Personal



Single…Works at Dynasty Equine…Parents Shelton and Dian Taylor…Babyflo is a full sister to Fallon’s top stallion Nicks Huachuca (Chuck Taylor). Chuck Taylor was the first foal and only stallion by Fallon’s amazing NFR mare Flowers and Money and her world champion producing stallion Dr. Nick Bar. With the help of Flowers and Money and Dr. Nick Bar, Fallon qualified for four consecutive NFRs. Considers Chuck Taylor as a miracle stallion as just when Fallon was getting ready to campaign him on the rodeo trail, he got his shoe/foot caught in a fence at their house after getting loose from the wash rack. In the incident he lost his foot. He passed away in 2013…Fallon broke her C-2 vertebrae in her neck in a horse accident in 2009…In addition to barrel racing she has also been a New York model and was the Axe body spray girl, made appearances on several TV shows including Two and a Half Men..Started her own clothing company – ranchdressn.com with her two best friends in 2014…Fallon and Babyflo became just the third duo to win a WPRA World title going to the left barrel first in 2014. Others who have gone to the left barrel first include Ardith Bruce and Red (1964) and Lindsay Sears and Martha (2008, 2011).
