Our former jumper, McCall, went blind in the summer of 2009. We put him on stall rest for about 2-3 months. He is a generally hot horse so he almost went insane, so we knew he had to come out of stall rest. We decided to put him in the pasture and see how he adapted, and knew if he didn't adapt, there'd be no way we could make him suffer. We filled any pot holes and took out anything potentially dangerous and we put him in there with one of our mares. He adapted flawlessly! Since he already knew that pasture before he went blind, I think that's what helped. But he gallops around like a normal horse; he just can't see!
