HONEY BEAR FARM , in Dublin, Ohio, has been owned and operated by Paul and Celeste Fender since 1973. It is the home of the HBF horses and numerous others.
Their first Paint horse to show was Honey Bear, after whom the farm was named and who became the foundation of their breeding program. Originally, the family was involved in the Paint Horse industry and they successfully raised National and World Champions, Reserve World Champions, NSBA Champions, Honor Roll winners, Top Twenty All-Around horses, Lifetime Leading horses, Youth Versatility Winners, APHA Champions, Superior Award and ROM earners. Their accomplishments also include being the breeders of foundation stallions First In Command (Multiple APHA World Champion and Versatility Sire) and HBF Iron Man (by First In Command), 5X APHA Champion (HUS & WP) and sire of multiple APHA and Pinto World Champions, and Congress Champions (AQHA and Paint).
First In Command passed away in 2011 and will forever be remembered. HBF Iron Man was recently sold and is settling into his new home but continues to sire world class offspring!
Most recently, Paul & Celeste have been involved in breeding AQHA and double-registered AQHA/APHA horses and are committed to raising quality Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure and All Around prospects! Currently, Celeste is on four APHA Lifetime Leading Breeders Lists: World Champions Earned, Superiors Earned, Superior All Around Earners, and Versatility Earners. In the AQHA arena, Honey Bear Farm has successfully produced a multiple AQHA Congress Top 5 Finalist. Their broodmare band consists of AQHA, Thoroughbred and AQHA/APHA double registered mares. Though now breeding on a limited basis, their mares are bred to some of the finest stallions in AQHA and APHA history.
