Furnace Brook Farm
In 1989, Curt and Phyllis Collins purchased and built Timber Hill Stables (later named Furnace Brook Farm) for their daughter Christine to train Morgan horses. Timber Hill was a modern equine facility that housed 15 stalls, an outdoor arena and large turnouts. Timber Hill featured an active lesson program and was home to champion Morgan horses that included Syndicat Legaltender, Tedwin Timberlane and Van Lu Magnum Force. In 1994, seeking a larger space for her growing business, Christine moved to Kingston, Massachusetts and transitioned Timber Hill to a larger property where she continues a successful operation today.
