Barbaro updated

Good news, he has survived his surgery. He recovered well from anaesthesia and is standing on all four legs . He broke his cannon bone, a sesamoid and a front pastern, if not for his jockey pulling him up so quickly he would have died on the racetrack.
The surgeon admitted he had never done this surgery before, not because of lack of experience but because almost always horses are euthanized. So, thank you to the wonderful owners of Barbaro who chose to spend his Kentucky Derby earnings saving his life.

I hope he will go on to have beautiful babies.

Little Britain marathon!
Almost as good as last year....almost.
