Vision loss

I’ve known a few horses over the years that had vision problems. My friend’s horse, Ring, lived well even after losing his eye later in life. Phydeux, a kind old appaloosa, lost sight in both eyes and coped remarkably well, especially with the help of his compassionate field mate.

Below are just a few thoughts I have on coping with a visually impaired horse.
