Welcome to Coach Stop Farm's Percheron page!
We breed, raise, sell, train, and use Percheron horses
on our farm. Using draft-horse power, we farm a little over 50 acres
outside of Zeeland, Michigan. Pastures, grain crops,
and hay are managed without chemicals for weed or insect control. We
find that Mother Nature, properly balanced, takes care of "bad bugs" by
providing "good bugs" to dine on them. Likewise, weeds are discouraged
by periodic plantings of cover crops which feed soil and enhance future

Our new herd sire, Elliot's Jock
Jock stands a little over 18HH. He was Senior Champion
stallion at the Illinois state fair as a 4-year old (his former owners
shared a photo of him from that event. Here are a few photos we took
after his arrival on our farm in April of 2007. You can see what a calm
personality he is when you look at the photo of our friend, Eric with
his two-year-old son getting to know Jock.
