A quality Clydesdale breeding operation located in south central Michigan. Home to about 12 head of beautiful Clydesdale horses, this farm is internationally known for the excellence of animals produced. Armageddon Clydesdales was honored as Premier Exhibitor at the National Clydesdale Show for eleven consecutive years, that string of successes ending a few years ago. The Clydesdales are exhibited at hitch and halter, showing annually at the National Clydesdale Show, Wisconsin State Fair, the Michigan Great Lakes International and the Michigan Draft Horse Breeders Show.
The herd usually consists of a stallion, several brood mares and on average of four foals are currently being produced annually. Most foals are sold at weaning time. There are usually a yearling, two and three year olds in the show string in addition to the breeding horses. Armageddon's hitch was an all home grown black clydesdale mare hitch. We hitch for pleasure at home and show a cart from time to time currently.
The owners, Dr. Michael and Cheri Moleski, are active in both the state and national organizations. Michael was a long time Board Member of the Clydesdale Breeders of the United States and is a past President. Cheri is a past Board member of the Clydesdale Breeders of the US and past President of the Michigan Draft Horse Breeders Association.
The 2013 show season was an unqualified success. Armageddon's Lord Lazarus (pictured below) was named Grand Champion Stallion at the National Clydesdale Show and the Regional Show at the Wisconsin State Fair. Lazarus has been owned since he was a foal by good friend Steve Jones of Topeka, Indiana, and was exhibited this year by Greenwood Farms. Additionally, we were named Premier Clydesdale Exhibitor at the Wisconsin State Fair for the 14th time. To top that we were awarded first prize Best Three Mares Bred and Owned by Exhibitor at the National Show for the 16th time!
We continue to show on a limited basis, the grandchildren being common participants in various showmanship classes.

This flashy four year old broodmare was never shown before. She had a great show year. She started out at the Michigan Draft Horse Breeders Show winning first prize over all breeds. She was second broodmare at the National Show and the Wisconsin State Fair. She was Best Mare Three and over at the Wisconsin Regional Show, was in our winning group of Best Three Mares Bred and Owned at the National and together with her filly foal Myra won the Mare and Foal class at the National Show.

HERITAGE HALL OF FAME
At the 2013 National meeting of the Clydesdale Breeders of the United States, we were honored to be inducted as the newest members of the Heritage Hall of Fame. This honor is accorded to those felt to have made very significant contributions to the Clydesdale breed and it's organization. We were both surprised and more than pleased to be so honored, as you can tell by the picture below.
