Paint Me Zippo Dead

For those who know of Paint Me Zippo, a very famous paint pleasure horse and stallion, he died today at the age of 21. What I have heard is that he had a seizure in the breeding shed and they called the vet and before the vet got there Paint Me Zippo had another seizure and died. I'm very sad because it's another great paint lost but glad there are many foals of his to carry on his name. I myself have two grandchildren of Paint Me Zippo and love them! So I thought I would carry on the sad news to you guys. Any comments or storys you have about him, please post them! :(

Aw thanks! Its good to be back. I have had the busyest winter! Between riding team and school and prepping for show season, I've been busy. But show season just started so Im excited!

It is terribly sad!! He was a simply gorgeous horse and great stud too.

Oh that is TERRIBLE! And not even all that ancient.

Did he cover any mares this year? Just wondering how many would be in his last foal crop.

:( That is so sad. Thank you for sharing.

Im not sure. I woyld think so since its pretty late in the season and he died in the bredding shed being collected. I hope something comes out of his last foal crop! No problem I just thought everyone should know!

That's horrible. I'm so sorry to all of the paint breeders out there, and of course the horse himself. I really hate when horses have bad deaths, rather then just be put down.
