Owner Patty Stadt said the 15-year-old Quarter Horse named Bo had been part of the State Fair's Mounted Patrol for 10 years.

Stadt said she and her husband found Bo dead about 5:30 a.m. Saturday in the pasture where he was left to graze overnight with their other horse. Stadt estimated that the horse was killed sometime after 11 Friday night.
