I actually agree with rescues euthing unsound horses. There are so many sound, sane horses needing homes that it doesn't make sense to me for a space to be filled by one of little use.
Obviously if it's your own old, unsound horse then it has value and use - but that's not what I am meaning with rescue horses.
I agree too, I think that in the past people have seen rescue centres as a place for elderly and unsound horses that for whatever reason people couldn't or didn't want to keep any more but all that's changing and its wrong that a useful young horse with its whole life in front of it should have to die for the sake of one that's had its life - not the same as retirement homes for horses where people pay for them to be there
Its unfortunate that there is no enforced warranty system in the US at sales so what it says on the label has to be what you get. A lot of well meaning people that can provide homes for horses are coming away from sales with animals that are unsound or total nut jobs often pumped full of sedatives or pain meds
