DUAL PEPPY RECEIVING LASER THERAPY ON STEM CELLS
THE STALLION’S NUTRITION IS BEING MANAGED AS WELL AS MEDICAL ISSUES

Dual Peppy at the Blue Rose Ranch in Colorado. Photo was taken in July 2016.
There has been some controversy about the movement of Dual Peppy to the Babcock Ranch in Sanger, Texas. However, after talking with Patricia Woodrick, who lives close to the Babcock Ranch and visits with the stallion daily, I feel Dual Peppy is not only getting help but the latest and best help that a horse can get. Since Woodrick has become involved in the stallion’s recovery, I felt the public needed to know who she is and what she is doing for Dual Peppy – free of charge.. She has headed several studies including the effects of laser therapy on stem cells and is currently working on a study for a new equine therapy device using lixels instead of pixels to increase the delivery of photon magnetic wave therapy.
According to Woodrick, the stallion’s loss of weight and muscle is tragic and his current condition is not indicative of the pictures taken when he left Blue Rose Ranch in July. She said that Jim Babcock reached out to her to provide Dual Peppy every opportunity for recovery that is available.
Woodrick knows about this kind of trauma as she has experienced the same type of trauma in her own health resulting in her own body clinically eating itself, “0” fat content and a huge percentage of muscle loss. She states that because she’s human, she has her own ability to seek help and Dual Peppy now has someone who is taking care of the same critical medial issues that end the lives of people and animals alike.
Woodrick also addresses nutrition, saying “His nutrition has to be managed as much as his medical issues. Adding full body class IV therapy treatment will trigger the natural component of his body to stimulate stem cell production, accelerate tissue and muscle regeneration in addition to providing pain relief.”
Following is the full letter from Patricia Woodrick:
You may remember me from many years ago. Due to some injuries, I no longer show, train or breed pleasure horses.
I have been very involved in equine therapy working first as a salesperson and educator for major therapy manufacturers of equine medical therapy devices, including modalities such as *photon, acoustic wave, sound wave, and magnetic wave therapy. Basically laser, shock wave, ultrasound and magnetic stimulation.
I also have headed several studies that have included the effects of laser therapy on stem cells and I am currently working on a study for a new equine therapy device using lixels instead of pixels to increase the delivery of photon therapy. It’s been really interesting and a growing educational experience.
I have become involved with Dual Peppy’s recovery. I am aware of some of the controversy about his move to the Babcock ranch. I posted on the Blue Rose Ranch Horse Rescue and adoption page about Dual Peppy’s condition and treatment. There are two different posts. I had two thoughts I wanted the public to understand. I wish I would have combined them.
This horse has a very long way to full recovery- if that is possible. His current condition is not indicative of the pictures taken when he left Blue Rose Ranch. They should be commended for his care and I only wish he was in the same health as the pictures represent.
His care after his departure from Blue Rose Ranch and Horse rescue and before he arrived at Jim Babcock’s ranch early this month is what should be questioned by those who are so worried about the care Jim Babcock is providing for this animal!
The regression that has taken place in just his weight and muscle loss is tragic.
Jim Babcock reached out to me to provide this animal EVERY opportunity for recovery available. As I said in my second post on Blue Rose’s Facebook page, I have experienced such trauma in my own health, resulting in my own body clinically eating itself, a “0” fat content, huge percentage of muscle loss and the decrease of my T level to near non existence!
Luckily I am human and have my own ability to seek help. Luckily, Dual Peppy has someone who is taking care of the same critical medical issues that end the lives of people and animals alike!
There are many technical aspects of the treatments Dual Peppy is receiving. The atrophy of his muscles create body pain. It’s a vicious cycle. Doctors tell you “protein, protein, protein.”
For Dual Peppy, too much is as dangerous as not enough. His nutrition has to be managed as much as his medical issues. Adding full body class IV therapy treatment will trigger the natural components of his body to stimulate stem cell production, accelerate tissue and muscle regeneration In addition to providing pain relief.
Everyone should know that this amazing animal survived because he had the will and the heart to live. If he had not been rescued, it would not have been enough.
The intervention of all involved should be commended. Everyone should know that the story has not ended and his fight is not over yet. For those concerned, knowing if this animal will ever breed again is a question that will not and cannot be answered in the near future.
The main concern at the Babcock Ranch is the comfort, care, dignity and recovery of this unique, magnificent animal.
I have been involved in many aspects of the horse industry. I am proud that it has brought me to a place of involvement, which allows me to be a part of his recovery and life.
Thank you for your time and warmest regards.
It’s been a very long time.
Photon therapy: A type of radiation therapy that uses x-rays or gamma rays that come from a special machine called a linear accelerator (linac). The radiation dose is delivered at the surface of the body and goes into the tumor and through the body. Photon beam radiation therapy is different from proton beam therapy.
