Crooked Creek & Woodhaven Farms
Nancy Schmidt of Crooked Creek Farm & Kathleen Sulz of Woodhaven Farms have been successful partners in horses since 1989. Our horse breeding operation is located in southern Manitoba, Canada. We feel fortunate to live here and find that Manitoba is one of the best places in the world to raise horses. The climate enables us to grow our own high-quality hay and oats. Our pastures provide our youngsters with plenty of room to run and play throughout all seasons, ensuring a healthy growing environment.
If you are interested in purchasing a youngster and do not have a place to keep him/her until he/she is of training age, we are pleased to offer board at a very reasonable rate until they are ready to go for training.
