Dry Doc Freedom

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!    

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. 

DRY DOC FREEDOM's offspring have earned over $80,000.00 in NCHA and NRHA. As a Grandsire DRY DOC FREEDOM's Grandbabies have earned 169 AQHA points, $35,092.91 in NRHA, $11,577.40 in NRCHA and $6,948.32 in NCHA.
