Welcome to LilyWing! A small family run farm where our dreams are coming true! Horses, dogs and country life, does it get better?!
LilyWing is home to our small herd of Irish Draught horses; 4 Labrador Retrievers Chuck, Molly, Judith and Chili (the trio is complete...one chocolate, one black and a yellow...well 2 yellows for good measure!); two cats, J.C. and Fat Jack!
Nichole is a Registered Veterinary Technologist (RVT) working in a variety of roles in the Alberta veterinary community including as an educator, completing project work and as a practicing RVT in a local mixed animal veterinary practice and has a history of volunteerism supporting animal health through the veterinary community. LilyWing Farm is her next adventure with the support of her family, Rob, Ryan and Megan!
Predominantly a recreational rider and dog owner, Nichole enjoys seeing other succeed with their horses and dogs! That is one of the two guiding goals behind LilyWing's breeding plans...supporting and encouraging others. The second, is to contribute to the purebred Irish Draught and Lab population, consistent with breed standards. We value outside and objective judgement on our stock to help us make sound decisions for the long term. Rowan, is a registered and inspected (by the Irish Draught Society of North America) Irish Draught mare and Molly, who achieved her CKC Championship (predominantly owner handled, I might add!) are our foundation stock. Cait and Missy are scheduled for inspection in 2019. We are SO excited for their future progeny!
We hope to help other people live their best life with one (or more?!) four legged LilyWing partners. Tour around, and when you have questions, please drop us a line or plan a visit.
