Maybe while she is at Churchill Downs she can get one of the farriers to trim her hooves. Dayam she is one hefty looking heifer.

Hey stupid. A bunion is a misalighment of the bone on the inside of the foot by the big toe. Your picture showed a corn. Get it right, dumb ass.

Can't you ever find something POSITIVE to say about people? Quick being so critical of people...count your blessings
and delve inside of self. Start being a little "fresh air" into the world. That's what we need. Enough already of putting
others down. In all my 66 years, I've never witnessed so much negativity in my life!

Do the people who truly love her, try and console, discuss, or otherwise even mention the potential health problems that come from being that big? Does she check her blood sugar regularly? I mean, Ok she made it to 67, thats good, given her size and potential complications, but making it to 68 or 69 could be a stretch unless she's undergoing major lifestyle changes.

What can we do other than pray? Start finding collectible items on ebay before she passes so they will increase in value when she does, which unless major changes happen,could be a nice short term investment.

Sorry to sound so selfish, but she's being selfish to her fans by not doing the things that will keep them enjoying her for years to come.

Reduce, change your diet, exercise, relax and enjoy yourself. You are already loved by so many...but unless you change, the advice is look at her as an investment.
