PRODUCER OF CHAMPIONS
I was tickled when Brenda Podoloski from Alvesta Welsh originally called me and asked if I was interested in purchasing China. Without any hesitation I accepted the offer. China produced an exquisite filly, Alvesta Lotus Blossum, and a handsome colt, Sol Invictus, while at Alvesta.
China is a 2004 chestnut mare (Stockham’s Commander M x Cennen Sonatina) and has been one of Dakota Prairie Welsh’s best mares, exhibiting and producing excellent sport pony form. 12.3h. She really has it all: bloodlines, movement, production and temperament. China’s sire is a leading producer of sport ponies. (Click here for video of Commander M). China’s dam, Cennen Sonatina, was also exceptional. We believe there is only 1 full sister to China alive and producing. Pedigree link.

Among Sol’s awards at his first show (double-judged), were the following: double 1st, double Junior Champion Section B Colt, Overall Welsh Youngstock Champion, double Res. Grand Champion Section B Male, double 1st Sport Pony Two-Year-Old, Junior Champion Sport Pony, Reserve Junior Champion Sport Pony, Reserve Grand Champion Sport Pony (the show’s largest division), 1st and 2nd Model Hunter 2 & Under, and Grand Champion Model Hunter Pony (second largest division). A pretty unbelievable show for a two-year-old.

Morton’s China Doll foaled a handsome palomino colt (below) for Dakota Prairie Welsh on April 28,2014, Dakota Prairie Cowboy (Morton’s China Doll x Alvesta Helios). He is the image of his sire Alvesta Helios. Very bold, friendly and smart. Cowboy has been sold and will serve as a herd sire.
