from Lindon Farm
Hollis, ME — Don and Linda Marean, owners of Lindon Farm, Inc. of Hollis, Maine, are pleased to announce their involvement in a unique partnership with the University of Maine. For the 2008 breeding season they will stand their trotting stallion, Roadshow Hall (Garland Lobell-Roses N Guns) at the J. F. Witter Teaching and Research Center of the University of Maine.
The Mareans are the owners of one of Maine’s premiere pacing stallions, Lahar, who was the top producing Sire Stakes pacing stallion in both 2005 and 2006 and second leading producer in 2007. They will continue to stand him at their farm, but offered the opportunity to stand Roadshow Hall to the University.
Don Marean stated: “In many long and fruitful conversations with both Dr. Robert Causey and Dr. Jim Weber at UMaine, we’ve become more and more interested in pursuing ways in which we in the Standardbred industry can partner with educational institutions and promote the industry with those who have a deep affection for learning about the harness racehorse. If pre-vet and animal science sfudents can have a real hands-on experience with a breeding stallion and the process of mare insemination, they are only more well-prepared for work in the industry someday.”
