Cadno was the first foal we bred here at Nerwyn. He was born in 1979 by Coed Coch Barrog and out of Coed Coch Lili. We decided upon this mating as both parents bring together all the main female lines present at Coed Coch. It was definitely the right decision to take as Cadno has been both an outstanding show stallion and sire during his thirty one years with us.

Over the years Cadno won many Championships too numerous to mention, I list just a few of his main wins which include Male Champion and Reserve Supreme Section A at the Royal Welsh, championships at Great Yorkshire, Leicester County, United Counties, Royal Lancashire and Anglesey County.

He had sired some outstanding stock for us, especially females. At the moment we have retained ten of his daughters and two sons. He has also sired beautiful stock for other breeders, with one of his daughters sold at the 2000 Fayre Oaks Sale for a price in excess of £2,000.
