    Barbaro Update

    For those who are interested, I thought I'd bring the Barbaro Updates to Goldenskates until FSU is up and running again.

    Apparently, Sunday night was a good night for him. He's still doing well, with stable vital signs. I'll keep an eye on anything that changes.


    Good Horse... ( sad to see there's no Saint smilie )

    Thanks for bringing over the Barbaro updates. I know there are some GS posters who are fans of horse racing, so I think (hope) there will be interest here as well.

    Good Horse

    That's great. I've been watching him since the Preakness. He's overcome so much - I just hope he makes it all the way back. {fingers crossed}

    I feel kind of close to Barbaro right now - I have been sick for about two months. I hope he pulls through. Thanks for the update.

    This came up out of curiosity, ad I hate to see any animal suffer - pain is relative.
    I heard that the proceeds from the ultimate mint Julep ($1000) served at the Kentucky Derby goes to the retired hoses foundation - or something along those lines?

    That's good! I thought things were probably fine, since there haven't been any updates on the news here.

    Ladskater, I hope you feel better soon.

    Ladskater: so sorry to hear you have been sick for all that time. I hope you are recovering and feeling better.

    Barbaro had a "comfy night" and slept well last night. He's still in stable but serious condition.


    Good Horse...

    Glad to hear Barbaro is still "hanging in there." I hope there is no pain for the guy.

    Here is today's update from NBC:

    He had his Left Hind bandage changed yesterday and it looks as good as can be expected. Also, his bloodwork looks good too.

    Good Horse.....
