Around the Farm
Check out our
Creek Farm, just outside Lexington, KY, is the result of a lifelong
passion for horse care by the husband wife team of Debra and Giles
Instone. Converted in 2004 from a top thoroughbred facility to high
performance paints, the 62 acre farm represents years of equine
experience and the Instone’s unparalleled attention to detail.
Nestled in the charming town of Midway, Kentucky, Mill Creek Farm is
almost completely surrounded by the soothing waters of Elk Horn
Creek. The historic Weisenberger Mill borders the edge of one of the
farm’s 2 main pastures with the picture– perfect setting attracting
a large array of wildlife. Under Debra’s ever-vigilant eyes, the
farm has blossomed into a first class breeding and selling ground
for high performance paints. All pastures, including 5 one-acre
parcels have been re-seeded, re-fenced and the 12-stall barn has
been upgraded. The latest addition is a brand-new 50 ft. round pen.
Debra’s proven producers are bred to leading stallions, always with
an eye towards show ring success. Every year, Mill Creek offers up
its entire foal crop for sale. Pampered from birth, Mill Creek foals
receive nothing but the best. A vitamin-rich
feeding program is coupled with constant handling from the moment
the foals stand and nurse. Feet are trimmed once a month and top
notch farrier and veterinary care is a regular part of the program.
The results of this intense program of TLC speak for themselves.
