"The AQHA world will miss this beautiful mare and her contribution to the show world is without question," owner, Jay McLennan states.
GoHorseShow is sad to report that one of the all-time great mares, Dont Skip Ms Hotrod, fondly known by many as "Oprah," was euthanized on Tuesday due to complications associated with old age. The gorgeous black mare was 19. Her striking looks, movement and consistency in the show pen earned her a well-deserved spot in the National Snaffle Bit Futurity Hall of Fame in 2006.
