TT: Peppy San Badger- Pandora

You ready guys? It's my turn!
It's another round of throwback Thursday lineage style. This time we are taking a look at a very well known horse in the cutting industry: Peppy San Badger.
Nice looking guy if you ask me.
Peppy San Badger is Lil Badbadger's great grandpa. Born in 1974, "Little Peppy" was a feisty sorrel stallion by Mr. San Peppy and out of Sugar Badger. When he was a young guy learning the ropes, he came down with distemper, which put a stop to his training for a while. It took him a while to heal, but once he did, he turned into a fine looking colt.
Imma cut you cow.
A member of the NCHA Hall of Fame, Little Peppy won the NCHA Futurity in 1977 and the Derby in 1978, was reserve world champion in 1980, and won the 1981 NCHA Finals. Trained by Buster Welch, his total earnings topped $172,710.

In 19 seasons, Peppy San Badger sired 2,325 AQHA registered foals that have earned more than 7,200 points in all divisions, and won more than $25 million. At the Snaffle Bit Futurity, four of the top 10 open horses were by sons of Peppy San Badger. At the NCHA Futurity, four of the top 20 finalists in the open and non pro were by Little Peppy sons.
Awww, sweet old man face!

Peppy San Badger was euthanized July 8, 2005, at 31 years of age and was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2008.
Just give me a damn cow like my grandpa.
That's my girl!
