What’s new on the horizon? Soaring Eagle Farms recently acquired some of the finest Shire genetics available. A British breed of draught horse, Shires are known for their height and strength. In November 2016, we imported several horses from the United Kingdom. Two of those horses are Shire stallions sired by the late, great stallion Hamlet, which was owned by Paul and Mathew Bedford of Thorpe Hill Farm. We thank the Bedfords for allowing us to import these fine, modern Shires, which launched our program to an impressive start in 2017. We also added some mares to our breeding program and look forward to their future offspring.
