Kiwi Shires - Southern Most Shire Horse Breeders In The World

Kiwi Shires Sport Horse Breeding Program

We have spent a considerable amount of time seeking out suitable light horse mares to add to our breeding herd.
These mares will enable us to breed top quality standout Shire Sport Horses.

We added two beaituful mares this last season to our herd and have another arriving in time for the coming breeding season. 

Check out our Marespage to have a look at what we have available.

**Kiwi Shires has a new home**

We moved to a new 26 acre property in late January. 
We are thoroughly enjoying having all our horses at home with us and not having to travel to a grazing block every day. 

We can now offer a foaling down service along with other horse breeding and grazing services, give us a ring to find out more.

Doogie took it all in his stride and no-one would have known it was his first time away from home.

When the horses were not in the show arena they were housed in a large marque and were a big part of the 
"Ol MacDonald's Farm Yard Display"
They even had a visit from Invercargill's very own Mayor Tim Shadbolt!

Here are a few more photos from our big day out.
