BA, it may be that he's reaching the end of his road. At 30+/- years old, he's had a good, long life.
If he looks tired and worn out, there may be nothing you can do for him except give him release from his failing body. When life becomes a misery, letting them go is the last gift we can give them.
I'd hate to see your family bankrupt themselves, and try to keep an old horse alive who is ready to move on.
Me, BA is a young person, so has no say in how the adults spend their money, or on the kind of care they're willing to give this old horse. So when she says she has no say in what ultimately happens, it's the truth.
