Recently a pony at my barn was diagnosed with "moon blindness". He is completely blind in one eye already and 50% in the other. It is really sad because he is just awesome little guy, I showed him all last summer and have ridden him a lot, he packs all the little kids around for lessons and is the best trail buddy. He started acting up a little we noticed then he spooked one day and threw a kid, thats when we knew something was up because that is unlike him.
We can no longer use him for lessons. But have started training him to voice commands while he still has some vision so he can be safe to handle, he responds to whoa, walk, step up and door now. I doesn't look like he will be able to stay sadly due to insurance. But he is still great for my aunt, myself and the barn owners because he trusts us already so we have had no issues of following us and even heading up on the trails a few times still.
Has anyone else had a horse with this, and what did you end up doing with them, or were they able to stay a pasture buddy.
