Michael Owen's Love For His Horse Was True And Beautiful And Terribly Sad

Michael Owen's Love For His Horse Was True And Beautiful And Terribly Sad
By Donny Mahoney Updated

If you judge him only by his uninspiring punditry and his total and utter disinterest in cinema, Michael Owen wouldn't seem like the most emotional guy in the planet. So that's why we were shocked and inspired to see Michael Owen's outpouring of grief to Brown Panther after the horse was put down yesterday.

Owen described the day as the saddest in his life, and it's clear in this video he saw Brown Panther as much more than a four-legged money-making creature. "I love you so much," he says twice, before patting the horse a few times. There is a caricature in the media of Owen as something like an android, spouting punditry cliches as if they were autogenerated by Twitter search terms, but his relationship with Brown Panther, both in good times and bad, provided a different perspective on the striker. He loved that horse.
