Special K was just that. Last week, however, the therapeutic horse who worked with special education students for the past five years as part of the Galt Horse Assisted Learning Enrichment Program, or GALEP, was euthanized due to a tumor. He was 27.

Special K, or “K” as the program’s volunteers called him, was a retired champion roping horse found by Chris McParland, GALEP therapeutic instructor. A retired couple had sold their country property in Acampo and needed a home for him, so he went to stay with Dick and Karen Schauer, Galt Joint Union Elementary School District’s superintendent, to become part of GALEP.
