Damaged Facial Nerve?
I have the opportunity to get a coming 2yr old Bashkir Curly.....the only catch is, she damaged a facial nerve last summer. I know nothing about this kind of thing, does anyone have any experience with this? Is this something I should run from or is it managable? She was checked by a vet when it happened and she has improved from how she originally was after the injury but she still has a slightly droopy lip and she is a slow eater, they also said she probably can't wear a bit when she is broke. None of those things are any big deal for me. I'm not really looking for another horse but I've always loved the breed and she is close by and is a VERY good deal, I just don't want major problems down the road with her.
Any advise?? I'm suppose to be getting new pics of her tomorrow.
Also, if a horse is going to turn grey, what age will they start turning? She is currently a bay but is out of a grey stud and they have 2 horses from this same stud that where born dark or bay and are now greys so I'm curious if she will also turn??
