So to preserve his quality of life he has been placed in a large stall, fans blowing on him and a paddock he can go in and out of his choosing. I find he rarely leaves stall. Has lost 10 lbs and swelling in hocks from no exercise He does not like to be lead around or lounged.
He gave me 18 years of great trail riding all over. This is not what I envisioned for him. I wanted him to a have the status as "Pasture Ornament". He is not happy, content but am I wrong to want to keep him alive? Should I give him his quality of life back by letting him go to Gods Country?
