Dan Creyts, a local Belgian horse breeder, resides near East Lansing and is also the chairman of the Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show. In 2000, he donated two pregnant Belgian mares, Greta and Flora, to the Michigan State University draft horse program. The fillies, MSU Millennium and MSU Memory were sold as yearlings to make sure that the program would continue.
