Sereno was so beautiful, moreover, that many people had offered to buy the white stallion. But there was no way Figueiredo was going to let his favorite horse go. “[He] always refused to sell him,” Figueiredo’s brother Wando de Lima told the Daily Mail in January 2017.
“Wagner’s life was this horse,” de Lima continued. “He had a passion and a great love for him. Sometimes he would even stop buying things for himself to make sure he could afford to buy horse feed.”
It’s safe to say, then, that Figueiredo and Sereno were completely inseparable. However, their beautiful relationship was sadly cut short when Figueiredo was involved in a motorcycle accident on New Year’s Day 2017. He had been riding his bike along the beach when he lost control.
