The worldwide spreading of news online and across social media is a real concern, especially when facts are not checked and items are presented without having the full picture of all the different aspects at play in any particular situation.

The Glock’s Horse Performance Center reported the passing of the Jazz son Glock’s Tango. The 18 year old stallion who rose to fame under Glock rider Hans Peter Minderhoud had suffered from a chronic illness which had been treated by specialists for an extended time, but now the treating veterinarian advised to spare the KWPN stallion further suffering. “He was good natured yet cheeky at the same time. He was a horse with a great personality and very special for me, because he was the horse who accompanied me from when I embarked on self employment,” Hans Peter Minderhoud states.

Saudi Arabian jumper Abdullah Al Sharbatly also announced the passing of his top Grand Prix horse Crazy Quick. The Oldenburg stallion succumbed to colic, despite the best and speedy efforts of the veterinarian hospital. The Chacco-Blue son celebrated many successes under Al Sharbatly, who took over the reins from Polish Jaroslaw Skrzyczynski, and passed far too soon at the age of 13.
