First Boy of the 2015 season!

 

Benchfield Farms is located in Cumberland County in South Central Pennsylvania. We live outside the small town of Newville, which is located between Shippensburg and Carlisle.

Linda, Leroy, daughter Meg and son-in-law Scott, work with their Spotted Draft Horses for the purpose of showing, exhibitions, and giving rides at special events: parades, weddings, re-enactments, fairs, and birthday parties.

Benchfield Farms is now standing a stallion a registered Premium North American Spotted Draft Horse Stallion. The stallion is black and white tobiano NASDHA registered and is homozygous for the tobiano gene.  Has a great personality and wonderful disposition. Produces Up headed, hitch style horses and that are easy to handle. Not only will a Benchfield Farms stallion add color to your draft horse breeding program, but they can contribute positively to a heavy hunter, jumper or eventing cross and guarantee color also! Please contact Benchfield Farms for more details on breeding to this stallion and how he can compliment your breeding program.

The Bunnings and Meg are life members of NASDHA (North American Spotted Draft Horse Association). Benchfield Farms Spotted Draft Horses are shown throughout the years in various states.
