    Delete Please don't think I was saying you were a bad owner. That's not anything like I meant. I meant it as wishful thinking on my part. The rescuer in me spoke without thinking how it sounded. It's nothing against on you and I didn't mean to make you feel bad. Auctions just scare me. I know some people (friends of the family actually) who bought at the auction and they had no business owning a horse at all. Again sorry.

    Ohno, its no ones fault. I suppose that im making myself feel like a bad owner because I don't want to take months and months and vet bill after vet bill trying to firgure out whats wrong with him.

    The part that sucks... is now we are never going to know what the issue was.... I'm really curious what is wrong with him... but by you selling him now, maybe someone who has the time and the money to put into him will end up with him and maybe they'll solve it, you know??? Things work out... don't beat yourself up.

    May be putting him down is not a bad idea (although yes, it does cost money too). Unless rescue will step up (or someone who will feel very sorry for the guy) I'm afraid he'll end up on the way to Canada (or Mexico). I know it sounds horrible but it's just a reality of market at the moment unfortunately. Bringing him to "non-meat" auction will not make much of difference I'm afraid.

    What are the chances of a bloodwork up giving the answer to what is wrong this Delete's boy?
    And is it possible a rescue group or Vet school be willing to do the tests free or at a reduced cost?

    It would be a shame for Delete to have to auction him off or put down without knowing it was truely necessary.
