I was just thinking about all of the famous horses that have been euthanized, in some freak accidents. How often is it that a famous horse (who is undoubtedly insured for tons of $$$) just dies from old age? Not many. In fact, I've only heard of one - and that was Peppy San Badger himself.
Just think about it for a second; these horses who are held in high regard, with their fairy tale stories ending in undue tragedy. Horses that are cared for to the highest, in the best conditions possible. And in an instant, they're gone.
I'm not saying everyone who's lost a famous horse is trying to be corrupt, but I just wanted to hear answers from others on this question. Do you think that some horses have died, in order for the owners to cash in?
I think that, sure, some of them love their horses, but for just as many that cherish them - there's always someone looking for a quick buck. Or maybe it's just that I'm noticing it in prominent horses more-so because news is made of it? ... I don't know, just something to think about.
