Welcome to Shadow Creek Farms, where we take pride in beautiful, athletic horses. The farm is owned and opperated by Thomas and Barbara Carey, and Matthew and Melissa Shaver. We have been involved in the horse industry for 15 years. Our goal is to produce athletic and trainable horses that are beautiful in addition to having great, people oriented personalities.

Our main focus is the working western divisions in the Arabian and Half Arabian Divisions as well as the NRHA. We also have stunning pleasure horses.

Being a licensed Veterinarian, Melissa oversees all the health aspects including breeding and foaling. In addition to the farm, she works as a mixed animal practitioner for a few of the local veterinary hospitals.  She received her doctorate in 2006 from Oregon State and Washington State Universities.  She has been working toward and will receive her acupuncture license in the fall of 2011 so she can offer that service to clients as well as providing natural healing and treatment to horses on the farms.

She is also an active member of Northwest Equine Practitioners Association, Arabian Horse Breeders Association of Oregon, American Quarter Horse Association, Arabian Horse Association, and International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.

Congrats also to TR Bella Donna and Melissa Shaver on their Region IV Purebred Arabian Trail Jr. Horse Championship!
