Starting with a pair of ponies in 1969, Lynn gradually improved both his horsemanship, and his stock. Graduating to saddle horses through his teenage years, he has since moved on to registered Belgian draft horses.
Windy Hill Farms has now been involved with the Belgian draft horse breed for more than10 years. WHF is the prefix for our breeding program and is becoming recognized at many of the draft horse sales we consign to.
Our mares (and stallions) work to earn their keep. They haul all the manure, as much as 150 loads per year, as well as plowing, discing, raking hay, hauling firewood, and feeding cows in the winter. This summer we also bought a horse drawn cultivator to use in our produce patches.
Because of the work our horses do on our farm, we are able to designate ourselves as a “mixed power” farm. Combining the work ethic, equipment, and methods from yesteryear with the research and technology of today we hope to set an example in common sense sustainability.
What began as a homeschool project in 1993 has evolved into a small dog breeding business. Red, our red colored male, is a working cattle dog here on the farm. You will often see him helping herd the cattle, sheep and horses on a regular basis. Lydia & Lady are our new female pups and are cattle dogs in training. Lydia is a blue merle and Lady is a black tri.
