Imported from Wales in 1991 as a foal, William has, in a very short period
of time, shown how important it is to have a stallion with presence.
William is an extremely kind and gentle stallion, who runs out with
his mares or covers in hand. He is renowned in reproducing his wonderful
refined length of rein, gorgeous Welshy head and eye, and fabulous movement.

his mark, winning many championships and awards around Ontario and has
subsequently developed a well deserved reputation in producing winning
youngstock at major shows internationally.
