Uraeus (Brego) had surgery

Viggo Mortensen with Uraeus in Lord of the RingsThe New Zealand Herald reported on May 24 that Uraeus, the horse who played "Brego" in Lord of the Rings, suffered a severe colic. Viggo Mortensen paid for emergency surgery, and the 22-year-old stallion is doing well. See Equine movie star almost loses plot for details. Mortensen evidently said in an email to the horse's caretakers that he looked forward to seeing Brego again this year after completing a project in Hungary (Good).
