Big Brown haning up his (horse) shoes
When we first heard the news that Big Brown had injured his right front foot, we immediately thought the worse.
We're not too far removed from the passing of Eight Belles and, of course, Barbaro to think that a foot-related injury could spell the end of days for Big Brown.
Good news: it's not! No one's getting euthanized anytime soon, though Big Brown's racing career is over, which is probably getting the folks at PETA all riled up. RACING IS BAD! ANIMALS ARE GOOD! REVOLUTION!
Nearly two years later, we still can't believe Barbaro is dead. Fuck. Just as you're getting to like someone.. (That photo, by the way, is a picture of Barbaro, because who the fuck knows the difference between these horses anyway?)
