Paradise Morgans aimed to produce classic Morgan type with keen attention to pedigree details. Those goals have been brought to life by Canon who is just beginning his breeding career; his first colt and filly, out of very different mares, are representation of the mark he’s going to make upon the breed. The only foal out of the renowned park harness mare, Pastorale and by the incomparable UVM Springfield, Canon is a horse for the ages.

Townshend Rob The Wave

A best-kept secret is on lease to Miner Institute from Nancy Caisse’s farm in Bolton, MA. “Robbie” is by one of the nation’s top sires, Tug Hill Whamunition and out of a Townshend Farm foundation-bred mare. A beautiful bay stallion, Robbie shows us every day that pretty-is as pretty-does. He is solid in his work ethic and easy to be around in the barn. Shown by Townshend Farm as a successful hunter pleasure horse in his junior years, as a carriage horse with Nancy, and in open competition at the county fair with students up in 2012, Robbie is ready to make his mark in the breeding shed! We’re very excited to see the first foals of this fine example of Morgan versatility and temperament arrive in 2013.

Stallion Station

We can train your stallion to the phantom mount, collect semen, evaluate it, and ship it to contracted mare owners. Stabling available for the breeding season or on an as-needed basis. Semen freezing is also available.

Mare Station

Working closely with our veterinarian, the stallion manager, and mare owner, we’ll coordinate all the parties involved to get the mare bred at the right time. All pre- and post-breeding management and care is done right here to hopefully send mares home safely in foal.

Horse Training

Helping horse owners start their horses right is the goal of our training program. Specializing in establishing a solid foundation of the basics, we’ve worked with many breeds and launched horses’ careers in a number of disciplines. Owners are involved in much of the training process, from evaluation of goals to learning to work together with their horse.
