It is with the Greatest Sadness

It is with the greatest of sadness to us all, to inform our members of the resignation of our current Chairman Stewart Franklin (Sarum Stud). Stewart has been a valuable part of the Association for many years and he will continue to support the work of the SWA, with his extensive knowledge and wisdom of the Welsh breeds.
His Vice-Chairman, Yvonne Small of the Pasadena Stud, is to step forward into the Chairman’s role.
