Dear friends,thank you so much for your support, without you,I would not be President Elect of our wonderful society. As ever, Ifor.
Annwyl ffrindiau,diolch o galon am eich cymorth,heb hyn,ni fyddwn yn ddirprwy lywydd o’n cymdeithas wych. Fel arfer, Ifor.
I have been asked to detail the history of our family within the Welsh Pony and Cob Society.
My grand father (Aeron Stud), and his brother were founder members of the society, at the beginning of the last century.
In 1944 my father Roscoe Lloyd, bought the mare Dewi Rosina, grand dam and half sister to Pentre Eiddwen Comet, and became a member of the WPCS, and later was elevated as an honorary vice-president for services to the breed. She was to become the founding mare of the Derwen Stud.
Twenty three years later, in 1967 I became a life member,and served on council for over thirty years, and for a term as chair.
When Myfanwy and I married in 1974, she became a life member, and we enroled our son Dyfed as a life member upon his birth in 1981.
Therefore, the family link with the Welsh Pony and Cob Society is over a hundred and ten years in being,and is continuing.

seventieth anniversary of the Derwen Stud, and our fortieth of marriage.
