No news is good news when it comes to Barbaro

From all reports, Barbaro is still doing well and continues to improve.

Here's an excerpt from an article on bloodhorse.com
"Barbaro is doing very well and seems perfectly content spending his holiday weekend at New Bolton Center receiving abundant carrots, apples and veterinary attention," said Corinne Sweeney, executive director at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center.

And this article states:

Barbaro has been fitted with a special shoe on his left hoof. The three-part, glue-on shoe was designed and patented by Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine and helps prevent laminitis, a life-threatening infection that can occur when a horse puts too much weight on its uninjured legs. The shoe extends the length of the left hind foot to match the length of the cast on his right foot.

And in this article from the Sun, a reporter answers some of his readers questions about Barbaro and his injury.

This article discusses the pony herd that is kept at the New Bolton Center. The purpose is for research on equine behavior. Very interesting article.
