Entropion, cyst, no tear duct...
Luna was diagnosed with entropion (a birth defect in which the eye lid is rolled under and rubs the cornea) this past winter and was scheduled to have surgery this morning. Much to the vet's surprise it corrected itself and the surgery was not necessary.
She was also going to have a cyst removed on her shoulder, but since the eye surgery was unnecessary, I opted not to have that removed as he said it's not harming anything. Besides the cyst, the only other flaw she has is that the tear duct is non-existent in the eye where the entropion was present. He said it's not a major problem except in this hot weather where I need to be very diligent about keeping the flies off the eye.
Anyway, just wanted to share Luna's flaws. I'm sure many of us have imperfect horses that we wouldn't trade for the world.
