The birth of the Akehurst’s Flying A Brand

The birth of the Akehurst’s Flying A Brand was established in 1951 when Don and Barbara Akehurst purchased their first Quarter Horse Mare from Lemon Ranch in Hardin, Montana. Her name was Nona (AQHA Registered #103258).

Over the years, the number of mares have become too numerous to list, but the breeding heritage still remains in the Ranch’s current band of broad mares.

Don started in the cattle and horse industry about the same time. Doubling as a rancher and rodeo cowboy, he always needed horses that could perform.
