Ron and Edna Wood
Founders of Lakeiew Miniatures
We breed for the "small" horse. In an industry where many are introducing shetland bloodlines for tall horses we have remained true to Ron's vision. We produce the 34" and under miniature horse. With the different bloodlines we are able to produce a variaty of temperments and sizes ranging form 27" - 34" horses. Because of this we are able to provide horse that are manageable for youth, can be used in therapy work as well as National Champion Show contenders.
In 2015 Shauna and Adrian and the rest of the Lakeview Miniature family welcomed Kelton Ronald Holm into the world. The one and only grand child of Ron and Edna was found riding horses before he could walk. Two weeks after Kelton was born he was at his first horse show and at three months old he made the long trip to Tulsa, OK to attend his first AMHR National Horse Show! You will find him out in the horse barn daily with Shauna. His passion and love for the horses is contagious.
In 2016 Shauna and her husband, Adrian, expanded Lakeview Miniatures to a second farm in Swisher, IA. Lakeview II is set among 40 acres of timber and rolling hills. The show horses currently reside at this location. As barns are built some of Lakeviews breeding stock will expand to this second farm as well.
Lakeview Miniatures bloodlines include “Buckeroo”, L&D Scout, Bonds, Gold Melody, Mickey Mouse, and Double Dutch bloodlines. We are excited to have these well known and proven industry leaders in our barn! Our entire herd is double registered (AMHA and AMHR) and produces double registered offspring that are refined, classy, sound and correct.
Ron and Edna Wood started their horse business in 1970’s with both of their children – Clark and Shauna. The farm started out as a home for Quarter Horses and Belgium Draft horses. In 1993 the switch began from the large breeds to the purchase of our first three miniatures. Since 1993 Lakeview Miniatures has refined its herd to only the best in the Miniature horse industry. In April of 2009 Ron reduced his herd to only the top 12 Mares and 2 stallions. In March of 2010 it was Ron’s last wish that Edna and his son and daughter keep his herd in-tact and to keep the farm going as he lost his battle with cancer. Since then Clark and Shauna have stepped in and have not only kept the farm going but have added to the herd and introduced some amazing
bloodlines into the mix.
