Well, this is a first post for me and day 1 of my membership so I hope to get some great responses! Well, here it goes. . .
I am looking to purchase a reining horse, I found one BUT, he is blind in his left eye and as it looks, he has long pasterns. I know that it leads to lameness and tendon issues but I am not sure if his are severe enough. So before I go and look at him I would love to hear what you guys think. After training on a blind right-eyed horse I saw no issues with it, yet I didn't own her so:
- Are his pasterns to long ?
- Are blind horses hard to own or any advice ?
