Cabana Boy ~ Goodbye to a Champion

Hilltop News Cabana Boy ~ Goodbye To A Champion Return to All Hilltop Archives >>> It is with great sadness that Jane MacElree and Hilltop Farm share the news that on Monday, August 23rd Cabana Boy was humanely euthanized following a catastrophic injury while in turnout.  Cabana Boy’s well-being, comfort, and quality of life were the focus of each discussion and decision and a team of veterinarians was consulted to discuss all possible options and outcomes. The consummate showman with a larger than life personality, Cabana had the unique ability to draw fans wherever he went.  Bred by Doug and Shannon Langer of Wisconsin, Cabana Boy was sired by Hilltop Farm’s stallion Contucci and out of Britania (Bordeaux-Weltmeyer).  Hilltop Farm acquired Cabana Boy early in his yearling year and since then Cabana Boy has been unstoppable in his accomplishments.
