Dr. Linda J. Harmon of Iron Horse Farm Lovington, IL


         A 1990 graduate of University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.  She started her career in draft horse veterinary medicine at the Arthur Veterinary Clinic in 1996 with Dr. Lisa Eller. Linda switched from the Hunter Jumper horse world to draft horses in 1993 when she received her first two Clydesdale mares as yearlings.  These two mares lived their entire long and productive lives on Iron Horse Farm.  One of these mares Pine Lake Janie was the first of many champion horses exhibited by Iron Horse Farm and Linda.  Iron Horse Farm has bred raised and exhibited many All- American horses, national champion horses and World Champion horses.   The current world champion stallion Iron Horse MM Steele was bred and raised by LInda before moving to Wismer Clydesdales for his extraordinary show and breeding career.  His first Scottish born offspring was a stud foal born July 4 of this year.   Horses with the Iron Horse Farm prefix can be found residing in South Africa, Scotland, Quebec, Ontario and across the US.  When not caring for her horses and farm LInda can be found driving around central Illinois for her practice of veterinary chiropractic and veterinary acupuncture. 

         Linda started her career in veterinary chiropractic in 1997 at Options for Animals.  Completion of this course and requests from her clients led to International Veterinary Acupuncture School and the addition of Acupunture to her practice. Linda’s chiropractic and acupuncture clientele includes dogs, horses, cats, cattle, pigs and sheep.  As she says “if it has a tail she will treat it”. LInda’s home menagerie is a fluid depending what she picks up and rescues.  Currently it is 4 cats, 2  three legged dogs (Tootsie 15.5 yrs and Cinnamon 8 yrs) and the yellow lab rescue famous Flap and 12 Clydesdales.
