Grey Mare
Enjoying pasture time in the fall at Windholme is a pleasure for the mares.

Windholme is very proud of its many top-quality Dutch, Saddlebred and Arabian mares. The Farm is firmly committed to breeding only the best stock and realizes the contributions that exceptional mares bring to the breeding equation. For this reason, Windholme owners and staff have carefully assembled a mare band with the genetic strengths to produce offspring with conformations capable of the demands of today's show ring, and the heart and will to "get out there and do it!"

Among the Farm's Arabian mares are bloodlines tracing to Wisdom, Hucklebey Berry, Aploz, Aladdinn, El Ghazi, Bask, & Medallion. Bloodlines of the Saddlebred mares include Wing Commander and Supreme Sultan. Windholme's Dutch Harness mares are descendants of historically renowned Dutch horses including Renovo and Immigrant, as well as highly regarded DHH stallions such as Majesteit, Fabricius, Fortissimo, Patijn, and of course, Horal.

Pasture Mares
Mares and babies

 

Windholme Farm’s Dutch Harness Horse mares and foals share an idyllic life. They grace the farm’s 238 acres, and doze in the sun or practice their animated trots, in what is, arguably, one of the prettiest places in America.

Sharing pastures in mare and foal combinations helps the youngsters mentally, as they adjust  to their places in the herd hierarchy. This translates to an easier transition when they are weaned and brought in for handling and later, for training.
