    Seems like they just run these poor things until they break.. and people think NASCAR is ignorant..

    yeah, I know it's just a horse.. I cried when ol' yeller got shot, so deal..

    It bummed me out when I saw that today. There was something special about that horse. He was a badass. It's a shame to see such and incredible animal have to be euthanised but i'm glad he's not suffering anymore.

    I feel the same way.. I'm sure the vets who were working on him got some invaluable information too, so the cause of veterinary medicine might be advanced.. we can look at it that way too.
