Shire mare, born 2011. We first met Maggie at our local agricultural fair in 2014, where she formed part of a 4-up hitch, along with Annie, Button and Belle. When the owner of these beautiful mares decided to retire in 2021, we were happily humbled to be entrusted with their long-term care! Maggie is an extremely sweet-natured girl, often the first at the fence line to say good morning or enjoy a loving pat. We are looking forward to getting to know her better, and readying her for work as a single carriage horse. We are also learning how to care for her long, luscious forlock, mane and tail!
Maggie is a registered bay Shire mare from Alberta. Lariviere Johnny’s Girl Maggie was raised here in BC by Keith Taylor (Taylor Farms), along with her well-matched teammate, Annie.
The Shire horse is listed on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust list as a species vulnerable to extinction. In 2016 there were fewer than 1,500 registered worldwide.
