Since the early 1900s, The Lauing Family has ranched in Central South Dakota. As the third and fourth generations ranching here, we continue to build our program. Our mission is to preserve the usability and accomplishments of Blue Valentine/Joe Hanock foundatiom through offspring bred for your consideration.
Foals from our ranch go on to other breeding programs, to the arena, and to be used as working ranch horses. These horses are mounting competitors from youth to the PRCA all across the country. They are cowy horses that are smooth moving across the pasture and quick on their feet in the arena. They have color, conformation and size with muscle and the right amount of bone to perform in all disciplines. Horses raised here will do well anywhere.
All Lauing Ranch stallions and mares are AQHA tested negative for the 5 panel genetics test. Keeping true to the Blue Valentine Legacy with stallions such as Hancocks Red Fox, with impressive names on his papers including Leo Hancock Hayes and Fox Coup, Lauing Ranch has added new this year, Plenty Coup Bonnet. He is 50% Goooseberry and his foals will be available in 2020. The Lauings are AQHA Lifetime Members, consecutively breeding horses for nearly 40 years. AS Ranching Heritage Breeders since 2009, all Lauing Ranch foals are eligible and can be nominated to the AQHA Rancing Heritage Challenge.
The best way to see what Lauing Ranch has to offer, is to see the horses for yourself. Visitors are always welcome. We would love to show you our horses. We have been fortunate to be in a business we love, and that continues to help us connect with our buyers who have become friends over the years. We say thanks to all of you who have purchased horses from us in the past and we look forward to visiting with you at the sale this year.
