  • Is there an update on roaring lion?

    I’ve been wondering how he’s doing since his second surgery.

    A tweet from David Redvers on 8/8:
    "Beyond happy to report that #RoaringLion returned home to
    @CambridgeStudtoday. 12 days after he initially became ill. In awe of the job done by everyone to save him and the courage of the horse himself. Not out of the woods yet but can see the tree line. #welcome home champ"

    There's also a video of him walking quite comfortable back to his barn.

      From BH

      IMO, he has a long road still left to go but encouraging that he's back at Cambridge Stud and out of the hospital.

      I get the rollercoaster as the owner of a mare who had 2 colic surgeries within 48 hours including a 2.5cm small intestine resection. Yup, she finally went home and lived another 12ish years until I lost her from the 'infirmities of old age'.
      Maybe the reason I love animals so much is because the only time they have broken my heart is when they've crossed that rainbow bridge

        That’s great news he is home! Hope is recovery continues upwards from here.

          On, IIRC, H&H, they said he had lost 25% of his small intestine. This sounds remarkably like torsion colic in dogs.

            From Cambridge Stud's web page

            https://www.cambridgestud.co.nz/news...-colic-surgery

            There were two adhesions from the first operation compromising a length of small intestine and they were removed.
            Adhesions can be a complication of equine intestinal surgery. Sounds like it was caught and addressed quickly.

            From Cambridge Stud's most recent update (Aug 9).

            While Roaring Lion’s condition would be described as fragile, due to the two surgeries and resulting weight loss, he is clinically in good shape. Bright, alert and eating well. His recovery is being monitored 24 hours a day and he has done well since his return to Cambridge.
            Cambridge Stud will continue updates on Roaring Lion until his departure in December.

              As tough as he is, I will be very surprised if he's healthy enough to fly back to Europe before the northern hemisphere breeding season.

                We're still 5-6 months away. If things continue to go well, I'd expect him to be able to manage a plane trip after that much time. As for the breeding season itself, maybe, maybe not.

                  Another update from David Redvers:
                  "Roaring Lion recovery continues @CambridgeStud. Amazing to think it was a year ago today that he won the @JuddmonteFarms International Gr1 @yorkracecourse. His appetite has returned and he seems just like his old self. Thank you to Rob, Marcus and all the team."

                      No new info on Cambridge Stud's webpage yet. Thanks LaurieB for this update!

                      Glad to hear he is continuing his recovery and eating well.
