He's getting fed next to nothing now :) and has plumped up ten-fold since the 'now' picture on here that was taken a month and a half ago.
I'm wondering if he's a rig. As that neck (he hasn't been worked, lunged etc) is just unnaturally cresty right now and it's gotten another 2 inches on top of the picture already; not to mention the rest of his behavior. He is acting very stallion-y lately.
More often than not, they would perform an enucleation on the horse.
No, you don't really think about it, do you? I was so shocked when I picked him up like this. I didn't know if it was an old or new injury. But he copes well with it,
I just have to know when to duck when he swings his Boof head around to look through his right eye over his left shoulder
