Shirley Byers was an impressive horse woman with a spirit of steel and a set determination that was second to none.

Her strength and self-determined character impressed me as unique, full of a true grit I seldom saw in women of her era.

Her passion for horses and the Alberta traditions of cowboy life can be seen threaded through her family.

I like to think she will be smiling when the trucks, stainless steel horse trailers and beautiful horses pull up for another day of roping!

Thoughts and love to all her family,

Laurie Walline
