Darryl's foray into the western lifestyle began when he was just a young child. Following his 2nd cousin around on the Barrel Racing circuit, at first just because someone needed to shovel out the trailer, little did he know a lifestyle was developing. While on tour Darryl learned how to shoe a horse and quickly became one of the ferriers sought out while on the road. Other than accidentally handing the odd horse a hot nail, a good portion of the other ladies respected his work. They certainly appreciated the price since Darryl worked for a hot meal and maybe some diaper wipes to clean his filthy hands.
Now a Sergeant with 18 years experience at a local municipal police service, Darryl is still living the western lifestyle. When he's not raising his 20 head of miniature Yorkies he still finds time to compete in amateur rodeo. With Darryl first taking the 2015 Saddle Bronc title at the Calgary Police Rodeo, he followed it up 2 years later with the 2017 Bull Dogging championship. Darryl is a proud member of the EFRRA board and only wishes his best roughstock years weren't already behind him due to his age. Darryl now primarily focuses his time on the upcoming EFRRA rodeo and hoping to find a forgiving partner so he can learn to team rope. Darryl also probably wishes he would have submitted his own Bio before the deadline.
