In general, I'm going say no. Mainly because the cost of feed but also because there are SO MANY people looking to find pasture ornament homes for their horses! However, we had this absolutely beautiful appendix show hunter at our barn who was going blind in one eye that was making him spook pretty badly (he was a top A show hunter, completely bombproof, and excellent kids horse before he started going blind!). We found a home for him that just wanted a pet who they could occasionally jump once in a while for some really easy trail riding. They took him and still love him. It took a good 2 or 3 months (listed on equine.com) to find him that home. If he's gentle enough you could call up some equine therapy center and see if they'll take him (tax deductible!). That's where we retire several of our school horses to.
