Louie was trained from an early age in dressage. He was retired from his working life and until recently enjoyed going out on trail rides. He had had some significant health problems, including Lyme disease and Cushings disease but was doing well on his special diet.
Louie was most of his life the lower man on the totem pole. When he arrived at Star Gazing Farm, he saw that the crew here was a pushover, and so for a long time was the top man, despite his old man status. His best buddy was Jean Claude the llama.
