About Parkheath Stud

Stacks Image 54
Sue created Parkheath Stud in 1995. The whole family are Paint Horse enthusiasts.

We were lucky with our first attempt to breed a Paint. In May 1995 we bred our TB Mare to an Imported American Paint Stallion; Sonny Steele. The result was a Sorrell Overo Mare who we named TAOME, short for The Apple Of My Eye.

Since then we have gone from strength to strength. We have continued to improve our stock through a combination of buying and breeding our own.

Our Champion Stallion, "Whata Smoke" who we imported from Sweden having achieved all the major Paint accolades in the UK was sold and exported back to new owners in Sweden - sadly he passed away a few years ago.

As well as starting the Stud we help found the UK Paint Horse Association (UK PHA). In November 2001 The American Paint Horse Association (APHA) granted the UK PHA their Charter and this is now their formal Club in the UK.

Sadly Parkheath Taome, my favourite mare, was put to sleep on 21 December 2010 due to losing her fight with irreversible Neurological brain damage ............ Home-bred by me in 1996, she was very special. R .I.P.
