    And far less explicable...here at least there's some faint hope if he beats the primary disease process he can recover, whereas with a leg like Barbaro's... Jingling for Paynter!

    That's a good way to look at it you can usually tell when they give up. Sorry to hear about the laminitis

    A brighter update tonight:Paynter update: cut and pasted from twitter....

    Paynter continues to amaze his vets by his resilience, class, charm, determination, what a horse. Indeed he is
    so special. . Paynter has been walking comfortably all day. This afternoon his diarrhea resolved and he passed formed manure.
    He was mildly uncomfortable when defecating, which is not uncommon in horses with colitis as the diarrhea resolves.
    He has had an intermittent low grade fever but his blood work continues to be normal. He continues to be treated aggressively.

    Please keep your good prayers and energy coming our champ is fighting and fighting hard
    We don't get less brave; we get a bigger sense of self-preservation........

    Zayat Stables þ@ZayatStables
    Here is @jazz3162 on ESPN radio discussing Paynters condition http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=8348589

    Interesting and emotional interview. I don't know AZ from Adam, but I love him for his caring about the horse, and also his emotions re B. Baffert's father passing away.

    Continued prayers for him and his connections. He certainly has been a fighter through all of this. Hopefully he is on the way to full health and happiness now.

    You know, I'm really impressed with Zayat - he seems to have a connection with his colt and really does care for him.

    Hoping now that Paynter can finally reach full recovery now that that nasty abscess in the cecum is gone. He's got to feel so much better with that thing out of his gut.

    He's now at Fair Hill, as a resident of Bruce Jackson's therapy/rehab center. What a fighter. He looks good, if just a bit thin.

    I am gobsmacked that he pulled through. What a freakin' horse. Kudos & massive respect from me to Zayat and the many, many folks involved in his treatment. I was more than a little wary that his struggle was being prolonged, but Zayat was very vocal about being ready to make a decision at the first sign from Paynter that it was time and I'll be darned, that horse really really DID want to fight. What a freakin' HORSE!
