This is not true. There are specific withholding periods to be observed for all drugs, and their use at some point in the animal's lifetime does not preclude the consumption of their meat. A lot of our "knackered" horses are destined for the pet food industry and also for human consumption in Europe.

A horse that is suffering the after effects of laminitis is a horse that as you said needs great care. I would strongly consider having it euthanased. Begrudgingly keeping the horse just so it is alive does no one any favours, nor does foisting a problem onto someone else.

dude, seriously, how old are you? are we here about the divorce or trying to help this fellow find a good home for this horse? Jeez some people!
Im a child of divorce and i hope you understand why he has ignored your comment, If you were a child of divorce you would not ask the above question.

best of luck with finding it a new home, would be a shame to put down such a nice mannered horse, im sure many horse lovers would love to take in such a horse (i'd take him in if i lived near by and lived on a acreage)

Call the zoo.
Explain the situation and they may be able to give him a home for a while before he's... Ummm... Put to good use. (Humanely)

It sounds horrible, but I know Mogo zoo have a happy little horse paddock for horses just to roam around in until one day they go for a walk...


Edit: id much prefer to see him live out his days happy in a paddock somewhere Til he died naturally or humanely if there is injuries etc... That being said, I'd also prefer to see an animal carcass get used rather that buried.

Thanks for the advice, I had the farrier out to trim his feet last week, and he really has trouble walking now. That is usual for a day or so after a trim with many horses, but if he doesn't walk better soon the issue will how to put him out of his misery.
He was very good when being trimmed, easy to catch and just stood there without complaint, which just makes it harder as apart from his feet he is pretty much faultless.

When I read the title "get rid of a horse" it is really concerning.

The horse abattoirs buy at horse sales and from anybody who is naive enough to give away horses for free. Professionals in the horse industry know this and make sure their unwanted horses are not killed.

Horse meat is approved for human consumption in some states.

So what happened to the horse? New home, dead or eaten?
