LOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER announced on their website the loss of GLOCK’s Zonik.
We mourn the loss of GLOCK’s Zonik
It is so unbelievable and so unreal. We are in deep shock, full of grief and horror.
We have lost our wonderful stallion, this exceptional sire, our sporting partner: GLOCK’s Zonik. He was our equine friend and, at the same time, one of our most important breeding and competition stallions.
Zonik became lame shortly before CHIO Rotterdam and, following suspicion of a problem with a hoof, thorough examination led to diagnosis of an injury.
We decided to have him operated upon and, to this end, transported him to Germany to what is indeed one of the most renowned equine veterinary clinics. The operation on GLOCK’s Zonik took place there on 13 July 2021. The operation went well but, in the recovery box, Zonik injured himself so badly that we could only put him out of his misery. He had broken both of his hind legs.
“We’re lost for words right now. We are deeply saddened and shaken to the core by the loss of our great equine friend, GLOCK’s Zonik. He still had such a bright future ahead of him, but it was not to be,” were the tearful comments of Hans Peter, Edward and Nicole. “Beloved, great friend, rest in peace and shine like a star, because that is what you were; a star, truly a king. We will always have you in our hearts and never forget you. Thanks for having had you in our care, courtesy of Kathrin and Gaston Glock. Thank you for having allowed us to be part of your life. It was a privilege and a blessing. Now we have to carry on without you, and that is hard, very hard…”
Rest in peace, dear Zonikie; gallop over the rainbow meadows.
We miss you.
