Barbaro injured leg

Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro broke his leg while running in the Preakness. SI.com story here.

The photo above shows that horses do indeed carry people on their backs in the wild. I was wrong about that -- sorry.


Special thanks to Hyram Goldlust for the great ideas.

Wait....ur...what horse? You have a picture of Hillary Clinton there. What do you mean a horse? Am I missing something? Did Hillary break her leg? What was she doing running the in Preakness? I'm not sure I follow your story there, Don.

Thats horrible. Thats not even gunny on how you photoshopped that leg like that on Barbaro. He was an amazing horse and you obviously dont know that. So if you do that then do it to a picture of your self, I bet people will laugh.. I know I would.

To all of the people who left critical comments, thanks for stopping by, and go fuck yourselves in the ass, especially "Ashley".

Have a nice day.

You can go do that to yourself in a corner because your just horrible. This racehorse was one of the best and I do hope that you break your leg and people just laugh at you. This is seriously wrong and I can't believe that someone could do something like that. Just a sick minded person if you ask me. You probably don't even know who Barbaro is and just found the picture of this poor hurt horse who was through so much. So if you have a dog or something I hope it's leg falls off and people make fun of it by putting a baseball player's leg on the floor by your dog! Then we'll see how you like it. Actually, you would probably laugh at it because you obviously don't like animals. Seriously, don't do this if you know people are going to write bad about it. YOU may think it's funny but your the only one on earth who thinks this is funny. Your just a sick minded person to do this to such a graceful animal. YOU go fuck yourself in a corner and don't do this again to these majestic animals. Expecially when they're in such pain as Barbaro was. I hope you have a good day. And bless the poor animals that live with you if you have any.

This is so rude and disrespectful it makes me sick. Barbaro's injury is nothing to laugh at, though it seems many boggers think it is. Well, it's shallow. Give him some respect. And Shaved Ape... what kind of response were you expecting???

Anonymous said...

I agree with you ashley!!!!! This is NOT funny. How could you do this. Go to Hell. Asshole

The Shaved Ape said...

I'm not taking any of these comments seriously. It's a horse. You know, the kind of creature that supplies the meat in Tijuana taco shops. No big deal.

Besides, horses never liked us. Look at what happened to Superman. I always thought Kryptonite was his only weakness. Wrong! These four-legged monsters (three-legged?) brought him down -- there can be no forgiveness for that.

What the fuck is wrong with u? ur fucking retarded and messed up! fuck u. ur nothing but a homo who's 30 years old and lives with his mom and sits on the couch eating girl scout cookies.

Yet another nutjob getting hyperemotional about a horse...

Wat the hell! It's not just a horse it's one of the greatest! You fucking asshole don't treat this like a joke! You might as well be my dad you abusive, sick minded dirt bag! Barbaro suffered greatly and he wanted to win the race with a busted up leg! So you should hide cause I -and probaly more people- would love sacrafice you if it means Barbaro can return! I hate you! Take this thing off the internet you bastard

Did he really want to win, or was he running because he knew he'd be whipped if he slowed down?

Whipping horses so they run fast doesn't seem any less cruel than my blog post.

Are you guys stupid?! You obviously don't know ANYTHING about horses. I can bet you that you don't even know what a hind leg is. Barbaro kept running, not because he didn't have a choice, because he loved to run. And if you even know what the Breeder's Cup is then you would have seen how Quality Road did not want to get in that gate. I think if these horses didn't want to run then they wouldn't. They are BRED to run, thats something they love to do. And I know you don't know Zenyatta but she dances when she gets on the racetrack. These horses love to run, and I think that if they didn't want to run then they wouldn't. So I think you all should just shut up.

Thats SICK that you eat horse meat. Do you even know who Barbaro was? Oh, and by the way you said you weren't going to respond to our comments but by saying what you said. you responded. You are a sick person if you eat horse meat. Do you own one of those slotter houses? If so I hope you die in a fucking black hole. I really do want to just cut your head off for saying that, then you'll know how the horse feels. Seriously, I would LOV for you to tell me who Barbaro was. You probably don't even know what ruf is because your some creepy hermit who lives in a shack! I agree, any animal that lives with you is going through hell. If you do have a pet, I would love to just cut their legs off, and see how you like it.

Asshole. Why put something like this? Barbaro was America's horse. Haha, I bet you don' know what a horse is do you? Other than a four-legged animal. Plus your not good at photoshop at all. GET BETTER! You suck at it, I mean c'mon... A rat with a penci would be a hell of alot better than you. I hope you just get hit by a car.... Karma will come to you, I'll make sure of it and I'll laugh on your grave. Ha, I'm already laughing! I just imagine the picture as you is all.

Darkwings said...

What the heck man...
That's like... Sick -.-
So yeah. Barbaro was the bestest horse in the universe.
Show some respect for the people who loved him.
Sick-O

Okay. For all that read this blog:

First of all, go die. Second, I'm so freaking sick and tired of people saying things about this beautiful animal. He ran his heart out and this is how we repay him? By Photo-Shopping a picture of him and then calling him Hillary Clinton? C'mon. Please. You all are so fucking pathetic, it's not even funny. Go get a fucking life or go jump off a bridge and die.

Barbaro deserves more than this. We're ruining everything his owners hoped for, which was to win one the country's biggest races. They did it......With Barbaro. Sure, he didn't survive the deathly disease that overtook him, but a lot of people looked up to him, especially a man with bipolar disease. Don't believe me? Go read Edgar Prado's book "My Guy Barbaro" and then come fucking talk to me. Jeez, you have no idea how pissed you guys are making me.

Hope you have a nice fucking day.

Wild Lands Member said...

This is stupid you ASSHOLE, how could you do this? A horse like Barbaro should not be mocked like this, it just shows how ignorant you are, go to fucking hell! I hope that whatever thing you care about most would die, maybe then you'd see our point of view. Your a idiot to thik everyone would just say 'Oh, haha, this is funny!' Your a fucking moron you idiot!

Anonymous said...

You mother fucking idiot! You puzzletwit. Never have I seen such an image. You have your head so far up your own god damn ass that you don't even see the beauty of this beast, of any animal. I wish one would just fucking crush you because of this. I hope you burn in hell with the rest of the losers who thought this was funny. You know how much this pissing me off? Your about to find out you bastard.

I would love, just love to see you race. I'll bet my life that your just some fat ass who sits on a couch all day and makes photos like this. And not only that, but you think there funny. (Only to you Genuis.) So why don't you take your 'funny' image and shove it right up your ass where it belongs because it sucks! Maybe you haven't noticed that almost every comment is saying shit about you. Or maybe your blind to and your mom as to read this to you, because you obviously don't see the true beauty of this anmial. Did you fail history because they started our country and racing currently keeps us on our feet because sane people can't stand to be away and not spend a little extra money on bets. But no, we have dumbasses like you who think a dying animal is funny......I believe people would call you a stuck up, sick minded bastard. And you may think that this doesn't effect you, but honestly, that is most likely because its true. So sorry you blockheaded, jackass, moron why don't you go get some glasses so that you can see the true beauty of racing.

And in case your pea sized brain is on over load because these words are too big for you, your picture is much more cruel and you think its funny. If you didn't know, moron, they have people who moniter the races to make sure the jockey isn't stupid and whip the horse still it heels over. But again you most likely know nothing about the sport. So good day, you idioic fool. I hope God takes pity of your damned soul.....Just Kidding.

Yeah, but you idiot... The horse that kicked 'superman' wasn't a race horse!! You don't know the difference because YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A FUCKING HORSE IS! Your probably just jealous because this horse is MUCH stronger, graceful and more cuter than you. Sorry, but superman was never real you freak. I can bet you 'superman' would punch you in the face for doing this, because HE LIKED HORSES!


YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRR AAANNNNNNN ASSHOLE!! Jerk off, I wish you could just seriously go fuck yourself in a corner, because yournot going to get a girl or a guy, NONE if you keep doing this. People love horses and your going to be alone, so that's all you have, so I think you should just fuck yourself, because your going to be all alone. would say with cats but your proably going to eat them.

A pissed of Barbaro fan said...

Dude, what the hell? Why would you do that? Thats messed up! Barbaro was one of the greatest racehorses of all time! Why would you disrespect him like that? I would really like to throw your ass into a stove, and just burn you up. You a sick minded bastard that has no respect for life. Go to Hell.

Anonymous said...

That is just wrong and sick. You really should reconsider before putting up another picture like this. Many people, clearly, would like to hurt you for this, including me.
Just because its a horse does not make it any better than if it were you. So just shut the fuck up you bastard and really, reconsider your responce, and future pictures.
Yes yes, "it's just a horse. What's the big deal?"
that's what you're gonna say right? Answer that question yourself if you can, though I highly doubt it...

Anonymous said...

You fucking ass. Do you know what you have just done? YOu have just fucked with barbaro, and me. I don't take shit like this happening to one of the greatest racer's of all time. I can say nice things, but fuck it. You are so lucky I am not there skinning your ass alive, and sending you to hell bastard. Barbaro is a true hero, doing thing's you would piss your pants doing instead of. So why don't you nicely take if away, before I kick your ass into eternity?

david drake said...

I think the post is hysterically funny. Made me LMAO!

Obviously, those who criticize this post have no sense of humor, Don, nor do they have much intelligence. They don't grasp the fact that horses probably don't enjoy being whipped with a riding crop and forced to run. I don't think horses live that way in their natural setting.

I think we should exhume Barbaro's body and hack it up all over again just for fun and to piss off all the lame-asses horse-sh*t eaters who are whining about this post because THEY are the ones sitting in their parents basement eating Doritos.

LOOK AT THE DATE OF THE POST, PEOPLE...IT'S 2006! Just where the F**K have you been for the past four years? Oh, that's right, you've had your head up Barbaro's arse right?

Kill Barbaro again! And again!

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha !

i don't think any of you fools know WHY these things happen to these horses. they are trained way too ahrd, way too early in their short lives. their bones aren't even properly developed yet. the argument that the training helps with the formation of bones which would be advantageous later on in their career is utter horse crap. the careers aren't long enough for one, and i guess sending my 5 year old son to a boxing ring would make him tougher later on in life hey. there is a time for everything. you don't train immature bones that hard. especially when you know that there is a greater chance of breakages when they are younger. but thats where the money is, so thats what will continue to happen. but the horse is loved. give a kid a six shot with one round in and spin it.
and what is wrng with eating horse meat? why is the life of a horse so much more important than the life of a sheep or cow? life is life. and if you love an animal, you wouldn't put it in harm's way. but its all done for your pleasure. so go watch your race. but take a good look at it. take a good look at yourselves. and then see if all your swearing at The Shaved Ape is warrented. you are a bunch of hypocrits in my opinion.
cheers

kirunhog said...

yeah!!! take it off!!! before we all kick your ass into eternity!!! online.....wait for it..... ****cyber kick!**** yeah! thats what you get for posting this!

LMFAO!!!

is your ass in eternity yet?

cheers mate :)

Yeah, the so-called horse lovers are an irrational bunch.

The entire "animal rights" movement makes me laugh. Animals have no rights, except to be owned and used by humans -- not always negatively, of course.

The really strange thing is that people get so uptight about the cute animals, but when's the last time somebody through a fit about mice or rats getting slaughtered?

If it's cute and cuddly or shows even the slightest hint that it likes humans, then let's treat it like a deity, but if it's ugly or makes strange noises or smells or eats crops, then to hell with it!

Nutcases, each and every one of them.

Francis Ford Coppola said he received numerous angry complaints about the horse's head scene in The Godfather, but none of those people complained about the 30 or so humans that got murdered. I think that sums it up.

what the fuck is wrong with you! how bout i come to yours house and shank your face and break your fucking leg off then ill take a pic of it and post it on all the popular websites if barbaro was still alive i get him to kick u ad u'd be dead cause a horse vs human the horse would win the only way humans win if they use weapons the unmanly way so go fuck your mom cause thats the only women/girl u have ever been close too

YOU ARE A FUCKING RETARD. BARBARO WAS A GREAT HORSE, BOTH IN ABILITY AND MOST OF ALL IN SPIRIT.

YOU THINK IT'S FUNNY? YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T HAVE A BRAIN IN YOUR HEAD; IT'S PROBABLY FULL OF SHIT AND WORMS. DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR - YOU NEED TO CHOP OFF YOUR HEAD.

Did any of you Barbaro drones like the DVD case? I worked hard on it just for you!

BlackSeaGal said...

It's not about a horse, actually, and your problem's not just having a taste of a pig. Your problem is a chronic impotency and deep sexual frustration. You can't get off without enjoying shit like this, can you? That's the only way for you:) I bet you have been rejected by any living body whom you directed your lust to:) I won't be surprised if pretty soon you start killing people, because jerking off on a static gore probably won't be enough any more to get your tiny dead wee-wee back to life. Enjoy your miserable self, before you end up in a death chamber and you sure will, sooner or later. I'd say "sooner" sounds much better:).
P.S. In meanwhile, shaved or not, you are an ape. That I can agree with you all 100%:)

They're all sold out. Sorry.

Did you see how many times my life got threatened because of a photoshopped horse? If I wanted to be cruel, I would have done much worse.

Horse lovers are an excitable bunch.

Hello, I'm not going to cuss you out or be rude, but I've been a horse lover all of my life, and I must shed some light on the subject here. Horses are, when you get to know them, very emotional and intelligent creatures, not just a food animal, hence why the Christian Bible bans them from being edible. Barbaro was a great racehorse and his owners loved him very much, but back to my shedding light. Horses hold emotions in their face and eyes, and they can tell you their thoughts through body language, such as, when they pin their ears back, they are going to be aggressive, forward, they are alert and listening, head low, they are submissive, the list goes on. Whether you believe in animal rights or not, have respect for the dead and do not post crude photos like this on here, but, I hope you have grown up from this, as it was awhile back, and you've learned a little about these wonderful creatures. Thanks for spending the time to read this,

A dedicated horse owner and lover.

I'm a total animal lover, and I thought this was hilarious. It's a joke. Kinda sick, but hey. Some of us are rigged that way. Doesn't mean we actually go around maiming animals or cutting people. This world needs to lighten up.
