    It’s pretty dark, not so funny. Horses, especially in the old days, were usually shot if they broke a leg.

    It’s pretty dark, not so funny. Horses, especially in the old days, were usually shot if they broke a leg.

    From what I’ve read, they still are — and not just for breaking legs. The surplus of thoroughbred horses and their expense in maintaining has led to euthanizing up to an estimated two-thirds of them after their racing days are over.

    Perhaps you remember Barbaro at the Preakness (2007). They tried to heal his broken hind legs by suspending him in a truss, to keep him off of his legs, for eight months to allow for healing, but ended up killing him anyway.

    The next year, Eight Belles broke both front ankles at the Kentucky Derby and was euthanized on the course, after the race.

    Horses, especially thoroughbreds that are trained to run, can’t fathom that they need to keep off of their legs when they are broken and need to heal.
