So sorry to hear the news that Timeless Sue has passed away. Many thanks to the Our Mims family for taking such good care of her in her golden years.

Thank you Lynda for posting these pictures of a special moment in time that now will never be duplicated. What a wonderful day we all had bathing the ladies and handsome Elmhurst. It never ceases to amaze me that getting muddy, getting wet and receiving slobbery horse kisses could mean so much. A treasured day for all of us.

What a privilege Ruth..........we were in the presence of true royalty...........the next time I feel down, I will think of Timeless Sue and my friend Ruth.............

Thank you for sharing the article about Timeless Sue. She was well loved, well cared for and lived her final years being treated just the way all broodmares should be the royalty that they are.

Jeanne and Cheryl work so hard to give these Ladies a wonderful life. They share them with all of us....their beauty and funny stories and even the heartache of losing them. We all shed tears of joy when another birthday is celebrated, and then tears of sadness when they leave us.

Timeless Sue will be missed by many. And, we will never forget her.

Belated but very heartfelt condolences on the loss of Timeless Sue.  I'm so sorry but what a wonderful life she lived with you and the Ladies.  I was so honored when my friend Susan and I were able to meet her and the Ladies during the unveiling weekend a few years ago.  Very precious memories.  She will always be remembered.  ~ Jo

Somehow, I can not REPLY TO ALL anymore so I hope no one minds that technically this looks like it is for LOVEYOUB but really its to everyone

Thank you all for your kind words regarding Timeless Sue. I am still not strong enough to write a fitting tribute but I will get there.

Hana continues her recovery from the sinus infection and the lightning strike. She is eating well again and appears to be gaining weight.

Bel's Starlet finally blew out the hoof abcess after 6 weeks of vet and farrier visits. She, too, is eating again...although she lost nearly 300lbs during the ordeal. HOPEFULLY, she will be gaining weight readily now.

Poor Lotka is lost without Sue to guide her. Please pray for her heart as it has been badly broken. She is eating but her spirit is greatly diminished.

Everyone else is quiet but ok.

Prayers on wings for all at Our Mims.  I'm so glad I was able to visit in May.  The time with the Ladies is precious, and I appreciate your sharing it with me.
Hug your adorable little granddaughter.  I know she takes good care of the herd.

Jeanne, you and the ladies and of course Elmhurst are in my prayers. I still can't believe that sweet Sue is gone and poor Lotka, I pray that one of the other ladies will be her guide. Stay strong Jeanne and know that we all share in your grief.

Prayers going out to everyone at Our Mims during this difficult time, most especially to Lotka.  It's tough to lose your best friend
