When you think of the South Carolina lowcountry, you might think of slow southern drawls and sitting on the front porch for a spell on Sunday afternoons. Tucked away amidst the moss laden oak avenues of charming Bluffton, South Carolina, Fascinating Farm is home to a unique breed that’s a little more…animated. Owner Christine Westphal Johnson breeds, shows, and sells action packed Hackney Ponies, with Landmark Farms’ Jonelle Chovanec’s guidance as trainer. The pint sized powerhouses of Fascinating Farm have garnered numerous Grand Championships and World Championship titles throughout the Midwest and at the World Show in Louisville, Kentucky. The farm also owns the outstanding Hackney Roadster stallion, RWC Koal.
Fascinating Farm’s name is not only a tribute to the exciting high-stepping Hackney Pony-it’s a nod to the smart, fancy hats the ladies holding the reins of these showstoppers wear, aptly called “fascinators.” We knew we wanted to incorporate a jaunty fascinator into the modern line art Hackney Pony silhouette logo design we created for Fascinating Farm, so we perched an elegant lady driver sporting a fascinator behind the snappy trotting harness pony.
