Welcome to Azariah Miniatures and Meadowind Farm

Azariah Miniatures at Meadowind Farm specializes in breeding and showing correct and colorful miniature horses.  We carefully select our horses for their conformation, presence, temperament and outstanding movement.  We truly believe that to strengthen and improve the breed, only horses with natural outstanding qualities should be included in our breeding program.  A miniature horse should look like a miniature horse, correct, refined and well proportioned with correct legs, deep reaching hock action, a strong, level top line, good shoulder angle, and a lovely, short head with large soft eyes.  Our mares and stallions are matched to accentuate their strengths and compliment each other.   Our goal is to raise miniature horses that will strengthen your breeding program, exhibit qualities that will shine in the show ring and have a temperament that is pleasant to work with.

Meadowind Farm offers a personalized boarding facility with a custom feed program and carefully matched group or individual turnout.  Although we are not discipline or breed specific, we feel that a carefully matched horse/rider team is the basis for creating harmony in the partnership.  A horse ridden and shown in the discipline that is most suitable to its personality and conformation will ultimately be the foundation for success.

Our facility includes a 100 X 200 lighted, black sand arena, a 60’ roundpen, lush green pastures and dry lots, many with shelters.  Our bank barn, circa 1860’s, has 9 boxstalls of various sizes, 11X14 to 11X10.  We also have a 5 stall mini barn.

We encourage you to explore our website and contact us.  We enjoy getting to know and working with those who share our passion.  Let us help you find your special equine partner.

“And Indeed, a horse who bears himself proudly is a thing of such beauty and astonishment that attracts the eyes of all beholders; no one will tire of looking at him as long as he will display himself in his splendor.” ~~Xenophon

AMHA Reserve World Champion 2 yo Colts 29 and Under (Open) has begun to prove himself in the breeding shed as well as the show ring! We are excited for the foals that he has given us so far and look forward to what 2015 will bring.  He has proven to produce lovely  refined foals with the potential to enter the show ring in halter AND performance.  Each one has been correct and they have beautiful fluid movement.

Azariahs Be Ye Glad

Bea is expecting her first foal in late April 2015.  Bea is the elegant daughter of Reflections Beyond Stardom and out of Azariahs Galadriel.  I have been looking forward to crossing one of Beyond’s fillies with Eagle, this will be our first foal of this cross and I am eager to meet this foal.  It will be black based and time will tell if it will be pinto or solid.

“Jenny Craig” (LOL ~ yes, that is really what we call her) has some of the most beautiful foals I have ever seen.  A silver bay, her color genetics are interesting.  She is Ee (she black based but carries the red gene) AA (homozygous for agouti – hidden in a red based foal but show as bay in a black based) and ZZ (homozygous for silver -hidden in a red based foal but expressed in black based) So this foal will be a surprise color… always fun to wonder.  This will be her first foal by Eagle and we can hardly wait!  She is due in mid May of 2015.

Anticipated Foals for 2017 By Bear Branch Wind River Feather

WindRiverCover

Bear Branch Wind River Feather (The Sire)

Not often do you find a stallion as talented and sweet as our beloved River.  Not only is he beautiful, his movement is incredible, he wants to please and he passes all of this on to his foals.  We were fortunate to have a lovely 2014 filly that we have retained in our breeding program and several outstanding colts in 2015 that promise to be talented driving horses.  We will have no foals by River during the 2016/17 seasons but look forward to welcoming him back in 2017 to allow him to reunite with several of our top mares.   River is sired by the Legendary Stonehenge Painted Feather.

Azariahs Tiger Lily

She is by Ten Ls Tiger Legacy out of Ten Ls Splendors Sapphires and Lace.  She is a gorgeous blood bay with big, bold, fluid movement.  Lily was AMHA World Top Ten in Classic Pleasure Driving and Pennsylvania State 4 H Champion Miniature Horse Driving with Junior Driver.  She has had a successful halter career as well and we now anticipate great things as she begins her new career as a broodmare.
