Poor Barbaro...

The Kentucky Derby winner had to be euthanized today. I know that in the grand scheme of things, this isn't important news, but I love horses, and Barbaro was something special. I cheered when he won the Derby, and cried when he fell at Preakness. I really thought he was going to make it, and have a long, happy horse life, making little Barbaros along the way. It wasn't to be. He just had too many complications and too much pain.

This makes my cry. :^( I'd been following his progress on the Penn State website all along, and it looked for a while like he'd be all right.

What a fantastic horse, who brought so much joy to so many. He will be very missed, but dearly remembered.

That really sucks. Things seemed to look up for Barbero so many times, but there were also many complications. He was a true fighter to the very end, and it's a sad day that the fight had to end this way. :(
