I cringed at the Preakness, watching a pretty cool horse break down. I cringed again when the vetrinarian's diagnosis was broadcast several times.

But do I really need hourly updates on the horse's condition? I have a news crawler across the bottom of my laptop screen and I think it has included a Barbaro update 24/7 since Saturday.


Or am I just a heartless rube?

Being totally ignorant with regard to matters equine, I was surprised to read that that kind of injury usually results in the animal being put down on the spot. But I could find no explanation as to why that would be -- why would that sort of injury usually be inoperable and/or chronically painful for the animal? How can veterinary medicine be so ineffectual in this day and age?

I asked the same question. This kind of injury would immobilize a person for 6 weeks or more. Kind of hard to put a horse in traction.
