Born May 24, 2013
On May 24, 2013, Sumrin Tatum O'Neill gave birth to a filly. We named her Sumrin Saint Mary, as her mother spent a lot of time in 2012 at Rhesfair stud in the town Saint Mary Church in Wales.
Her sire is the stallion Rhesfair Joe Chwedl, who has won championships in Wales and was 5th at the Royal Welsh show 2011 in a very strong three year old colt class. Joe is by champion stallion Dukeshill Magnum out of twice national champion Caerheulog Lady Jane.
Sumrin Saint Mary was first shown at the local show of Lierop fokpaardendag as a filly foal. She won her class and was declared filly foal champion of the show.
As a two-year old, she was entered at the spring show of the WPCV in Houten. Under Mr. Gwyndaf Edwards of Fronbach stud. Saint Mary won her class and ended up reserve youngstock champion of the day.

On May 10, 2019, Sumrin Saint Mary gave birth to a chestnut filly foal by Horselands Cracker.
She is unique, as she combines our two lead mares from the 1990's. Both grand dams were born in 2009 and are great grand daughters of our foundation mare Dyrin Tina. Star of Hope is the first pony to carry 4 lines of Dyrin Tina. Surprisingly enough, the filly seems to stay chestnut.
Her name is a name I have wanted to give for some time already. When Dyrin Seren Wen foaled 4 weeks too early in 1983, she had a beautiful chestnut filly, which I planned to register as Sumrin Star of Hope. Unfortunately, she never made it and died after 10 days.
The name comes from a mare named Grove Star of Hope, born in 1911. At age 21, she gave birth to a filly named Winestead Larina, who had a tremendous influence on the breed through her offspring Revel Light, Revel Springlight, Revel Lady, Revel Rosette, Revel Mysteria, Wentworth Silver Cream, Winestead Teresa and Caradog O'r Dwn.
On June 24, 2020, the anniversary of the death of her grandmother Sumrin Twilight, Sumrin Star of Hope suffered a massive injury on her near hind leg. Her tendon was torn and we feared she had to be put down. With the very professional care of Paardenkliniek Venlo, she did recover well and we shiwed her once. Due to her injury, she isn't 100% square, so she is staying as a brood mare.
Sumrin Star of Hope has been covered by Airborne Montgomery, for a foal due early June, 2023.
