Six Pound Farm Is...
a small sporthorse breeding program, newly re-located from Wisconsin to South Eastern Virginia.
Owned & operated by Tracy Geller- Stearns & Grant Stearns.
We strive to produce better horses with each generation; aiming to breed correct, sound, athletic, intelligent,willing, attractive, and above all FUN to ride horses.
Our breeding focus is quality driven, and to ensure that our foals and young stock receive proper care ,nutrition and handling,
only a small number of foals are produced annually.
We are dedicated
to producing quality sport horses for all disciplines; whether their chosen purpose is as a professional’s Show Hunter or Jumper, Adult Amateur Dressage mount, trusted companion, or a future member of a breeding herd. To achieve this, our foundation stock of Broodmares has been carefully chosen, and their foals are proof of the quality of the bloodlines and sport potential.
We do offer a few select horses for sale each year, please feel free to browse our website to view them.
Inquiries, visits and questions are welcomed!
Quality care & handling
is vital to a good start in life for a performance prospect, and attention is paid to all vital details from conception to weaning, and beyond.
Our mares are monitored on a foaling camera as they get close to their due dates and afterward.
Our foals are interacted with from birth, and halter training begins within the first few weeks.
By weaning, the foals are well-handled and look for interaction and attention from people. They have had experiences in loading, clipping, bathing, grooming and have regular hoof trimming to aid in the proper development of their legs and feet.
Our horses that are going under saddle are carefully monitored for health and soundness. They are treated and managed as top level performance horses, as that is our aspiration for them.
We strive to select riders and trainers that will carefully and thoughtfully bring along our horses in work; not only providing them the appropriate foundation, but also challenging them to develop to their fullest potential.
Proper Nutrition & Stabling
Additionally, all of our mares and young horses are on an individualized feeding program tailored to their own particular needs and condition.
We feed Buckeye Nutrition brand feeds, as well as an excellent quality grass hay, free choice when fresh pasture is not available.
Our horses are on pasture as weather permits. They all receive regular de-worming , vaccinations as needed, annual dental care and
regular farrier attention.
Our horses are kept in as natural of an environment as possible.
Their mental well being is just as important as the physical. They are allowed to be horses, and spend as much time as possible outside in their small, ‘herd’ environment. They have well fenced, safe enclosures with access to sheds, and are put up in stalls when weather mandates it.
