I'm so sorry that you're going through this... He is a beautiful little guy, and he will absolutely be in my thoughts. It sounds like you're really trying to make the best decision for him, which is great. Hugs <3

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I thought I should let you all know that there is a couple that is considering taking him that is willing to do the surgery knowing that he may never be sound. He's still happy and friendly and the vet came out to look at him and said he looks about the same so at least that's better than worse.

I hope you are able to get him fixed up.....even if that means giving him to someone else.

He is the most beautiful foal and I hope he turns out well!

Oh my, best wishes... he is lucky to have been born to such a compassionate bunch :)

Theo left for his new home yesterday. The woman that took him is friends with a vet that is willing to help out with him. He really couldn't have found a better home and we are all so thankful for this. Before he left it was very evident he was feeling better. He even tried to kick out at me and rear up with me close by which of course wasn't okay but deep down I was happy that he was feeling well enough to misbehave. He also walked and loaded into the trailer like a pro and hardly seemed lame at all. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers during this hard time. He may never be the show horse we were all hoping he would be but at least he has a future. That's all we can ask for.

Theo is doing great and his new owners love him. He's getting the vet attention he needs and the love he deserves. I miss him greatly but it is nice to have my mare back. He's walking a lot better and seems almost completely sound. Thank you all for the positive comments and advice.
