NINETT & MICHAEL

We are a smaller stud who puts a spotlight on a serious breed of the Welsh Cob.

Through the years we have made many thoughts about which type of cob is true to us and what we expect of them. For our breeding we wish to use proven and strong sire lines and especially, strong dam lines to carry the foundation of our young-stock and future broodmares.

In 2018 we were honored as Best breeders of the year by the Danish Welsh Pony and Cob society.

Our goal is to breed animals there will improve the Welsh Cob breeding in Denmark.

We wish to be acknowledged with a good reputation and a high service level.

We can offer prime quality foals and youngstock who has had the best precondition to be the best friend for you as an upcoming owner of an Adlais cob.

OUR HISTORY

Adlais got its name in 2008 when we registered our first foal Adlais First Edition. The name Adlais is Welsh for Echo.

Our ambition is that our name will go like an echo from mouth to mouth, through new happy Adlais Welsh Cobs owners.

Adlais is quite easy to pronounce and yet many find it difficult … it is pronounced as Atlas (a map of the earth) just with i in between a and s of course.

Like many others, our breeding started in the low. Our first mare was Pennal True Love who Ninett fell in love with as a foal back in 2004. True Love crushed many hearts on her way, but most important she crushed Ninett’s husband Michael’s heart. Back then Michael had no interest in horses, so this was a very important step for us as stud to grow, as Michael has been very keen on the breeding ever since. True Love was a very smart mare with a great talent for dressage.

Since back then more cobs has been bought to the stud and some has left us as well, either because they were leased for a period, they had given us a foal to retain or if they couldn’t make up for our high standards for our breed.
With us our cobs typically have a hight between 14.1 to 14.3 hands.

We have the old-fashioned Cardigan type but cobs who are in between the cardigan cob and the lighter English cob is also popular with us.

We like our cobs to have a good touch of pony, a good front and a good depth of body.

OUR NEW STABLE

We bought the farm in the village of Allindelille, near Ringsted in 2013.

At that time our stable building had been used for cattle and pigs. The roof was very low and the windows pretty small.

This was the first job to do, to make a nice stable for our cobs. As soon as we had the keys to the house we started building. It was a long and hard time, with sweat, tears and a lot of frustrations, there was a lot of things we had never thought should be taken into consideration.

At last in the late autumn of 2013 the stable was ready for our cobs.

It’s now a stable with plenty of light and nice height to the roof. Our cobs has got rubber mats to stand on when they are stabled in their 13 x 13 feet box. The light above them can be dimmed for the foaling season and we have got 3 cameras to monitor them.

We water them in the old manner, with buckets, it’s always good to know how much they drink. The stable floor to groom and wash is 13 feet wide, we have got drains so that we can wash the cobs inside. ‘

We are very happy and pleased with our stable.

The outside surroundings are great, we have got about five hectares of grass, we have got a sandfield for wintertime and we have a massive forest as a neighbor with lots for ridingpaths.
