There is no doubt that this blog was inspired by my reportage on the surgery and aftercare of injured Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro. From May 2006 on, I have been following his condition via web connections. It occurred to me that others might like to read what I am finding, and I found an eager audience. I also found that people were interested in other casese, and other projects, at vet schools and research centers around the world. And EquiSearch.com was curious, too; before long, the idea for this blog was born.
I will continue to publish links to the latest news on Barbaro in this space, along with any other information relevant to his case.
