When we began the task of selecting new horses for our breeding program at Hawkhill Miniatures/ Shetlands, we went in search of miniatures that were refined, had excellent conformation, a mix of new and old bloodlines, were of show quality. This included some that already had success in the show ring or we considered terrific show halter or driving prospects. To this we have introduced shetlands from top breeding lines to improve the herd.
We started our mini show horse selection with Ravenwood Chasin Dreams after the 2011 World Show. I came back to the 2013 Worlds looking for stallions. How lucky could we be to have SRF Premier a 7 X World Champion and 2 X Res. World Grand Champion join our breeding program. With this outstanding stallion, we felt we had perfect sire for our new miniature broodmare band. As well, we were very blessed to be allowed to breed several of our mares to Oak Bay Salsa Redefined and First Knight More Than Redi (owned by Whispering Hill Miniatures Farm - Merv and Barb Mardian). To this herd, we have now added several Shetland /blended horses that are refined, of excellent conformation ,and terrific bloodlines. We are thrilled to own Vermilyea Farms Rock the Dice, again thanks to Merv and Barb Mardian.
We now have a number of top quality broodmares, some have been show horses, and have outstanding pedigrees that include top bloodlines and are top producers of horses today. As well, we added many new young show prospects, also with outstanding pedigrees, to enhance our breeding program well into the future. Together, it is expected that these broodmares will produce sound, refined and beautiful foals for the show ring, driving, and/or breeding programs.
Keep an eye on us for show prospects, breeding stock, or maybe just a companion pet. We know we can assist you with a horse that meets your needs. If you see something of interest, have any questions, or simply like talking about miniature horses, feel free to send an e-mail, or give us a call.
