Why is this animal being kept alive?

It has almost been a year since Barbaro was rushed to the New Bolton Center like he was the head of a nation.

Extraordinary steps have been taken to keep this horse alive. This poor animal has been put through several surgeries and extensive physical therapy. The horse's owners clearly have plenty of money or animal health insurance.

One does not know whether the horse is in pain or even wants to stick around for all of the obvious reasons.

My question is, why is this poor animal being kept alive? For humanity reasons or the ego of the vet.

If only Barbaro would have put together a living will, the answers would be known.
