Lomitas - His Story

The life of the german thoroughbred called LOMITAS had it all: Class, courage, talent, but also crime, highs and lows. Even horse whisperer Monty Roberts had to conquer Lomitas' claustrophobic problems.

1992 Lomitas was the victim of a blackmail attempt, with a threat to kill him if a demand for money was not met. To prove the point, he was poisoned.
