Quicksilver Farm is owned and operated by Melinda Zalesky. Melinda has been breeding and training Welsh Ponies since 2001 and has over 40 years of experience in the equine world. 

Raised on a Quarter Horse farm in Mississippi, Melinda competed across the United States for many years. She later trained and rode for a Quarter Horse ranch in Argentina and then began concentrating on riding hunt seat while living in Mexico City. Upon returning to the United States in 1997, she began training ponies and teaching riding lessons at the family's farm in Kingsport, TN. In January of 2003, Melinda and her family moved to Chardon, OH where they lived until July 2012. The farm then relocated with the family to Charleston, SC.


In 2020, Quicksilver Farm started working in conjunction with pharmacist-owned & operated Carolina CBD Solutions to develop CBD products tailored for farm use. Inspired by the impact that CBD had on their autistic son, Carolina CBD Solutions has made it their mission to provide top shelf, cost-effective CBD products to individuals and families suffering from chronic illness. 

Quicksilver Farm CBD products are pharmacist-formulated, and designed with farm animal use in mind. In addition, all of our products are 100% safe for human consumption and use on a wide variety of animals. We believe that CBD has the potential to greatly improve the quality of life for both humans and their pets. All of our products are regularly used on Quicksilver Farm's own ponies, farm dogs, and barn cats to great effect.
