This is Pip, or Pipalish, sometimes Pipalicious, and often Pipaliciousness!

One of my proudest moments was taking part in the 100 horses parade on Anzac day in Alexandra. This was a commemoration of the huge part horses played in the war.

He was perfectly behaved even when the bagpipes struck up right behind us and he just epitomizes the handsome hero in this shot.

We are raising our granddaughter and she wanted to barrel race him. He tried so hard even though it wasn't his forte and he took such good care of her. The photo is from the Christmas meeting last year.

Pip died earlier this year, he was 26, leaving behind his old buddy Cracker aged 30.

He has left a huge hole in all of our lives, including Minnie our pet cow and Pip's amour (haha don't ask!)

Cracker would appreciate a bag of extra special food this winter.
