Big Brown, hurting?

The racehorse Big Brown lost the last leg of the Triple Crown in a big way, he came in last. This big hearted Thoroughbred had to have something very wrong with him for such a sad performance. There have been pictures circulating all over the internet of his hooves and how bad they were. Many horse savvy people were surprised that he even won the first 2 races of the Triple Crown with those hooves. His hooves were reported to be held to together with supper glue and filler, much like the filler used for woman's fake finger nails. The old saying "no hoof, no horse" is very true. If his hooves were as bad as they say they were then that poor animal was in a great deal of pain. No wonder he didn't want to run, would you if your feet hurt to walk on them?
