    Euthanasia is a humane end to an animal's life. I think it is a responsible choice of the owner to have her put to sleep rather than shipping her to slaughter.
    If she was to become a broodmare, where would her foals end up? Do we really need more horses, especially of a popular breed like TBs, one of which you can pick up for free any day?
    Let the owner have her euthanized. It seems to be the best option. You can put your money towards taking a horse out of a neglectful, abusive or slaughter situation.

    The sad truth is - The money and time that would be needed to heal and rehab one horse with a serious injury is money and time that could rescue and train multiple rescue horses without those issues.

    Agree with Gigi and Wildspot. Sometimes putting a horse humanily too sleep is the right thing. As you mentioned you wouls need someone else too train her and with a rehab horse this is all the time not just with work. I undersand its hard but if she was going to be in pain I would want what is best for the animal.. Unsure with horses if after a broken leg type ingury if they feel pain but I am guessing they do?

    This lovely TB has been adopted by a family. She will be joining a small herd consisting of Arabs and cows:) God blessed this horse as the family that adopted her can provide all she needs to have a wonderful life.

    I know. When you looked at this four yr old mare she looked like a baby and very loving and easygoing. She had to be saved and luckily she was:)!!!
