Jingle Belle was born Christmas Day and was always a special little girl. We lost her to ulcers June 2009. She was symptom free for 8 months. She had colic symptoms, ended up at Purdue that afternoon. When they opened her up, she had 2 ulcers that had perforated in her small intestine. No option at that point but to let her go. The picture above was taken about a month before we lost her. She was only 2 1/2 years old.

Arya was only going to be 2 in June, 2011. This was the first foal Courtney had raised and trained. She colliced and continued to go downhill. The vet said she had kidney failure. She was a very special filly to Courtney and her other mare, who she was a seeing eye friend for.

Tribute to Sunsets Outlaw II
As many of you know we lost our beloved gelding, Sunsets Outlaw II "aka Little Bubba" September 17th 2013. We wanted to recognize him as the wonderful little horse that he was and how he filled our lives with so uch joy. This kind of horse comes but onece in a lifetime.
Who could of known how one little bay horse purchased at an auction to be shown at Walking horse shows in lead line would be so pinnacle in so many lives. From the countless children he carried safely in leadline, to the Supreme Halter wins and abounding blue ribbons and youth championships. He was a baby sitter to children and to other equines alike. He was a teacher always being patient with his people, always willing. We thought we were taking care of him, but in reality he was taking care of us. His absence has left an emptiness in our hearts.
We would like to think he was instrumental in steering IMEC in the direction it is today with his "can do" attitude and all he contributed to this club. And whether he knew it or not he was an amazing friend and will be terribly missed by all who knew and loved him. I know he is running free in fields of lush grass and is not in pain anymore but his presence is very much missed each and everyday. We are so blessed to have had him in our lives. His beautiful eyes are a glow once more....

Lisa will be sadly missed by the Indiana Miniature Equine Club members, as she was a tremendous supporter, exhibitor, and worker for many years. Lisa loved to show her miniatures and her favorite classes included halter, adult costume, and driving. Her smile was beautiful, and her dedication to her friends and family was evident always. Lisa loved life, and she was the happiest when everyone around her was happy too! Lisa and Margaret’s involvement in IMEC will be treasured always…Thank you Lisa for all of the lives you touched!
