Floyd Beard has been a cowboy most of his life. Along the way he’s had many other jobs to support his cow habit. Floyd and his wife Valerie currently run a cow calf operation in the canyons south of Kim, CO.

Floyd began writing poetry while out working his cattle in the 1980’s. He would write down lines and verses about what he experienced while out in the saddle and dealing with his livestock and horses. He would then mold these thoughts into stories and songs when he got back to the house that evening. His poetry is about his own experiences and his observations of the western way of life.

Floyd’s stories are inter-woven with his western code of high ethics and integrity and sprinkled richly with humor. Floyd also recites some cowboy poetry classics, from some of the best cowboy poets from the past, keeping the western spirit and history alive.

Biography

 

He has presented his stories and western songs all around Colorado and many other surrounding states, and as far away as Stoney Plains, Alberta Canada.

Floyd served three years as the President of the Colorado Chapter of the Western Music Association. He also spent those three years winning many cowboy poetry awards in the U.S.A. including the Western Music Association 2016 Male Poet of the Year

His philosophy is simple: “Life is a journey not a destination, and is best viewed from atop a good horse.”
