Even his "okay" eye doesn't look all that okay to me
I'm seeing irritation and discharge coming from it too. He needs a vet now
, there's not much of anything that we can suggest to help him because he needs professional, medical
Now, this is going to seem very rude to you but I think it needs to be said and I feel it's best to not sugarcoat things or else some of the impact of the truth might be lost.
a mortgage payment to pay for a horse that's blind in at least one eye (and judging from the appearance of the other, he may be totally blind before very long).
You have a wife and kids and are now behind on a mortgage payment. What in the world
were you thinking?
I can appreciate that you wanted to stop this horse from going to slaughter, but you are endangering your family's home and you can't even give him the care that he needs. He shouldn't have to suffer and wait until you can afford to have a vet see him. That's cruel and it may be doing more damage than you know.
Did you even ask how he lost his eye? What if he's got cancer (which isn't uncommon around the eyes on horses with pink skin there, just so you know)? What then? Can you afford the cost of euthanasia and disposal? Are you going to have it treated since you love him and can't bear to part with him? How are you going to afford that?
This is one of my biggest peeves, that people "rescue" a horse (although, since you actually bought
him, he doesn't qualify as a "rescue" anyway) but can't afford to give them the care that they so desperately need.
