Ranching and horses has been in our family for many years.  We were first introduced to the amazing Quarter Horse in the late fifties by our parents, Rex and Frances Turner (Lloyd) and Lefty and Dean Macdiarmid (Jan). Our parents wanted a horse that could work on the ranch and still be competitive in the arena on weekends.

Dry Smokin Dually and Jan Turner at Estevan Cutting Horse Show, August 2017


In October 2014, Lloyd and Jan travelled to Amarillo, Texas with friends Barry and Elaine Good. Lloyd was invited by the American Quarter Horse Association to recieve the 50 Year Breeder Legacy Award at an awards night in the AQHA Hall of Fame. This award is given to a breeder of Quarter Horses who has registered a foal for 50 consecutive years.
Lloyd wore his Dad's (R.L."Rex" Turner) old bucking horse tie for good luck!!
