This is the most irritating post. Who in there right mind sees a flap on an eye and doesn't call the vet ASAP? You should be ashamed of yourself and do not deserve to own a horse.

Is it his iris or the "pillars" inside of the pupil area? The pillars can look like something that shouldn't be there but they are normal structures. Be great if you could manage to get a picture.

This is really uncalled for and quite the assumptive post. There are normal structures in the eye that can look like they shouldn't be there - as WC pointed out. We don't know the OP's situation. While I agree that eye injuries should never be fooled with whatsoever, this is not a helpful reply to the OP.

What is odd JDI, is that the OP was online this afternoon and posted in another thread after the comment by churum was made, yet she did not reply to this thread, the one she should be watching most closely.

I don't think it is uncalled for. It is inhumane to not seek vet care with something that could be so serious. Oh let's wait until next month when the vet may be coming.
Have you ever even had a piece of dirt in your eye. Anything with your eyes can be VERY painfull

In my opinion you did not need to be so forceful or dismissive in your post. There are ways to say things without insinuating someone isn't fit for horse ownership.

I'm closing the thread because OP doesn't seem to be interested in discussion/opinions.

P.S. I agree with everyone: vet should be called right away in case like this one, Internet is not a best place to look for advices when it can be an emergency issue.

Per OP's request I'm opening the thread again so she could post some pics and get opinions/advices.

And just a reminder, please stay on track with the original topic.

Thank you.
Let me first say the reason I didn't make the call for my vet to come out is because she was already coming out within a week of posting this, not a month. And his eye, as I said before, is normal looking apart from this curiosity. There has been no trauma in the 9 months I've owned him. His eye is not swollen, cornea not scratched, no tearing or discharge and didn't interfere with his vision. In my mind, that is not an emergency. If the vet werent going to be out for another few months, yes, I would call her myself. I knew the vet was coming out within a few days. I don't know what it is for everyone else but it's $65 barn call and $150 emergancy..I have NO problems paying for a vet bill if it's an emergency..but I'm not paying that much for something that doesnt need it.
Also, I'm doing this mostly from my phone(until now) and I didn't notice that people had become agitated. I'm sorry for not being more observant. I wasn't checking this every hour because again, not an emergancy just a curiosity.
With that, the vet came out today and I had her look at him. Nothings wrong, it's normal. Doesnt bother his eyesight. Everything is fine. I very much appreciate everyone's concern and I'm sorry for not replying earlier and addressing the issues that have come about. I know there are some people who think eh it's a horse he'll be ok he'd be okay in the wild. I'm not one of them. I make sure he's taken care of with blankets in winter and fresh cool water with a fan in the summer. I find myself to be a VERY fit horse owner.
Here are the pictures.
The reason I was concerned is because it goes not just a little down, but all the way down his pupil, vet affirmed that it's nothing to be worried about. It didn't look like cauliflower to me but then again I don't eat cauliflower so maybe it does look that way to someone else.


Best pictures I could get, he didn't appreciate the flash very much.
