Hello, we are Bill and Dianne Poast, and we would like to welcome you to North Star Percherons and Northern Star Miniatures.
We live on a 747 acre farm, 14 miles North East of Dauphin, Manitoba nestled on the west shore of Lake Dauphin. Our farm has been in The Poast family for 73 years. After my father passed away in 1964 I took over the farm with my wife Dianne. We were blessed with two sons Lloyd, Paddy and a daughter Shaunalea.
I worked for the city of Dauphin for 22 years as the Parking Patrol Officer and By-Law Enforcement Officer, retiring in December 31/02. I am now looking after the horses full-time. Dianne is now a retired LPN . She has shown registered Maltese, Shelties, Bernese, and Great Pyrenees.
We have raised registered Percherons for 51 years and Registered Clydesdales for 18 years, and have even had a few Belgians, but we sold the last of our clydes in 2004 and the last of our Percherons in 2016. I showed draft horses up to 1996 but do not show anymore, but I have judged a number of draft horse shows in the last 20 years. We started in miniature horses in 1996 and now have 26 A.M.H.A & A.M.H.R miniatures.
We welcome your visit to our site and to our farm. The coffee pot is always on, and we love to show our Miniatures !
