Lucas spent time participating in college, amateur and pro rodeos and now team ropes with friends and family when the ability arises for him.

Lucas enjoys helping everyone and anyone who may need a hand , no matter how big or small the job.

Darkhorse’s name sake all started with Dexter, a wonderful black horse who is currently moving into retirement years and becoming his young son’s horse. Lucas’s ranch, that is now booming with life and activity, all began with this horse named Dexter and his bordie collie named Cisco (Lucas’s real first baby) who is working towards becoming a retired cattle dog, living the dream of increasingly easier rides moving our herds,  plenty of treats and love, and a flock of chickens, ducks and geese to now watch over.

As Darkhorse continues to grow, the dedication and commitment to high standards, high work ethic and hard work remains. Darkhorse is a reflection of the ownership pride and commitment to this area, its history and preservation as well as the amazing families that reside here.
