Rest in Peace, Barbaro

I don't want to get into all my views on the racing industry. I just wanted to take a moment to say good bye to that beautiful horse; he never gave up, his owners never gave up, but somethings aren't meant to be.

I watched the Preakness and I started crying when I watched his leg break and I've been rooting for him to pull through ever since.

I was saddened yesterday as well when I saw the news. I'm just comforted that they really tried to save him and that they knew when it wasn't humane to try any longer. It's really too bad that the racing industry doesn't allow artificial insemination (as do most other horse organizations). It would have been wonderful if he could have fathered a few foals.
