Its a slow but sad news day...

Barbaro was put down today..but in order to lighten your spirits..here is a video of over 100 horses that were saved last year in the Netherlands. It took a few women to figure it out..the men were no help..as usual.

Barbaro finally lost out? Man, too bad. Not one mention of this anywhere at CNN.com.

They kept that poor horse alive for 8 months..finally he was in constant pain and his front hooves had laminitis..poor thing. In heaven he is running and playing..at least that is what i hear about heaven..dunno for sure :P

Thanks Bake..I thought so too.

True Dusty. I know they wanted to see if Barbaro was up to mating and legacy. I don't know how much of the decision making by the Jacksons was connected to greed, but I certainly hope none of the vet's judgments were. If so, poor horse. Regardless, RIP Barbaro.

I do think greed was part of it SR..but as you say..hopefully the vet was only concerned about the quality of the horses' life.

cheap shot at the men, dusty. i wasn't a fan but i bet ol' Ronnie Regan woulda been like, "wtf? where is the problem? just go rustle them over here..." The problem is they don't have any cowboys over there!

It was a cheap shot..but I meant it tongue in cheek Kurt. I love men..most of them anyway :)
