I am sorry for the poor dear horse, the owner and yourself. Very sad. That sort of decision is one no one ever wants to face. My family and relations - even my husband - have always thought I am too picky w my horse's diets, but then none has ever foundered. I know from watching experiences of family and others, it usually isn't from lack of care or love especially where grass pasture is the culprit - and b/c it is preventable and the cause seems obvious after the fact - it can make the an owner's heart doubly heavy.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
