Cheetah (Tony from 'Django Unchained') (Horse)

Adopted Dec 2008

Jamie Foxx has a pet horse named Cheetah that he got in 2008 as a birthday present. In a clear case of Hollywood nepotism, Cheetah played Foxx’s horse named Tony in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Nepotism aside, with Django’s horse playing such a large role in the film, their relationship made filming that much smoother.

About four and a half years ago, I got a horse for my birthday and I started riding. And the next thing you know, I run into this cinematic genius, I call him, ‘Quentin Tarantino.’ He says he has a Western and I said, “Well, I happen to have my own horse.” And then, what even became more magical is that I was practicing on my horse, and now my horse is actually in the movie, so my horse, Cheetah, is who I ride.
