   Too Sleepy To Zip Fun Facts


As the industry leader in shock wave therapy, PulseVet is often given the opportunity to work with some of the top vets, owners, and horses in the world.  Champion stallion, Too Sleepy To Zip is one such example.

Too Sleepy To Zip has had positive results from PulseVet’s VersaTron, “We believe using the VersaTron shock wave therapy regularly during breeding season has certainly helped keep Too Sleepy To Zip happy and comfortable.” 

His owners at BSB Quarter Horses, Shelley & Kim Donovan, and Hedy Levin, were kind enough to share some facts about him:

“We consider ourselves extremely fortunate, spending our lives caring for and raising many of the best horses in the industry. We treat your great mares like family here and sincerely appreciate your trust in us.  We believe Too Sleepy To Zip is our “once in a lifetime horse.” His many accomplishments still take our breath away.  He still makes the hair on our arms stand up, and we are still in awe of him, and will be forever grateful to share our lives with this very special horse we call Ernie.  He has helped make our dreams come true. We always say THE PROOF IS IN THE KIDS!”
