With agricultural roots embedded deep within South Dakota, Denny & Doris Lauing/Lauing Mill Iron L Ranch are carrying on the legacy. Our philosophy is that every animal raised is given a job. We put a lot of time & effort into training our horses making sure the horse learns the fundamentals& many aspects of the performance horse industry. No matter what is asked of our horses, whether it be roping, cutting or barrel racing….they have the brains to do it all. We think our broodmare band compliments our stallions creating a well built program. Our goal is to produce all around prospects that are athletic, correct confirmation, nice dispositions and excellent bloodlines that will provide you with the best opportunity to be successful on ranch or in the arena.

In 2011 we chose to relocate our operation from Central SD to east of the Black Hills near Sturgis. Even though we changed our address, our operation continues to focus on the same great genetics. That same year the Lauing Mill Iron L Ranch was recognized by the American Quarter Horse Association as a ‘Ranching Heritage Breeder’ representing the longevity, honesty and integrity of raising quality American Quarter Horses while upholding the ranching heritage.

Denny & Doris have made their lives what they are today by working together. With the joining of two families, we have managed to give 5 beautiful children the opportunity to learn & compete with these wonderful creatures; Keith Pazour & wife Erin, Scott Pazour & wife Sarah, Dan Pazour & wife Tessa, Kaylie & husband Aaron Sterud and Shean Lauing & his wife Kimberly. As our family grows, we now have the pleasure to do the same for our Grandchildren. We believe our strong family values & faith has allowed to grow into what we are today. We invite you to stop by tha ranch anytime.
