There's not a single person here who would be happy to put a horse to sleep. Hang around a while and see the massive grief we feel we when lose our animals. I think you are misjudging us. We all love horses or we would not be here.
One of the worst days in my life was when I put my dog to sleep, it was just sheer hell. But he was in a coma and even with the help of vets and meds for 8 hours he wouldn't wake up. He'd been ill, and it was time. His ashes are sitting in a box above me right now, his photo is next to my bed. That day at the vets cost me $4k, and I came home with a box.
Please don't act morally superior, just because you have a different point of view. Get to know us a bit before you do that.
