2/1/2015 Why is our name “Knob Creek Stud”? Well “the” Knob Creek is the creek that runs through our farm: “My earliest recollection is of the Knob Creek place.” So wrote Abraham Lincoln on June 4, 1860, to Samuel Haycraft of Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Haycraft had invited the future President to visit his childhood home in Kentucky. The Lincoln family lived on 30 acres of the 228 acre Knob Creek Farm from the time Abraham was two and a half until he was almost eight years old. Here he learned to talk and soon grew big enough to run errands, such as carrying water and gathering wood for the fires. Abraham recalled in later years numerous memories of his childhood here; a stone house he had passed while taking corn to Hodgen’s Mill; a certain big tree that had attracted his boyish fancy; the old homestead; the clear stream where he fished, and the surrounding hills where he picked berries were all impressed on his mind. In addition, the Stud in our name is defined as stud farm or stud in animal husbandry and is an establishment for selective breeding of livestock. The word “stud” comes from the Old English stod meaning “herd of horses, place where horses are kept for breeding”. Historically, documentation of the breedings that occur on a stud farm leads to the development of a stud book. Male animals made available for breeding to outside female animals are said to be “standing at stud”, or at “stud service”, referencing the relatively high probability that they are kept at a stud farm.
1/15/15 I have received a picture of Lady Lee the dam of Ebony’s Masterpiece. It is not a great picture; but, it is a picture. Go to the Reference Sires and Dams page to see it. If you have a picture of one of the horses listed that does not have a photo, please share!!! I believe someone should have a picture of some of the horses that have NO photo because they have show records. The mare photos are the most difficult to find. Again, if you have a photo please share!
