Welcome to Lyday Farms! The history of Lyday Farms dates back to the 1830's when cotton was 'king' and livestock were commonly seen throughout the landscape. Located in the rural east Texas countryside, the original 50 acre homestead has belonged to Sandra Lyday Fernandes' family for several generations.Owners Gary and Sandra Fernandes became intensely interested in horses as their other business interests wound down and their desire increased to create a lasting legacy for their children and grandchildren. It wasn't long before the goals of Lyday Farms' first class Egyptian Arabian breeding program were defined. Gary and Sandra added over 1,200 additional acres to the original plot as well as the finest equine facilities, including state of the art barns, training equipment, and carefully maintained pastures. Lyday Farms' family has been hard at work continuing to build a world-class breeding program. A new barn with boarding and training facilities was added in 2003, and an additional 15 stalls and a new high-tech breeding lab are planned for construction this fall. Under the expert guidance of head trainer and manager Bryan Jeffries, and breeding manager Melinda Jeffries, they are now seeing the fruits of their labors in their eighth foal crop. "Quality in our operations is foremost and is an integral part of both our breeding and training program," states Gary. In many ways the history of Lyday Farms is still in the making. "Our history will be determined by what we do every day," he continues. "I'm sure that the initial momentum we've worked hard to create will continue to build as we move forward together with this wonderful breed."
