Fainters North Hero, Vermont - (802) 372-3080 Dedicated
breeders of Colored Morgan Sporthorses, Labrador Retrievers & Rare
Tennessee Fainting Goats
Hill Farm is located in the Lake Champlain Island Region of Vermont, on
the small Island of North Hero. We are a 74+ acre farm that has
specialized in raising quality Old Style Morgan horses with a splash of
color, for 30+ years! We have incorporated some rare and hard to
find, old Govt'/Brunk lines. We discovered years ago, that these lines
produced Morgan horses that have breed type, bone, sound minds, correct
legs, hooves and great work ethics. They are what the breed is supposed
to be! Most of the stock we have left, have “No Modern Day Outcrosses"Some
of the old lines we have are: Fleetfield, Jubilee King, Flyhawk,
Senator Graham, Rimlo Black Pepper, Robbins Cotton Queen, Nightwatch,
Jubilee's Hey-Boy, Red Correll, Black Jig, Cute, Chingadero, Muchacha,
Ebony Baron, Major Cotton, Homeseeker, Ketchum, Tutor, Warhawk, Secora,
Speedking, Parka, Chief Justin Morgan, Miller's Pride, Sabra, The
Airacobra, Shine On, Mallow, etc. These are lines that have been listed as "Endangered" thru The Livestock Conservancy .
was the year we decided to cut back on our Morgan herd and breeding. We
still breed for an occasional foal, and can produce a foal for a
client, if they so wish.
Years ago we saw the writing on the
wall and took the necessary steps to try and save the old genetics by
freezing our stallions semen. Because of this, we have a rare supply of
Frozen Semen to return to and keep these old genetics going! On a rare
occasion, we may sell some of this frozen to a client.
none of this semen is qualified to leave the USA. If you ever have any
questions about Morgans, we love to chat about this wonderful breed!
Please give us a call or zip us off an email!
AKC Labrador Retrievers We
have been raising English type, AKC Labrador Retrievers for about 19
yrs. Our dogs help out on the farm, compete in agility trials, ride
around the farm on the equipment and beg for the front seat of the
Prowler or truck! Their favorite past time is sitting on the deck with
us enjoying the sunset and getting their much craved "People Time".
We produce at least one or two, quality litters per year. If you have
interest in one of these puppies, you will need to get on our waitlist.
We don't offer older puppies or our older dogs for sale. The puppies we
keep, become our older dogs. These older dogs, are family and they have
earned the right to stay with us until God calls them home. We take
great pride in producing healthy, happy puppies who become
wonderful family members! Most of these pups have the ability for
hunting, agility, obedience etc. All our puppies are sold with a 1 yr.
Health Warranty, Sale contract, 1st shots, health records, vet check,
regular worming, (from 2 weeks of age), copies of their parents
clearances/genetic testing and an AKC Limited registration (No
We have 2 Black & Yellow litters due!!! Most if
not all these puppies are spoken for but, please feel to check with us
if you have interest. WE may be having an all yellow litter that would
be due in early summer.
Our Herd is Free of CAE, CL & Johnnes - testing thru Cornell University
herd is now in its 8th year of the Federal Export Scrapie program! Our
current status is: "Monitored" with "Certified" looming somewhere in the
near future. As of August 2019, we are still waiting for the USDA to finish their paperwork. They are extremely slow.
OUR 1st, 2nd, 3rd. 4th & 5th, EXPORTS INTO CANADA HAVE BEEN COMPLETED!
This Herd is FOR SALE
to some serious changes in our lives, we are now motivated sellers and
are willing to make super deals to anyone wishing to start with a clean
herd or just purchase a goat or two. HUGE discounts or reasonable offers
will not be out of the question. This will be one of the hardest things
that we have ever done.
This herd, has taken years to build! As of December 2019, it is the ONLY MYOTONIC HERD in the world, to be entered into the Federal Export Scrapie Program and the only herd that qualifies to sell Does into Canada.
goats come in an array of colors and sizes. Most of the herd, carries
multiple Championship bloodlines and, that quality shines through!! The
majority of the herd is short haired. Some display skirting or
feathering and all, are either polled or disbudded. They live outside
24/7 with housing that they can go into whenever they want. All our
goats are vaccinated, wormed and hooves trimmed at least once per year.
This is a very hardy Northeastern bred herd!
We currently have a small group of 2018 does that would make an excellent starter herd. Most of these young does, if not already Moon spotted or blue eyed, may very well carry the genetics. They will be ready to breed for 2020 kids.
Please check out the 2019 kid page for photos & prices. Every kid is SUPER fancy this year! (Discounts given for 3 or more!)

This site is dedicated to the Fond
memory of my friend and Mentor, Dr. Lowell Hughes. (April
4, 1928- Nov. 5, 2001)
Dr. Hughes with his wonderful stallion, Patchett
Hill (Easter Vermont x Starlette B) Dr.
Hughes was the founder of Caduceus Morgans in North
Liberty, Iowa. He was known for producing large Black
Morgan Sporthorses of Mid-western and Brunk breeding.
He had a knack for finding well bred horses that were
tucked away on lost roads and in forgotten barns.
favorite stallion being the late, Wyoming Flyhawk (Domino
Joe x Lily Black), actually stood at Reed Allen's Ranch
in Lander Wy. along with my deceased foundation stallion,
H-Ken (Kenfield x Muchacha). I guess it was written,
even back then, that I would eventually meet Dr. Hughes.
Our taste in horseflesh were quite similar.
Hughes was a very kind and generous man who was always
willing to take a new comer under his wing. This is what
he did for me. I miss my friend and mentor. Words can
never describe how I feel or tell the depth of my loss.
I will take both the knowledge he gave, and the
horses he produced and carry on into an uncertain future
marked by his footsteps. God Bless until we meet again.............
