We have a horse at our barn who has one blind eye and now all the sudden the other one is going. Vet says doubtful anyway to reverse it. (he is an appy and has had issue with this eyes for a long time) Also he is 34 years old. The other eye just went and he is not very happy. He won't be in the stall, he gets too upset. He is turned out in a pasture he knows well but of course he is adjusting. There are three other horses in there and they don't seem to know he needs help. He is not eating much and is very nervous, understandably. Has anyone ever dealt with this? I know of horses who are blind who do function but he is so old, how can we help him transition?
Thanks for any suggestions.
