Dr. Tom Newton lives and works at Little Hawk Farm. With over thirty years of equine veterinary experience, Dr. Newton offers a full range of equine reproductive services. Little Hawk Farm is located in central Virginia at 1625 Cardwell Road, Crozier, Goochland County, Virginia 23039.


Facilities - The farm has several barns to accommodate outside mares and a separate stallion barn. The stallion barn has an indoor breeding area with palpation stocks and phantom.  The barn also includes a reproductive lab and four stallion stalls. The main barn, which is used for foaling mares, has stalls equipped with cameras.  Individual turnout for visiting mares or mares with a foal is available.


Stallions - Little Hawk Farm always has several resident stallions and is home to many other visiting stallions during breeding season. Some of these stallions come to the farm and stay for the duration of the breeding season. Others ship in for breeding mares by natural cover or are collected for mares to be bred by artificial insemination on the farm. Dr. Newton is available on the farm to collect and package semen for shipment.


Mares - If you are a mare owner, Dr. Newton can assist you with breeding your mare to the stallion of your choice. Except where breed registry prohibits, most stallions now offer the shipment of fresh cooled or frozen semen. If you wish to breed your mare with fresh cooled or frozen semen, LHF will board your mare, follow her cycle through a program of teasing and palpation and at the appropriate time, order semen produced by any stallion of your choice from whom shipped semen is available. Dr. Newton uses ultrasonography in all phases of the breeding process.


Foaling - When your mare is ready to foal out, LHF can also assist you. We provide 24-hour mare observation. We have foaling stalls with visual monitors and use the Foal Alert system that notifies the staff when a mare goes into labor. Dr. Newton resides on the farm and attends all foalings.


Weaning - Dr. Newton recommends weaning between four and six months of age depending upon the individual needs of the mare and foal involved. The farm has the facilities and personnel to handle this important event.


Vet Services - In addition to on and off farm reproductive care, Dr. Newton provides the full range of ambulatory and on farm equine medical and field surgery services. These include:  Coggins, routine vaccinations, preventative health examinations, dentistry, lameness evaluations and treatment, ultrasound, x-rays, nutrition and management consultation and field surgeries. Some of the surgeries provided are:  castrations (including cryptorchids), umbilical hernia repair, lacerations and others that do not require hospitalization. Call the office or e-mail Dr. Newton to discuss your questions or to schedule an appointment.
