Dreadhead Cowboy's horse is fine

I just wanted to share this update with you all, if you're at all concerned about the condition of his horse who authorities suggested could be euthanized due to her grave condition. Here's what Sun-Times' Michael Sneed states in her column
Where is NuNu?

Sneed has learned the injured horse nearly ridden to death by the “Dread Head Cowboy” in an anti-violence protest on the Dan Ryan Expressway, is safely on the mend and on her way to recovery since being moved to a horse farm in the south suburbs.

“She’s rallied,” said Ald. Ray Lopez (15th), a strong advocate of humane animal care who works closely with the city’s Animal Care and Control Department.

“But I’m told it should never be ridden again,” he said.
Also and this is more shocking:
But Sneed also hears Hollingsworth — who has been seen at protests riding horses around the city this summer — was “already on the city’s Animal Care radar months ago for riding a horse near the expressway,” Lopez said.

“This is not the first time,” Lopez said, even before Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office tapped the cowboy to do outreach for the U.S. Census. “We had videos and pictures of him multiple times before the mayor hired him to be her census outreach person/cowboy.

“We were trying to find out where he lived before the mayor hired him,” said Lopez, who has frequently sparred with Lightfoot during her administration. “We were actually on the hunt for him due to concern about how his horse was being kept.”

The city might send an invoice for the cost of NuNu’s care to Hollingsworth. A GoFundMe Hollingsworth launched earlier this year — with the goal of opening a horse barn in the city — has raised more than $88,000 as of Friday, with many donations pouring in since his highway ride.

I wanted to share this with you from 2nd City Cop. They were on the case of a horse being kept in an Englewood backyard. I wonder if Ald. Lopez had this on his radar.

Sneed notes that Hollingsworth keeps his other horses at a farm in Dyer, Indiana


  1. The Englewood horse was owned by Leo Beltran, a Hispanic man. Ald. Lopez (15) was involved with that case. Maybe, Ald. Coleman (16) was too. ತ_ತ

    Was Lopez involved with Nunu? ಠ_ಠ

  2. Adam Hollingsworth stood on his horses too. ಠ︵ಠ
