This needed to be bumped up.

Mekayla thanks so much for doing all that you and your mom have done to get this fundraiser started for Linda and her family.

I know I have 2 girls getting pledges for a show today.

I have tried to write several times to tell all of you [especially Makayla] how much you all mean to me but everytime I look at this I start to cry because you have ALL been so wonderful. All I can say is thank you so very much. Love, Linda

Well I agree thsi is a wonderful idea and thank Makayla for doing this. I was at a show yesterday (so didn't register in advance) but I came home with 40 ribbons, including 3 PURPLE ONES!!! I had no idea that purple ribbons were for pancreatic cancer awareness, but I do now, and those ribbons are extra special and will remind me of Linda!!! Actually her farrier work and her comments on my horses probably helped me to win those ribbons, so thanks Linda!!!

I will make a donation based on that haul!!

Hey! For those of us who don't know (hoping I'm not the only one) can someone shed some light on who Linda is and what her situation is?

Thanks!!!!

Linda is forum member (Fred) who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She is well known in the miniature horse world winning many championships at a national level. But more importantly, she is a good friend to many, a great wife and terrific mom.

Refer to the Back Porch: http://www.miniaturehorsetalk.com/index.php?showtopic=95478 to learn more.

We are all keeping her in our thoughts and prayers.

Linda is "Fred" here on the forum. See her post above and a longer thread on the Back Porch at

Thread about Linda on the Back Porch

You can also see recent photos of her and Fred (her horse) at a NEMHS show on this thread:

Recent photos of Linda and Fred on the Forum

Linda was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, as you will find out if you read the long thread on the Back Porch. There are lots of us praying for her!!! I hear she was at another show today, so maybe we will hear about that....

Sue - I don't even know you but obviously we think alike and posted at the same time!!

Makayla, Matt, Karen, Jen and I collaborated today on all the details for the show fundraiser. It is coming along great! We have a class list, judge, and most of the details settled. We just need to set a date which is dependent on the facility we use. We are trying to get a location in Southern NH area so that it is equal distance to the majority of people that would be attending.

We should have the details out soon! We hope a lot of people can attend. It should be a really fun day and it is for the BEST cause ever!!!!

I had two farms specifically in mind to host the show..... One STILL hasn't got back to me, and the other has an event on the 14th that they need to set up for. Today, I sent out a mass email to a ton of local farms with indoors, hoping to get a response from that, we'll see. If anyone knows of a good place in the seacoast area, let one of us know, I should specify with an indoor. I have pretty much raked all the local listings but it's possible I missed one....
