White Tail Farm is situated on 100+ acres in Charles County Maryland- Southern Maryland’s Amish country- the southern tip of the state just 40 miles South of Washington, DC and 48 miles north of Fredericksburg, VA. We chose the farm name after the abundance of White Tail deer on the property.
Purchased in 1981, our primary agricultural effort then was Maryland Type 32 Tobaccco – raising upwards of 90 acres of tobacco – all done by hand. The tobacco barns used to air-cure tobacco are still standing on our farm today as do the thousands of hand-sharpened tobacco sticks used for spearing and hanging the tobacco in the barns.
In addition to tobacco, we raised hogs, sheep and cattle – in that order and always in large numbers. We’ve also bred Chocolate Labradors, raised our children in 4H and owned and showed big horses. As 3rd generation farmers, we are certainly no stranger to hard work, long hours, or owning up to the responsibilities of caring for livestock - always in large numbers; and the miniature horses are no exception (other than we’re a lot older now).
ventured into the Miniature Horses in December of 2007. It was at
that time that a partnership for the miniature horse breeding business
formed between Marlene & Holly who are Mother / Daughter-in-law.
We’re the first to admit we couldn’t operate this breeding business
without the tremendous support and understanding of our wonderful
husbands. It helps that both families live on the farm which also
adds the wonderful benefit of having grandchildren involved on a daily
basis. Nothing better for the soul than children and miniature
Thanks to all the breeders (now dear friends) who have helped us put the best breeding program together. You can view these amazing people on our links page – we cherish all these new friends and mentors!
When we established this miniature breeding program, we had searched some well known farms that had been successful for 25+ years (now we can say 30+ years). We kept coming back to the most famously recognized stallion, Boones Little Buckeroo (Buckeroo) owned by Little King Farm (LKF). We decided initially to gear our program around a well known bloodline and successful progeny and hope to offer the same champion bloodlines, and more importantly, the quality on this side of the country.
While we do have other nationally recognized champion bloodlines in our horses to compliment the select breeding pairs, we primarily focus on Buckeroo. We currently have 3 Buckeroo sons and 2 Buckeroo daughters as well as dozens (and dozens) of Buckeroo grand-get. We also have a BTU son, a Double Destiny son, and the first stallion we purchased is a grandson of both Buckeroo and L&D Scout. We then purchased two Billy Idol sons as an outcross and more recently an L&D Scout son as an outcross. These nationally recognized champion lines are known to be an amazingly successful cross with Buckeroo. We’re anxiously awaiting 2012 to see the resulting foals from these crosses. As of 2012 we have amassed 100 AMHA/AMHR horses in our program not counting the current foal crop. 2012 is our 5th foaling season and we think the very best foals are hitting the ground this year as we’ve tweaked our program and our breeding pairs.
Without a doubt, Buckeroo is the most well-known miniature stallion in the world today. He holds the unequaled record of winning three National Grand Champion Senior Stallion Titles.
