If you do end up putting him down you can do it knowing that you showed him tons of love at the end and you made his last time here very wonderful.
I have never seen him interact positively with any of the others. I am going to try and get a pasture set up big enough for him and 1 other horse and see how he goes though. Since he has been yarded separately to the others his limp has subsided a huge amount though, probably because he hasn't been chasing them around.

Thanks AB, I do try to provide the best for my horses, which makes it that much harder when faced with letting them go.

Well one went down with colic and had to PTS a month the the day his buddie just passed away. It was heartbreaking to watch him at the end he had no life left in him at all the vet didnt think he had the energy to fight anything so any kind of infection etc could have taken hold

But I think it was mainly old age cause sooner was 33 when she died, but I did notice a change in her after the minnie died too. But did that lead to her death, I don't think so. I was around 13 when this happened though. Only about 4 years ago maybe 5.
This is what worries me. Honestly, 6 months ago if it wasn't for the grey hairs popping up all over him you wouldn't have believed he was in his 20s. But this last month, since Trojan has been gone, he is acting it more and more every day.
