Roaring Lion colicked shortly after arrival last week at Cambridge Stud in NZ. He was operated on almost immediately for a small intestine twist.

He had another surgery yesterday to loosen some adhesions from the first surgery.

It's looking really, really bad.

Yes there was some dead sections of intestines they had to remove.
I don't know that he will survive and if he does how they will ever get him back to Europe.

A lot will depend on the next 2 months.

I expect there will be a lot of meetings between various owners, shareholders, and insurance company reps in that time.

Per the Cambridge Stud twitter page, Roaring Lion has had 25% of his small intestine removed.

Good god.

Out of the hospital and back to Cambridge Stud.

He's one lucky bugger, that's for sure.
