Muffett Farms is a plantation located on the rugged shores of Smith River on the Southern Oregon Coast. Beaver beside the creek, elk munching leaves, love of forest management and animals.
We here at Muffett Farms are a family run farm and are breeders of purebred AKC Irish Setters, Irish Dexter Cattle, and Arabian Sport horses. Back when he was raising his family on a dairy farm in Molalla, Oregon, Win Muffett had a dream of working in the woods as a timber faller and logger. He then purchased the property known today as Muffett Farms, where Win lived out that dream. Now, his youngest son, John Muffett and his wife Rose, are carrying his dream into the future by keeping Muffett Farms name alive through their love of forest management and animals.
Our AKC Irish Setters Fleetwood Farms Jet Setter, Fleetwood Farms Ginger Snap and Fleetwood Farms Little Liza, all come from an impressive bloodline. All three were born at Fleetwood Farms in Ohio, each pedigree reads like a history book. Fleetwood Farms Jet Setters sire, Fleetwood Farms O' Danny Boy, is a sire of Champions. His bloodline goes back to AKC "Best In Show." Fleetwood Farms Champion, Starheirs Aaron Ardee, ROM- is the most "Best In Show" winning male Irish Setter in American history. He was a winner of 36 AKC "Best In Shows," a record still undefeated today. He was awarded Group 2, twice at the prestigious Westminster dog show, and rated 7th among the top Sporting dogs of all time. Our dogs pedigrees go back to BIS Champion Starheirs Aaron Ardee, and continue on this line of unparalleled beauty. His full younger brother, Champion Fleetwood Farms Grand Marshal, was "Best of Winners" in over 400+ Irish Setters at the Irish Setter Club of America's first National Specialty.
Thee Scarlet Setter and My Sweet Candy Cane's bloodlines go back to Fleetwood lines on her sire's side, as well as many Champion Cucuhullian lines. Also, FC AFC "Karrycourt's Wild West Hero," FC AFC "Damika Wild Wisk Kay" CD JH, NFC AFC "Brophy's Pumpernickel," NFC NAFC "Brophys Mahogany Fielder," NFC NAFC "Darth Raider O'Reily," and "Zarahemlas" lines which are champions in Field.
Our dogs are not raised in a kennel, they live in the house with us. We consider our dogs as members of our family. Scarlet's puppies were born in our house and were well socialized, we plan to do the same with our next pending litter. With their excellent bloodlines our puppies will be great duel dogs for hunting or show and would also make great pets. Our Irish Setters have natural hunting instincts, yet they are wonderful house pets too. Our dogs are noted for their calm and gentle nature, they are true couch potatoes! Quality Irish Setters are becoming very rare, especially the calmer ones with gentle nature. Here at Muffett Farms, we keeping the Irish Setter breed intact for all its beauty as well as its grandeur.

Old American, CMK, and Egyptian lines, of which some are related to the
equine stars in Walter Farley's Black Stallion movies, as well

We have devoted many years to developing good quality, well bred
Arabians which are level headed, doing horses with excellent substance
as well as conformation. We take a great deal of pride in our fine
brood mares and their offspring, along with an excellent stallion
Magic Magic, sire of Bleu Knight Foxy+, our 2004 National Top Ten
Champion Arabian Sport Horse Stallion In-Hand and 2005 AHA Show
and Regional Dressage Champion.
We are always working towards a 'doing' Arabian that is also beautiful.
Our main herd runs free on hundreds of acres, with as much freedom and
natural environment as we and nature can provide. We feel that this
helps our horses become better athletes and more trustworthy mounts,
while adding to their well being and peace of mind, also developing
their natural instincts. It is not unusual to see our herd of horses
graze side by side with elk or deer. The terrain our horses roam
includes lush green meadows as well as steep hillsides with numerous
creeks to cross.
Our Arabians are all American-bred Arabians, and we are very proud of
this fact. Our Arabians could be an asset to any program. Our Arabians
are bred to do almost everything from Dressage and Halter to Park,
as well as Endurance, Jumping, Western Pleasure, Reining, Team Penning, and
Ranch Work. We would like to stress that our Arabians are
versatile family horses!
Our Arabians are of excellent quality and are honestly represented,
they have never been mistreated or abused. We love our horses! If you
would like references to our credibility, please do not be embarrassed
to ask. You are welcome to inspect our Arabians and to have them
evaluated by your Vet, trainer, or fellow breeder. All are in good
condition and have had their shots, regular worming, and farrier care.
They come with their registration certificates, and we also provide any
tests necessary for their transport. Please see our Sales Page for a List of
AKC Irish Setter Puppies and Sport Horses currently available for purchase.
