Barbaro Takes Turn for the Worse

Well, it looks like Mrs. NBS will not be going with us to Keeneland ever again.  She was furious about this situation before.  Wait until she hears this: A severe infection has set in Barbaro's right hind leg, and 80% of the hoof has been removed.

The prognosis is not good.  They are planning on keeping him alive for now, and putting him down if he is in pain.  Sad news.

UPDATE: Barbaro is reportedly doing better today.
