Butter Cup Samurai

sam and me

Like many of my co-workers I am obsessed with my horse, a 16-year-old thoroughbred gelding named Samurai. This obsession manifests itself in many ways, from spending 20 minutes trying to pick out the perfect new treats for Sam to try or personalizing all of his clothing with his name. (Have you seen what our embroidery department can do? It’s amazing!! And Sam needs a saddle pad in every color.)

In short my horse is a huge part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. While some consider this obsession unhealthy, I can think of nothing cuter then sharing our love (and my obsession) in song!

Butter Cup Samurai
(Sing to Butter Cup Baby)

How do you build me up (Build me up)
Samurai baby as you
Stand around (stand around)
Eating your hay and the best of all (best of all)
You’re always there baby
Where you say you’ll be (say you’ll be)
In the stall or field
I need you (I need you)
More than anyone darlin’
Know that I have from the start

So build me (Build me up)
You have my heart

‘I’ll be over at ten’
Farrier says time and again
But he’s late
I wait around for him
I go to the stall
I can’t take any more
It’s not you
But we need to ride

Sammy, Sammy
Try to find a little time
And I’ll make you happy
We’ll be grazing
I’ll be grooming you all night long
Loving on you

How do you build me up (Build me Up)
To you I’m a chore
But I could be the herd
You adore
If you’d just let me try
Although I’m human
You’re attached to me
All the more
How do I need you so baby baby….

Ooh ooh ooh
How do you build me up?!

    Beautiful beautiful girl and Samari…… If everybody knew such love for their four legged family member this would surely be a better world.
    I love you both…. But honestly I love you best to the moon and back! Mom

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
