You Do Realize It Was a Horse, Right?

I realize that I am treading dangerous waters here with this subject but I am amazed at the reactions to the death of Barbaro. I really don’t want to sound cruel or cold hearted because the injury and the subsequent euthanization of the potentially great race horse was tragic. However, sending get well cards and roses, along with e-mails all to the horse as well as holding candle light services is a bit much for me.

Do you have any idea how many animals are euthanized in America every day? I don’t either but it’s a lot! If you’re going to send well wishes via cards and e-mails then send them to Mr. & Mrs. Jackson who lost their cash cow, err… horse. Barbaro’s career earned $2,302,200.00.
