Squire bought the Heiser company saddle in Denver in 1905 when he was fifteen years old. For over twenty years, Squire worked for the famous cattleman, J.L. Norvell, then he went on to run his own successful cattle operation. Squire was the State Brand Inspector for nearly twenty years. He owned several locally famous horses, including the infamous bucking bronc, General Pershing.
