Black Henry AKA 'Forevermore' is in his new home at North
Forks with Richard and Carol Holcombe. (Bear with me as
I have a story to tell you.) Black Henry is being used as
their premiere stud for the beautiful trio of Welsh Cob
mares they own. Carol originally imported Aemma's dam,
*Llanarth Nansi, a mare that produced many champion show and
breeding stock for the Holcombes. North Forks Lady Aemma
produced Pleasantstone Black Henry for us sired by North
Forks Black Earl. North Forks farms have bred many quality
Welsh Cobs from their special farm including our North Forks
Black Earl and his two half brothers: dressage star North
Forks Lord Percy and superstar, North Forks Brenin Cardi,
who are both presently rocking the dressage world with North
Forks bloodlines. They are all sired by Cantrbrook's Llwynog
Du whom is the Grandsire of Black Henry!
We have gone
full circle in our purchase of North Forks Black Earl when
he was born to North Forks Farm almost 18 years ago in June
1996. We had actually asked Carol to purchase him before he
was born to his dam, *Sydenham Morwydden, whom we had fallen
in love with for her amazingly beautiful presence impressive
movement and big warm eye. She was perfect and with Llwynog
as the sire this was an unbeatable combo. So the plans were
made; If Morwydden had a black colt of the quality we
expected from her when bred to Llwynog he would be ours.
When Earl was born we were extremely impressed by the strong
black colt and knew we wanted to purchase him. Then we
discovered the small white cross on the forehead of baby
Earl our eyes met and we knew that this colt was meant to be
bred Morwydden back to Llwynog for another truly golden
cross. Earl's dam was sold before Carol could breed her
back. Morwydden did have other amazing offspring
including another dressage rockstar, Toandos Mountain
Man but Black Earl is the only resulting cross of the
mating between the two Welsh Cobs.
an offer of a good show home for Forevermore AKA
Henry and we almost signed the papers over...
But when Carol called us about the purchase of
Forevermore AKA Henry, we knew that without a doubt
this was the right home for him.
