not to "beat a dead horse" (sorry for the really bad pun) but its true, maybe it had a long lasting medical condition, or it could quite possibly have been something severe, maybe the horse colicked, was badly injured, had some kind of reaction to an allergy, theres thousands of reasons this horse could have been put down...
even if it was relatively healthy, if down the road a medical condition could be seriously debilitating, its better to put the horse down before it gets so bad the animal is in complete misery. and hate to be fatalistic and all but alot of people see horses as income. if a horse cant produce, or otherwise unable to carry its own weight then they will get rid of it.
dont come to hurried conclusions before you get all the facts. If youre new there and you dont personally know the person then you cant make a judement call on one persons beliefs and opinions. Did you ask the BO if she knew the reasons orf did you just ask her about the health? like i said it could have been a sudden fatal ilness, reaction, or injury that requires euthanasia... im not trying to be mean . . . i just think you need more info before you condemn this person as a bad person
