His favorite pastime was attending horse sales and conducting business as D&M Saddlery selling his tack.
Danny enjoyed watching his grandchildren ride horses. When they were small, it was not uncommon for the grandkids to be with him at the horse sale. A lot of the time, he would put the kids to work helping sell his tack or riding the horses through the ring.
