Rafalca's Olympic Dreams Are Over

Yeah... that's a shame.

Rafalca the horse returned to the Olympic spotlight Tuesday for her second and final round of competition in equestrian dressage. Stephen Colbert's favorite horse was mathematically eliminated from the individual competition, as was the U.S. in the team medal race... 
...Rafalca, a 15-year-old, German-bred mare, is co-owned by Mitt Romney's wife Ann, and has inspired jokes and financial questions about the Republican presidential candidate. 
[Ann] Romney said Rafalca had another "fabulous" ride and that she's thinking of breeding the German-born mare. "It was wonderful. She was elegant and consistent again. 
We just love her." She said that after Ebeling competes with Rafalca for another year or two, they might try to breed her.
Or Mitt may just nominate Rafalca as the VP candidate at the convention.
...The left-leaning Guardian newspaper headlined its coverage of Rafalca's debut: "Ann Romney's Horse Fails to Win Dressage but Avoids Offending British."
