In Memory of
Dry Doc Freedom
Sorrel AQHA Stallion
April 1976 - January 2001
Born: April 19, 1976 in Fair Haven, Michigan, U.S.A.
Breeder: M. L. Chartier
Sire: Dry Doc - the 1971 NCHA Futurity Champion with total earnings of $99,782 in Cutting and offspring earnings of $3,900,960 in cutting.

The legacy of Dry Doc Freedom began when Turner Brothers (Lloyd & David Turner) went in search for a stallion prospect. Their search ended in 1976 at Fair Haven Farms in Michigan which was the home of the Legendary Dry Doc. Turner Brothers purchased Dry Doc Freedom "Freedom" from M. L. Chartier as a weanling and brought him to his new home in Shamrock, SK. Canada as a yearling in 1977. Freedom instantly became a big part of the Turner family! Although, over time the partnership of Turner Brothers evolved into a partnership of the Turner Performance Horses (Lloyd & Jan Turner) and Turner Quarter Horses (Sherelyn, Tanya and Kevin Turner) Freedom remained the cornerstone of the breeding program for the Turners.
Freedom will always hold a special place in our hearts . . . we loved him like a family member
. . . and his legacy will carry on through the generations of his offspring.
How Dry Doc Freedom got his name: 1976 marked the 200th Anniversary of the U.S.A. and that year M.L. Chartier named the first three foals born to Fair Haven Farms - Dry Doc Freedom, Dry Doc Liberty and Dry Doc Justice.
