AQHA/APHA Stallion Hes Suddenly Famous Passes Away
Losing an animal is every owner’s worst nightmare, and it is never easy when one is suddenly taken. On May 23, Hes Suddenly Famous was involved in a fatal trailer accident. The chestnut stallion was 16 years old when he passed away, and had sired multiple point earners and Western Pleasure and Longe Line Champions. “Famous” was standing in Peterson, IA with Tom Weber Performance Horses. He was by A Sudden Impulse out of Frame My Brick.
“What we liked best was the great minded offspring he produced,” shares owner Rebecca Mauer, who owned Famous’ namesake farm Famous Horse Farm in Iowa. “He was always glad to see us, and he seemed to remember Barron Knaus when he saw him.” Barron and Famous won a Reserve Championship in Western Pleasure together, one of Famous’ two Reserve Champions. The stallion was previously owned by JR Reichert/Barron Knaus.
Our hearts go out to the Mauer family, and all of those whose lives were touched by Famous. He will be missed by many.
