Re: FW: [RC] Barbaro - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

It's all about money.   That's the only reason they're trying to 
him now, too.

I wouldn't be that sure. I'm sure he was insured and his owners 
aren't poor. Even if he is able to breed there's no guarantee he'll 
be a good sire. 

Think about it, how many people want to have a Kentucky Derby 
Winner...and they got one. I have no doubt they're fond of him. It's 
not like he's a claimer they picked up last week and hadn't really 
gotten fond of.

Trying to save an animal at all costs isn't always the kindest thing 
you can do for them. Not saving some of these horses who break down 
may be the right thing to do when you're already in that spot. Their 
statement that they will monitor his attitude and when they can't 
control his pain they'll give up is a good decision to me. I've seen 
some awful things when owners refused to give up on a horse 
*thinking* they were kind in wanting to save them.
