My Beautiful Pepsi


Apologies for not being around at the moment but this has been a very sad week for me. Sadly, last Sunday evening I had to make the heart wrenching decision to have my horse Pepsi put to sleep; she had reached the grand old age of 33. I called the vet as she was in distress and couldn't get up in the field. Her head was telling her to fight but her heart and body were just too weak. I couldn't see her suffer any longer and the vet said there was nothing more that could be done; I was with her when she slept away. She had been part of my family for the last 23 years. I grew up with Pepsi, and we shared many happy moments together. She was a beautiful and kind horse and will be sadly missed by all of us. Here are a few pictures of her as I'd like to remember her...
