Equine Obituary-Shakin’ For Cash





On Sunday, Sept 29, 2013, WC Shakin’ For Cash was humanely laid to rest following an unexpected bout with colic.  The previous week emergency colic surgery had been performed at Mississippi State Veterinary College where doctors removed a large mass weighing 3.8 pounds in her intestine.  The strong mare never recovered from this intense procedure.  Belle as she was affectionately known was the 12-Year-Old gray mare who was owned and loved by Kimble and Madeline Tew of Waynesboro, Miss.

Foaled on October 6, 2001, to James Elliott of Tuscumbia, Ala., she was by Lined With Cash and out of Shakers Fashion Star.  Belle began her training under the direction of Sonny Holt winning her first blue at Jackson Charity Horse Show in the Amateur Two-Year-Old class with Lee McGartland.  It was later during her Four-Year-Old season that Shakin’ For Cash caught the eye of Kimble and Madeline Tew where she was under the direction of Jimmy McConnell and the Formac Stables training team of Union City, Tenn. 

Under the Tews' ownership the talented mare with a huge heart was shown many times capturing wins in the Open and Amateur divisions at popular shows such as; The Mississippi Charity, The Delta Fall Classic, The Gum Tree Classic, Germantown Charity, Parkers’ Crossroads, Billy M. Cary Memorial, West Tennessee Strawberry Festival also a World Championship title in the Novice Lady Riders on Novice Mares or Geldings at the 2010 Celebration as well as a Reserve World Championship title in the Elite Ladies class in 2009.  Belle was a great ambassador for the breed and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
