Pepinics Master (1989 – 2017)

Even when they grow old, we are still surprised when one of the legends in our horse world dies. Luckily, Pepinics Master got to sire a good number of nice individuals who will no doubt carry his genes on into the future.

They say if we are lucky that once in a lifetime we will get a great horse. Ed & Connie  got a really great horse. Pepinics Master also got a great home and great life in return.  We know that their love and respect for this stallion extended beyond his performance and reproductive successes. Ed’s voice would change when he spoke of him. He takes great pride and interest in the successes of all of this great sire’s offspring and their owners and trainers.  Our sympathy to Myterra Ranch on this loss.

Visit the Myterra Ranch website home page to view the announcement and view a slide show of Pepinics Master from last winter.

You can view his stallion page on the Myterra website including links to his Lifetime Performance Report and Offspring Performance.
