Jeanne, on Mims Retirement Facebook, November 27, 2013:

Today, I am remembering how much Ms. Stalwart loved the snow. On mornings like this her typically stoic demeanor would disappear. She would charge out of the barn with reckless abandon, bucking, rearing then crashing to the ground to roll. As long as the snow covered the ground, she’d prance about, wild and wonderful.

If you are lucky enough to have snow today, get out and play, if only for a moment. In honor of this beautiful mare.
