You're right, if you take him you'll be his last owner. Are you prepared to take him on knowing you may not be able to ride him for very long, and care for an unrideable horse for another 10 or more years? Are you willing to forego buying another rideable animal while he's still alive?
If you can't honestly say yes, then don't take him.
I have a 26 y/o who came to me at 19. I had to retire him at 20, because he has arthritic hocks and back trouble. I knew when I took him that I'd be his last owner. I'll care for him as long as he's physically able to be a pasture pet. Once it starts being too hard for him to get around, he'll be laid to rest.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
