Horse Retirement Farm Serving Massachusetts
Horses have a rich history in the Bay State, dating back as far as 1789 when “Figure,” a sturdy little bay colt, was born in West Springfield, Massachusetts. This powerful little horse would later become known by his new owner’s name, Justin Morgan, and go on to become the foundation sire for the Morgan horse.
The little bay stallion outran and outworked any horse that was brought against him and in a parade in 1817 President James Monroe rode his back. After a full and accomplished life the gallant little horse died at the age of 32 in 1821.
There are very few Massachusetts horse owners who have the privilege of owning such an accomplished horse as “Figure”, still every horse deserves the best of care. Owning a horse approaching retirement age can be a heavy responsibility, that is where Willow Tree Acres can help.
Willow Tree Acres is a full-care retirement facility for horses in picturesque Manheim, PA. We are currently accepting applications for horses from the Bay State.
