This is my rescue horse Katie, she is 20 years old and yes she is missing an eye. She is due to foal in late august early sept if all goes well.

Just for comparision this was her a week after we got her on March 1

OMG she looks soo much better. World of difference. Has she seen a vet? When is she due? Have they done ultrasounds to make sure the foal is growing adequately and everything is going good? You have your hands fool, but yes soo much better.

Poor girl - bless her heart and thank goodness you came along to save her. I have a soft spot for one-eyed/blinded horses.

I take it she was pregnant in the last photo? I hope the foal is healthy after the poor start it had.
She looks very healthy and happy now, bless her and you too

Wow! I wish my rescues would put weight on that well. She looks so much better! So glad you got her. I took in a sad rescue case in March as well, and she foaled about 3 weeks later. The foal was healthy. I ended up, due to the severity of a hoof problem, taking her to a larger rehab and rescue facility.

Wow. You are truly a blessing to her, and you are doing a great job with her! Sad to hear about her eye, but good to know that she is living a better life. =]

BTW - She sure is a pretty paint! I can't wait to see her baby.
