The Newest Addition at the UMass Hadley Farm

Stockbridge Sonnet was born at 12:29am on June 11, 2019, out of Elite Hanoverian mare “Alessandra Q” (donated by Suzanne Quarles/Some Day Soon Farm) and by FEI Grand Prix dressage stallion “Schroeder” (owned by Kathy Hickerson/Majestic Gaits).

The foaling crew included Rob Navaroli (BS-Sustainable Food & Farming ‘19), Rebecca Lotane (AS-Equine Management ‘16), Haleigh Tyerman (BS-Animal Science ‘22) and Vanessa Cote (BS - Animal Science ‘21). The name was chosen to honor Levi Stockbridge, the first professor of agriculture at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, now UMass, and as a special salute to the closing AS Equine Management program.
