Barbaro update: section of hoof removed

15 01 2007


The Bloodhorse reports that Barbaro has had another section of his left hind hoof removed this weekend in order to decrease pressure on the coffin bone, and a cast placed on his right hind for extra support. Barbaro’s current treatment includes a return to the sling pictured in this photo taken in July.
