Northeast Shires, where the Shires roam

Welcome to
Northeast Shires!

The Possibilities Are Unlimited when superior genetics and advance technology come together

What We Do

Our goal is to produce top quality Shire horses utilizing the very best stock we can find. Many of the foals we put on the ground are the result of advance breeding technologies that allow us to use older mares that have reproductive problems but have superior genetics. We collect embryos from these mares that can't carry foals themselves and use recipient mares to serve as surrogate mothers for these foals.

Who We Are

Mike and Janet Long have been raising registered Shire horses for over 20 years. We started with a mother daughter team providing wagon rides at a local breakfast house.  Today we own 14 Shire mares, two Shire stallions and a handfull of recipient mares.  We take pride in our horses and hope those who purchase our babies will also take pride in them.

We have been showing Shires at American Shire Horse Association recogonized shows since 2001.

Today we partner with Charity O'Dell and Tom Greenlee of Greenlee Farms.

Come see the Shires at shows across the United States.
