Our first Belgian draft horse (known as the gentle giants) mare, Dixie, joined the farm in 2003 coming from Jennifer's father, a long-time Belgian horse breeder in Maine. Dixie's first foal, Daisy, joined us in 2004. From this point forward we have continued to add to the herd which now consists of 15 Belgian draft horses and 3 saddle horses. These gentle giants range in age from newborns to 24 years in age.
Currently out of the 15 Belgian draft horses we have 6 broodmares (which are mares that produce a foal). Two youngsters that are young and growing very fast. Lastly for the mares is retiree Dixie.
We have our herd sire that has done a wonderful job of helping us expand the herd. He has produced some big beautiful foals for our farm.
We have our group of 5 sweet geldings that just love to please. They do a wonderful job for us every time they are hitched up.
All the mare and geldings work together doing various jobs for us on the farm and at the shows. In 2008, we started showing these horses at various venues around New England.
Lastly for the horse family we have our 3 saddle horses that my daughter loves to ride. She enjoys riding the Belgian draft horses as well and enters into some classes with them while we are at shows.
Please call and stop in for a visit, wagon or sleigh ride. Also come out and see us at some of the local shows. We attend Addison County Farm & Field Days and Champlain Valley Fair yearly.
