    Default Great entry from Boyd's groom, Lindsey

    I'm sure a lot of you have seen this already but it brought tears to my eyes. This is Boyd's head groom, Lindsey, recounting her best memories of Burghley. So inspiring, touching, and genuine. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

    "He wasn't even supposed to be here." That part is what got me. AND I can totally see that line in the movie :-D

    Me, too!

    I happen to have a little white-faced chestnut gelding from humble origins who is starting to really come into himself, so the whole Neville story just breaks me up, and this was no exception. Great job putting it into words, Lindsey, and keep up the good work for our boy!!

    Had to find a smuched up napkin before anyone else in the restaurant noticed my tears! What a great post!

    Lindsey looks after our two "B" boys every day - we are fortunate to have her on the job and Boyd's luck to have her as head girl. She is terrific!

    Thanks to Katie Lindsay also for having the idea to approach Lindsey to write the article for our Area IV newsletter! Lindsay blew us away with her story and we are so grateful for the personal photos she shared also! Lindsey has promised us more articles in the future so stay tuned...
