Moonblindness, otherwise known as ERU among other monikers, is *E-Equine* *R-Recurrant* *Uveitis* when the eye becomes inflamed over and over with each attack (inflamation) robbing the horse of more of his eyesight. Treatment has come a long way and often if caught early there are things that can be done that will slow the process or even cure it. Each attack has to be treated aggressively and they are painful attacks. Unfortunately I didn't have all the resources I know of now. Plus Cheno is so stoic... He must have had it for years and I didn't realize what was going on.
If you do a search for either ERU or Moonblindness you will get lots of info.. Appy's tend to be more susceptable for some reason, immune deficeincy I assume.
