    October 27, 2007 at 8:57 pm

    THAT WAS OFFENSIVE, RUDE, DISRESPECTFUL, AND HORRIBLE! WHY WOULD YOU PUT UNREALY EVENTS OF BARBARO’S LIFE ON THERE?????? ID BE SO ASHAMED!!!!!!!!!! No dear viewers, this is not funny. Barbaro was by for one of the best colts who ever “flew” the track. The best derby winner to win sense Secretariat. And how do you people on this site honnor him? Make up stupid little uncalledfor things that would sure dissapoint any race fan. You better hope that the Jackson’s don’t read this!! None of these events happened. you idiodic people didnt even know Barbaro’s sire’s or dam’s name. for your info his sire’s name was Dynaformer NOT Barbaro Soto and his dam’s name was La Ville Rouge NOT Lex Luger (the name rimes with loser and let me get this staight throught your ignorant mind; BARBARO WAS NOT A LOOSER!!!!!!!!! HE WON EVERY RACE HE WON!!!!). YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOUR FOOLISHED PLEASURED ACTIONS!!! (and no, Foolish Pleasure, I have nothing againt you) In my opinion this site is horrible and dishonnorant. who would want to read this? Not me. Barbaro was greater than what you think. Dont lissen to them Barbaro. Rest In Peace and pay no attention. I forbid ANY of you to EVER make fun of a champion like that again.

    You people are evil, pure evil. Barbaro is in hevvin with his lover from a past life, Catherine the Great. Ocasionally he transports back to earth to appear at farmpass d o t c o m. You mean spirited people could learn a lesson from Barbaro. Come to my s i t e and join up for enlightenment.

    Actually Jordan, I’d like to revise your comment:

    THIS IS FUNNY!
    Its awfully hilarious!
    Barbaro was america’s farce, he was SO horse-like!
    This is disbarment to all of the people who loved him, You should be locked up.

    April 13, 2008 at 2:59 pm

    FYI, the father of Barbaro (also my horse’s father) is named Dynaformer, NOT “Barbarosanto”…

  23. This is not funny

    April 13, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    This is so awful barbaro was an amazing animal and any horse or race fan new that.
    TO put this on here and with a picture of wen he is is pain and with a hurt leg its awful. He shoudl not be remebered in this moment but off his great acomplishments and what a magnifisent animal he was. You should be ashamed and not all ur informashon is even correct of him.

    May 5, 2008 at 7:06 pm

    this is so derogatory to the memory of a great horse. that picture is of him in pain. it’s not meant to be funny. i demand this kind of vulgar activity be removed at once

  27. TBone

    May 5, 2008 at 11:38 pm

    Need not to worry folks, I saw Barbaro at the bar tonight and he was doing his customary “motor boat” routine to any chick that walked past him. Guy, I mean horse, is doing just fine.

    May 27, 2008 at 11:41 pm

    This is sickening. That edited picture of Barbaro is one taken after his leg broke. If you knew even the slightest bit about horses, you would understand the strength, stamina, and will of heart it takes for an animal that was born to run to be stuck in a stall and distributing his weight improperly (and yes, for horses to put their weight on three legs is incredibly difficult and takes a lot from an animal- why do you think most horses with leg injuries are put down?). This is a disgrace, and you’re a tasteless wonder.

    Barbaro was America’s horse because he was against the odds in survival and he became our underdog. If you don’t like it, fuckin’ move to Mexico, and then you’ll appreciate a countries ability to focus on a story like his.

    June 4, 2008 at 12:10 am

    Why is this even still here? what ya’ll have nothing better to do than make fun of a horse that has no voice? okay whatever this isn’t even worth my time…..Barbaro IS a LIVING Legend!!!!! R.I.P.!!!!!!!!

  44. Corrina

    June 4, 2008 at 1:39 am

    Okay well overall, the fake timelines were pretty funny

    BUT using the picture of Barbaro when he broke his leg at the track, and making fun of it was kinda rude and insensitive to the issue. You can clearly see the horse in pain…

    (in other words, you are a jackass).

    You know only really sick people get a kick out of using photos like this. You have taken an animal that ran not only because he loved to but for the people out there who loves horses and the racing area. People like you are jack ass’s who cause america to have such horrible names. If you can’t respect something good then your brining up SUCKED!!!!!!

  47. laura

    June 17, 2008 at 9:23 am

    THIS IS DISRESPECTFUL AND OFFENSIVE-YOU SHOW A PICTURE THAT HAS BEEN ALTERED FROM A PICTURE ON THE RACETRACK AFTER BARBARO’S ACTUAL FATAL INJURY AT THE PREAKNESS. YOU ARE A SICK PERSON, IF IN FACT YOU ARE EVEN HUMAN WHICH I DOUBT. YOUR AN ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. I <3 Barbaro!!

    July 17, 2008 at 10:22 pm

    It puts me to shame to see how disrespectful people can be now a days. Take this picture and the story off and get a life
    I love Barbaro and if you no nothing about him (which you clearly don’t) PLEASE don’t make fun of him.

    I forbid you to EVER do this to a horse again!!!

    July 20, 2008 at 9:15 am

    Please remove this page. Even though I know you made it to be funny, it is really disrespectful.

    August 21, 2008 at 3:07 pm

    I know you think this is funny, but it lacks moral class moron, making fun of an animal that died and you knew nothing about. What you get from writing this I deon’t know. It makes me sick.

    You people need to calm down. Everybody take a deep breath! Now… don’t put a spin on this that is irrelevant. I don’t see this as shameful or hurtful. This is a funny piece and being a horse owner and extreme horse lover, I giggled when I read it. It’s not disrespectful; it’s just lampooning the tides of celebritism, of which Barbaro was a part. It’s not slamming the horse or making fun of him. It’s just making us smile about a fictionary life of a remarkable animal. Just take it at face value and stop reading so much into it!

    December 1, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    I think you are totally right! That was terrible! Barbaro doesn’t look happy at all. His ears are back, and he looks like he’s ready to kick that foolish lady! I don’t blame him! This was disgraceful! Barabaro has a special place in my heart, and I hope NO ONE thinks this is funy, because THIS IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL! I hate whoever out that up on here and thought it funny to put the best racehorse ever up on an overrated stage with that stupid lady! I feel like crying looking at it! UHHH!

  58. Barbarolover

    December 1, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    You’re right! Take those people to the police! I hope they’re there for a LONG time! They deserve a sentence!!!!!

  59. Barbaro is love ?

    February 28, 2009 at 11:27 am

    Everything Posted in the above statement is true Barbaro was sired By Dynaformer and Damed by La Ville Rouge. He was a great race horse and won every race entered, everything he went through after that race was agony and pain. Barbaro was an still is a great colt that still lives in everyone who loved him’s hearts and THIS WHAT YOU DID HERE IS A HORRIBLE THING TO SAY ABOUT AN ANIMAL WHO HAD DONE NOTHING WRONG BUT RACE THE RACES HE WAS IN AND WIN THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    March 10, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    okay. . .first of all, this is NOT funny. Barbaro was a great horse and he does not deserve to be made fun of like this. Secondly, whoever put this up has no respect for anything. This is not cool, and it’s not funny. And if you do think that it’s funny, then you have a sick mind. So I hope you had fun making this little thing, and you obviously have no life. So instead of making fun of someone elses horse, why don’t you go meet a girl, get a life, and make some friends so you don’t have to waste your life doing stupid things like this. Kay?
    ~ lots of love <3

    This picture is disgusting…you have photoshopped in a photo of a horse who had just broken his leg! (That shot of Barbaro is one taken immediatley after he was pulled up at the Preakness Stakes)….Whoever made this should be ashamed!

    I have to agree with horseralist, Lisa, Punk, catherine milles, Barbaro Lover, Katiy, this is not funny, Guest User, manowar222, laura, and almost everyone else.
    Barbaro was a great horse, and this is not funny at all.
    Spring 1988 – Barbaro’s father, BarbaroSonto, wreaks havoc at trendy Manhattan nightclub Limelight after being snubbed of an Oscar nod for lead performance in the highly praised Hot to Trot.

    April 29, 2003 – Lex Luger and BarbaroSonto give birth to Barbaro.

    Summer 2003 – Neil Young and Barbaro join Eddie Vedder on-stage to sing “Rockin’ in the Free World”, surprising a raging MSG crowd on opening night.

    Fall 2003 – Barbaro loses role of Seabiscuit during 2nd day of filming after he was caught banging Tobey McGuire’s girlfriend, inadvertently kickstarting racing career.

    March 2004, Wrestlemania – Barbaro effortlessly sends Vince McMahon flying over the ropes with emotional “hoof-kick” after McMahon mocks horse racing to disapproving Southern crowd.

    October 2005 – Barbaro replaces Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the Daytona 500 and finishes a respectable 4th despite a very heavy Budweiser car.

    May 2006 – After experiencing turbulent winds, Donald Trump’s helicopter lands safely on Barbaro’s back as he wins the Kentucky Derby.

    August 2006 – Barbaro weds Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in a secluded wedding ceremony just outside of Prague.

    September 2006 – Disillusioned with his new found celebrity status, Barbaro joins the Peace Corps, eventually spending time at a Buddhist temple in Tibet before returning to the U.S.

    November 2006 – Barbaro has major setback on Dancing With the Stars after awkwardly slipping on Emmit Smith’s boot tassel during a group dance warm-up.

    December 2006 – Paris Hilton reveals she’s late, giving us renewed hope that Barbaro will become a father.

    Early January 2007 – Barbaro, seemingly healthy again, enjoys glorious beach jog with new BFF Matthew McConaughey.

    Yesterday – Martin Scorsese tabs Barbaro to play Louis XIV for his upcoming Victorian era epic “Louis”.

    Minutes before being euthanized – Barbaro smokes 8lb. blunt with Snoop Dogg and Nate Newton.

    NONE of those lines were ever real.
    Whoever the hell posted these things, you should be danged ashamed of yourself!!
    This is not funny.
    My horse was bred with Barbaro’s father as well, and I very well know that BarbaroSanto is not Barbaro’s father’s name. His name is Dynaformer.
    They WISH BarbaroSanto was his name.

    Then again, I also slightly agree that this was meant to be funny, but it came out very, very, sickening. For crying out loud! This is a picture of Barbaro! Not some- circus horse! It would have been funnier if he was ACTUALLY THERE BEFORE he broke his leg!!!!!!!!

    That picture is NOT funny! and the events are NOT funny. Who do you think you are to be criticizing an amazing athlete. and Im betting that way more people are going to agree with me that you have no right to say this!!!! And that they watched this unfortunate event! And they probably have way more respect for this horse than your ass!!!!

    I believe the word you were looking for was “yours.” Yes, “yours,” not “your.”

    This is NOT funny. At all. I am a horse freak and I love to watch horses race. It is a tragity when horses get injured. How would you feel if someone took your photo when you were in pain, edited it so it looked “funny” and posted it on the internet? You wouldnt like it would you? -.- People like you make me sick.

    Distasteful to say the least! Someone sure spent alot of time dreaming this up.
    Disrespectful, also. To make a joke out of an injured animal surely shows that the poster of this picture and the people that condone it have no class and a sick sense of humor. Maybe they should try helping animals instead of making fun of them, jmo.
    Grow the hell up!!

    This is a very disturning, arrogant, thing someone can do considering this horse ran his heart out, struggled for months to over come laminitis and has done a great deal for the studies of the disease of laminits. Obviously many of you ignorant posters do not know about animals, let alone horses. This is the bully type of arrogance we teach our children NOT to behave like. SHAME ON ALL OF US AND SHAME ON THE IGNORATN WEBMASTER for allowing this.
    Today happens to be this horses birthday and his life was cut short because all he tried to do in life was do what he and all horses like to do, RUN. Anyone writing what has been negatively written on here are scum. If one has no respect for an animal, then you are subhuman. Remove this immediately.
