If picking up her back legs is her ONLY problem, than I agree, it's stupid and in my oppinion, cruel to take her to slaughter.
If she has other problems, and is "crazy"? Then I don't think it's a bad decision, but judging by their post, I'm going to go with the first; she has one problem, and they don't want to deal with it.
This stuff happens a lot. Tad, the morgan colt I bought a while back, ended up in the kill pen because his owners were going through a divorce, and he was the wife's "baby", and the husband wanted to get back at her. My friend's colt, Eli, went to the kill pen because a kid was bad, and that was their punishment, their 4-H horse getting killed.
If it weren't for the same kill buyer who bought them both, but hates seeing a good horse go to waste, they'd be dead.
