My thoughts ... take care of him untill you can find him a home. Don't take him to auction or he will end up worse off.
If you absolutely can't take him in call a local vet and see if you can just relieve him of his suffering
As said, can't really keep him very long here. If all else fails, I'll try and find a way to get him euthanized, but the costs of it are pretty pricey here, plus finding something to do with the body.
Money's tight, and honestly there isn't much of a way I can afford to feed him over the winter, especially with him being as skinny as he is. I don't even have another stall I could put him in, haha. So, him staying here is out of the question.
