  1. After reading the article about HENRY THE HAWK, a show horse, the scandal surrounding his untimely death, and I should say “murdered” by a hit man and ordered by a rich man, it makes me seriously question the cause of death to the horses that are listed above as having been found dead in their stall, including BARQUEEN, a two year old, dead in her stall. The cause of death is listed as “unknown, suspect injury from fall” so it isn’t exactly far-fetched to suspect the possibility that she could have been killed on purpose. I don’t know. Who knows for sure when the causes of death listed are so vague???
