Hollymead Farm, established in 2005, is located in the foothills region of North Carolina. The climate and rolling hills are ideal for riding and raising young horses. We are always happy to have visitors. Please contact us for directions if you are in the area and would like to stop by.
Our horses are maintained on pasture as much as possible. The fields are soil tested, fertilized and overseeded on a regular basis to provide a healthy natural grass diet for the mares and foals. We supplement the pasture with a high quality mineral supplement to meet nutritional needs. Natural diet, combined with the physical conditioning the hills provide, give our foals a good start in life.
We are dedicated to breeding safe, sane and sound Irish Draught horses and Connemara ponies. Our mares are from performance bloodlines and serve as family riding horses and broodmares. They are quiet to handle and easily ridden by novice riders, yet possess the athleticism to participate in a variety of disciplines.
We have some lovely young Connemaras for sale. Please visit our young stock page to see pictures and learn more about them. Shown here is Hollymead Swan Bay. She is a purebred filly by our stallion, Loughrea's Seamus, out of Gately's Red Robin. She has recently been sold to Che Hetherington, a Connemara breeder in Perth, Australia.
Inspected and approved 15:3 hand Irish Draught mare, Lionwood Rowan de la Mer RID, is for sale to the perfect home. Rowan is an exceptional mover from performance bloodlines. Please visit our "Mature Stock for Sale" page for more information or contact us.
Lionwood Rowan de la Mer RID gave birth to a lovely colt foal on March 11, 2014. Seamus is the proud sire. We are naming the colt Irish Brew and will call him "Brewster". Brewster is already turning grey like his dam. He will be offered for sale. Please contact us if you are interested in him. You can see more pictures of Brewster on the Foals and Young Stock page.
