Richard Rector, Owner/Breeder and Lazy R Ranch Founder, passed away July 31, 2000. He had been raising horses since the 1930's, when he was a child in Montgomery County of Indiana. Since his retirement in 1985, he had been raising miniature horses in the Missouri Ozarks. His widow, Audrey Rector, has moved the Lazy R Ranch to her home in Louisiana, to be closer to her family.
LRR-bred Miniature Horses are now in almost every state of the union. Thirtyfour current breeders of Minis originally purchased their very first mini from the LRR.
We will be providing new photos and information about the ranch very soon. Until then, we hope you enjoy some of these pictures from the Lazy R Ranch in Missouri.
