PENLLWYNUCHEL SEREN OLAF (1987)

Penllwynuchel Seren Olaf

Rhondda Heather


Roedd haf 2008 yn gyfnod trist iawn i ni yma yng Ngwynfaes. Heb rybydd, collwyd Seren Olaf a hithau yn edrych llond ei chot. Dyma ein teyrnged iddi a brintiwyd yn y Llawlyfr 2009.

The summer of 2008 was a very sad time for us at Gwynfaes. Without any warning, we lost Seren Olaf at 21 years old. Here is our tribute to Seren Olaf as printed in the 2009 Journal.

Penllwynuchel Seren Olaf
1987- 2008

On July 5th I lost Seren Olaf (Last Star) and she certainly was that. When she was only 3 weeks of age, my grandfather Mr G. J. Williams, Penllwynuchel Stud passed away and as she was the very last foal he had seen, I named her Seren Olaf. At this time I had two cob fillies, Seren Olaf and her older sister Deiniolen.
Seren Olaf was always the star of the field and became my foundation mare and what a foundation she gave me. Since then, I have not bought a cob and all but two of my cobs at Gwynfaes are line bred to Seren Olaf, the other two to her sister Deiniolen. She was my template - presence, power, depth, quality limbs as well as a tremendous head and tail carriage are the attributes she passed on to her progeny. She had grace and an aura that captivated all who saw her.
As a 2 yr old she was covered by Nebo Daniel and produced one of her best fillies, Penllwynuchel Sioned. Sioned is by now Gwynfaes's most famous dam, being the dam of Gwynfaes Culhwch who won the George Prince of Wales Cup at the 2002 Royal Welsh Show and qualifying for HOYS, the Yeomans Trophy at the 2005 Royal Welsh Show and is currently Champion Sire. Seren Olaf was covered by Nebo Daniel a number of times after that but all the offspring were colts, with the last Gwynfaes Pendaran now doing very well with the Brolas Stud.
Seren Olaf was covered on three consecutive years by Thorneyside Flyer. The colt Penllwynuchel Mathonwy is proving to be an excellent stockgetter with his son, Pencalow Royal Rebel, a Royal Welsh winner and now going very well undersaddle with Sara Ackers at the Parciau Stud. The filly Gwynfaes Lleucu Llwyd was sold to Lilian Pruissen, Rhiannon Stud, Holland and Penllwynuchel Hannah is now with the Merricks at Brynithion Stud and is the dam of their extravagant moving yearling filly, Brynithion Hannah sired by Culhwch. Seren Olaf produced three fillies by Derwen Dessert Express, Gwynfaes Rhiannon who is now with the Berthope Stud as well as Gwynfaes Blodeuwedd and Gwynfaes Sara. After leasing Tymor Pele for a year from Patsy Gibbons, Seren Olaf produced the filly Gwynfaes Olwen. Culhwch and Olwen are certainly one of my best combinations, producing the top class show filly Gwynfaes Carnwennan sold to Ceri Fell at the Brynseion Stud where she has won numerous championships and medals. Seren Olaf's last foal, Gwynfaes Y Gof , ironically was born on the 25th May the birth date of my very dear friend and blacksmith Albert Y Gof, hence the name. Y Gof is doing very well in the showring, already a Champion, and I'm sure there's more to come.
Seren Olaf was never shown away from home, as I concentrate on showing Youngstock and Culhwch, but every year I compete in the West Wales Association progeny competition. One of the classes is the Saltmarsh Cup which is for 3 animals in direct female line and here Seren Olaf proved that she was a mare that the judges rated very highly as in the last 9 years the class consisting of Seren Olaf, Sioned and Culhwch won this class on 8 occasions.
For a month this year at Gwynfaes, between the birth of Gwynfaes Indeg and the death of Seren Olaf , I had a six generation female line, Seren Olaf - Sioned - Bore Mai - Gwenllian - Elliw - Indeg , I don't know how often this occurs but I am proud and indebted to Seren Olaf for giving me so much.
Many will associate Gwynfaes with Culhwch, but here at Gwynfaes we know that it all started with SEREN OLAF.

Erbyn hyn mae wedi cael un ebol wrth Noah sef Gwynfaes Eseia. Mae'n wag ar gyfer 2012 felly mae'n bosib bydd hi nol yn y sioeau ar gyfer 2012.

This is our first filly from Gwynfaes Elen and Culhwch and I think this picture of her says it all. Eurddydd has been to a few shows in 2007 and 2008. She was sixth at the Royal Welsh 2008. Now, she has had one foal from Noah and has been left empty for 2012 with the intention of showing her or leasing her for showing.
