Spring Spur Family
Spring Spur has not just been a home for the Baird family, but rather a place for everyone, a unique farm where friends, family staff, and guests gather to share adventures, stories, education and history, a place where the spirit the horse is treasured and admired, where food is grown and cooked with love. The poem below written by Steve's mother, Pat, pays homage to these values.
First the stable for the beasts, second the house for shelter, then the garden for sustenance.
Each growing strength & form, beauty of structure, soundness; together they make a place in the mountains arms.
People are like the things they build, be it bricks or breakfast, food is cooked together, enjoyed Together, flavoured by love & laughter.
Keep building this rambling, unruly & embracing thing we call family.
Pat Baird, 2003
