onetoomany - The original option of "selling" him would be back to the old owner where he could just live our his life in a pasture, she becomes very attached to her horses and I know she wouldn't sell him to anyone else knowing what could happen to him. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for your input!
peggysue - I'll ask the BO when I get the chance, I can't remember the brand. Thanks.

Oh, aj, I'm so sorry to hear that. It is always hard to watch your beloved friend go through something like that. I don't have any advise other that what has already been suggested but I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and your horse and you are in my prayers. Just keep working with him. Besides sale or euthenasia, one other option that you might look into is if he is well broke, bombproof, and sound without heavy riding is look into donating him to a therapeutic riding center. They use horses help lots of people from children who are born with birth defects or mental ******ation to adults who have suffered brain or spinal cord injuries. The horses that they use are mostly kept in a walk and very well taken care of.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
