Indeed.

Slaves were hard enough to control and if the owners did not show some compassion to the old, the young would just run away as they saw no light at the end of the misery tunnel.

It was in the owners best interest to try to keep his slaves motivated and productive.

You are just making that up.

Slave-owners generally were not necessarily malicious people.
The strong do what they can, the weak accept what they must.
