she is definitely very sweet looking. It is a good thing she is in good hands and not with someone who is going to work her hard and not care. If she will be in pain and have trouble just being a horse, then the e word may be the kindest thing to do. :( if you can get her pasture sound without her being in constant pain, then she can definitely just be an elderly couple's or lonely horse's best friend!
my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)
