HISTORY - Where We Came From
This section of our website is dedicated to the horses who still influence our breeding program today. Some have since passed, others continue to be dominant breeding stock, but all of them have earned a spot in the history of our farm and the history of the breed. You can click on any one of the photos below as they scroll by and it will expand to reveal a larger photo and the story of that horse.

Our good friend Reuben Dourte of Windward Media Group did a great job of condensing 50 years of the history of Windermere Farms into an article for Triple H Magazine. Click on the image below to download the entire 10 page PDF.
Windermere Farms has become well known for producing powerful, dominant breeding stallions who pass on their extreme traits with consistency. Included on this page are some of those individuals who helped give us that reputation. Our success in the stallion service market is largely due to Blackhome Duke who was a pioneer in the shipping of draft horse semen.
Windermere Farms was established in the 1960's by Abraham Allebach. We had many successful halter horses since the farm's conception. Although she was not our first Percheron mare, the history on this page begins with Camille as she was the beginning of the breeding program we still carry on today.
