Welcome to Harris Paint Horses & Stallion Station
Harris Paints was founded in 1989 by Tim & Cindy Harris, and is located on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland. We were active in breeding & showing Quarter Horses for many years prior to changing our breeding program to primarily Paints. Our goal is to produce exceptional halter and performance Paint, Pinto & Quarter Horse foals, and to give our customers the best possible service at economical prices.
We offer a unique form of customer service. We understand the time and expense our customers incur getting their mares ready for breeding and we therefore do everything possible to ensure they have semen when they need it.
We enjoy getting to know our customers personally and hearing about their horses and their families. Since this is a family owned and operated business, mare owners are assured that their mares are personally cared for by us.
We believe that to "stand still in our industry is to fall behind". Therefore, we strive to further our knowledge and education in the equine industry.
Almost 30 years ago I decided I wanted to raise paints as a full time business. At the time I was also a paralegal working full time in a law office. A very wise vet told me that if I truly wanted to be in this business I needed to remember three things:
1. The "Horse Business" is a tough business and will "separate the men from the boys".
2. If you have livestock you will also have "dead stock".
3. Horses spend 90 percent of their lives trying to commit suicide.
I have found that his advice many years ago is so true.
With a deep sadness in our heart we announce the passing of One Kool Krymsun. Kool was an incredible stallion and we feel honored and privileged to have owned him. A special thank you to Lori Hanson and her family for that opportunity.
