World Class Hanoverians - Bred in the USA

     Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to learn more about our Hanoverians.

     Our Hanoverian  Masterpieces of Breeding Program results from years of experience and extensive searching for Hanoverian broodmares that produce warmblood foals with outstanding conformation and performance potential.  Exceptional Hanoverian broodmares are one of the foundation of breeding success.

     The foundation Hanoverian mares selected for our original program came from Germany. These Hanoverian mares achieved the highest breed ranking of US Elite Mare (EM) or German States Premium Mare (SPS/SPA) - achieving scores in the very top percentile of this coveted ranking. 

    As part of our downsizing for an easier retirement, we selected two fillies out of EM Aluette (EMC Lucette and Winnifer) from the past decade of breeding to continue our  select breeding program.  Please review the outstanding Dam Line of these mares on the Dam Line page.

     Like the famed small Hanoverian horse breeders of Germany, we use excellent quality mares with approval and/or performance records combined with a family bloodline history of consistently producing high quality offspring for generations.  Many leading breeders feel that the mare accounts for well over half of the resulting characteristics forTtemperament, conformation and talent  ...  since each is critically tied to the mare's genetic structure, a structure she passes from generation to generation. rThe mare's pivotal role in  breeding is a crucial element  of a successful breeding program.

     Our foals now rival the quality of the very best foals of Germany.  World class foals that are born and raised right here in  the USA and handled daily ... making it easier and less costly for the new owner to consider, vet, and safely transport. 

     Our valued clients come to us from throughout the country -- Connecticut, New York, Virginia, Michigan, Tennessee,  Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado,  Arizona,  Washington, California and Oregon.

   Eventually, we will relocate from Oregon to the Mid-Atlantic area.  As part of this change, we are selling our Oregon farm, but we will still enjoy the Oregon coast now and then.  For detailed sales information on the farm visit  or email .

     We hope that your visit to our website will perhaps help you form your own partnership of a lifetime with one of our Masterpieces of Breeding.

Enjoy the foals,

Dale and Jo Ann Thomas
