The Olde Ransom Farm

Registered Austrian Haflingers

Early in our retirement, we decided to purchase a team of driving horses.  We did some research and after considering other breeds, we concluded that Austrian Haflingers were the right choice.  Haflingers are spectacularly beautiful, have a wonderful disposition, and are great with young children.  These charming animals have truly captivated us with their gentle ways around our grandchildren.

Marvelous & Missels


After getting to know Marvelous and Missels, our gelded team of Haflingers, we purchased a beautiful mare and began a breeding program.  Ruffian is from the champion bloodlines of Michelob NTF and Ruffles NTF and we are now producing an excellent line of foals.

On April 25, 2006 A King's Ransom ORF was born at The Olde Ransom Farm. Sired by Aristique TOF, King is our latest pride and joy.  His championship lines are already evident and is a spirited colt.  King will be available for sale after September 2006.

At six months old, King is a smart and playful colt.  Like any young boy, he loves to play ball.  He is pictured on the left during one of our soccer games.  As you can see he is so happy that he is floating on air!

When horses fly!  

2005 brought us Narragansett Nick ORF. Sired by Notable NTF, Nick is a beautiful happy colt with all the attributes of his champion lineage.  Nick was sold in early 2006 and is now living at a wonderful historic farm right here in Salem, Connecticut.
