To Beat explains that Louis first showed signs of colic on Sunday, during the Magna Racino Spring Tour where Beat competes. "Thank goodness there is a clinic here at the Equestrian Park Magna Racino and we got professional help from the start. In the end it was decided that a surgery unfortunately was unavoidable. To wait would mean too great a risk, " Beat says on the health of the 12-year-old son of the Lord Z, owned by the Swiss Paul Bücheler.

"We were extremely lucky as no bowel had to be removed, thank God! Now we must wait the usual four to five days after surgery (Sunday night) to see that everything is optimally again," says Beat who has yet to write off the Olympics. "My thanks go to Dr. Hagen Zappe and his team," Beat says.
