The colt's left hind foot, which has laminitis (founder), is monitored closely for signs of infection.
"We change his left hind foot bandage daily, and it looks good," says chief of surgery Dean Richardson.
"His right hind leg also looks good, and his appetite remains strong."
Barbaro's laminitic foot is causing more pain than his broken off-side leg, reports indicate. Dr Richardson indicated in a recent interview with AP (reported on Tim Woolley Racing), that "If he hadn't had the founder on his left hind, he'd probably be out of the cast and he'd probably be in a splinted bandage on the shoe."
Barbaro remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the University of Pennsylvania's George D. Widener Hospital.
