Welcome to the Cyber Home of Stanton Stables. We have owned, bred and shown horses for 40 plus years. Including, the APHA World Champion sire Zippin. Stanton Stables, formerly known as Berry Patch Paints, is located in East Central Illinois in the heart image copyright Harrison Phillipsof rich farmland and gently rolling prairie. You will find us just 3 miles south of Urbana, within view of the University of Illinois Assembly Hall and only minutes from one of the Nation’s top Veterinary Colleges.

Built for Breeding
 Our new facility is designed for breeding and foaling. We have a stallion collecting area and a modern laboratory equipped to grade and ship cooled semen. We offer shipped semen via Fed-Ex or Airline. Foaling stalls are equipped with closed circuit cameras monitored from the house. Our indoor arena can be viewed from the visitorís lounge.

Large pastures, roofed turn-outs, and limed dry lots all add to the safety and comfort of our horses. We occasionally have weanlings or yearlings for sale or know of clients who have Zippins  for sale. We’re very happy to connect buyers and sellers at no charge to either.

Join Us for a Joyride
Stanton Stables is also home to “Joyride,” a Therapeutic Riding Program directed by Champaign-Urbana Parks Department. We are privileged to provide the facility and horses for this program.
