Shannondale’s expertise is available to outside stallion collection and shipping, as well as stallion training, semen collection, and freezing in accordance with Dr. Fayhrer-Hoskins, DVM, the University of Georgia's reproduction specialist, and his team.
Standing at Shannondale Farm is Sure Hit, a bay, 16.2-hand, imported 2000 Oldenburg stallion by Sandro Hit who has shown successfully through Prix St. Georges and now schooling Grand Prix with his owner/rider/trainer, Julie Shannon. Ardceltic Art, an imported Connemara dappled gray, 15-hand, approved Weser-Ems, stallion is also standing at Shannondale for owner/rider Donna Miller, who successfully competes him in eventing. Both stallions are known for their outstanding character, amateur-friendly temperaments, and natural talent under saddle. Their quality is represented in their foals.
