"Usually you know well in advance if you are going to be in a situation

Ah Whitney, to have a crystal ball would be a wonderful thing. Life doesn't
always deal us the hand that we desire, anticipate or for which we are
prepared. Some of life's situations are not foreseeable. Sending a "buddy"
to slaughter would be a nightmare that would never go away, ever. I have
been a breeder of horses for 30 years (Quarterhorses, Palominos, Arabians,
Pintos) and I have unknowingly sold horses into situations that were worse
than slaughter would have been. Thank goodness, those instances have been
less than a handful, but it has happened. Not everyone has their priorities
straight, nor does everyone view choices in the same fashion. Not all
horses, though, that are sold to slaughter, are someone's "buddy."

Personally, I wouldn't just sit and wait for "the tide to turn". Usually
you know well in advance if you are going to be in a situation where a
couple hundred bucks "is a big deal". So if you're heading in the
direction where you will be faced with a "choice that hurts", like whether
to feed your children or feed your horse, and you only wait for the "tide
to turn", then you have no business with either. The couple hundred bucks
will keep you going for another week or so, and then what? . . The
"slaughter" of your "buddy" will have been for nothing. There are ALWAYS
