It is with great sadness....

FEBRUARY 24th 2016



In the early morning hours of February 24th 2016 Classic City Clydesdales was involved in a catastrophic barn fire during a lightning storm which completely devestated our facility.  We were awoken at approximately 1:45am to what can only be described as a bomb exploding next to the Lodge where we are staying on the farm. Smelling smoke we immediately began assessing our home only to discover a small fire on the exterior which was quickly extinguished. It was at this time the dogs began fussing at the front door and I saw fire erupting from the roof of the horse barn. Macon, Austin and myself jumped in our ATV's and  rushed to the barn only to find a heavy curtain of smoke and no electricity to open the heavy barn doors. As I ran down the aisle opening horse stalls and forcing horses into the aisle I began panicking over how to safely evacuate horses through the office I heard a loud crash and a call from my son Macon. He had rammed his ATV through the barn door allowing an exit for the horses.




Although we were extremely fortunate to be able to evacuate all 16 Clydesdale horses from the barn, the structure itself is a total loss. We will be unable to continue offering farm tours, trail rides and lessons until further notice. 

We are devestated to have lost two mother Jacob sheep and two brand new babies by their side. We also mourn the loss of Boofy our beloved farm dog and our 4 dynamic barn kitties. We pray that they know how much they meant to us and may they rest in peace.





Our dear friend Paige Vaden initiated a GoFundMe page to help with immediate needs such as hay, halters, lead ropes and soaps so we can continue to care for the 50 Clydesdale horses without interruption. We've been so grateful for the outpouring of love and kindness from not only close friends and family but also horse lovers from around the world. We are humbled and honored that our big horses have so much support. We just hope that we can repay each and every kindness in turn.  We also would like to thank the qualified and quick actions of the local fire responders. This blaze was the biggest I've personally ever encountered and it takes brave souls to do their job. You forever have our gratitude.




To the countless volunteers who have stopped by with donations of supplies and their time, THANK YOU! We are forever in your debt. 

To my son Macon who at 16 had the most level head of all of us and broke down the overhead doors to allow us to evacuate every horse in the barn safely. We love you and we are so proud of you!

If you want to make a contribution to the ongoing care and support of Classic City Clydesdales our GOFUNDME will stay open until we are functioning normally and have basic systems in place. Our current priority is setting up temporary stalling, bathing soot and mud from horses and attending to superficial burns and wound care. We also have to start back to a regular routine with minimal facilities. We are working on a volunteer schedule so stay tune for updates. Thanks again already for the continuous support. We are ever grateful.

WELCOME TO CLASSIC CITY FARMS

A QUICK DISCLAIMER:
Classic City Clydesdales is a family owned and operated breeding facility where the primary focus is breeding top quality Clydesdale horses for work and show.  We have invested not only the time in researching, but also the copious funds necessary to institute an impeccable breeding foundation.  We are not a "production breeder!"  We do not breed to inundate the market with un-saleable horses.  We do have "occasionally" a horse that can be placed inexpensively due to old age or physical limitations.  But, keep in mind when you shop with us "bargains" are not our forte.  Also, we do not AND will not sell horses to inner city carriage companies that don't have the means or know how to care for one of our animals. If you do not have the interest in learning everything there is to know about taking care of a Clydesdale horse and making them a member of your family then we are not your supplier.   We have had our fair share of "repairing broken minds and spirits" and take in rescue Clydesdales on a case by case basis.  Please visit our 501 non-profit charity AromaForRescue for more information on how we mend broken minds and bodies.  SM

 Our dream started in 1998 with the purchase "at sale" of a Clydesdale stud colt named Sampson.  Having grown up with Quarter Horses and Paint Horses this exquisite, majestic creature was amazing to the eye and soft on the heart.  We fell in love with this noble breed immediately.  It is our sincerest hope to improve the quality, longevity and hardiness of the Clydesdale horse,  through well planned breedings and careful stewardship. We have searched all over Canada, the US and Scotland for our foundation animals.  In our opinion have acquired some of the best blood lines available.

It is a "family affair" at Classic City Clydesdales.  Shannon Martin oversees the day to day operations on the farm alongside Mark Martin, and Felipe Tenorio.  Each team member plays their part and brings to the farm a unique set of skills and ideas.  


Felipe is indeed our "horse whisperer!"  Felipe has a natural love of our horses and works daily with our foals, yearlings and young stock.  When they leave our farm they are sociable, well handled and truly enjoy their human experiences.  He is quiet and solid and we are lucky to have him here on the farm.

BREEDING....


At Classic City Clydesdales we have four breeding stallions, Bogton Barnaby,  Zorra Highland Captain, 2S Barnaby's Collossal Latch and Weber's BJ Levi Lady.  Each stallion is a genetic powerhouse with strengths that enhance each of our mares.  Our boys pass on temperament, feet, hair and beautiful toplines as well as monster front ends.  Each of our mares have been carefully researched for breeding soundness as well as show potential in their own right and each mare is carefully matched to our stallions to enhance their fine qualities.

Here at Classic City it is our utmost wish to improve the breed by selecting impeccable mares and then improving them by way of the stallion.  A mare at Classic City is treated as the Rock Star she is.  They receive the best feed, best care and best housing money can buy.  We've often been told that people wish "they" were a Classic City Clyde!   Our mares are our foundation; without them, there would be no "US!"

Our horses show in hand, in harness and under saddle.  The Clydesdale horse is a very versatile breed that can excel in many different disciplines from Western to English and even Dressage.  Of course each horse is an individual and suited to each discipline as he/she is put together.  When showing we try to take each horses attributes into consideration and select events that will showcase their individual talents.  We start evaluating each horse from birth based on conformation, temperament and movement.

OUR TARA...

Classic City Farms is situated on 187 Acres of pristine North GA hill country just outside of Athens, GA.  It is a mix of pasture land and wooded trails with a fully stocked 3 Acre pond and 1/2 mile on the Apalachee River Shoals.  It is truly a horseman's dream and we are lucky to call it home.  

Classic City Farms has a brand new, state of the art, fully functional breeding barn with 18 14x14 regular box stalls, 4 14x20 brood boxes, a hot/cold wash rack, multiple turn out pastures and 6 miles of riding/driving trails.  We are contemplating opening up 6 stalls in the lower barn for select boarders of the Draft Horse persuasion.  If you are interested in a truly unique boarding experience, please contact us at your convenience.  SM
