"Equines should score, by veterinarian, no less than a
body condition score of 3 on the Henneke Condition
Scoring Chart to be considered of adequate weight"
I don't trust DEFHR or anyone other than myself, my vet and my horse friends to help me make a determination if one of my Little Old Ladies (and Gents) are at the point when final decisions need to be made.
I've made the decision already within the past three months and I'm still not entirely certain I didn't rush it. Particularly as we just had an extraordinarily mild winter - not that I could have predicted the weather pattern with absolute certainty.
Still, my crusty vet who is NOT a demonstrative kinda guy gave me a hug and told me I'd done the right thing. It helps that he's known me and the horse in question, for almost 30 years. I still cried buckets.

Actually anyone with any kind of animal. All kinds of horror stories are going on with all kinds of animals. The more we learn, the better able we are on how-to end this type of thing.

OHR, I hope you will take a good look at the evidence in this case when it all comes to light, as you will see the red flags we are seeing in other rescues too. I think you posted in the Colorado rescue thread, if not sorry I am mistaken.
