Lincoln

08 Aug 2013

Ever since I was young I've wanted a horse. It's every little girls dream.... well, that along with living in a castle and having an endless supply of barbies and glitter. I finally got to experience the magic in august of 2006 when I began taking riding lessons. It was fun getting to know the horses names and meeting now people... I was shy though; always scared to open my mouth and talk to people. They probably thought I was the rudest kid ever! But, now it's a miracle when I shut up.

Soon after my lessons began, I saw a baby named Lincoln. From the second I saw him, I knew I had to have him, I needed that horse. My mom said we couldn't get him because it was way too expensive so I got a job. I set aside the Lincoln idea and decided to get better as a rider first and started leasing "Rookie Of The Year", aka Dakota! He was a fun lease and i could ride him for hours and he would just plod along without a care in the world. When the summer ended and school began... I began to realize "I need that horse!”. I have to get him or I may never be able too. "I begged my mom to let me buy the two year old for close to two years and I was gonna buy him and there was nothing anyone could do about it. We made a deal that I could buy him if we got a chore day. I didn’t sleep that night because I was so nervous/excited/scared/adrenaline filled and thought I was going to vomit! We went out to the barn the next morning and Shandi said that we got it! I almost peed my pants because I was so excited. I was the proud owner of the most magical horse ever. He was mine. The day I found out I was getting my 16 hand gelding. I was so full of excitement that I got like 12 inches of my hair cut off, and was asking to get a tattoo of him! She thought I had too much excitement for one day and thought I should go home and relax. I gave Shandi his down payment in Tim Hortons tip money and officially got my horse on September 30th. It was supposed to be October 1st! Ever since, he has been my best friend and I couldn’t be happier. I finally found something that can support my hippo hips and his name is thunder thighs / boober cakes / stinky or better known as Lincoln/Link me to Lucrative.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Cindy Shaw and I am one of the barn Moms. I am the shavings shaker, horse feeding, over worked and underpaid mother to Chelsea. I am also the very proud partial owner{shh, Chelsea doesn't know this} of a beautiful, 16 hand high, 3 year old registered quarter horse named Link Me to Lucrative. He is better known as Lincoln. Lovingly called Stinky by most and to me is known as Stinky Boobers. He is the best thing that ever happened to us. Lincoln came to be ours in October 2007 and I have been broke ever since. Lincoln's proud parents are Lucrative Assets and Hot and Rosie. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Dad, however, Mom lives at Spruce Hollow.

Chelsea and I have been part of the family since August of 2006. I really do not remember Stinky from when we first came, but Chelsea does and asked for him relentlessly since we started lessons here. To me he was just another horse and they all looked alike to me. I now know what the attraction was. He is, to me, the most beautiful creature here. He has a beautiful personality, an adorable face and the prettiest big brown eyes in the world. No matter what he does, one look in those eyes and all is forgiven. He loves his Lickits, apples, carrots, peppermints and Sue's homemade stud muffins. He also enjoys a water bottle full of grain hanging in his stall to keep him entertained and give him a snack if needed. And it seems to always be needed. He does love to eat and it shows. He seems to get taller every day. Hopefully he is finished growing now because if he gets any bigger I don't think I will have the courage to ride him. When I say ride him, I mean get on and walk wherever he wants to go as I have a bit of problem steering him. Shandi tells me I am learning and doing OK but it is hard. My bones have lost their bounce and will now just break if I hit the dirt. Chelsea has no problem at all. She got on and away she went. I'm sure the year of lessons helped, but there is no fear, only love for Lincoln. Chelsea and I do chores on Sunday and Monday to help keep him in food . There are days when we/I are done that I don't think I have the energy to get in the truck to drive home and wonder how I will ever be able to do this again. Then when we are driving down Lutes Road toward the barn and the fields of horses come into sight and I hear ""There's my Lincoln"" and I see the happiness and joy in her eyes I know I can do this for as long as it takes. The look on her face makes it worth all the hard work. I wouldn't change it for anything. Working at Spruce Hollow makes us appreciate him all the more. To me, Chelsea and Lincoln are worth every forkful of shavings I have picked up. I hope to do it for a long time to come. Thank you Shandi for making Chelsea's dream come true and being able to own such an incredible horse. You taught him well and continue to teach us every time we are there. I am so thankful that you were the one in the yellow pages that we called. We couldn't have found a better place or better people to be with. The Spruce Hollow family always helps one another and I for one would like to thank you all for all you have done for us. We love it here and hope to be here for a very long time.
