Equine Obituary- Pride's Miss Doodle



The great mare, Pride’s Miss Doodle, was humanely put to rest on Monday, September 25 after suffering a fatal accident.  She was owned and loved by Lou, Alicia, Jenna and Jesse Goecker, of Easley, South Carolina and trained by Randy Lollis of Honea Path, SC.  She was eighteen (18) years old and in foal to Out On Parole.  Miss Doodle enjoyed a successful show career and won multi state high point championships in North and South Carolina. Doodle was raised by the late, Jack Morgan in Candler, North Carolina and started as a Two Year old by Randy Lollis. She was showed in amateur competition by Pat Lollis, Lou, Alicia, Jenna and Jesse Goecker and Tammy Farmer.  Randy Lollis also showed Doodle in open competition. Many times, she carried us on blue ribbon rides and she loved every minute of the show ring.  She was a horse full of love, heart and soul.  Lou and Alicia’s daughters, Jenna and Jesse, grew up showing Doodle.  They were eight (8) and ten (10) years old when they started showing Doodle in 1996 and enjoyed numerous blue ribbons and state championships.  Miss Doodle taught Alicia, Jenna and Jesse how to ride Tennessee Walking Horses. She was influential in their love for this great breed. Doodle was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed by her family and fans.
