March 11, 2012 was a sad day as we lost a beloved horse, best friend and confidant. Peppy Lou was fighting a bout of colic and in her advanced age it was just too much for her. Peppy touched a lot of people during her 34 years on earth. She was many things to many children. She was a championship barrel racer, she was a therapist for children with special needs and adults with emotional challenges. She was a teacher, a pillow for tears, a second mother for my son and a soul mate. Losing Peppy has left a huge hole in our lives and she will never be forgotten.
