HISTORY OF THE WELSH COB, SECTION D, CONTINUED
The Welsh Cob is a strong, general purpose animal with free forceful movement. He should show great quality and have as much substance as possible without being coarse. Welsh Cobs have spirit and inner fire, however this is tempered by a gentle, kindly disposition and a willingness to obey. These attributes, combined their stamina and proud, aristocratic bearing make them the natural choice of many discriminating horsemen of all ages. The Welsh Cob made an outstanding contribution to man; both in war and in peace. During 1845, Henry Tudor ascended the throne of England due to the efforts of the Welsh Cob militia mounted on their swift and hardy Welsh Cobs.Up until 40 or 50 years ago the Welsh Cobs was so valuable to the British war office that premiums were payed to the best stallions.The War Office used Welsh Cobs for the mounted infantry and for pulling heavy guns and equipment through rugged, mountainous terrain noy easily surmounted by motorized vehicles. The Morgan horse almost certainy owes his origin to the Welsh Cobs left behind in America by the British Cavalry at the end of the 18th century. In peacetime, prior to the advent of motorised vehicles, the Welsh Cob proved to be the quickest, most reliable transport for docters and businessmen. Recent importations from Great Britain have sparked an active interest in these animals across North America. As did their ancestors, the modern day Welsh Cob and Welsh Pony of Cob Type truly personify the words of the motto on the Welsh Coat of Arms-Ich Dien-"I Serve".
