An Appreciation of Beryl Alcock who bred the Solva Ponies will follow.She bred the dam of the father of the pony pictured above aswell as Solva Cocktail.

Beryl passed away in December, 2010.

        We first met Beryl over two decades ago when looking for a quality coloured pony, a rarity in those days. My father kept a lookout and  reported that at a local stud there was an exceptional filly foal with a disgruntled owner. Beryl was not fond of coloureds although her homebred broodmare, out of a seemingly grey mother, was clearly that. Beryls mare, Solva Cherie, had produced a series of solid-coloured fillies by Thoroughbred, Angel Aboard. She  was back again in hope that the following year there would be less white for Beryl. On finding that the sire of the foal at foot  was by  the already legendary Small-Land Mambrino,there was no hesitation and Solva Cocktail came to us. This was the beginning of our lasting friendship with Beryl.

Beryl bred her ponies  thoughtfully and responsibly. She always kept her numbers to a manageable few. Even so, those she bred made their mark.

Solva Cherie obligingly produce all fillies for Beryl, including Solva Seraph,by Angel Aboard and her sisters Angelica and Saintly. Solva Saintly (the redeeming filly ) remains at Levant Stud with Evadne Cosgrove. Solva Cocktail deserves a chapter to herself. We owe Cocktail nothing and remain ever grateful that Beryl allowed us to buy her.

With us, Cherie bred Hollyland Chirico, Hollyland Heaven Can Wait (so called because we thought he would be her last foal) and  then Hollyland Strawberry Hill.  H. Heaven Can Wait had two coverings before being gelded and sired 2009 Horse of the Year Show reserve  overall Champion coloured, Brookfarm Heaven Scent.

The last foal Beryl bred was from an exquisite small Arab mare. The pure bred Arab filly foal was called Solva Swingboat. Beryl hand reared this foal as she sadly lost the mare. Swingboat would be a teenager by now. It would be good to hear of her.

We kept in touch over the years with visits, pictures and cards.Our friendship was valued greatly Beryl was in her nineties when she passed away at the end of 2010.  She was a lovely friend and will be much missed.
