Here's the deal. Euth is not necessary. Horsie can live with my friend till the end of his days. I mentioned it wasn't an option because I didn't want a zillion replies shouting 'euth the horse!'.
But it's not an ideal situation for an old guy. The horse would be happier turned out as a pasture puff. For financial reasons, retirement boarding is also not an option.
There is no hurry. There is no emergency. To the poster who said it takes a while to find a home...that's not a problem. I'm just asking for advice on finding him a new home.
My friend is not throwing away a horse because she wants something new and shiny. We are merely evaluating options to give this sweet old guy a happy retirement. Not sure why that warrants a 'you suck'.
If we can't find a new home, he'll just stay where he is.
