Apparently, there aren't enough children writing letters: Barbaro is in serious trouble.
"I think we're in for tough times right now. I think we're going to have some tough days ahead,'' Dr. Dean Richardson said at the New Bolton Center at the University of Pennsylvania. ''I'm being realistic about it. When a horse has a setback like this, it's a problem.''
Apparently, the problem is "the pastern joint above the hoof," whatever that is. Fortunately, Dr. Richardson says, "he's very hungry. He's making lots of manure. He looks actually pretty happy today." That always makes us happy.
Anyway, Barbaro's in trouble, Jimmy! Time to get to the typewriter and save the day!
