Pepé, a nine year old Tennessee Walker, is the class clown of the barn. It’s hard to imagine being gloomy for too long in the presence of this slapstick comedian who flaps his lips, tosses his head, and wags his long tongue from side to side, while stomping his hooves. He crosses his legs, contrary to what horses usually do, and when he plays he can jumps straight up in the air, all four hooves aloft. He’s been observed standing with his front hooves on fence rails. He is affectionate and loves attention. He’s clever enough to open the stall door, reminiscent of that marvelous t.v. comedian horse, Mr. Ed. Pepé works well with riders who have an animated form of autism. His boisterous nature draws the rider’s attention and has a calming effect, enabling the rider to focus and concentrate. Pepé teaches a sense of humor.
