfortunately, we lost our stud stallion, Brenhindy Taran Y Storm, at the grand age of 26 at the end of the Summer. Consequently, our broodmares are having some time off as we search for a suitable stallion to take them to next year. Claire and Monty have been enjoying themselves this year doing fun rides and going to the beach for the first time in June.

August 2015 Update

The Hereford cattle are increasing with twins Dave & Daphne and three lovely heifers Delilah, Daisy and Doris, sired by Romany 1 Frisky or Moorside 1 Joseph.
