Another personal project.  

You: Glyndon, I had no idea you had a Luka.

Yeah, well, he had no horns.  I was embarrassed for him and never took photos.  I couldn’t be bothered to finish them.  I’m kind of useless when it comes to making things for myself.  Since I had the mold, though, I figured I’d try to match his hooves, just to see.  

I won!

Sagamore Farm | Blackburn Architecture

Glyndon, MD

Sagamore Farm, the historic home to Native Dancer, is a thoroughbred horse-breeding farm owned originally by Alfred G. Vanderbilt, II. The current owner [founder of Under Armour, Kevin Plank] plans to restore the farm to its former world-class status. Blackburn provided architectural services for the renovation of two existing barns, which includes a 16-stall foaling barn and a 20-stall broodmare barn. The project incorporates several LEED elements, such as the reuse of original building materials and passive design techniques to create natural lighting and ventilation that reduce the energy demand of the buildings. In 2011, Blackburn provided architectural design services for a new 24-stall training barn, which recently completed construction.”

Sagamore Farm, located in Baltimore County, was founded in 1925 by Isaac Emerson, inventor of Bromo-Seltzer. Emerson’s daughter Margaret bequeathed the farm to her son Alfred G. Vanderbilt in 1933. Under Vanderbilt, Sagamore Farm became a premiere horse training and breeding facility. Alfred was a member of the wealthy New York Vanderbilt family and later became owner of Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course.

The farm was sold to James Ward in 1986 and in 2007, Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank purchased the farm with a long-term plan of restoration. According to the recent article in The New Yorker, Plank will also launch a new line of old-fashioned Maryland whiskey, and Sagamore will be its home base ("Skin in the Game" by Sanneh, March 24, 2014).

We just got back from Glyndon, and I’m going to go to bed now, since it’s so late. But just so everyone knows, we found our dog! The TV thing was that there were a couple stations up there that interviewed us. Sorry for the lack of posts today, but we were driving all day. I’ll talk to you guys tomorrow. Night! :)
