Barbaro update

Barbaro update: the mighty horse has just had the cast on his leg replaced, and he's doing fine:

Dean Richardson, the chief of surgery at the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals, replaced the cast he first put on Barbaro's leg during surgery May 21.

'His leg looks excellent,' Richardson said in the statement. 'The incision has healed well and judging by the radiographs, the graft is opacifying (taking). Callus is forming nicely, and all of the implants look unchanged.'
