 I posted on my facebook page. I dont want to have a discussion about "why I dont try this or do that". We have tried 3 vets and 3 treatments, one treatment twice. We have a super nice 3 year old that has EPM and will not be able to safely be ridden. We have a small place and no room to keep him for the rest of his life. We are pretty much resigned to the fact that we are putting him down but I thought I would see if anyone has a place for him.

He is low man on the totem pole- so he would be safe with babies that you might wean or an old horse that needs a friend. He gets around fine, is easy to handle, looks great and is an easy keeper.
He could not be in a huge area of land just turned out to be unwatched as he can not fight off stray dogs or coyotes in his condition. He cant kick to fend for himself nor can he rear up to paw something as his rear end is too weak. But he is fine otherwise.

Next time try converting the .png to .jpg before you start resizing. .png is the highest kb format. Converting it to .jpg will cut the kb size by 4/5s

Nowhere near me... I can't take him but figured I could find someone that could around here.
He is a pretty guy, I hope you find someone to take care of him!!

Thanks STPG! I seem to be detailed in my sale ads, not so much in my depression of finding this horse a home. Yes, he is located near Tulsa Okla area.

I have had some interest but they want to know his breeding which is totally irrelevant as he is not going somewhere where someone thinks they will ride him because he is by DTF, I am smarter than that. He will not go with his papers.

Which is why we are seriously leaning towards putting him down vs the liability of injuring a person or him:

If Hero wasn't an @ss, I would tell you to just bring him down and turn him out... I am sure he would adjust, but in the mean time.....?  If it comes to it, there is always this option.

I don't want to steal the thread, but I have a daughter of Easy Jet that I've been looking for a good home for. It has to be a good retirement/pasture pet home. She is in Louisiana if you know of anyone interested. She's still in good shape for her age.

Poor guy!  I wish I had the space, but I just don't :(

Could you maybe market him as like maybe a halter/showmanship project horse for a family just wanting to do groundwork type of things or just wanting to teach kids responsibilty and horse ownership?  Or is that too much to ask of him?  (as in trotting on a lead)  Asssuming that you make it very clear that he can't ever be rode, but would that expand your marketing base?

You say he has epm, is he still needing treatments or is it more like permament damage now?  If you were closer I would take him, I have an empty barn and empty 8acre pasture, coyotes are not an issue here. I cant ride not sure if I would be able to in the future but miss having a horse out in the pasture.

That is a brilliant idea. Not so much on the trot for show purposes- that is where he shows his weakness behind although not terrible and he no longer falls down. Thank you for the thought.

I guess the damage is too much for him to recover? He has been treated by three vets and 3 diff meds- one of them twice.
