Rescuing a TB in Panama

Hi everybody. My name is Rafael. This is my first post in the forum. Me and my family are from Argentina, but have been living in Panama for the last 5 years. After many years without riding, we are back in the horse world. I ve been a medium level rider but my wife is an expert rider. She compited in jump and dressage for more than 20 years.
Some months ago we bought our first horse in Panama, a 4 years old quarter horse. My wife trained him in english style, and now she is already teaching kids with this horse, but that's another story.
A month ago we received the offer of a beautifull TB that was just leaving the tracks. After a lot of reading and visits to the horse we decided to keep him.
He is a 5 years old gelding, and one-eyed. The first time we saw him, he was just out of the track. HE was very spooky and nervous. Today one month later when we closed the deal he was absolutely calm and receptive. Im sure that with a couple of month of retraing we will have a wonderfull, big hearted horse.
Im posting some pictures I took today while his actual trainer (and his son!) hold him. The pictures are not the best, its difficult to see how tall he is.
By the way, I took his kuttest side, his missing eye is the right one.
Hes been one eyed for more than four years. I know that horses do great with just one eye. My wife even won a competition with a one eyed horse.

Would love to receive your comments.
