Our sweet Ellie is Brabant Draft Horse. She was foaled in 2006. Her kind and gentle demeanor makes her wonderful with children and a great horse for carriage and wagon rides. 

Barney is a Belgian Draft Horse. He was foaled in 2000. With his strong muscles and determination, he is a work horse through and through.  Barney loves to help out Ellie on the wagon and skid logs!
