“Horses – if God made anything more beautiful, he kept it for himself” Author Unknown Owner/Manager Robin Broughton, a long-time equestrian, had a dream of a paradise type of place for horses – a place where they could run, jump, sleep in tall grasses under the stars, and live out their retirement years in peace, harmony and with others of their kind. Such a place is My Epiphany Paradise Farm.
My Epiphany Paradise Farm encompasses over 200 acres of rolling hills, tall grass, woods, creeks and ponds. With cross fencing and rotational grazing, a maximum of 53 horses will be accepted, with separation of herds based on personalities. Automatic waterers exist in many of the pastures, along with fresh water from creeks and ponds, and shelters from the elements are available should the horse decide to use them. Winters are milder than many states, with an average daily temperature in the low 30’s, and the summer months hold steady around average temperatures of high 80’s to low 90’s. We welcome you to give us a call, let us share with you our story and what we can do for your retired horse.
All of Robin’s life has centered around her passion for horses – since the age of 4 she has had reins in her hands and the smell of horses in her nostrils. An avid rider and competitor, Robin also owns a small, boutique, rehabilitation and lay-up barn in Wadsworth, Illinos – My Epiphany Stables – where she specializes in bringing client’s horses back from injuries, mental breakdowns, or horses that are just worn out from their busy show schedule. It was Robin’s clients at her Illinois barn that gave her the idea for opening the Missouri property, My Epiphany Paradise Farm. For those horses that may not be able to come back from an injury or had reached the time in their lives where they had given it their all, they now needed a place to retire gracefully and lounge around in the great outdoors. And it needed to be affordable and not break the bank of the owner! This was the ideal place – a paradise for horses.
It was Robin’s parents love for all things horses that drove her passion for them. Celebrating 57 years of marriage in 2017, this country duo, takes care of their 200 acre property; managing horses, growing and cutting hay, and making sure all of the retirees are fat and happy! Farming and ranching has been a way of life for both of them and they are excited to have transitioned their property into a haven for retired horses, offering them the same great care they have given to their own herds over the years!
