Sorry for no update! The vet I use was out of town last night, the vet my grandparents use was supposed to be out yesterday but called at like eight saying that there was an emergency and he couldn't make it until this morning and yet here I am still waiting for him to show... I guess my grandparents didnt find it urgent? Ugh! His eye does seem to be less irritated and I didnt see any gunk there. I will take pictures and let you know what the vet says. He should be here any minute...

UGH!!! Vets!

Okay, the vet just left. I was disappointed by how simple he made the process. He used a dye thing to see if there were any scratches on the cornea, he saw two, gave antibiotics for me to give three times a day, showed me how to tell when the eye is dilated, and left. I was thinking the whole time, okay, you know it is scratched but what scratched it?
UGH! The eye did look better though. It was partially opened and the lid was not as visible. His eye looked cloudy but the vet said he is able to see just not as well. Bleh.

Well, I'm glad that it wasn't anything more serious than that. It is a very nasty and horrible thing when a horse gets a thistle or splinter in their eye so I am very happy it wasn't that. Sounds like he should be well on his way to being healthy again.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yes, I am happy that it wasn't serious but I don't know, I am just worried maybe it is still up there. We have been good with making sure he gets his meds when necessary. Unfortunately his eye has closed back up :/ He was looking good when the vet was here, of course! Ahaha hopefully he will be fully healed before I leave for two week on next Saturday, not tomorrow but the next Saturday.

His eye is almost completely open now and his pupil is completely dilated like we want it. He is getting better really fast!

If he is outside he will need to have that eye protected from the sun.

That is what I thought but the vet didn't seem very concerned with it. He said just keep his fly mask on in the daylight =/ This guy really isnt giving me any reasons to start using him as my personal vet...

A fly mask provides a certain amount of screening from the sun. So that is good that you are doing that.

Far better than nothing.
