Mims is one special angel! She will help us get through a difficult time here and give us the guidance we need. She wouldn't want us to walk away now, that's for sure.

We have lots of work to do in her honor, and in honor of all those who have gone on.

Oh, yes, Mims had a presence. She could melt your heart with a nicker. When she was walking up to you, eager for your company, your knees literally grew weak. And it wasn't just me. Other people said the same thing. She was magic.

When she was alive, I'd stand grooming her, just talking to her and all my trouble would melt away. I'd tell her all about my day. Sometimes I'd be upset, If she thought I was whining about something she'd pin her ears. If I had good reason to be upset, she'd nuzzle my cheeks. 

She was the best friend anyone could ask for.

Mims is special. She has guided Cheryl, Pam and I through many rough spots. Cheryl and I struggled many times wondering where the next dollar was coming from, we'd be down to the last bale of hay with no funds and something would happen...a dream of Mims, a donation out of the blue because someone hundreds of miles away suddenly remembered a race he bet years ago which he won money and decided to google the filly he bet on...something always happens.

Two years ago I started having some health issues. I needed help on the farm I could no longer work my day job of 40-60 hours and put in the needed 40+ hours to care for the ladies and do repairs, mow pastures etc on the farm.

I asked for help. Pam and her family, now known as the barn fairies. moved in.

Oh Jeanne!

When I've visited you and the Ladies, you've told me amazing stories.....about every wonderful one of them......you truly have a gift......your ability to "see" the story, and tell it in such a rich, powerful way is captivating.....you should write a book about your Our Mims ladies! I would PRE-BUY it for sure!!!

Reading tonite about Our Mims.....and your relationship with her.....the way she has communicated to you in your dreams......I am in tears....as I am each time I visit....both your farm...and your website!!! I hadn't realized Sugar & Spice was Our Mims sister......how long was she with you? How old was she? What a wonderful gift Mims gave you....to heal your heart with her......and how special, that she trusted you SO.....with her own sister...... AND THEN.....the Exactly So part......oh my.....

I look so forward to reading more of your stories & insights.....AND to visiting you again soon in the new year.....how is Hana Bride? She stole my heart.....

I keep Our Mims and all connected in my prayers.....and look forward to finding ways I can help.....

Blessings,

I know that Mims would want all of us to move forward to help all those who a

ren't as fortunate as she was in her last years. She maintained her dignity when times were tough for her. Surely we can all do the same.

From all the other stories you've told me, I honestly think that she is your guardian angel.

Not going any where, we need more people like Jeanne ane Joe for sure. Did you see the Dymaformer colt at Joe's today. His eyes look just like Barbaro's. His name is Totally Platinum.

Joe is a great guy! I will not tell Cathy your in love with Joe, I am too! Taking care of 104 horses everyday. Hat's off to them both.
