Mill Farm, Inc. is nestled in the Laurel Highlands
of Western Pennsylvania. Consisting of more than
500 acres and adjacent to miles of trail, it is
the perfect setting for an all around Equine Facility!
2001, Old Mill Farm founders and owners, Fred
and Rhonda Zeigler were walking through a popular
book store, when they stumbled upon a calendar
containing horses that could only be described
as something that one would dream about. From
this calendar they embarked upon a journey, of
research and development of two new breeds here
in the United States, The Gypsy Horse and The
Mill Farm's Mission as a Equine Facility
goal as a team is to breed and own some of the
best available stock in the country, a goal we
feel we have surpassed! We are focusing on quality
offspring and not quantity. All of our horses
bred and private have a purpose, they are not
just market horses !
The most important things in my life are
not things, they are my family and friends. Also I
love breeding and selling our horses. I feel our
work is not complete when a healthy foal is born.
But instead our responsibility of educating the
youngster begins. Talent is nothing without a
trainable attitude. We take great pride in producing
young stock that not only have great potential, but
are also a pleasure to own.
We hope you
enjoy browsing our site and please feel free to
contact us if you have any questions.

training focuses on natural methods, to ensure
