Born out of the great love of horses, a boy's dream, morphing into raising, breeding and training Arabians, DeVere Randall saw his childhood dream come to fruition when he opened "The Rockin' R".  After many years in the land moving business, "Dee" as known by friends, retired now, (but really?  is he?!) owns, and operates The Rockin' R, which was voted "Best Dude Ranch in the Midwest" by American Cowboy Magazine.  Dee shares his love of horses along with his children and grandchildren, who you can see daily horsin' around at The Rockin' R.

The Rockin' R has become a favorite travel destination amongst families traveling to Northern Michigan for over 25 years and counting.
