Papa's John Grey (aka Lolly Pop)
2002 - 2011
|IN LOVING MEMORY OF PAPA’S JOHN GREY
On December 4th, 2010 at 3pm at Rocky Hill Stables in Cusseta, Al, Papa’s John Grey was
Called to heaven. At feed time she was found not to be feeling well, Dr. Charles Harris
came right out to check on her. After the check up , she was treated and responded to the
treatment . Slightly before he arrived back at 3:30pm to recheck her she had a
seizure and passed away.
This beautiful 9 year old grey mare was bred, raised and owned by Joe and Vicki
Tittle of Rocky Hill Stables in Cusseta, Al. She was by Another Grey John and Counselor’s
Wounded Heart. She was Vicki's Trail Pleasure Horse and personal horse.
Lolly Pop , as she was known at the barn and all her friends and fans was the 2010 Model , Trail
Pleasure, Youth Trail Pleasure and High Point Pleasure Horse of the Year for the Georgia
Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association.
In her lifetime Lolly Pop, claimed 4th place 3 Year Old Plantation at the Tennessee walking horse
Futurity in Shellbyville, TN; the Alabama State 3 Year Old Plantation Futurity Champion and had over 30
career wins and over 100 top 5 finishes in the state of Georgia alone. Lolly Pop was a part of our family
and at every show someone would try and buy her .She was not for sale and lived her life as a champion
and a teacher. Anyone who could ride a horse could ride her. She was a teacher to all the children that
came to our barn and at the show. She was natural as she walked and shaked everyday of her life. Lolly Pop
will be forever remembered by Joe, Vicki, Melissa and Trent and all her friends at the barn and horse
shows. We will continue to proudly raise and show her half brothers and sisters. As her full sister, John
Grey’s Last Edition will continue her bloodline, her mother Counselor’s Wounded Heart will continue to
produce wonderful babies as PAPA’S JOHN GREY and HE’S A MILLION DOLLAR BABY. And though she is
gone now, her legacy will remain and she will walk-on in the hearts of those who knew her, forever.
She was just an amazing horse. She was amazingly talented. She gave her heart and soul everyday to
whoever rode and showed her, whether it be kids or adults, she was the most perfect horse.
Everyone always fussed over who was going to ride her either at the barn or at the shows.
Someday, God willing we will show her full sister, but it will never
be the same as with Lolly Pop . She was a dream to own, to ride and to show. She has left her hoof prints
on many hearts. God only knows how hard it is going to be to go to the barn and not see her there.
We will meet her at Rainbow Bridge one day.
