    I ended up watching the movie at someone's house. I never read the book. I did not like the movie - to many inconsistencies in my opinion. I did not feel the movie script was written by a horse...

    Do you have the finances to support another horse indefinitely? If so, then no harm in taking him and seeing if you can find a better place for him.
