My Dad will be happy to know that Barbaro is doing just fine.

Check out this story:

It isn't exactly "The Great Escape," but after nearly three months of being cooped up in the intensive care unit of the New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa., Barbaro has been leaving his stall to graze on the lawn outside the hospital.

"We felt he was ready for a change of scenery, so last week we took him outside to pick his own grass," said Dr. Dean Richardson, chief of surgery.
