At the heart of Town and Country Farms, we are a thoroughbred breeding operation. All of our broodmares receive custom, individualized attention that caters to their specific needs. All horses are fed separately to ensure each horse has the specific grain mixture they require. We spend extra hands-on time with each foal to create the best possible environment to develop, grow, and flourish. These are just some of the special touches that Town and Country Farms provide our horses to help them develop into champions. Please take a moment to view our current broodmare stock below.
