Doctors in Pennsylvania update the condition of Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro this morning.

Barbaro was on his feet yesterday in his stall, which is a good sign according to doctors.

The day before, surgeons spent more than five hours pinning together the leg bones he shattered in the Preakness Stakes.

Doctor Dean Richardson says so far Barbaro is doing all the things a horse should be doing while healing, but doctors remain cautious.

They warn it could be months before Barbaro is out of the woods, and that fatal complications could develop at any time.
