Being a horse person and all? Frankly, I'm not much of a horse person, and all I ever was was a "horse show dad", but I was really pulling for Barbaro. I think his owners are to be congratulated for all the effort they put in to trying to save him. Darn shame it happened. Sad

It was so sad to hear that after battling so hard, they had to put Barbaro down.  They had enough money to make the supreme effort to save him, but were compassionate enough to know when it was time to let him go.  I saw the interview with the vet, and he was obviously very enotional.  I think they tried to do what was best for the horse, and when he was obviously in pain, they made the tough choice.
