    I just read about that. I think they did their best for him and it was time to let go.

        Just reading about it from you. What a shame. They did all they could. He suffered in the long run. It is whats best. Cant do one surgery after another. Poor horse to undergo all that pain.

            It has been such a long difficult road for him. It's sad that it had to end this way.

              So sad about the outcome, I was hopeful.

              Just watching old video of him today though, he appeared as though every step caused him great pain.

              RIP beautiful Barbaro.

                I hadn't heard about him being put down until I read this post...So sad after all he's been thru, but it was definitely time for the decision to be made. Like the article says, he had a lot of good days. What a great life this horse had!

                    Such a sad end for such a magnificent horse. Laminitis is just horrible. I lost my favorite mare to it many years ago, and it's a tough thing to watch a horse go through it.

                      He didn't have a good quality of life anymore - he was suffering. It was time. What a big heart he had though!
                      RIP - Run fast and free beautiful baby!

                        That's very sad news. I was really hoping for the longest time that he would recover fully and have a happy, painfree life. He was such a beautiful horse. At least he's at rest and in no more pain. Sad it turned out this way, though.

                          Interestingly, I really never watch the horse races, but I was watching the day that horse's leg broke. I just happened to sit down and think, "Horses! I love watching horses run, I'm going to watch the races."

                          It broke my heart to see that he was struggling with healing. I just heard the news this morning that things were rough but that he was doing well. Now he's been euthanized. How sad. He was a beautiful boy.

                          RIP Barbaro!

                              That was heartbreaking to watch when the original injury occured. Bless his heart he was being so brave and good! The only thing that may be a positive (if that is the right word) is that it seems like Barbarino did much better w/this injury and treatment than other horses in the past have. What I am trying to say is that he imay have provided another step in veternary medicine that can benefit future injuries to other horses. I don't know much about horses, but this was my "take" when I was watching the news. I am glad he is out of pain and running free again.
