The Lazy E Ranch opened its gates in the fall of 1984 and since that time has been involved in both the Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred racing industries. With the purchase of World Champion and World Champion sire Special Effort in 1989, the Lazy E began to earn recognition as one of the top Quarter Horse breeding operations in the country.
The 2014 stallion roster includes: Carters Cartel, Corona Cartel, Feature Mr Bojangles, Hawkinson, Jess Lips, Louisiana Senator, Mighty B Valiant, One Dashing Eagle, Pappasito, PYC Paint Your Wagon, Tac It Like A Man, Teller Cartel, Valiant Hero. Zan Parr Jack, the Lazy E's star performance-bred stallion, has been here since the ranch's conception and will live out his retirement at the ranch.
Approximately 1500 horses pass through the Lazy E Ranch gates each year and, in 2014, the Lazy E will breed approximately 1,100 mares and foal out over 200 mares. The Lazy E Ranch prepares between 450 to 500 head of sale horses each year and proudly represents them at various sales throughout the United States. The Lazy E is constantly striving to become an elite force within the marketing arena for the horses it represents.
